Award-winning music promoter Daniel Masaiti reckons its high time the creative sector be opened since most artistes are starving.
Masaiti, who doubles as philanthropist, said nothing was stopping musicians from holding shows as long as they adhere to the Covid-19 regulations.
“As a sector we need to copy from our neighbours and see how they are holding lives shows since we have worsted a year doing nothing.
“Inactivity has cost us a lot and we need to start shows minimising on numbers while adhering to the rules.
“We cant have a whole sector where we are not doing anything, ” he said.
Masaiti hailed arts regulatory chiefs, among them music promoters who are working tirelessly to address the welfare of artistes.
“We are living in difficult times where we need to to assist each other as was the cased here where my fellow promoters led by Chipaz and MacDonald Kachingwe came and assisted these artistes.
“Its hard that a person of Josphat Somanje’s calibre are struggling at home.
“What’s so touching is that this person is a breadwinner who is also an employer.
“we need each other during such trying times as an industry, ” he added .
