In a world where we mostly see that everyone is out for themselves, it is always refreshing to be proved otherwise. Malawi has always been known by local entrepreneurs that copying of business ideas is order of the day. When one sees that one thing worked for so and so, the next minute they are trying it out. It has brought a lot of “that’s Malawi for you” attitude at a lot of negativity around it.
However, one man has decided to surprise us as he thinks otherwise. Renowned MC Mr. Chisomo Mwamadi of Tvents Consult despite being in the same business thinks it’s great more people are opening up to the idea of working as MCs even though that means more competition for him. He shared his thoughts titled My Take On The Recent MC Outbreak on a popular Facebook group Za.…Ukwati……Chinkhoswe Fashion
We at The Vow are proud of Mr. Mwamadi and we applaud him. It’s encouraging to be reminded that there are people who believe there is room for everyone and that you do not have to bring other people down in order for you to succeed.

Below is Chisomo Mwamadi’s post:
“Over the last few weeks, I have enjoyed debates (both on this forum and elsewhere) on the influx of a new crop of MCs that are mushrooming from every corner of town as did prophets in the last two years or so.
I must say the arguments that have been thrown into the debate have been interesting and am compelled to put in my 2 kwacha.
I am (personally) excited with the amount of interest the MC industry has generated over the years and the coming in of new faces is both good and healthy for the industry (if you look at it broadly) with a BUT.
Let’s face it, no matter how good you are, you cannot be at 4 functions per day meaning there is space for everyone. The market is huge and growing every single day.
This influx (from where I am standing) might bring in healthy competition which could spur growth and improve (am sure) the standards.
It also offers clients a wider choice depending on their needs (zokonda kusiyana).
So, to all of you joining this industry, welcome.
We are here to support you through and through if you mean well. Do not hesitate to get in touch with any seasoned MC for advice and support. It’s important that you understand the industry, its demands, its challenges, it’s dynamics and be patient with your growth.
Just like any other industry, you cannot circumvent growth and to do that, you need mentorship and serious guidance. We have seen others start and not last the mile, ena mpakana kulandidwa microphone.
Being an MC just like Public Speaking is an art which has its techniques.
Issues of understanding customer demands, meeting customer expectations, audience analysis, customer care, etc come into play.
There are sacrifices to be made if you are to stand and be counted and a lot of learning along the way.
Sikuti aliyense odziwa kulankhula ndi MC. It is a good starting point but there is a lot that goes into being a good MC.
To all my elders in the game, let’s embrace the new comers, open our doors, osachita nsanje and help them find their feet.
Anyuwani nanu, osakula mtima, dzichepetseni, phunzirani and enjoy the journey.
By the way, Tvents Consult will start the 2020 MC training sessions in Lilongwe from 22 to 23 February then Blantyre. Details to follow.”
