Airtel TRACE Music Star winner, Tiwah Hillz, is set to perform at the Misty Summer Experience pre-independence day concert on 23rd October, which will be headlined by Congolese superstar Fally Ipupa.
Speaking of the event Tiwah expressed her pleasure of the opportunity to perform at the pre independence day concert with an international artiste of Fally Ipupa’s caliber . Apart from sining the national anthem she will also perform her hit single “Beautiful” that features US artiste Keri Hilson. This will be the first time for many local fans to see her perform the song live.
“Beautiful”, is about women seeing past their imperfections and loving the skin they’re in. Hilson, who’s become something of an inspiration and mentor to the competition winner, wrote the single. “My experience of working with her was something one can only dream of. The delivery that was put into the song was outstanding; it all turned out beautiful – just like the song title,” Tiwah Hillz says.
Born in Lusaka, Zambia in 1992, Tiwah Hillz, as she’s now known, was already composing her own songs at the tender age of 13. She continued to pursue her passion as she grew, ultimately entering a music competition that would push her into the spotlight and onto our television screens.
With over 2.7 million registered calls last year, Airtel TRACE Music Star proved to be the biggest competition in Africa. The finale that occurred in Lagos, Nigeria, was a star-studded affair, which saw Tiwah Hillz being crowned the continent’s next top talent by industry heavyweights that included the DRC’s Fally Ipupa. “My journey after winning the competition has been amazing. This experience has opened so many doors for me. I thank TRACE Music Stars for helping me make all my dreams come true,” said Tiwah Hillz.
Other local artists at the event include Danny, Afunika among others. For more information about the Misty summer Experience concert visit the Misty Jazz restaurant and cafe official Facebook page.
