LILONGWE: As Western lifestyles and fashion influences a lot of Malawi youths these days, there is a threat that one day all of Malawian culture will disappear. Youths in Lilongwe have come up with a creative way of preserving the culture through fashion and music.

Essim Shaib one of the designers says “It is now time for Malawi, to start producing their own products other than depending much on western products, a campaign which some other countries such as south Africa, Nigeria and Botswana have already started”.

“Malawi can also do it”, proving this statement are Youngsters Known as Sungununu Crew, from Lilongwe who have introduced a fashion line known as Miyambi Wear.The Music Trio comprising of Janta, Essim and Gowa, named the fashion line.

Miyambi which means proverbs as a way of promoting a “be who you are” altitude to the Malawian youths and make them realize that it is not a time wasting thing to dream bigger than their physical, social or economic borders. It is simple, easy and cheap to be who you are than to copy and try to be someone you are not because you don’t know the active ingredients in their recipe.

Miyambi wear, which currently is specializing on t-shirt designs, aims at creating exportable products showcasing quality craftsmanship and African style. Sungununu crew will in the coming months launch the clothing line.
