- History of Prophet Bushiri’s Crossover
The first Crossover Night was held at Bingu International Conference in Lilongwe in 2014. The second, the third and the fourth were held at FNB Stadium in South Africa amassing an attendance of over 100 000 people. In 2018, the Crossover Night was held at Pretoria Showgrounds. In 2019, the Crossover returned to FNB Stadium.
- What’s new about 2020/21 Crossover?
The 2020/21 Crossover is called the Miracle Night Crossover. It will be held in Malawi after 6 years. Malawi’s biggest soccer cathedral, Bingu National Stadium (BNS), will host this event. Tens of thousands of people are expected to fly in Lilongwe to attend this great event.
- What’s the connection between Crossover Event and tourism?
In South Africa, Prophet Bushiri’s Crossover events were deemed number one tourism puller in Gauteng. Being a province with no access to beaches and shores, Gauteng benefited immensely from tens of thousands of people who flocked in to province—covering transportation, hospitality, catering, visits, hawkers, etc. The excitement is that what Gauteng experienced, will now be in Lilongwe. The question is: Is Lilongwe ready?
- What is Lilongwe?
Lilongwe is the capital city of Malawi, on the Lilongwe River. At its heart, woodland trails weave through the Lilongwe Wildlife Centre. This sanctuary shelters rescued and injured animals, including lions, monkeys and crocodiles. Shops and restaurants dot the Old Town district. The Capital City district, also called City Centre, is home to the 21st-century, Chinese-built Parliament building and central government offices.
The city is also an hour’s drive to the breath-taking Lake Malawi, rated Africa’s best fresh water lake, with its blue allure that dazzles the eye as you sit on its sandy, clean beaches.
