A54 Entertainment: With so many virtual, live music concerts and performances on social media, it’s hard to know what’s worth watching. Music Time in Africa host, Heather Maxwell, though, makes it easy. She gets us straight to the best gigs on the continent. This weekend Lamisi is the one to watch.
