Aidan invited to perform fan-favourite ‘RITMU’ in London

Following a massive success with his Eurovision track ‘RITMU’, Aidan was invited to perform alongside his team of dancers in London. 

The song was an immediate hit with Maltese audiences given its catchy and dance-inducing rhythm. And it seems as though international audiences dug the song as well. 

With a YouTube official video boasting over 87K views, the Ritmu team, donning cowboy hats and stylish patterns, took to the stage to an audience of support. 

Despite not winning the Malta Eurovision Song Contest to represent the island in Turin, Ritmu still placed second and went on to occupy a place on many radio playlists. 

The song kept number 1 place in Malta for three consecutive weeks, whilst also being the most played song in all of Malta. 

Speaking to this newsroom, Aidan said that: ‘It was an honour for me to perform among some of the best bands and artists around Europe, including Sam Ryder and Chanel.  I was actually surprised how much the fans knew about Ritmu and that they actually sang with the Maltese lyrics!  

‘I am humbled by all the support and love from all the fans and I am currently working on my next performance in Madrid – Spain.  We’ll be having some cool surprises there!’ said Aidan.

50 tonnes of waste collected during general election and Pope visit

Around 50 tonnes of waste were picked up by the Cleansing and Maintenance Division during the general election campaign and Pope Francis’ visit.

The past six week were immensely busy for this division as the events produced a numerous amount of waste all over Malta were events, rallies and meetings were held. 

Director General Ramon Deguara explained how road cleaning was particularly challenging, as workers were picking up several items left behind. The workers would be present after every event to clean up but also to disinfect the zones. The type of waste most picked up were food receipts and bottles. 

Pre-planning was organised, Deguara explained, to ensure that 24 hours after the event it would seem as though nothing had taken place. Deguara also highlighted how weather patterns did not always help the workers as strong winds and sometimes rain battered the events and following clean ups. 

Deguara thanked all the workers for their time and energy as they kept the streets and cities in Malta clean and safe for further events to take place.
