Maltese DJ Debrii celebrates 10 years of music with party at The Club House, Gianpula Village

Maltese DJ & Producer Daniel Briffa AKA Debrii is celebrating 10 years in the local music scene with a one-off party at The Club House, Gianpula Village.

Starting his musical journey at youth parties hosted by student organisations at age 15, Debrii went on to become one of the most recognisable faces in the Maltese nightlife scene. 

From spectacular local sets such as those at G7 Events & Isle of MTV to waving Malta’s flag at international gigs such as World Club Dome in Germany and the number 30 club in the world, Noa Beach Club for Zrce Spring Break in Croatia, Debrii has been making major waves. 

Debrii has also had a number of memorable moments beyond the confines of Malta’s clubs, with his Simpatiċi Theme remix garnering close to 100,000 views on TikTok in addition to his weekly Friday night radio show on Vibe FM.

To celebrate 10 years of memorable moments in the Maltese music scene whilst looking towards the future with optimism, the local DJ will be hosting ‘A Night With Debrii’ at The Club House, Gianpula Village on 7th December, the eve of a public holiday. Attendees can expect a night of Debrii’s own club classics, signature mashups and hands-in-the-air vibes, with special guest sets from Miggy, David and Matt Mason.

Malta will have welcomed 2.2 million tourists by end of 2022

Tourism Minister revealed today that by the end of this year, Malta will have welcomed an estimated 2.2 million tourists to the island. 

The minister revealed the statistic whilst discussing the financial estimates which the Tourism Ministry has authority over. 

This rate is double that registered last year as well as being higher than what was originally estimated for this year itself. 

It was also noted that in the first nine months of this year, the tourists visiting the island spent well over 12,700,000 nights. Bartolo also highlighted that Malta will, by the end of the year, reach 89% of its air connectivity which it once boasted pre-COVID-19.

He also said that the winter schedule has more than 70 direct routes to and from Malta. Government deputy Edward Zammit Lewis also noted how the tourists are also visiting Malta during the winter months and not just the summer.

Maltese commentary should be provided for World Cup says local sports journalist

Maltese commentary should be provided for World Cup says local sports journalist

Local sports journalist and commentator Christian Micallef took to social media to propose that TVM should provide Maltese community for the 2022 World Cup.

Micallef said that he is pained to see the national station making such a big effort to cover the World Cup but at the same time not providing commentary in Maltese. 

‘The number might be low, but there are colleagues in TVM who are able to provide commentary for these matches. If the national TV station is showing these matches for Maltese spectators, then it needs to give the opportunity for commentators who use our native language.’

‘I don’t think there exists a country in the world which acquires the exclusive rights for this tournament, but does not provide commentary with the native language.’

People are only just learning how to pronounce Qatar

People are only just learning how to pronounce Qatar

Well, it had to take the literal launch of the World Cup in the country for people to realise how to actually spell the word ‘Qatar.’ 

Running from November 20th to the 18th of December, Qatar will be hosting the 22nd FIFA World Cup for the first time. This did not come with its backlash however, with many pointing out various scandals and issues surrounding this year’s tournament.

And as people tune in, many are taking to twitter and other social media platforms to express their utter disbelief at how the name of the country is pronounced. 

Executive director of the Alif Institute Mouna Abdulhamid explains that the Arabic word for Qatar actually only has three letters: qāf, ṭā and rā. These are Romanized to q,t and r respectively.

Unfortunately, none of them have a close English equivalent, making pronunciation extra tricky. Of course, for us Maltese, it’s not that hard given the proximity to the Arabic language that Maltese has.
