Malawi’s celebrated reggae power house the Black Missionaries Band are expected to return on stage on March 26, 2021 where they will hold a live show at Zinziri in Chileka Blantyre after three months break.
In an interview with Malawi News Agency (MANA) on Wednesday, the Band Manager Ras Ray Harawa confirmed the development.
“We have organized a live show at Zinziri in Blantyre, after a long break due to public gathering restrictions because of Covid-19. The band is ready to bounce back and give out the best performance as they usually do,” he said.
Dubbed ‘Stree Free Concert,’ Harawa said they decided to resume live performances after noting that public gathering restriction have silently been suspended as politicians from both the ruling and opposition parties are conducting public rallies in readiness of the forth coming by-elections.
“We have noticed that hundreds of people are able to attend to political rallies, a lot of people more than those who patronize our shows, so we thought it wise that we return on stage,” said Harawa adding that he sees no reason why musicians should be barred perfom live as it stands now.
He added, ‘’People should expect fire works from the Black Missionaries Band because we are going to give out the best ever quality of music and sound that people used to enjoy.”
Harawa further said music lovers should prepare to dance from kuyimba 1 up to kuyimba 11 “because we know how much they have missed us and the the band has miss them as well.”
‘’As Black Missionaries (Ma Blacks) we want to assure fans that the band will not disappoint them, there will be maximum entertainment,’’ said Harawa
He said all Covid-19 measures will be followed.
Also to perfom at the show are Anthony Makondetsa, Khozi Masimbe, Yanjani Chumbu, Moda Fumulani and many others.
