South African gospel musician Benjamin Dube and Faith Mussa on Friday put up thrilling performances that excited the audience during a worship concert at Bingu International Conventional Centre (BICC) in Lilongwe.
Dube promised ahead of the concert that he would give out the best and not compromise on his set and he did just that.
From his 16 albums, Dube performed 15 songs which included ‘Bow Down and Worship Him’ ‘I Feel Like Going On’, ‘I Will Rise Again’ and ‘Ketshepile Wena’.
It was the first time for Dube to perform at BICC but not the first time to perform in the country. But the last time he performed in the country was long time ago.
Dube closed the concert on the night with Mussa warming up the stage.
He said his trip to Malawi was a success.
“I am happy with the support I have received. The atmosphere during the show was electrifying and this has been a benchmark that we can use for greater things in Malawi,” the musician said.
Dube said he was given all the love on the night.
“I was thrilled and shocked that people know my songs even those in Zulu,” Dube said.
The musician, who is a well-travelled preacher and has shared the stage with, among other artists, Kirk Franklin performed for close to three hours and bowed out at midnight with the audience satisfied.
Mussa, who announced last week that he would launch his Mdidi album in September, offered the best of his music.
His performance at BICC also came barely a week after he impressed with his Unplugged show at Jacaranda Cultural Centre in Blantyre.
“I am happy with the support I have got tonight. Again I am also happy to share the stage with Benjamin Dube, who is a top artist,” Mussa said.
He also said he enjoyed the night to the fullest because on the same night he also won three awards at the 2018 Nyasa Music Awards held at Comesa Hall in Blantyre.
The show was organised by National Friends of Church of Central African Presbyterian Students Organisation (FOCCAPSO).
