Allan Ngumuya gets low patronage


Veteran gospel musician Allan Ngumuya on Sunday celebrated his 30 years anniversary in music at Comesa Hall in Blantyre where he received a low patronage. Ngumuya, who prides in being one of the pioneers of gospel music, started his 30 years celebration in Lilongwe before going to Blantyre.

With several events taking place in the commercial city of Blantyre, it was difficult for Ngumuya to pull a huge audience taking into consideration that there was also a football match involving Bullets FC and Red Lions at Kamuzu Stadium just a few metres from the venue which pulled a huge crowd.

Then there was also another gospel show at Robin’s Park just a few kilometres from Comesa Hall. But despite this, Ngumuya went ahead and put up a great show at the venue where he offered several songs having promised to dish out 30 songs.


Ngumuya might have lost out in terms of generating money since he has indicated that part of the funds realised from all the concerts will go towards assisting needy students at Mzuzu University, but he scored marks in his performance.

Backed by Mingoli Band, the sound was perfect on the day and Ngumuya’s entry during the show impressed the audience. Other artists who performed during the concert included Faith Mussa and Piksy, who features in Ngumuya’s latest album Osankhidwa Ake in the song ‘Achina Davide.’

The musician will perform at Gymkhana Club in Zomba on September 27 before dating Dwangwa Ground on October 4. Some quarters however, felt gospel artists need to refrain from dividing fans by holding shows on the same day and in the same city.
