Artists light Mary’s Meals Feeding gig


Musicians Soldier Lucius Banda and Zembani Band, Ritaa, Shammah Vocals and Piksy and Lwangwani Movement Band on Saturday starred at Mary’s Meals Feeding concert at Blantyre Sports Club (BSC).

The concert started late due to heavy rains that had fallen in the early hours but despite this setback, musicians made sure they gave the audience a treat.

And in their performances, the artists committed themselves to utilising their talents to support initiatives and bring about change.


Mary’s Meals Country Director Angela Chipeta Khonje said they were satisfied with the concert and that the organisation will continue to hold such events in their efforts to raise close to K100 million.

‘‘We are facing challenges because some of the schools are located in hard-to-reach areas and, with an increase in prices of fuel and goods, it is hard for us to execute the programme well. So, we want to start things on our own before we look up to donors, hence holding this music concert,” Khonje said.

She said this was the first school feeding concert and that plans were in the pipeline for them to be holding it annually.


Khonje, who indicated that the concert was also part of celebrating its 20 years of feeding school children in the country, hailed NBS Bank and First Capital Bank for joining the cause by donating K1,950,000.00 and K1 million respectively.

Shammah Vocals said the concert gave him an opportunity to reach out to a different audience and be part of a concert which was for a good cause.

The ‘Zoe’ star said artists have a role to play in such initiatives.

‘‘If we all can come together and contribute with the little that we have through our arts, we can achieve greatness,’’ he said.

The show went all the way to midnight, with Lucius and Zembani Band closing the curtain.
