Billy Kaunda, Alleluya Band share stage


By Sam Banda Jnr:

Musician Billy Kaunda once again proved his music mettle on Saturday when he shared the stage with Alleluya Band led by its leader Paul Subiri at Twenty Four Seven Club in Blantyre.

It was a strong line-up on the night which also saw reggae ambassador Charles Sinetre performing soon after the audience had enjoyed Coss Chiwalo’s set.


Having not been active with live acts due to politics, Kaunda who is also contesting as a Member of Parliament in May 21 elections, performed at the show backed by Baptist Band from his church.

The musician, who has been performing with Armageddon Band in the past, attracted interest from the audience at the venue on a chilly night.

He jumped on stage after midnight continuing from where Sinetre, who has also been out of the stage for some time, had offered his vibes which included ‘Chidiso Mtolomo’, ‘Saulo’, and ‘Amadikira’.


The last time Sinetre performed with Alleluya Band was last year in Blantyre during a show organised by Blantyre City Council.

“I am excited to perform alongside Billy Kaunda, Alleluya Band and my brothers Coss Chiwalo and Paul Subili. I am still active,” Sinetre said.

There was a special moment during his performance when two of the female members, who have in the past restricted themselves to dancing, played the bass guitar and keyboard.

Sinetre said Alleluya Band is doing well at the moment empowering its female members,to play instruments.

Kaunda backed by his long-time friend Captain Kelly, offered a non-stop show dishing out over 15 songs that reminded the audience of his past exploits.

“I would like to thank Alleluya Band for giving me a chance to perform with them,” he said.

He performed for close to two hours before leaving the stage for Subiri.

Subiri offered his songs before announcing to the audience that Alleluya Band would be leaving for Italy in June for their annual fundraising shows.
