Chileka-based reggae group Black Missionaries leaves Thursday for South Africa where they are expected to hold seven shows.
The group’s lead vocalist Anjiru Fumulani confirmed Tuesday that they have seven performances in the rainbow nation.
He said their first performance is on Friday hence leaving tomorrow to prepare and that they will fly back on Saturday for the Morgan Heritage Music Unite show to be held at Civo Stadium in Lilongwe.
Asked if this will not put them in a fix, Anjiru said everything was well planned.
“Everything is in order and our fans should not worry. As I said we leave Thursday (tomorrow) for our first show on Friday then back Saturday for the Morgan Heritage show and then we will leave Sunday back to South Africa and will be back on May 17, 2016,” he said.
Anjiru said they were excited to perform once again in South Africa where they have performed before.
He said they will perform with Anthony Makondetsa, who has been missing some of their performances in the country because he was sick.
Anjiru said Makondetsa was now well and that he will make the trip.
Meanwhile Born Afrikan Productions led by the country’s South Africa-based musician and promoter Born Afrikan real name Nelson Shaba posted a picture of some of the members of Morgan Heritage, who jetted into the country yesterday.
The Grammy Award winning group, who are in The Strictly Roots album Africa tour disappointed fans last year in December when they performed using a CD but they have promised that this time they are performing live with a full band.
Born Afrikan said last week that with no floodlights at Civo Stadium, this is an afternoon show and that Morgan Heritage will jump on stage at 4pm.
Born Afrikan, who jetted into the country on Monday, confirmed that some members of Morgan Heritage have arrived.
“Yes it’s true some members of Morgan Heritage have arrived and the others will jet in on Wednesday (today). All is set,” he said.
Other artists performing at the concert are Junior C, Tay Grin and Blasto.
The early bird tickets for the show are selling at K8,000 while at the gates it will cost K12,000.
