Reggae group Black Missionaries will tonight entertain delegates during the Insurance Institute of Malawi (IIM) Annual conference which started Thurday and will end tomorrow at Sunbird Nkopola in Mangochi.
Blacks lead vocalist Anjiru Fumulani said on Tuesday that they were happy that they will be performing at the insurance meet.
“We are excited and when we were approached to perform there we did not hesitate as we knew we will be performing to a different audience,” said Anjiru.
He said that performing at the conference will also give them time to market their latest album Kuimba 10.
Chairperson of the organising committee for the conference Chimwemwe Kanyenda said they decided to engage Black Missionaries to among others sample fresh songs from Kuimba 10 which he said is carrying good messages of love and hope.
“The Black Missionaries represent quintessential and urban music genre with obvious appeal as well as extensive outreach across the spectrum of the society.
“The Blacks are the undisputed local reggae kings. Therefore the choice of Blacks is beyond reproach but universally accepted and likeable amongst the conference delegates,” said Kanyenda.
He added that on any day, a free and fair referendum regarding the question of the suitability of Blacks would produce a resounding yes result.
Kanyenda said the Insurance Institute of Malawi annual conference is an occasion for the Insurance Institute to re-dedicate itself to the original mandate that the founding fathers adopted at the inception in 1978.
“And these include promoting professionalism in the insurance industry through education and training and, without prejudice, to maintain a sound, vibrant and stable insurance industry,” he said.
Kanyenda said that each year the annual conference attracts a diverse participants’ profile from the insurance, financial and various business sectors.
He said main objective of the conference is to provide an information sharing and collaborative environment for insurance regulatory authorities, insurance brokers, reinsurers, insurers and other special groups with interest in insurance.
Kanyenda described the conference as an ideal platform from which to forge new business relationships through unrivalled networking opportunities during the course of the conference, both in formal and more relaxed environments.
