Black Missionaries, Wailing Brothers share stage in Mzuzu

Reggae groups Black Missionaries and Wailing Brothers shared the stage for the first time at Squirrels Park in Mzuzu on Sunday.

The show was organised by Squirrels Park Entertainment, a joint that is gaining ground in the heart of Mzuzu.

Musician Fitzgerald Simfukwe also performed during the show which went all the way to the early hours of Monday.

“I just want to thank the organisers for putting up this show. The show was simply organised to bring these two bands together and show people that they are still one despite wailing on different boats,” Simfukwe said.

He said the show was massive and that people were treated to good reggae vibes from the two bands.

“People came up in large numbers and the response was very good. We hope to see more of these shows,” said the creator of Kadundulu albums.

Wailing Brothers was revived by the Chokani brothers of Paul and Takudziwani, who were once part of Black Missionaries.

The group was started by their late brother Elias Chokani.

Takudziwani said recently that the group was revived to continue the journey that their brother started and that it was there to give a platform to young and upcoming artists.

The current lead vocalist for the group is Chikumbutso Simbi.

Before the Mzuzu outing, Takudziwani and Moda Fumulani took time out to perform with Black Missionaries during a show at Premier Lodge in Blantyre.

Blacks lead vocalist Anjiru Fumulani said yesterday that their sharing the stage with Wailing Brothers just shows that they were members of one family.

“We are not in bad blood as some quarters have been saying. We are brothers and members of one family and it was nice to share the stage and we really enjoyed it,” Anjiru said.

He said they were looking forward to more performances together especially when they all have free weekends.
