Black Missionaries has, for now, put on hold its three singles of Kuimba 12 album which they announced they would release last month.
The reggae group’s lead vocalist and leader Anjiru Fumulani, said Thursday they could not do so due to the situation on the ground.
“We will release the singles later when everything gets back to normal. We had hoped to release [the sinle] in July but the situation now is that the focus is on Covid-19 pandemic and we have also put our attention to it,” Fumulani said.
He said the three singles were ready and that once the situation normalises, they will release the songs.
“We will release the songs for sure to give people a taste before coming out with an album. If we release the songs now, there will be no attention from the people because everyone is talking about the pandemic at the moment,” he said.
He maintained that the plan remains the same that they would release Kuimba 12 this year.
“The plan for the anniversary is also intact although we are not sure when things will normalise. We pray that God should take away this pandemic so that our lives can go back to normal. A lot of things have been affected and as artists we have not been spared,” Anjiru said.
Blacks resumed shows but following a rise in coronavirus cases, the group decided to go on break again.
Fumulani however, said they were planning to connect with their fans during this time and that they were making a plan.
