Reggie group Black Missionaries is set to return to the stage this month with a show at Mibawa Hall in Blantyre.
The group’s lead vocalist Anjiru Fumulani said Thursday the show would be held under strict Covid precautionary measures.
“We are yet to confirm the date for the show but it will be this month. We know the situation has not yet normalised and this is why we will be holding it with a few people,” Anjiru said.
He said the show was all about giving people reggae vibes which they have missed for some time and also use it as a platform to bring awareness to the people about the pandemic.
“Covid cases have gone down now but we still need to play it safe. We need to continue following the precautionary measures. We want to use this show to bring smiles during this time and also remove stress. It has been hard but all will be well,” he said.
Asked what they have been up to during this break without shows due to the pandemic, Anjiru said they have been in the studio.
“We are spending time in the studio, polishing up songs and doing rehearsals so that, when things open up, we should be able to give people good performances,” Anjiru said.
Having promised people that they would be releasing singles, Anjiru admitted that they have delayed but was quick to say that they want people to listen to good songs.
“We would have released them last year but Covid affected us and it has been the same situation up to now. But we have worked hard on polishing them and I assure people that this month we are releasing the singles,” he said.
He also said that if things go according to plan, they should be releasing Kuimba 12 later this year.
“There might be changes with the situation we have now especially on the album but our target is to have it this year. If we fail then next year but for the singles I can assure you that we will have them this month,” Anjiru said.
