Black Missionaries, popularly known as Blacks, will release their long awaited Kuimba 12 album end this month.
The group’s lead vocalist Anjiru Fumulani Thursday described November as a special month which will see them launching Kuimba 12 and also celebrating the life of the group’s founder Evison Matafale and other fallen artists such as Gift and Moda Fumulani.
The journey to these important activities start with Kuimba 12 pre-launch concert at Motel Paradise in Blantyre tonight.
“We are ready for the showdown and this is just a warm-up as we look forward to Kuimba 12 launch. We just want to thank Entertainers Promotions for organising everything,” Anjiru said.
Blacks will launch Kuimba 12 on November 26 at Robin’s Park in Blantyre before invading Lilongwe the following day and then winding up the weekend with the annual memorial show at Chileka on November 28.
“The album is ready. The long break we had due to Covid gave us enough time to finalise everything and we are happy with the overwhelming response from people to the four promotional songs we dropped,” he said.
The group released four audios and two videos. Some of the songs include ‘Ndikanapanda’ and ‘Praise’.
Entertainers Promotions Director Tonderai Banda said the show was long overdue having been postponed several times due to Covid.
“We are giving people in Blantyre a perfect warm-up to the launch of Kuimba 12 album. We just want to call upon them to come in large numbers because it will be fun,” Tonderai said.
The show comes barely a week after Entertainers Promotions successfully held the Sound and Light Shandie Concert at Blantyre Sports Club, which was headlined by Nigerian musician Fireboy.
Apart from Blacks, Anthony Makondetsa, Khozie Masimbe, Moda Fumulani and Yanjanani Chumbu, other acts spicing up the show include Skeffa Chimoto and Real Sounds Band, Mtumiki Khuza Rampi, Gentile Afro Band and Rise.
