Christafari and Avion Blackman jets in January 7


By Sam Banda Jnr:

Christafari and Avion Blackman will jet into the country on January 7 ahead of their performance— dubbed No Left Behind— at Sunbird Capital Marquee on January 10.

Christafarid and Avion Blackman are set to share the stage with local acts such as Faith Mussa, Sangwani Munthali, Suffix and Sam Mjura.


Christafari is a Christian reggae band formed in 1989.

According to our research, the group centred on the personality of ordained religious minister Mark Mohr (born October 23, 1971), an American, born-again Christian who until the age of 17, was a Rastafarian.

Each of Christafari’s albums— notably Reggae Christmas, Greatest Hits Vol. 1, Greatest Hits Vol. 2 and Anthems— have hit the number one position on the Billboard Reggae Charts.


The band’s 2017 album Hearts of Fire entered the Billboard Reggae Albums chart number one, their third number one album on the chart.

On April 13 2018, Christafari released the studio album Original Love (Lion of Zion Entertainment) which debuted at number one on the Billboard Reggae Albums Chart.

This is the group’s seventh consecutive album to debut at number one.

Spokesperson of the organising team, Thokozani Chimbali, said Thursday all was set for the concert.

“They are in on January 7 and will leave on January 11 enroute to Tanzania. The trip is dubbed None Left Behind and we are inviting every sphere of life to come to the show. This is a family show,” Chimbali said.

He also said that 13 members are coming on the tour and that people should brace for a strictly live performance and not CDs.

Christafari and Avion Blackman will be performing in the country courtesy of International Christian Assembly in conjunction with All Nations Music Inc.

“When we saw that they were visiting Kenya and Tanzania, we contacted them to know if they could also visit Malawi. It should be noted that the organising committee’s team leader, Sai Chalamanda, has been in contact with the group for almost a year,” Chimbali said.

The tickets for the concert are selling at K10,000 advance and K12,500 at the door.

The group is also set to hold a free show at Maula Prison in Lilongwe.
