Impakt Events have finally announced that Jamaican reggae group featuring Kenyatta Hill will perform in Blantyre and Lilongwe.
Impakt Events director, Lucius Banda, said on his Facebook page over the weekend that it was now official that Culture featuring Kenyatta Hill would perform on June 2 at Mibawa Multipurpose Hall in Blantyre and Civo Stadium in Lilongwe on June 3.
“Finally its official Culture featuring Kenyatta Hill will start with Blantyre on the 2nd June at Mibawa. Then Civo Stadium on the 3rd,” Lucius said.
He also asked people to write down their favourite songs for Culture to consider them on the list.
The poster of the two concerts indicates that the Blantyre concert will start at 8pm until late while the Lilongwe show will start at noon until late.
The entry fee for the concerts is K8,000 for early bird tickets, K10,000 on the door and K15,000 for VIP at Mibawa.
The poster also shows that the local acts set to perform include Black Missionaries, Zembani Band, Anthony Makondetsa, Sam Smack, Nepman, Lambanie Dube, Skeffa Chimoto and Soul Raiders.
Lucius said on Saturday that all was set for the two concerts and that they were working hard to give people the best.
“Everything is in place and people should look forward to these two concerts. We just want to call upon the corporate world to support us because we cannot do it alone,” he said.
Lucius said Culture and Kenyatta Hill would likely jet into the country on May 31 in Blantyre ahead of the shows.
Culture was formed in 1976 as the vocal trio of Joseph Hill (formerly a percussionist in Studio One house band the Soul Defenders), his cousin Albert Ralph Walker, and Roy Kenneth Dayes, initially using the name The African Disciples.
They later changed to Culture.
Hailing from Kingston, Jamaica, Kenyatta Jr Culture Hill’s career as a singer began the day his father’s ended.
Joseph Hill, singer and songwriter of the legendary Jamaican vocal trio Culture, passed away in 2006 while on tour in Europe.
Left without a lead singer, Kenyatta—then the band’s sound engineer—stepped from behind the mixing board to the stage before going on a tour.
Kenyatta performed with his father’s band at the Western Consciousness show in 2007, which was dedicated to Joseph Hill, and became the lead singer of Culture; Walker and Nelson continue to provide backing vocals.
According to available information, in 2011, Live On was released, featuring Kenyatta’s performances of his father’s songs, including ‘Two Sevens Clash’ and ‘International Herb’.
