Former Nyasa Big Bullets players have teamed up with Musicians Union of Malawi (Mum) in the hunt for K30 million through a charity match set for Kamuzu Stadium in Blantyre on Monday.

The two bodies have organised the match to raise funds for needy retired local players and musicians who are facing economic challenges.

Former Bullets midfielder Isaac Msuku said it is sad that the number of needy ex-players keeps growing.

“We are deeply touched by the rising number of former players who are struggling to make ends meet due to the rising cost of living. We have therefore decided to join forces with our colleagues in the music industry to try and reach out to our friends in need.

“We are therefore calling on all football fans across the country and music lovers to come in large numbers and support this cause. We want them to come and celebrate Mothers’ Day with us while watching a game of football and enjoying some good music,” Msuku said.

Mum President Gloria Manong’a said her team is ready to beat the Bullets ex-players.

“Our players have started training and we will camp ahead of the match. We want to give our fans the best performance ever. This will not just be a mere friendly match as others may think. We want to be competitive and show them that we also play football apart from being artists.

“We have assembled a very strong team led by Anjiru Fumulani of Black Missionaries. We are therefore asking all football lovers to come and not only watch the beautiful game, but dance to our music as well. Performances by artists will start before the match. For all these goodies, we will charge K2,000 per head,” Manong’a said.

Bullets are expected to feature players such as Andrew Chikhosi, Fisher Kondowe, James Chilapondwa, Raheem Ishmael and Afiki Sikelo, among others, while the musicians’ team has Faith Mussa, Anjiru, Piksy and Onesmus.

Recently, the Bullets former players’ team helped fellow ex-stars James Chimera Jr and Joseph Gatros with securing drivers’ licences.
