Grace Chinga’s son clarifies dates on ‘Esther’ album launch
Late Grace Chinga’s son Steve Spesho, who is a producer, on Sunday took time out to clarify the dates for the launch of his mother’s album Esther.
Dates were released recently through a poster, which indicated that the launch will first be at Comesa Hall in Blantyre on September 11 and then Sheaffer Hall in Lilongwe on September 18 before Boma Park in Mzuzu on September 25.
“We had some problems on the dates especially in Mzuzu and Lilongwe; we did not verify that there were some shows so we have just swapped the dates for Lilongwe and Mzuzu but everything is ok and we are good to go,” he said.
“The preparations are at an advanced stage and Miracle is actually ready. We won’t say much now but people should patronise the launch in the three cities. We know some people have already listened to the songs but let them come and appreciate live performances,” he said.
The artist and producer said for those who loved their mother, they will see the best in Miracle, who showed her potential when she performed during her mother’s funeral service at Robin’s Park in Blantyre.
Chinga died in March and was buried at HHI Cemetery in Blantyre.
There have been stories running around recently where Miracle and her team was accused of pocketing money and failing to make it to a show in Mzuzu.
But Spesho preferred not to say anything on the issue.
“Let me not say anything on that. All I can say is that there are some organisers who are putting Miracle on the posters without proper agreement. All I can say is that people just need to be careful because Miracle will perform for the first time during mum’s launch and for the other shows, they should verify with us whether we will be available or check through our pages,” he said.
Spesho on Sunday performed at Dan Lu’s Sweet Banana Sunday.
“I am a producer and I work with different artists. I am also an artist so I am working on my DVD and album. But at the moment, I am first working on launching mum’s album,” he said.
