CHRISTMAS PACKAGE— Sechaba on stage

Great Angels Choir held their last show for 2018 at Bingu International Convention Centre (BICC) in Lilongwe on Christmas Day where they pulled a huge audience.

Dubbed Christmas Concert, the show also featured South African artist Sechaba with Gwamba and Thocco Katimba, who were also on the menu, missing out.

Great Angels, nicknamed The Peoples Choir, organised the show to celebrate with the fans their 2018 successes which, among others, saw them launching a website and performing in South Africa.

“This was the last show for 2018 and then we will perform at another show, but it will be next year. We are thankful to people for the support they continue to give to us. We are where we are because of the people and we would like to thank God for the talent,” the group’s music director, Ephraim Zonda, said Wednesday.

He added that people should look forward to their new album Ufumu Umodzi Siwuwukilana to be released next year.

This will be the group’s fifth album after the release of Mwasankha Ine, Gwireni Dzanja, Ndiyende Bwanji and Mundifungatire.

“We have made progress on the new album and if everything goes according to plans, then we should be able to launch it in April. We have already started discussions with some top artist in South Africa, who we want to come and grace the launch,” Zonda said.

Speculations were rife Wednesday that Sechaba jumped on stage whilst drunk, disappointing some fans.

Zonda said Sechaba performed although they had disagreements on his coming on stage early.

“The initial programme was that he would jump on stage at 7pm but due to the failure by other artists Gwamba and Thocco Katimba, we finished our performance earlier, so we had to discuss with him to come in earlier, which was a problem for him. Therefore, there were delays but, eventually, everything was sorted out,” Zonda said.

He could not comment on allegations that Sechaba was drunk when he got on stage.

On the absence of Gwamba and Katimba, Zonda said the two are in South Africa and that they confirmed their availability.

Ras Peter Kansengwa, who attended the concert, said he was impressed with Great Angel’s performance.
