Great Angels produces 20,000 DVD copies for BT launch


In a bid to reach out to more people with their music, Lilongwe-based Great Angels Choir has revealed that they have produced 20,000 DVD copies of their Mwasankha Ine album to be sold at BAT ground in Blantyre on Sunday.

The group’s Music Director Ephraim Zonda said yesterday that the 20,000 copies have only been produced specifically for the BAT launch and that they are currently working on more to satisfy their fans countrywide.

“This is one way of fighting piracy, sometimes people resort to pirating our copies because they do not have access to the copies. So we are starting with Blantyre where we have produced 20,000 copies,” said Zonda.


The Great Angels Choir popularly known as The Peoples Choir is on a countrywide tour of their Mwasankha Ine DVD.

Their outing starts at BAT ground on Sunday before dating Sheaffer Square Gardens in Lilongwe on December 25, Mlambe Motel in Balaka on December 27 and Mzuzu Boma Park on January 1.

The group was supposed to launch the DVD last month but they shifted it to December following their performance at the Sunbird Sand Music Festival in Salima.


Zonda said during the launch that they will also for the first time perform close to 20 songs.

“There are three bands which will be backing artists during the launch and these are Rolling Sound from Lilongwe, Malimba Band and Armageddon Band,” he said.

He said they have worked very hard to produce the best in Mwasankha Ine DVD revealing that they have invested more money in this DVD compared to their previous works.

The launch in Blantyre will see the group sharing the stage with Billy Kaunda, who will be returning to the stage after a long time.

The former minister and Member of Parliament has been out of the stage for years and Zonda said this is the time for people to see him live once again.

Other artists set to perform in Blantyre include Violet Tengani Dumba, Grace Chinga, Mlaka Maliro, Evans Meleka, Peter Mlangeni, Marvellous Deeds, Limbani Simenti, Steve Wazisomo Muliya, Mau K and King James Phiri.

Kaunda will also perform in Lilongwe.

In Mzuzu, the artists who will be performing include Limbani, Simenti, Donnex Muva, Muliya, Dumba, Martha Nthakomwa, Martha Kasambara and Kelvin Sato.

Zonda said they decided to hold the launch at BAT because they wanted to bring out something different.

“We wanted to go at an open place to avoid other challenges as at Robin’s Park some failed to go in while others fainted,” he said.

Zonda described the launch in Blantyre as a family day where they will also have children’s playing area.

“We will open the gates at 6am and the show will start at 11am. We have also hired a state of the art stage and equipment from Entertainers Promotions, all because we wanted the best on the day,” he said.
