Keturah continues to get opportunities as she climbs the ladder of success in her music career, the latest being that she is now the Ambassador of Kakupay.
The singer announced this during a live concert at Jacaranda Cultural Centre (JCC) in Blantyre on Saturday afternoon, when she shared the stage with Malala and Agorosso.
According to available information, Kakupay is the only Malawian online payment platform designed to ease local online payments.
Keturah acknowledged the presence of some of the members from Kakupay who graced the concert.
“I am so thankful to them for selecting me as their ambassador for one year. I just want to thank God for the talent and also thank people out there for all the support,” she said.
Just to show gratitude to Kakupay for the opportunity, the singer, who performed at JCC for the second time, danced with some of the members.
“I am looking forward to more. Several players are coming out to work with me and I would like to thank my manager Pemphero Mphande for initiating all this,” she said.
Keturah, who said that she is working on new songs as well as an album, was the last to perform at the concert.
She, however, did not perform for long with time running out and left the not so huge audience still longing for more.
“It was another good moment for me to share the stage with Malala and Agorosso and I can’t wait to have more shows,” Keturah said.
The singer seems to have gained mileage lately with her performances as she showed more confidence during the show.
Her line-up of songs did not skip ‘Munditengereko’ and ‘Nambewe’.
Malala, who also played master of ceremony, was the first to hit the stage.
Armed with his acoustic guitar, Malala, real name James Kuchilala, said he was happy to be back to the stage after a long break.
“I have been occupied since I am a teacher and I have been moving up and down but I am back and more shows will be organised. Again, there are new songs I am working on,” Malala said.
He offered songs such as ‘Mzanga Black’.
Agorosso, real name Lloyd Phaundi, was second on the line-up but, with the delay in starting the show, he was affected as he did not manage to give out his all.
Agorosso bemoaned the changes during the show and called on organisers to stick to time.
“As an artist you need to concentrate when you are on stage but when you are given lots of changes in between, you get disturbed and that is what happened,” he said.
The concert, organised by Mission Jungo, brought the three artists to help raise funds which will go towards supporting a charity cause in child education.
Augustine Chasukwa, one of the members of Mission Jungo, said they were happy to have finally held their first fundraiser.
“We have achieved what we wanted. Of course we would have loved to get good patronage but we are happy we made the first step,” Chasukwa said.
He said Mission Jungo is a social enterprise made up of players from different professions and that it exists to connect with communities, the government and stakeholders to make transformational changes in the society in line with Malawi Vision 2063 and Sustainable Development Goals.
