Legends meet at Sunbird Independence Day celebrations


As Malawi moves towards celebrating its 53rd birthday as an independent nation, Sunbird Hotels & Resorts, has prepared activities to celebrate with its patrons on Independence Day and the consequent weekend.

The activities will be held at Sunbird’s two premier lakeside resorts, Sunbird Nkopola Lodge in Mangochi and Sunbird Livingstonia Beach in Salima. The fun kicks off on Thursday July 6, at Sunbird Nkopola Lodge’s Leisure center with a two day event dubbed ‘Independence with the Legends’.

Sunbird sales executive, Atupele Kachepa, said the event will combine food, fun and live music on the golden beach of Lake Malawi.


“All are invited to come and enjoy a social beach soccer tournament, snacks and drinks at the leisure center’s bar as well as live musical performances from some of Malawi’s local music legends including Sir Paul Banda, Joseph Nkasa, Thomas Chibade and more,” he said.

The event will also host celebrated comedians, Mr. Jokes and Aunt Getu.

“Targeted to be a fun two day spree of enjoyable family fun, the “Independence with the Legends” event will cost MK3, 000.00 for advance tickets and MK5, 000.00 at the door, per person,” Kachepa said.


Malawi’s most popular live band the Black Missionaries commonly referred to as ‘Ma Blacks’ will be throwing it down at the Livingstonia Beach campsite alongside Anthony Makondetsa.

The Independence Celebration Concert will be held on the day after Independence, Friday July 7.
