Lucius Banda hails journalists


Soldier Lucius Banda on Friday began his performance at Sunbird Livingstonia in Salima by commending journalists for the important role they play in promoting the creative industry.

Lucius, famed for hits such as ‘Mabala’ and ‘Down Babylon’, climaxed activities for the World Sports Journalism Day celebrations organised in the country by Sports Writers Association of Malawi (Swam.

The World Sports Journalism Day falls on July 2 every year.


“Journalists help a lot in promoting artists. They can make or destroy artists and that is why we need to respect them because there can never be successful artists without journalists,” said the legendary musician.

He added:

“I first appeared in the newspaper in 1986 when I was 16 years and since then journalists have been part of my career.”


After his speech, the musician then went straight to business on a chilly night performing for close to three hours.

He kept the audience dominated by journalists on the dance floor throughout dishing out songs from his several albums.

At some point, Lucius also performed ‘Ndichiritseni’ which was done by late Paul Chaphuka.

The musician also took time out to lash out at those who accuse him of being ‘satanic’, saying they are in the dark stressing that his successes are a product of hard work.

“From here, I will be proceeding to Mzimba where I will perform in the afternoon [Saturday] and during the night, I will have a show in Kasungu before going for another performance in Lilongwe on Sunday,” he said.

Lucius said when he buys sausage and enjoy it, with his family on Monday, someone calls him satanic.

He then went on to perform ‘Sagona’.

The musician also revealed that he will be releasing his next album in two weeks, time. He also said there would be no launch for the album.
