Marvelous Deeds in New Year derring-do


Marvelous Deeds – the Lilongwe-based gospel trio of Francis Phiri, Abel Sanena and Weston Chipwaila— on New Year’s Day organised a concert at Robin’s Park in Blantyre, attracting an impressive audience.

The concert also served as a platform where Marvelous Deeds showcased its blue-print for the year 2021, including announcing that an album was in the offing.

As headliners, Marvelous Deeds entertained the audience with hits such as ‘Chimwemwe Changa’, ‘Sanathane Nane’ and ‘Back to Sender’, with patrons singing along.


“We are thankful for the support that people have given us today. We wanted to celebrate the New Year with them. What was also unique was to see people from all walks of life making it to the show,” Phiri said.

The group started off with a new song from their upcoming album, which they performed using a CD, before moving on to a live act backed by a band.

“The new song is an announcement to the people that we are ready with the new album and we will be launching it this year. We are yet to give it the title but all is well. 2020 has been a year of challenges, including due to the covid-19 pandemic, and we are hoping for the best this year,” Sanena said.


The concert saw almost all the artists decry the challenge of Covid-19, which forced them out of the stage.

“I am putting on a face mask because this is what we have become used to because of Covid-19. Again, we have not been having shows because of restrictions. This year, I pray that we should not wear face masks; the situation should normalise,” King James Phiri, who performed last, said.

While some people observed the measure of putting on face masks as part of fighting the Covid-19 pandemic, others completely ignored it.

Other artists that starred at the New Year’s concert include Shammah Vocals, Clara Ngulube, Saxess, Robertson Music, Henry Masamba and Ennoh Mwana wa Igwe.
