Mzuzu–based Moyale Barracks CYF Choir on Sunday marked a milestone in their career as they launched their Adzadalitsa DVD and CD at Mzuzu Tourist Lodge.
However, despite bringing on board one of the country’s renowned gospel singer’s Ethel Kamwendo Banda, the launch failed to attract a huge audience.
But this did not put Moyale Barracks CYF and other choirs including solo artists down as they gave it their all entertaining the sizeable audience.
Kamwendo Banda was the one who closed the chapter on the day dishing out several of her songs.
Some of the artists who spiced up the launch include Matabwa Fellowship, Winnie Mlotha, Uchindami Choir, Griffin Kaliyati, Brave Wathando, Kelvin Sato, Maria Nundwe and Martha Kasambala.
Moyale Barracks CYF Chairperson Ernest Chikhasu said despite the low turnout they were satisfied with the outcome.
Chikhasu said the aim of the DVD and CD is to minister the word of God.
“We also want to show people that sons and daughters of the soldiers are responsible citizens and not trouble makers as others perceive,” he said.
There was also an auction during the concert which saw patron of the choir Gina Mwase buying it at K100,000.
Msongwe Ward Councillor Judith Chiume who was guest of honour also bought it at K50,000.
“I am satisfied with the patronage. People are not familiar with us hence the low patronage,” said Mwase
