Nza Yahweh Celebration attracts huge patronage


By Chris Loka & Henry Chulu:

Great Angels Choir celebrated the new year in style when it hosted what it dubbed N’za Yahweh Celebration at Sheaffer Square Gardens in Lilongwe on Sunday, which pulled a gigantic audience.

The Lilongwe-based group, which is set to release a new album Ufumu Umodzi Siuukilana this year, decided to put up a concert to bring people together and celebrate 2022.


The group’s music director Ephraim Zonda hailed people for turning out in large numbers despite advertising the concert at a short notice.

“We are thankful for the support people have given us. We didn’t know they would surprise us like this and the huge patronage was a perfect set for a new year celebration,” Zonda said.

Zonda said the show was also aimed at thanking God for making things possible in 2021 despite being a challenging year due to Covid.


“It was a year full of challenges but God pulled us through. We lost friends, relatives and fellow artists in 2021 and, so, being alive is worthy celebrating,” he said

Being the group’s first concert of 2022, Great Angels Choir, which put up a great performance, decided to bring on board a rich line-up of artists and it included award-winning R&B musician Kell Kay and Ennoh Mwana wa Igwe.

The two acts lit the concert when they offered electric performances.

This was a rare outing for Kell Kay, especially starring at a stage dominated by gospel musicians, but he pulled the strings and won the hearts of many.

His musical menu included his two 2021 releases ‘Mukanabwera’ and ‘Basi’, in which he featured Leslie and Saint, respectively, but the two were not present.

“Being a new year, I just had to perform to my best and, so, this performance was a new year gift to the audience. It was nice interacting with my fans and I enjoyed every moment,” Kell Kay, famed for love tunes, said.

Kell Kay further said 2022 looks promising and that he was determined to offer more.

As for Ennoh Mwana wa Igwe, he had his share during the concert, dropping songs such as ‘Game Changer’ and ‘Ndigubila’.

He thanked organisers for giving him a platform to perform and also open the new year on a high note.

“In everything, the beginning matters. Looking at how we have started this year, I believe we have an exciting year ahead,” he said.

Other artists who spiced up the celebration included King David, Kondwani Chirwa, Favoured Martha, Peter Uyu Mlangeni, Marvelous Deeds, Henry Masamba and Kamuzu Barracks Gospel Singers.

Susan Masasa, who patronised the concert, said she enjoyed every moment.

“For me, this was time well spent and a perfect moment to start the new year. The organisation of the concert was good and the artists gave us their all and the sound was faultless. We hope to have more of such concerts this year,” Masasa said.
