The auction came soon after Wendy had performed a few songs, before coming back and finishing her set on a higher note dishing out ‘Chisomo’, a collabo with Nigerian gospel musician Jimmy D Psalmist and Lulu.

With Lulu already on stage as part of Wendy’s band that also included members such as JJ Munthali, Wendy had to invite Jimmy D Psalmist, who sitting in the audience to join her on stage to perform ‘Chisomo’.

She opened her act with ‘Ambuye Ndionetseni’ before moving on with other songs, some of which are not her original tracks but were written by, among others, Soldier Lucius Banda.

“It can only be God, finally here I am launching my debut gospel album. God has done wonders in my life and I am in a better place. I just want to say thank you to you all for coming out to support me.

Thank you to Prophet Shepherd Bushiri and Prophetess Mary Bushiri for all the support,” Wendy said.

Blantyre-based musician Thocco Katimba, who was not on the line-up, was the first to hit the stage, warming up for Great Angels Choir, which offered a number of songs from their albums before leaving the stage for Patience Namadingo.

Onesimus, who has not performed in the country for some time, was next; he opened his act with two slow numbers, with Chisomo Ngondo helping him out on the piano before playing the rest of the other songs using a DJ.

“They say east or west home is best. I am happy to be home to support my sister Wendy,” Onesimus said.

His numbers did not skip ‘Messenger’ and ‘Miracle Money’.
