The Great Angels, Ndirande Anglican Voices meet in BT show


Top gospel groups in the country, The Great Angels Choir and Ndirande Anglican Voices will on Sunday share the stage at Chrichi Multipurpose Garden in Chitawira, Blantyre.

The two groups alongside another gospel star King James Phiri will be on song in a show themed One Stage – Two Choirs and One Artist.

Most of the gospel concerts which have been taking place recently have attracted bigger line-ups that have ended up with artists only offering less than two songs each.


The trend has left people disappointed and many of the artists have compromised on their acts.

“As Chrichi Multipurpose Gardens we want to change how shows are done. We want people to be satisfied with the performances.

We want to have family entertainment where artists perform to their best,” said Wales Chakukuma, proprietor of the venue.


He said this time around people will see the best of The Great Angels Choir, Ndirande Anglican Voices and King James Phiri.

“The stage is for three artists. So they will all have time to perform for a long time and so it is also a challenge to them to come out with the best. We are looking at performances where people not only appreciate the performances but also get to know these artists better,” Chakukuma said.

This is not the first time for the venue to host such a concert as they have also done so in the past bringing on stage Faith Mussa and Patience Namadingo.

“We just hope people will come in large numbers to be a part of this concert. It’s a unique concert and rare on that matter because we have two top gospel groups on one stage and performing for a long time,” he said.

The Great Angels Choir’s music director Ephraim Zonda said yesterday that they were excited to share the stage with Ndirande Anglican Voices and King James Phiri.

“We are happy and we know it’s a challenge for us but we have rehearsed and we can’t wait to get on stage. The venue itself Chrichi has proved to be convenient when it comes to family entertainment and this platform will also give us a chance to drop songs from all our albums,” Zonda said.

He said the performance at Chrichi Gardens will also test them as they are preparing for another big event coming up in September where they are launching a website and will be sharing the stage with veteran South African gospel musician Sipho Makhabane.

“This will be a platform to give people a taste of what we will do during the launch of our website in Lilongwe. It will also be a time to minister the word of God,” Zonda said.

Nicknamed The Peoples Choir, the group has three albums to their credit namely Mutifungatire, Ndiyende Bwanji and Mwasankha Ine.

Ndirande Anglican Voices’ lead singer Dennis Kalimbe said they were ready for the show on Sunday.

“We are ready to praise and worship with people. We have performed with The Great Angels on many occasions but this one is special and people should expect more surprises,” Kalimbe said.

He added:

“We are prepared to give people inspirational songs for close to two hours and we are hopeful that through the Holy Spirit the songs will heal the sick and the heartbroken.”

King James Phiri also said he is ready for the outing to minister the word of God through music.
