Thoko Suya blesses souls on Good Friday

GOOD FRIDAY—Suya sings her heart out

On a Good Friday, a day when Christians across the world commemorate the crucifixion of Jesus Christ and his death at Calvary, gospel singer Thoko Suya put up a scintillating performance treating people to a non-stop two-hour Hymns Night at Times Entertainment Studios in Blantyre.

Suya partnered Times Group, through Times Television, to treat people to a special night of hymns.

About 80 people were earmarked to be part of the Hymns Night at Times Entertainment Studios but the number went up and organisers had to create space to accommodate the other people.


With the others attending physically, Times Group gave an opportunity to people out there to watch the performance through Times Television and Times 360 on Facebook.

Hosted b y Brian Banda, Suya took the audience on an exciting journey of hymns and, coupled with perfect sound, she brought heaven to Times Entertainment Studios as people sang along to almost all the hymns on her itinerary.

“Thank you for making that choice to be part of this Hymns Night to praise God, feel free to worship him, there is so much power in these hymns and this is why I love them,” she said in between her performance.


Before the host introduced the headliner in Suya, Times Television Programmes Manager Wonder Msiska announced that the Hymns Night marked the launch of such performances at Times Entertainment Studios.

“When we sat down with Pastor Blessings Suya and sold him this idea, we all agreed that we need these moments and, being Good Friday and Easter period, we thought it was something good to do and worship God together with the rest of the world,” Msiska said.

He said Times Television will be doing such performances once every month.

“It won’t be Hymns Night, it might be worship night or praise night but this is what we will be doing once every month. This venue is open to artists to launch their albums and it is all about promoting each other. Times Group has a big platform,” Msiska said.

Beautifully dressed in a gold evening dress, Suya moved souls with a package of the hymns, a good number of them were in Chichewa, with a few in Tumbuka, but most of them were familiar to the audience.

The list of the songs carefully selected for Good Friday and Easter period included ‘Yesu Muyimilire’, ‘Mwana Wambelere’, ‘Yesu Mwamphanji Yane’, ‘Msinje Wochiza’, ‘Yehova Mbusa’, ‘Potuluka Mmudzimo’, ‘Ndikonda Mlungu’, ‘Thathwe’, ‘Pokhala Mtendere’, ‘Pa Calvary’, ‘Azawoneka’, ‘Pa Mthunzi ndi Nsipu’ and ‘Sindidziwa Zamawa’.

She also dropped her own compositions including ‘Mmalo Mwanga’, and ‘Ndimamukonda’ which closed the curtain for the night.

And when the host announced that the session was going to an end, people still wanted more with some calling for an all-night performance until the following day but it was not to be.

One of the people who graced the show, Ella Phiri, said she was blown away with Suya’s performance.

“I have always attended her Hymns Nights; they are amazing and I got blessed although it was a short session,” Phiri said.
