Malawi’s reggae music band, the Black Missionaries, says it will start recording its Kuyimba 11 album late January next year.
This follows several postponements to record the album in the year 2017.
Band leader Anjilu Fumulani said all is set to enter the studio in 2018 and record Kuyimba 11.
“We are continuing with our mission of preaching love and oneness in our music,” he said.
Fumulani also said the album will have 11 songs.
“Just like the title of the album, there will be 11 songs in the album,” he added.
Fumulani, however, could not be drawn to disclose who will produce the album, saying they will work with the people they have always worked with.
Meawhile, Fumulani said Ma Blacks are set to end the year on high note with performances in Lilongwe, Nkhata Bay, Mzuzu, Salima, Blantyre, Mchinji and Mangochi.
“We will support Jah Prayzah’s shows both in Blantyre and Lilongwe as well as our own shows in other districts before the year ends,” he said.
Emmanuel Maliro, one of the organisers of the Jah Prayzah show, confirmed roping in Black Missionaries.
“We only have the best as supporting artists for these shows,” he said.
The Black Missionaries band was founded by late Evison Matafale. He released Kuyimba 1 and 2 with the band before his death. The remnants have maintained the band with eight albums released so far.
