Black Missionaries Band say their fans should be on the lookout for a DVD that will contain selected songs from the three recent albums.
Band leader Anjiru Fumulani said they will release the DVD after launching Kuimba 11 on June 29.
“Our priority is to launch the Kuimba 11. Then we will shift our focus to the DVD,” he said in an interview.
After releasing Kuimba 10, the band had promised to release a DVD for the album. But music fans have waited in vain to this day.
However, Anjiru said the new DVD will have a few songs from Kuimba 9 and Kuimba 10 with the majority of the songs coming from Kuimba 11.
The Blacks will re-launch the album on July 1 in Lilongwe and July 28 in Mzuzu.
The videos of Special Lover and Gombe la Nyanja come two months after the release of four promotional singles—Mbusa, Umboni, Special Lover and Zofuna Mtima Wanga.
Anjiru said Gombe la Nyanja is a “surprise offering” to music fans.
“We promised to release videos of the four promotional singles. But we decided to surprise the fans with a new song that is part of the album,” he said.
On criticism that the promotional singles mark a departure from their reggae culture, he stated that the band has taken into considerations such observations.
“As artists, we need to take such criticism positively and improve our weaknesses,” he said.
Anjiru, however, said other criticisms are not constructive as people do it out of malice.
Band member Chizondi Fumulani agreed with Anjiru adding that criticism is part of growing up as artists.
“By the end of day we can tell what advice and criticism to take on board,” said Chizondi.
