Chileka reggae outfit Black Missionaries Band returns to Mzuzu tomorrow to support the city’s rising reggae artist Leo-G launch an album
Born Gift Chione, Leo-G will be supported by Squirrels Park Promotions.
Squirrels Park managing director Keliophas Tobias said his firm wants to use the show to unveil Leo-G to the public as one of Mzuzu’s talented reggae artists.
“Leo-G is an up-and-coming artist who has a future if well promoted. That is why we thought of promoting his music through a show to be headlined by the Black Missionaries Band,” he said.
Tobias said the door is open for other up-and-coming artists in the city who need exposure and promotion.
“We are currently working with Fitzgerald Simfukwe and Nenkoman. The other artist we were supporting, Ril B, is now with Lucius Banda because of the same arrangement. So, other musicians out there in need of support are welcome,” he said.
Leo-G said it is a great honour for his album launch show to be graced by reggae giants.
“This will motivate me to work extra hard and help me learn a few things as I prepare for my second album,” he said.
Leo-G released the album, So Nostalgic, early this year. Some of the songs in the 15-track album are already enjoying airplay in various radio and television stations. These are Sindine Ofowoka, What a Long Journey and Never Give Up.
The album has been recorded at Records De Sean-G Studios and at Sound System Records and produced by Gustino Lewis. n
