Reggae outfit The Black Missionaries will be performing in Johannesburg, South Africa from April 26 to 28 to launch Kuimba 9 album on the international scene.
“Eight people including Anthony Makondetsa, will make it for the trip and we are scheduled to leave Tuesday next week by road. This is the beginning of promoting our latest album internationally,” said Black Missionaries manager Ras Ray Harawa.
According to Harawa, the three shows lined up in Johannesburg are meant to entertain their South African fans.
After the South African launch, Ma Blacks have hinted at going to Zambia soon.
M Promotions, the firm that has invited Black Missionaries to perform in Johannesburg, says the idea of hosting the reggae band was a result of several requests from Malawians based in South Africa.
“People wanted to have Ma Blacks here. We had to give them what they want. For the band, they will take advantage of the performances to launch their album; the same with Makondetsa,” said Mangaliso Nkosi of M Promotions.
The band opens their tour on Friday, 26 April at Safari Hotel in Hillbrow. On Saturday, they will perform at Equator before wrapping up on Sunday afternoon at Tijuka in Bruma.
