US Multi-platinum selling music group, Dru Hill have confirmed their performance in Lilongwe on December 12 this year.
The band’s tour is courtesy of Peermont Hotels, the managers of the imposing Umodzi Park.
In a bid to drum more support for the show, Dru Hill has released a video, confirming their show in Malawi.
The 17 seconds video posted on YouTube shows Dru Hill members Mark ‘Sisqó’ Andrews, Larry ‘Jazz’ Anthony, Tamir ‘Nokio’ Ruffin and Tao in a room saying:
“Yeah, we are Dru Hill. December 12, Malawi, we are going to be at Umodzi Park,” breaks it down Tao while Nokio, repeatedly screams “say it one more time.” Laid back Sisqo and Jazz are also seen and heard screaming “Yeah,” before Tao concludes by saying: “That’s where we are going to be, packed.”
Dru Hill was most popular during the late 1990s, with a repertoire that included R’n’B, soul, hip hop soul and gospel music.
Some of the band’s famous hits include We’re Not Making Love No More, These Are The Times, How Deep Is Your Love and I Love You.
Earlier, Umodzi Park sales and marketing manager, Temwa Kanjadza, said the group brings in a better and exciting package.
“We wanted a very competent package and Dru Hill just qualified because those who know Dru Hill will agree with me that the group knows how to dance on stage and they also sing well and that worked well with our intent,” she said.
Kanjadza said local artists to curtain raise for Dru Hill include Skeffa Chimoto and Veejay Ice.
