Black Missionaries lead vocalist Anjiru Fumulani hailed East End as one of the finest venues in Blantyre. Fumulani made these remarks at East End Entertainment Centre in Chigumula where they performed in their first show of 2014.
“This is a good venue, it is spacious with more parking space, but management of this place just need to do some touch ups to refine the place,” said Anjiru.
He said they will look at the possibility of holding a day time show at the venue.
“People from this area surely missed us, it has been 10 years since we last performed at this venue,” said the Blacks leader.
Proprietor of East End Armstrong Kamphoni told The Nation that they are working on finishing the brick fence so that the place has adequate security.
“We will have more of these shows, people should be prepared,” said Kamphoni.
By 8pm, which was the time the show was supposed to kick-start, the joint looked empty and without a promise for more patrons. But the Black Missionaries charm manifested itself as by the time the reggae band got on stage, the place was filled and the dance floor came to life.
Acts from Moda Fumulani, Toza Matafale and Athony Makondetsa won the hearts of the patrons as they danced tirelessly as if they had been hypnotised.
But Anjiru showed the patrons at the venue that he missed them as much as they did as he performed their songs from their Kuimba albums for more than three hours non-stop.
