Close to six hours of fun at the Club XL in Blantyre were made smoother on Saturday by Malawi Beverages Limited (MBL), who, apart from giving each patron a drink of their choice, slashed prices of their stock.
Maskal faced Black Missionaries in the well-patronised gig that run from around 10 to the wee hours of Sunday morning, as patrons enjoyed sips of Castle, Bohlingers, Miller and other products from MBL.
The music and fun could not be overlooked, as Maskal, whose band is picking up the pieces in getting more organised in live performances, came face to face with the Chileka reggae outfit.
The reception overwhelmed MBL. Their senior sales representative Phillip Kalindawalo said he was elated.
“It has been a great night. The music was fabulous and the response we got from the patrons on our products was overwhelming. People now appreciate that these are not strange beers,” said Kalindawalo.
The show started around 10, with Black Missionaries’ curtain raisers Konzie Masimbe, Moda Fumulani and Yanjanani Chumbu dishing out the music before giving space to Umunthu artist Maskal.
Anthony Makondetsa took over from Maskal, before giving it up to the Black Missionaries, who closed the night with numbers defining their Kuimba journey.
