TNM will this afternoon set the hype for the 2016 Super League season with a night-long live music bash at the BAT Ground in Blantyre.
The mobile network operator’s public relations and sponsorship manager Limbani Nsapato yesterday said the bash will see Lucius Banda and his Zembani Band performing alongside the Black Missionaries Band, Anthony Makondetsa and Dan Lu from 5pm.
He said: “We want to celebrate the Super League kick-off in style. Therefore, people should come in their large numbers to witness an exciting event that will be full of colour and glamour. Individuals will only be required to buy K500 worth of TNM airtime to watch the show.
“We decided to organise the music show owing to the century-old linkage between football and music. Music has always played a pivotal role in making sure soccer fans merrily cheer their teams across the globe.”
Black Missionaries band leader Anjiru Fumulani, Banda, Makondetsa and Dan Lu yesterday confirmed their presence at the show where they have promised fireworks.
“As Black Missionaries, we have been working with TNM for a long time and I can confirm our presence this Friday. We love football so much and I guarantee that we will offer an unadulterated performance throughout the night,” he said.
Nsapato said, at the show, TNM will also conduct some interactive competitions for the patrons.
The Super League re-launches tomorrow at Kamuzu Stadium under the theme: It’s Great to Play, Cheer and Win.
According to Nsapato, an encounter between defending champions Nyasa Big Bullets and Moyale Barracks is set to take the centre stage at the launch, where a trophy parade and an Under-15 match between St Andrew’s and Ndirande Stars will also be on the menu. n
