Musician Patience Namadingo says he plans to hold a mash-up concert of all his productions with various musicians once the coronavirus pandemic ends.
“We will have the mash up concerts which were initially postponed when the coronavirus broke out. We are just waiting for the right time for the safety of our fans,” he said.
Namadingo announced last month that he had ended his mash-up productions after releasing five mash-ups with various artists.
The musician said the decision was arrived at due to challenges to invest in the project.
Namadingo and his manager, Peter Mazunda, released a video breaking the news about the end of the reggae mash-ups project.
“This is the end. We thank you for the support throughout the project,” said Mazunda before handing over to Namadingo for further explanation.
Namadingo explained that the mash-ups, which have so far featured Joe Kellz, Billy Kaunda, the Black Missionaries and Lucius Banda, were supposed to go on and feature more artists.
“We were hoping to feature Ethel Kamwendo-Banda, Mlaka Maliro and Giddes Chalamanda,” he said.
Namadingo said it was going to be an exciting time but that alongside his Namartist management team had come to a painful decision to end the project.
“I would, however, like to encourage other artists in Malawi to take up the challenge and produce their own mash-ups and it will be beautiful to see another artist produce their own mash-up,” said Namadingo.
Before the coronavirus broke out, the musician had planned two mash-up concerts one in Blantyre and another in Lilongwe.
According to the information then, the concert was going to feature all artists he had featured in the project.
The artists include Billy Kaunda, Lucius Banda, Black Missionaries and Joe Kellz.
