Despite a low turnout, Nigerian gospel artist Agatha Moses put up a good performance that left fans begging for more.
The Lilongwe Golf Club proved too big for the show on Good Friday as local gospel musicians came face to face with the Nigerian songstress in an Easter celebration bash.
With a crowd of not more than 300 people, Lloyd Phiri, Princess Chitsulo, Steve Muliya, Kamuzu Barracks, Marvelous Deeds, and The Great Angels Choir were the first to take turns to entertain the fans.
When the Nigerian appeared on stage, reality sunk in some of the revellers as they screamed “she is here” while others were chanting “Agatha, Agatha” in unison.
She went straight into business with her trademark – medley songs. Done in different languages, including English, Yoruba with Igbo dominating in vernacular, the music resonated well with the Malawians. They sang each and every song even when it meant mumbling.
The Happiness Voices Band was right on point with the instruments as well as the vocals. For those joining the fun, they thought the Nigerian flew to Malawi with her full band.
For 45 minutes, Moses sang her lungs out with so much energy defying the odds of a heavily pregnant woman.
While the fans were in the thick of having fun, the Nigerian took a bow leaving so many yearning for more.
She later praised Malawi for hosting her.
“Travelling within Africa is like being home. So, I was home and I am happy to have many people in love with my music. I wouldn’t hesitate to come back given another opportunity,” she said in an interview.
The artist who is much known for her songs I Lift Up Your Name and He Has Done It For Me, was brought to Malawi courtesy of M Cinema in Lilongwe with sponsorship from Living Waters Church Area 49, Ethiopian Airlines, Crossroad Hotel and ABC Kirk.
