Big Bullets FC will this afternoon host a first pre-season fund-raising event dubbed ‘Bullets for Peace’ Easter show at their club house in Mandala, Blantyre.
According to the club’s chairperson Malinda Chinyama, the show is aimed at settling the dust at the club following weeks of internal squabbles over the club’s operations among the supporters, officials and board of trustees.
The show will involve live music. Top-selling artists Moses Makawa and Katerere Chin’goma will come face-to-face with the likes of Charles Nsaku, Rod Valamanja, Paul Subili, Davie Nsaku and Jonathan Msukwa, among others.
Chinyama said the show is one of the many activities lined up in the pre-season to raise funds that will enable the team to take care of the players before the season starts.
“As you know, the season is about to start and we need money for upkeep allowances. We have no doubt that the line-up of top musicians will woo a lot of people. The show is timely and it will help us show that we are for peace,” he said.
Chinyama appealed to the team’s fans to patronise the show and help the team raise funds.
He unveiled plans to host a big musical show at the end of every month as one way of making the joint a popular entertainment point in town.
“We will partner with different musicians to achieve our goals. We also plan to introduce urban week where local urban musicians will be performing to entertain the youth,” he said.
This will be the first time for Nsaku and company to perform at Bullets.
Since its opening last year, Bullets Clubhouse has hosted a number of top local musicians and bands including Black Missionaries, and Lucius Banda and the Zembani Band.
