The long-awaited Reggae by Foot Concert will take place on April 29 2017 at Civo Stadium in Lilongwe.
The stage is being set with lights and a powerful sound system already in place.
Tonderai Banda, general manager of Entertainers Promotion, organisers of the concert, said they are more than excited with the concert.
“It is never easy to bring in international artists to perform here. We have seen so many shows being cancelled, but we at Entertainers are promising the fans that we will deliver and all they have to do is fill up the stadium and feel the real reggae vibes,” he said.
Banda has urged music lovers to come in large numbers on April 29 and greet the legendary One People’s Band, Empress Sister Phumi and lead artist Thuthukani Cele.
Cele was the man who helped craft Lucky Dube’s inimitable sound and toured the world during the 1980s with Africa’s reggae king.
The keyboardist parted ways with the group when Lucky was at his peak, forming the Slaves, who released a few albums in the early 1990s before changing their name to the One People Band.
Following Dube’s tragic death in 2007, Cele and company were left flying the flag for local roots reggae, along with the current incarnation of the Lucky Dube Band. n
