Entertainers Promotions have announced their first music concert since going into hibernation due to the Covid-19 pandemic which brought outdoor live performances to a halt.
Announcing their return, Entertainers Promotions said they have organised a music concert dubbed Utsi Tuluka We Are Back Concert to be held at Motel Paradise in Blantyre this evening.
Entertainers Promotions director Tonderai Banda said they are glad to finally return to the big stage after they failing to do so on August 31 when their initial comeback show coincided with a fresh surge of Covid-19 cases.
He said: “It has been a long wait. We are back and better. We are promising our patrons a good outing. They should come and mingle with friends as they enjoy good music, stage lighting and sound of international standards.”
Banda said to avoid last-minute technical glitches, they will set up the stage a day before the show. Professional sound engineer Shadreck Kalukusha has since been tasked with the job of manning the sound control system.
Fresh from last week’s Sand Music Festival engagements, Lucius Banda and Zembani Band and local reggae giants Black Missionaries Band will headline the show which will also feature other notable acts.
But the surprise name on the line-up is South Africa-based Malawian Afro-pop artist Tombo K who is currently on holiday in the country.
“It is always exciting to come back home and perform before your own people. I am happy to be given this opportunity by Entertainers Promotions. I can’t wait to show my fans what I have learnt over the years,” she said.
The show, which is a phungwe (dusk to dawn gig), will also feature Anthony Makondetsa, Moda Fumulani, Jonny Zembani-Banda, Sam Smack, Yamikani Chumbu, Nepman, Six Solid Band and Reggae Warriors, among others.
