The group was expected in Malawi on Friday but Dru Hill has not turned up and Nyasa Times understands there will be no show.

They were coming courtesy of Peermont Hotels, the managers of Umodzi Park.

Umodzi Park sales and marketing manager, Temwa Kanjadza, who confirmed Dru Hill has failed to arrive in Malawi , said the concert has been cancelled.

A statement from the organizers which Nyasa Times has sourced, confirmed that Dru Hill decided to cancel the trip to the warm heart of Africa.

They have also cancelled trip to South Africa where they were scheduled to perform at the Emperors Palace in Johannesburg on December 18.

“Disappointingly, Tigere Media, a South African based promoter has cancelled the Dru Hill concert scheduled to take place at Umodzi Park on December 12,” reads in part the statement issued out by Umodzi Park Sales and Marketing Manager, Temwa Kanjadza .

Kanjadza said a dispute between the artist and Tigere Media resulted in the unfortunate cancellation of the concert.

Many music lovers especially in Lilongwe had already bought tickets to the events, and the development will surely infuriate corporate sponsors such as Airtel Malawi who were part of those supporting the event.

She said they have started  processing the refunds to those who bought advance tickets.

“Those who have already purchased tickets through various selling points in Lilongwe, Blantyre and Mzuzu will receive a full refund,” she added.

The group was expected to be joined on stage by local musician Skeffa Chimoto and Veejay Ice.

Dru Hill is composed of four members namely Sisqó, Jazz, Nokio and Tao. The group was most popular during the late 1990s, with a repertoire that included R&B, soul, hip hop soul and gospel music.

Active since 1992, Dru Hill recorded seven Top 40 hits, and is best known for the R&B number one hits “In My Bed”, “Never Make a Promise”, and “How Deep Is Your Love”.

These are washed up perfomers. They are not even remembered in the USA. They probably failled to show up because they couldnt afford their plane tickets. They are on welfare benifits for god’s sake.
