Ma Blacks fire Chokani duo over revival of Wailing Brothers

Chileka-based reggae outfit the Black Missionaries have fired two of their members – Takudziwani and Paul Chokani – for allegedly setting “parallel structures,” Nyasa Times has learnt.

Wailing Brothers

Wailing Brothers

Takudziwani, a lead guitarist, and Paul, a percussionist, have been part of the Black Missionaries band for over a decade.

An inside source within the band confided in Nyasa Times that the band’s front man and leader Anjiru Fumulani has “not been happy” with the two’s recent developments.

“Anjiru has expressed discontent with the two’s revival of the Wailing Brothers last year. He has not been very happy with it and has told them to quit the band,” our source said.

The Wailing Brothers was started by the Chokani brothers who were long time confidantes of Evison Matafale – founder of the Black Missionaries band and cousin to the Fumulanis.

The duo repeatedly said in local press that they were not “disbanding.”

Anjiru, too, has reportedly been quoted in the press saying they had no problems with the Chokanis reviving the Wailing Brothers.

“The band will be involving them in the same way it involves Anthony Makondetsa,” he had said.

Anjiru could not immediately comment.

Amalawi nsanje! why can’t you concentrate on your business? Palibe amakukakamizani kukonda Ma Blacks. If you hate them, why don’t you concentrate on the other Malawian band of your liking?

Good riddance. It’s high time we give attention to other deserving reggae musicians who haven’t gone far because the promoters thought Blacks were the only thing. Rise up other guys , rise up. Soul Raiders and Hax Momba in Lilongwe, give us a break from the no longer innovative Blacks. Taku .And Paul, show us that the sharing of the stage with Blacks was making the stage become smaller and smaller. You have grown and need bigger space. Big up!!!!!!!
