Kuimba 10, a recently released album by reggae legendary band ‘The Black Missionaries’ band has been rated as “worth to spend for” by Mzuzu-based fans and analysts.
The album, yet to be launched in the busiest city of the northern region, among others comprises such songs as Tizingocheza, Sikwathu and Sindingakwanitse which are already enjoying sexy airplay on most radio stations.
The Black Missionaries, popularly known as Ma ‘Blacks will launch the album in the northern region on August 30 at O ‘Seasons Club in Mzuzu.
Nation Publications Limited (NPL) entertainment journalist in the northern region John Chirwa said “Kuimba 10 is far much better than Kuimba 9.”
Said Chirwa: “With the new album [Kuimba 10], they [Black Missionaries] have actually showed that they are here to stay. Kuimba 9 was not well received, but this album has.”
Chirwa said that “in fact the venue will be very small” for the launch.
“I wish Mzuzu had bigger venues,” Chirwa opined.
Another entertainment analyst working with Voice of Livingstonia of the CCAP Synod of Livingstonia Mzuzu Sylvester Kapondera said much as the band had given an “overdose” of love songs, “the album was still very good to go.”
Kenneth Gama, an arts student presently pursuing an arts degree at Mzuzu University (Mzuni) said ‘Kuimba 10’ was a reflection that the Black Missionaries had “come of age and were maturing.”
Said Gama: “Kuimba 9 was to most of us a prophecy that the young men had reached the end of the road. But 10 [Kuimba 10] has proved all of us wrong. I’m ready to part away with my K2 000 for the launch.”
Leader of the band Anjiru Fumulani was recently quoted by local media that the “North should expect the best from us.”
The Black Missionaries Band was founded by legendary musician Evison Matafale, who died under mysterious circumstances in the early 2000.
The band has been propelled ahead by the Fumulani family, of course with support from the Chokani brothers – Takudziwani and Paul.
The Blacks’ song, Police hunt Matafale, recounting the events prior to Matafale’s death is one of the most loved songs by fans during the band’s live performances.
Arts and entertainment analyst Chirwa said “this time around songs Sindingakwanitse, Tizingocheza and Sikwathu are likely to steal time at the show.”Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
