Sisqo and Dru Hill to perform n Malawi

Multi-platinum selling American music group, Dru Hill, together with lead singer Sisqó, will perform in Malawi’s capital Lilongwe on December 12.

The group, composed of four members namely Sisqó, Jazz, Nokio and Tao, is scheduled to perform at the 8,000 capacity Malawi Square at Umodzi Park.

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

Dru Hill 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”.

Umodzi Park sales and marketing manager, Temwa Kanjadza, who confirmed Dru Hill’s Malawi concert on Monday, said they decided to bring in the group because of their exciting package.

“We wanted a very competent package and Dru Hill just qualified. Those who know Dru Hill will agree with me that the group knows how to dance on stage and they also sing well and that worked well with our intent,” said Kanjadza.

The group will be joined on stage by local musician Skeffa Chimoto and Veejay Ice.

From Lilongwe, the group will be heading to South Africa where they are scheduled to perform at the Emperors Palace in Johannesburg on December 18.

Dru Hill released two successful albums, “Dru Hill” and “Enter the Dru”, before separating for a period from late 1999 to 2002, during which time Sisqó and Woody released solo albums.

While Woody’s Soul Music LP was a moderate success in the gospel music industry, Sisqó’s debut album, “Unleash the Dragon”, and its hit single, “Thong Song”, were major pop successes, and established Sisqó as a household name outside of Dru Hill.

In 2002, by then part of the Def Soul record label, the group reunited and added fifth member Scola to the lineup for their third album, “Dru World Order”, whose underperformance led to the group being dropped from Def Soul.

The the group signed to Kedar Entertainment Group in 2009 and released their fourth album, “InDRUpendence Day”, the following year, with new member Tao taking the place of the again departed Woody.
