The organisers said the Miss Malawi Ireland pageant aims to inspire its participants to become involved in fundraising for their communities rather than it just being a platform for launching modelling careers.

The show will be spiced up by the performance of Malawi’s popular reggae band, Black Missionaries.

Black Missionaries band – commonly referred as ‘Ma Blacks’  – known for hard core reggae rhythm have just released an album Kuyimba 9. Malawians in Ireland with some travelling from United Kingdom will be making to the show.

The show also received a boost from Malawi’s President Joyce Banda  who through the Joyce Banda Foundation International procured eight air tickets for the band members and also provided their subsistence allowances.
