The country’s top reggae outfit the Black Missionaries have said 2013 was a success although lack of music distributors was a major problem to the industry.
Speaking in an interview with Nyasa Times, the band leader Angiru Fumulani cited positive reception from the fans and the
international exposure as some of the successes in the just ended year.
“We have travelled a lot more than all the years gone like in South Africa we went there to perform three times, in Ireland and Botswana,” he said.
Locally, Fumulani said there received good response following their release of Kuimba 9 album.
“As usual, the reception was the best, everywhere we went to perform we have had a huge following and our music enjoyed some time on radio, all in all I can say the mission is still on,” he said.
He however cited lack of agents to sell their music as a major problem.
Since OG Issa closed shop on music distribution, musicians in the country have resorted in selling music on their own.
“As it is now, it means we have to sell our music on our own which is a big problem but still more, we will move forward,” he said.
