Last December, the band disappointed their fans when they performed using pre-recorded instruments during their first show at the venue in question.
Fans bought tickets hoping to see the whole movement, but only to be treated to pre-recorded instruments and back tracks. This did not go well the patrons who didn’t have kind words for the band.
However, the group apologized to their fans and promised to return with the whole movement.
It was also transpired that their promoter did not inform local revellers in advance that the band would use pre-recorded instruments per their agreement.
“They are coming back to rectify what happened and the whole CTBC music movement will be here. We have to give people the show they want, so the whole band will be in Malawi, no substitutes,” Mphatso Chaluluka, Born Afrikan Productions events coordinator, recently said when the band confirmed their second coming to Malawi.
