Ndirande Anglican Voices disappointed Mzuzu fans on Sunday when the choir pocketed K250 000 to sing their songs during the launch of Owen Kayange album called Musadere Nkhawa but only one choir member came for the show and sang two songs.
The only member that came, Dennis Kalinde only stood on stage and led the fans into singing two of the choirs’ songs.
“This is broad day robbery of our money. We expected the whole choir to participate in the launch. I came to see Ndirande Anglican Voices Choir sing their songs on stage but I have been disappointed that they have not come but only one person. What is that?,” fumed Alackson Gondwe at Mzuzu Hotel during the launch.
Another fan Chrissie Longwe could not hide her anger also.
“How does the choir collect K250 000 to sing and only sends one member who sings two songs only? If the choir is more into business than spreading the Gospel then they are overdoing it,” said Longwe.
“How does the choir justify the collection of K250 000 meant for their total participation of the album launch? I don’t want to see this happen again with any other group be it secular or religious. When we pay our money we deserve the best and not raw deal,” chipped in another fan Getrude Mwafulirwa.
Another gospel artist Grace Chinga is also expected in Mzuzu and fans have warned to deal with her should she disappoint them likewise.
“This warning is not going to Grace Chinga alone but all artists,” said Mwafulirwa.
Other supporting artists that supported the launch included the Marvelous Deeds, Armstrong Kalua and Peter Mlangeni.
Kayange paid the supporting artists including Ndirande Anglican Voices.
Both Kalinde and Kayange refused to comment on the issue.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
