Speaking in an exclusive interview, Rumbie says she is ready and steady for the show and has promised fireworks and an electrifying show.

Rumbie: To perform in Malawi.

“Later I received messages from tweeter, WhatsApp, Facebook that I should come and perform again. Now I am here and I will perform for 2 hours,” said Rumbie.

Rumbie, who has four albums to her name disclosed that she loves Malawian music but she advised all gospel musicians to rehearse more on live performances.

“I really love Malawian music, they sing well and their songs contain huge and inspiring messages. But one thing they need to improve on is stage performances. They should rehearse more,” she said.

Meanwhile, one of the organizers of the show Thoko Suya says she is delighted that Rumbie is in the country and has urged all Malawians to come and support the show.

“I am glad that finally Rumbie is in the country. She is ready and all the supporting artists are also eager for the show. Let me urge all gospel lovers to come in large numbers and witness how our friends did. Come and enjoy, dance until you broke your bones,” she said.

The Zimbabwean artist will share the stage with Allan Chirwa, Thoko Suya, Steve wazisomo Muliya, Harris Chiwalo and Ndirande Angelica voices.

During the show, which will start from 11am up until 6pm, people will be mesmerized by songs from Rumbie like Mutsawashe, muchandipupurira, humambo kwako, Tsungurira denga, famba namweya.
