Lucius Banda saluted for Busy Signal Malawi show
Veteran musician Soldier Lucius Banda has become an entertainment topic for his remarkable contribution in making the Busy Signal Malawi concert a reality.
Soldier spearheaded Impact Events company in bringing back the Jamaican reggae giant to Malawi last week. His efforts have not gone unnoticed as compliments keep pouring from Malawians.
Busy Signal made a historic return to Malawi on 3rd September as he performed in front of thousands reggae lovers at Civo Stadium in Lilongwe. The 3 hours 37 minutes performance saw the attendants harmonising to every song sang live on the night.
The Free Up hit-maker first performed in the country at the Sand Music Festival in October last year at Livingstonia Beach in Salima, courtesy of Banda. His mesmerising delivery at the festival left Malawians hungry for more no wonder Soldier could not hesitate but bring him back this year.
The 3rd September concert silenced ill willed people who were spreading rumours that the Jamaican will not come. It was another point of proof for the Balaka parliamentarian that he is not there to lie as a marketing strateg)y.
As many commentators say, it was one of the best organised entertainment events in this year. One that was very unique with a marketing strategy that involved a Malawi Defence Force Helicopter in a whistle blowing campaign for the concert.
It was a night decorated with reggae music again as the Jamaican, born Grendale Gosh Gordon put his skills on the mic on display.
In an interview with Malawi24 on Monday, Masugzo Khunga who travelled all the way from Mzuzu to witness the happening lauded Banda for his energy.
“Lucius Banda is a true son of Malawi who want the best for his countrymen. Had it not been for this man, I could not have the opportunity to witness Busy Signal perform live in my country,” said Khunga.
People have also used social media in expressing their gratitude to the Soldier for being the master of rich history in the entertainment industry.
The Zembani band father also played a paramount role in bringing to Malawi the veteran Judy Boucher on Valentine’s Day. As Banda continues dishing music while discharging his duties as a parliamentarian, a lot is being expected from him in events management.
