Malawi’s golden soccer export to South Africa Frank Gabadinho Mhango was on Saturday night the man to take picture with at Chancellor College’s Great Hall as his surprise appearance forced multitudes on stage.
Gaba was introduced on the stage by Theo Thompson during the musician’s performance. The Kutentha singer was just about to switch to the next song when he asked Mhango to join him on stage.
It was a moment worth tears of disbelief when Gaba showed up on the platform, hotly dressed. The Flames international shared two T-shirts with the people amidst heavy roaring.
His presence was beyond reasonable doubt the highlight of the night which overshadowed all music giants who were on the list of performers.
The Great Hall was turned into a stadium in as far as cheering was concerned. People who sat at the Biafra and Darfur sections of the hall uncontrollably screamed Gaba! Gaba!
Admirers could be heard speaking highly of the footballer. Others said, mfana ndiovaya uyu (the lad is on a higher level).
The multitude that stormed the stage having caught sight of Mhango found it hard to leave when the soccer star left, hoping there was going to be a second coming of the football star.
The Social weekend which began Friday night with a gig at the College’s complex reached a climax on Saturday night. Music performances by Young Kay, Malinga Mafia, Charisma, Blaze, Dali and Theo Thompson among others decorated the night.
The fun reached a comma on Sunday. The social weekend was dubbed “8/8 Socials”, as it was the very last for final year students having spent 8 semesters at the institution.
