Mr. Jokes

Mr. Jokes has a problems with gospel artists.

He threw the jabs when he was on stage at the Miss Blantyre show last Friday.

Mr Jokes. real name Andrew Thonyiwa cited the songs like Ondikonda Ndili Naye by Favoured Martha, Mundisungile Kolona by the late Grace Chinga and Baraba by Evance Meleka.

‘’These songs seem that the artists have personal issues and they want to cheat people with unholy concepts of that sort. They want to force people to believe they are gospels artists. We need change seriously,’’ he said while sending the patrons into laughter.

He then performed a song that gave emphasize to the word ‘Halleluiah’ which he said was a pure reflection of a gospel song.

‘’You see what, a gospel song must preach the word of God and not hold conflict concepts like in the songs I have named here.’’ Said the comedian.

A cross section of patrons Malawi24 spoke to had argued that the comedian had a point and said the gospel music genre is seemingly going haywire and its been covered up by mediocrity.

At the event, Hanna Mhone emerged winner with Myria Khoza coming as first Princess and Chimwemwe Khembo as the third Princess.
