Gwamba, Namadingo postpone shows over coronavirus

Gwamba show postponed

The music industry is being hit by the coronavirus scare as two great shows scheduled for next weekend have been postponed.

This comes despite the government saying no case of the COVID-19 has been recorded yet in the country.

Gwamba’s ‘Mama Said God First’ album launch at Mzuzu stadium on March 28 and Patience Namadingo ‘Mash up’ first live show on March 27 and 28 are the first to be announced as cancelled.

Namadingo said he recognises the world is putting up a fight against the virus and decided to postpone the event until official communication from the right authorities on when he can host it.

He has since promised to continue with the online release of Black Missionaries mash up in the next five days’ time.

Gwamba addressing the postponement explained that his fans are his top priority and he did not have to wait for government to say anything on the danger.

“The risk is too high and I don’t want to be part of the problem, I have chosen to be part of the solution," he said.

He pointed out that the escalation of cases in neighbouring countries like Zambia and South Africa are what prompted his response.

Gwamba has called on people to go ‘full gear’ with preventive action.
