Gospel music songstress Princess Chitsulo has organised shows to thank Malawians for supporting her medical trip to South Africa and God for his healing mercies.
Proceeds from the two shows, in Blantyre and Lilongwe, will be used for fund her check-up trip due in the next six months.
The first concert takes place on June 22 at Robin’s Park in Blantyre while the Lilongwe show will be on June 27 at a venue to be announced.
“I am calling it a victory celebration concert as the main aim is to appreciate what people have done to me as well as God. It would not have been successful without both the musicians and the people that patronised the shows.
“And when I was going to South Africa, I had my fears concerning the operation which, by God’s grace, was not carried out as the doctor said I just have to get medication and return for review after six months. Some people wrote me off, but what happened was not what I was expecting,” said Chitsulo in an interview.
She said she does not take the unfaltering support that Malawians showed her at a very crucial time for granted.
Explained Chitsulo: “I came in the open asking for monetary support from the nation and so I have to share my testimony with all people. I wish I had done a free show, but because life has to go on for me and the concert is a stepping stone for me for the future, therefore it will not be free concerts as some of the proceeds will go towards the funding of my review trip.”
Asked on whether she has not rushed to go back on stage, the artist explained: “I am fit to do almost anything including standing on stage for a while to perform. So, my being back on stage is not in any way posing any health risk to my life.”
During the shows, Chitsulo will be joined by Lloyd Phiri, Thoko Katimba, Favoured Martha, Kamuzu Barracks Soldiers, Ethel Kamwendo Banda, Grace Chinga, Great Angels, with Marvellous Deeds only making an appearance in Lilongwe.
