The event, which was characterised by performances from other gospel artistes on hand to support DMK, was a carry-over from the Africa Unite gospel music Concert held barely three weeks ago at Levy Mwanawasa Stadium.
However, the only difference between the two events is that the concert held last Friday only featured local gospel artistes and church choirs, be it though from various parts of the country.
Kick-starting the show was the Bread of Life Church International (BLCI) Triumphant choir, then Pichoux with his usual Rhumba medley, followed by Ausward Chitete who performed the title track of his recent project ‘Hold On’.
Ausward was followed by “Mp the President” from Lusaka and “JP Winter” from Kabwe, after whom came Nokutula and the Anointed Generation.
The Anointed Generation is a group of four youthful singers born from the same family and chose to join gospel music ministry at a tender age.
The stage was also set ready by Trinity Ambassadors, Josiah, Suwilanji, Mumbi Mulunda and the Grace Ministries Church choir before DMK arrived on the scene just at the stroke of midnight.
The trio, greeted with ululation and jubilation from the audience, quickly swang into action with the hit ‘Worry No More’ which is the title track of their new project.
Among other songs that followed was ‘Favour’ from DMK’s second album ‘Favour’.
Bethel City Church International overseer Apostle Robert Bwalya, who commissioned the album on behalf of the gospel sons, urged local gospel artistes to commit themselves to service above performance.
“Every musician gathered here tonight has a purpose of service through ministry to the people and each one of you must take up this mantle,” he said.
Times Entertainment, however, observed with concern that the premises in which this concert was held has no adequate air conditioning facilities to cater for the large crowds attending such events.
The onus,therefore, is on the concerned authorities to address this issue as a matter of urgency because it is cardinal not only for conducive room temperature during the hot season, but also to the well-being of attendants and participants of mammoth events.
