Two Jamaican artists, Luciano and Everton Blender who performed at the Reggae Jam Musical Festival in Lilongwe, have on Monday donated K1million towards the construction of Kawale Nyahbinghi Tabernacle.

Luciano, popularly known as Jah Messenger, said in an interview with 247 Malawi News that they did not get paid for their performance on Saturday as a gesture of showing love and care for the Rasta community.

He since then promised to source more money and other resources from people in the diaspora.

“We pledge our commitment to provide finances for the completion of the project,” Luciano said.

On his part, Everton Blender urged the Rastafalian community to preach peace and love.

“Jah people we need peace and let me tell you, you need more charity works.Do not just smoke Marijuana and dreadlocks, that is not being a Rasta,” Blender said.

Rasta Fred Mwanamanga, who is one of the Priests at the tabernacle, thanked the two Jamaican musicians for the kind gesture.
