In the new Mash up , Namadingo sweet melodious voice takes turns with super vocalist Anjiru Fumulani . Using a fast paced reggae riddim , the duo goes through a string of hits by Black Missionaries such as Salimo , Ndamusowa , Ndilibe naye Chifukwa before Chizondi Fumulani chips in to deliver songs like Reggae Music high. They also took time to honour the late Evison Matafale with renditions of Nkhoswe, Olenga dzuwa and Mkango wa Yuda
Namadingo was due to have Mash Up live performances, however, these have been cancelled due to the corona virus pandemic. President Mutharika recently announced measures to contain the spread of the virus that includes ban on public gatherings.
The concerts featuring among others, reggae group Black Missionaries and Lucius Banda, were scheduled to take place on March 27 2020 at Comesa Hall in Blantyre and March 28 at Bingu International Convention Centre (BICC) in Lilongwe.
Despite the country not having registered any coronavirus case, Namadingo said it was important for them to postpone the concerts.
“The health of the fans is very important, and we thought we should take that decision,” he said. Some countries in Europe have postponed different events including football matches due to coronavirus.
