Gramps Morgan pays tribute to ‘soldier’

Reggae music icon Gramps Morgan has extended his condolences to the people of Malawi following the death of one of the country’s top artists, “soldier” Lucius Banda.

In a brief post on his social media pages, Morgan reminisces about the time he performed on Malawian soil, compliments of Sand Music Festival, a brainchild of “soldier”.

“Bro Lucius Banda RIP I mourn with you Malawi… I’ll never forget the night singing with you all at the Sand Music Festival…condolences to the wife, children and the entire family,” reads Gramps’ post.

Sam Smack, a protege of “soldier”, also pays tribute to his mentor, describing him as a testament to the power of music as a tool for social change and the importance of standing up for one’s beliefs.

“Your passing, Soja, is like a sudden power outage during the peak of a Zembani performance—life without you is unimaginable. I yearned for tomorrow, but it has already slipped away. Lucius, I can still hear your voice, whispering on the wind, reminiscent of our collaboration on “Kudikila.” The band is playing, I’ve delivered my verse, Ndikudikila kuti muimbe ….yet still, you do not come…,” he mourns through a post on Facebook.

Late Banda died at Sunninghill Hospital in South Africa and he is expected to be laid to rest on Thursday in Balaka District.
