Zambia: DMK's Mark Kabalu Weds

GOSPEL outfit DMK member Mark Kabalu last weekend bade farewell to bachelorhood when he married his heartthrob Mwaka Mandefu at a colourful wedding held at Levy Mwanawasa Stadium in Ndola.

The marriage ceremony was spiced up by the likes of gospel artiste Kings 'Malembe Malembe', who put up a splendid performance.

Kabalu's group mates Davies Ingwee and Kelvin Mwansa were also present at the function, where close to 500 people turned up.

DMK, who are known for their song Favour, have been together for a number of years now, although in recent times, the trio took up other prospects.

Kelvin had gone to South Africa for studies but now he is back. Davis had left for Australia to marry his 'sweetheart' and he is

back just for a few months.

But for now, they are back together for a few months to record a video for a new project.

Their album Favour was shortlisted at both the Mukuba Awards in 2010 and Radio Christian Voice Song-of-the-Year awards held in 2011.

Apart from performing locally, DMK has also performed in other

countries such as South Africa, Botswana, Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and recently in Namibia where they performed before of a capacity crowd of 1,800 people at the Namibian University.

With their third project due for release in three weeks, and the possibility of winning the coveted best African gospel video award beckoning, the sky seems not to be the limit for DMK.

DMK was recently nominated for the KORA award for best gospel video which

will be contested by groups from five countries namely Zambia, Uganda,

Nigeria, DRC, and South Africa.

The wedding was graced by Muchinga Member of Parliament Howard Kunda.

Others in attendance were Marvin of the B3 dual, Trinity Ambassadors, pastors and bishops and several others.
