Blantyre — Mothers in Blantyre got a rare Gospel Mothers' Day treat at Robin's Park on Monday applauding organizers of the show who brought together big names in the gospel music arena including the country's top comedians.

Notable performers at the show included Ethel Kamwendo Banda, Paul Banda, Mighty POV, Ndirande Anglican Voices, Maggie Mangani and Wycliff Chimwendo just to mention a few.

In addition to the performances, mothers had the rare opportunity of winning different gifts during a quiz which saw some mothers going away with a wrapper (chitenje).
