Agide still going strong
Legendary musician Giddes Chalamanda, popularly known as Agide, said on Saturday he still has more fuel in his tank to continue performing.
The ‘Che Meli’ star who continues to attract interest from event organisers, last Saturday, backed by Alleluya Band, spiced up Senzo’s show at Club 24/7 in Blantyre.
“I am enjoying every moment in music; music is what has made me what I am today and I am determined to continue performing,” he said.
The Chiradzulu-based artist, now in his 90s, once again proved his strength during the show when he performed a reggae-mash-up medley in which he collaborated with Patience Namadingo.
“I have said now and again that I will not stop music, I will continue entertaining people until the day I die,” he said in an interview.
Having performed earlier, warming the stage for South African artist Senzo Mthethwa, Agide went to rest but he returned on stage to dance with Anthony Mr Cool Makondetsa.
“He continues to stun a lot of people with his performances. Of course, he needs not to perform for long because of his age but he still has the energy looking at what he did tonight,” Bright Kambani, one of the fans, said.
The legendary musician said he has lots of new songs and that, resources permitting, he would record them.
