Amfumu seeks to conquer Capital City


Poet and Times Radio presenter Kenneth Khondiwa popularly known as Amfumu storms Lilongwe CCAP Hall on Sunday to launch a CD and DVD of his debut poetry album Anaponda ndi Mapazi Satana.

The poet, who hosts a poetry programme Bwalo la Alakatuli on Times Radio said on Wednesday that he was set for the launch.

“I am excited; I have been waiting for this day and I thank God that that day is here. I have worked hard and have practised and so it’s all good,” said Khondiwa.


His launch in Lilongwe comes barely three weeks after he launched the album at Chrichi Gardens in Blantyre where he is reported to have attracted a huge audience.

“I am happy that I am launching a double after the world celebrated the World Poetry Day. There were no activities on the day and so this is one of the activities celebrating this day despite that it is a launch,” said the poet.

The DVD for Anaponda ndi Mapazi Satana has 10 poems while the CD has 20 poems.


Some of the poems people can sample in the album are ‘Maloto,’ ‘DJ Wakushower,’ ‘Tisewere ndi Maina,’ ‘Ndakatulo Yangayi,’ ‘Zinthu Zakwera Mtengo,’ and ‘Akachisuta.’

Some of the poets set to spice up the launch include Hudson Chamasowa, Samuel Joseph, Raphael Sitima, Sylvester Kalizang’oma, Michael Benjala, Wamtali Savala Gogoda, Yohane Pangani and Patwell Phiri.

He said there will also be GYV Dancing Crew and mimicker Mr India.

Poetry has of late gained ground attracting massive audiences although some quarters have said poets need to slow down as others are producing half-baked material.

Others have also pointed out that some poets are losing direction mistaking comics for poetry.

However, some poets have come out to say that things have changed and that what was on the ground now is another type of poetry.
