Codi rises in Winehouse gig


Musician Codi offered people a special Easter Sunday treat at HS Winehouse in Blantyre.

The artist, real name Chikondi Suleman, took people on a journey of her own music before shifting to playing covers.

It was a display that attracted a sizeable audience which included Codi’s husband Daud and her mother and other relatives.


The musician, who has performed in different places, draws on her diverse upbringing to create a fusion of afro-centric beats that are influenced by her blood ties with Zimbabwean and South African backgrounds.

Some of her compositions she dished out on the day include ‘Mwezi Uwale’ and ‘Wamisala’.

There were moments when she took people down memory lane, offering covers of artists such as Michael Jackson.


She also had time to perform songs done by other well-known African artists.

There was also a moment when she invited audience members to make requests of the covers they wanted her to perform.

“I am happy to perform here, it’s been a long break,” Codi said who starred live with her band Find Codi.

HS Winehouse has created a platform for artists to showcase their talents in the absence of shows due to Covid.

“We want to engage all artists in different disciplines to star here. We want poets, comedians and others and not only musicians. At the moment musicians have been forthcoming.

“We will also continue to observe Covid measures until the situation normalises,” HS Winehouse publicist Emmanuel Maliro said.

Codi performed at the venue barely a week after it hosted Lilongwe-based musician Lulu.
