Afro pop musician Dan Lufani, better known as Dan Lu, has said he will continue working with different artists as he strives to push his music career higher.
Dan Lu said yesterday that collaborations are working for him and that this was one way of penetrating the international platform faster and at the same time hitting the ceiling.
The ‘Part of Life’ hit maker, who last month performed in England alongside Lulu and Skeffa Chimoto through his Sisqo Productions, has managed to do collaborations with top Nigerian artists K-Cee and Flavour.
“I should say it here that collaborations are working and I am planning to do more. At the moment I have already finalised an audio titled Kumitambo, with Mampi and soon I will be going to Zambia to work on a music video,” he said.
Dan Lu collaborated with K-Cee in the song Sweet Banana, which he said is ready and will be launched in September
“We will launch Sweet Banana in September and K-Cee will come and I will also go to Nigeria then to South Africa,” he said.
The singer also said his 1 +1 song which he did with Flavour has been finalised and that it will also be launched once they are done with Sweet Banana.
“My focus is to hit the top and fly Malawi and Africa’s flag. We can do it as Malawi but we can also push ourselves through these collaborations. At the moment I can go and perform in Nigeria because people know me,” said Dan Lu.
He called for more support from Malawians by among others twitting and downloading his music videos.
“There is talent in the country no doubt about that but we need support through different platforms as it’s done in other countries. Social media platforms are key and so we need to embrace this area,” he said.
Artist Tay Grin is also benefiting from collaborations. His song ‘Chipapapa,’ which he collaborated with Nigeria’s 2Baba formerly 2Face is currently doing well on Trace channel.
Meanwhile Dan Lu has said he will be holding a ‘Sweet Banana Night’ at Blue Elephant in Blantyre on May 28, 2016 where he has promised to give out the best of his performance.
“It will be a night of Dan Lufani and Rockers Band. I have called it ‘Sweet Banana Night,’ because of the ‘Sweet Banana’ song,” he said.
The musician has five albums to his credit namely Shupie, Khazeni, So What? No Size and Sorry.
