Musician Collins Chitimbe, who has not performed live for a long time, returns to Pa Station in Blantyre on Sunday where he is expected to give his fans a dosage of his new album Lonjezo.
Chitimbe started his music career in 2005 and Lonjezo is his fifth album.
The singer said on Tuesday that he took a break from live performances to finalise his new album.
“My album will be launched soon but I just wanted to connect with my fans first before the launch. It has been a while since I last performed live. Apart from working on my new album, I also wanted to give my younger brother time to promote his album,” said Chitimbe.
His brother Innocent, who is well known as a football commentator, released his album Luso Langa last year.
“I am now working together with my brother. With the new band that we have formed, we want to achieve great things together,” he said.
The new band, Nyasa Vibration, comprises Collins, Innocent, Richard Phopheya and Seriousman on vocals.
The others are Steve Phambala (lead guitar), Andy Chikopa (bass guitar), Dave Nachuma (keyboard), Luka Demister (percussion), Owen Chisungwi (Rhythm guitar), Blessings Chidothi (drums) and Austin Kuleti (drums).
“We have brought together experienced instrumentalists and artists who can perform at any function,” Chitimbe said.
At Pa Station on Sunday, the Nyasa Vibrations performance will be spiced up by presidential mimickers.
“We want to give full entertainment to our fans that is why we are working with the presidential mimickers,” said Chitimbe.
