Promising youthful artist, Eli Njuchi is determined to continue from where he left off last year in his music exploits as he is set to drop his debut music collection titled The Book of Z on April 5 2020.
The youthful artist, said he decided to name his EP The Book of Z because all the songs in the musical collection has stories that start with the letter Z.
He said that the stories in the collection were “very personal to him”.
“These are stories of hardwork and self-belief, that I believe are key to ones success in life,” Njuchi said in a statement.
The EP comes as artists have postponed and cancelled live performances due to covid-19 pandemic.
Njuchi said he had planned to launch the EP with his newly set-up band – The Hive at Barbecues in Blantyre but had postponed it until further notice.
He joins other artists such as Gwamba and Patience Namadingo, who also postponed their shows due to Covid-19 fears.
Off the EP, Njuchi has already released two singles ‘Zitheke’ and ‘Zitaye’.
The EP has been recorded and mastered by Sispence with beats from Yesaya, Tricky Beats, Dhali Beats and Blage.
Njuchi has won the hearts of many with his music and last year he made history in his musical career by being one of the youngest artists to star at the 16th edition of Lake of Stars Discovery held at Kachere Kastle in Nkhata Bay.
Njuchi said he was in music not to make up numbers but rather to help develop the industry and that his music was not about “quantity but quality”.
“I want to make it big not only in Malawi but the world. However, that can only come when I show the best of what I am made of and at the same time stay focused and strive to bring out the best,” he said.
The artist, who has turned 19 this year, said last year that he was challenged to push his music further having got the opportunity of performing at a big platform – Lake of Stars Discovery as well as sharing the stage with experienced musicians.
The artist came to the limelight after releasing the song ‘Illuminati’.
