South Africa-Based musician Gwamba has produced a music video for a second beneficiary in Malawi’s Next Super star initiative by the name of Issabel King.
The selection of King follows the production of the first recipient Kel El.
Gwamba wrote on his Facebook page that as promised together with Ubwino the director, they were working with up and coming musicians.
“We are shooting a music video for one artist each month and we are happy to have a second artist,” he said.
King from Kamuzu Barracks in Lilongwe is a gospel artist and her music video is titled ‘Bad People’.
“I would love to see my music reach more people around the world. I want to record more music and release more solid projects such as albums and Extended Playlists (EP) and also collaborate with other artists,” she said.
She also collaborated with Mic Mash in the song titled ‘Heaven’.
Gwamba said Tuesday they were happy to introduce a second superstar and that people should watch out for more.
“As I have always said, we are living in times where an audio alone might not be enough, people prefer music videos. A lot of young artists cannot afford to shoot good music videos due to lack of funds, so, this project is to assist some of them,” Gwamba said.
Having started with a male artist, Gwamba, has fulfilled the pledge of selecting a female artist on the second slot.
On selection of artists, Gwamba maintained that they were transparent and that people were submitting songs to a WhatsApp number and that there was a team of judges doing the selection.
Gwamba has said that the initiative will run up to December.
“We will see the impact and decide whether to continue or not. This is open to any up and coming artist,” he said.
In May this year, Gwamba also announced that he has plans to hold the Malawi Hip Hop Awards in November.
