I have never been satanic—Skeffa Chimoto


Lilongwe-based musician Skeffa Chimoto, popularly known as ‘The Jamming Machine,’ because of his energetic live performances, maintained on Sunday that he has never practiced Satanism.

The singer said this on Sunday at Ozone Refreshment Centre in Blantyre where he performed for close to three hours non-stop with his Real Sounds Band.

“I have never been satanic and I will never be satanic and I don’t think I will ever be satanic,” said the musician soon after his performance which ended around 9pm.


Recently the social media has been awash with stories that the musician practises ‘Satanism’ and that he had ‘killed’ his child.

But Skeffa who was performing in Blantyre for the first time since these stories came out, told the audience that this was not true and that he has never been involved in Satanism.

“Some people are spreading all these stories because of my achievements, they just envy my success but for those who know me and where I have come from, I have worked hard to be where I am today,” said the ‘Chinamuluma Chakuda,’ hit creator.


This also comes following another story which spread out that Skeffa was seriously sick and admitted in one of the hospitals in Blantyre.

In fact during the show, one of the fans jumped on stage and said she came all the way just to see the musician after hearing the stories about his sickness.

“People have created several stories about me just to tarnish my image but God has always been faithful and He gives me power and if you look at me, I am energetic and in good health and yet others were saying I am seriously sick,” said the musician.

He added:

“I am okay with my family and for all the stories people have created God is always there and He will never put me to shame. Actually I cannot fight this battle and so God will fight for me.”

Skeffa said he will continue to perform for God who created and gave him the talent.

“If you look at my face there is no sign of shame or embarrassment,” said Skeffa.

The musician said:

“Some people do not know who Skeffa is, let me say that the time we are in at the moment is very difficult and tempting, other people may believe what they have heard, they have the freedom to believe but for those who know me know where I have come from.”

Being Valentine’s Day, Skeffa started his set performing love songs before he moved on to other songs from his albums.

From the word go, people sang along to his songs which included ‘Chinamuluma Chakuda,’ ‘Chikondi,’ ‘Ali Mbali Yanga,’ ‘Fupa Lokakamiza,’ and ‘Ndakusowa.’

As a headliner, Skeffa said he performed for a long-time during the show because he wanted to show that he was not sick but also wanted to reward the fans for their continued support.

“It was a very good show and people came in large numbers to spend time with me. It’s difficult these days for people to patronise shows as the economy is not that good. So it was not a matter of just performing but chatting with them and so I am happy,” said the singer.

Before Skeffa performed, there were also other performances from among others Lenzo Mshanga.

Skeffa has several albums to his credit and they include Tisawanyoze and Nabola Moyo.
