Gospel musician Khama Khwiliro has been spicing up several gospel concerts recently but now he gets down to the stage to launch his second album titled Ndawona Kuwala at Robin’s Park in Blantyre on Sunday.

This is the musician’s second project since he went solo having starred with Christ Melodies for some time.

Khwiliro said on Wednesday that he is ready for the launch severalwhich he has been planning for months.

“It’s been long but now the time is here, I am ready, I have had massive rehearsals and all I can promise people is nothing but the best live performance, come Sunday,” he said.

With several gospel musicians launching albums recently, many people feel that launch concerts are always the same with nothing new to offer.

But Khwiliro said his launch is unique and that people should just patronise the concert.

“I have taken my time in preparing this launch and there is so much that I have invested so I cannot afford to disappoint people rather putting up the best,” he said.

Khwiliro has used experienced artists in his second album.

“I have grown musically and when I sit back and look at productions with Christ Melodies I see growth. My stint with Christ Melodies helped me learn a lot and made it easier for me to advance in my solo career and I actually learnt a lot in terms of production,” said Khwiliro, who comes from a family of musicians.

He has taken close to over two years since he released his debut album titled Nthawi Yanga.

The gospel singer has recorded the 13-track album in several studios.

“I have worked with several producers and the idea was to bring out the best but also something different. I looked at all my songs and I had to involve different producers as regards the genres they are good at,” he said.

Khwiliro said his first album did well on the market and that it is still selling.

Some of the songs in Ndawona Kuwala are ‘Alinawo Maso,’ which is currently enjoying airplay in some of the local radio stations, ‘Wandiwolosa,’ ‘Igwe,’ ‘Ndife Agonjesi,’ and ‘Mzimu Wanga,’ a worship song which he featured Limbani Simenti.

Khwiliro has already produced four music videos for some of the songs in the new album and they include ‘Alinawo Maso,’ ‘Igwe,’ ‘Ndaona Kuwala,’ and ‘Mmene Tinkayamba Chikhristu.’

“I am only launching an audio for now but after the launch I will finalise the music videos and hope to launch the DVD next year,” he said.

Some of the producers he has worked with include Amos Mlolowa of Active A Studio, who also produced albums for Lucius Banda and Black Missionaries, Dick Kankhunda, Alex and Obed Chitheka and Gaffa.

He has also worked with session artists Faith Mussa, Mvahiwa Hanke and Chambota Chirwa.

Some of the artists spicing up Khwiliro’s launch are Simenti, Favoured Martha, Steve Wazisomo Muliya, Marvellous Deeds, Ndirande Anglican Voices, King James Phiri and Princess Chitsulo. He will however, miss the services of Mussa, who left for the US with Peter Mawanga on Wednesday.
