King James Phiri in new album project
After being silent for some time, gospel musician King James Phiri is on the verge of releasing an album.
The artist, who recently was involved in an accident but survived with minor injuries, said he has struggled to record music because of the demise of Joseph Tembo, who was his producer.
“I have recorded all my albums with the late Joseph Tembo and, so, it has been hard to move forward. I have been trying to find another producer and now I am working with Andy Mponya,” the Blantyre-based singer said.
The ‘Mukumane Ndi Moyo Wanga’ star has since finalised two songs off the new album.
“I am releasing the first song titled ‘Dzukani Mundimenyere Nkhondo’ Friday (today). It’s been tough recording this track, especially where we are experiencing a hard life with Covid, but God has been faithful. Everything is ready and I will follow that up with ‘Ngati Yehova Watsegula Khomo’ the other week,” Phiri said.
He said, just as he did with his previous album by launching two projects, he is also targeting the same this time with the other album being on praise and worship.
“I have always enjoyed praise and worship and this is why I have taken this drive of crafting praise and worship albums,” he said.
Phiri said he will also feature South African artist Lufuno Dagada in his other 10-track album.
His other previous projects include Chichitika
