Musician Lazarus Chigwandali, who recently launched his album Stomp on the Devil in United Kingdom (UK) and also premiered his film, has said he is still performing in the streets.
Chigwandali, who has been working with Johan Hugo of The Very Best, said he still performs in the streets because of a request from his fans.
“I would have stopped by now but people still request me to be performing, that is why I am still performing there up to now,” he said.
He however, said he plans to stop once he satisfies the people and that he is also contemplating of making his music easily available for those who need it.
Chigwandali premiered his movie in the United States of America which ended up winning an award before premiering it in Malawi and then the UK.
Last weekend, he screened the film at ‘Lake of Stars Festival’ held at Kachere Kastle in Nkhata Bay.
“Showing the film here is one way of telling my story but also the challenges that persons with albinism are facing. I will continue using music to speak for the voiceless and persons with albinism,” Chigwandali said.
He said performing at Lake of Stars this year was another testimony of the progress he has made in his music exploits.
“Through music, I have also shown that persons with albinism are talented. There are many musicians in the country but to get a chance to perform at Lake of Stars is something fulfilling,” Chigwandali said.
The artist also performed at the festival last year at Kabumba Hotel in Salima.
He said through music, he wants to tell the beauty of Malawi’s culture, hence using traditional instruments.
