Low patronage at Khama Khwiliro’s launch


Gospel singer Khama Khwiliro on Sunday finally launched his second album titled Ndawona Kuwala at Robin’s Park in Blantyre.

The singer’s launch however, received a poor audience.

But despite this setback, the gospel musician, who had a stint with Christ Melodies before going solo, went about his business belting out several songs from his latest album.


Unlike other launches where artists only offer a few songs from their new albums, Khama did well performing almost half of the songs in Ndawona Kuwala and even went an extra mile dishing out songs from his first album Nthawi Yanga.

Auction which is the order of the day during launches and has always delayed performances also took place during Khama’s launch but it came late on after the youthful gospel musician had done enough to satisfy the audience.

People supported the artist during auction and the highest bidder was musician Davis Njobvu’s wife, who got the CD at K60,000.


Khama whose music is maturing lacked the energy on stage which he needs to improve on.

The gospel singer has recorded the 13-track album in several studios and some of the songs in the album ‘Alinawo Maso,’ which is currently enjoying airplay, ‘Wandiwolosa,’ ‘Ndife Agonjesi,’ and ‘Mzimu Wanga,’ a worship song which he featured Limbani Simenti.

Khwiliro hailed those who patronised his launch saying from Blantyre, he is now targeting Lilongwe and Mzuzu early next year.

“I am not disappointed with the audience, I am just satisfied with what I gave the people and I just thank God for the people who came up,” he said.

Some artists who were billed to perform however, did not show up which disappointed some of the people who were eager to sample performances from the other acts.

Khwiliro said he never lied to the people on the line up of the artists set to perform and said some decided to stay away and did not communicate.

“All the artists I put on the menu were supposed to perform, I received an apology from Princess Chitsulo who said she had lost a cousin, Faith Mussa is in the USA and Ndirande Anglican Voices came but they left but I never got a word from other artists,” he said.

Other artists who performed on the day were Limbani Simenti, King James Phiri and Mau K who was equally good and closed the chapter.
