The country’s Kenya-based musician Marco Sadik on Friday night performed at Chez Maky in Blantyre where he revealed that he will release his third album Nsanje in September.
The hoarse voiced musician showed potential during the concert when he performed with the Sweet Potatoes Band.
The concert attracted a sizeable audience which supported him by buying his previous albums including Zanga. Former Minister Moses Kunkuyu was also in attendance.
Sadik’s first concert was in Lilongwe where he admitted that he received a poor turnout before invading Blantyre.
He was also expected to perform at Mibawa Café on Saturday after his Chez Maky show but the concert was cancelled.
“Due to other problems the show at Mibawa Café will not take place and so I apologise to people for this change. But I am happy with my performance at Chez Maky and the support I have received from people. I have been motivated and I would like to announce that I will release my third album titled Nsanje in September,” said the musician.
Sadik has already released two singles to be part of the album and he said that he has already started receiving an overwhelming response.
The dreadlocked musician famed for the romantic hit ‘Linda,’ who finished his music studies last year in Amsterdam, Netherlands, said he will reschedule the cancelled show.
The musician recently also revealed plans to set up his own studio in Kenya which he said is aimed at giving more opportunities to artists to record and produce quality sound.
Asked why he was setting up a studio in Kenya and not Malawi so that fellow local artists experience his expertise, Sadik said:
“Kenya’s music industry is developing faster than home; it’s all about the business. I have plans to move back home but not now. For now let me do it here.”
He said he has several plans aimed at developing music but he is taking his time and that he needs to settle first.
“Well, so far I would like to settle down first but there is a lot to do on the ground. You just need to put your resources together and that is what I want to do,” said Sadik.
He also said that he will strive to connect Kenyan artists with fellow artists in Malawi so that they work on collaborations.
