After working with renowned Ugandan gospel musician Levixone in a number of projects including collaborating in the track ‘Zikomo’, Wendy Harawa has connected with more Ugandan musicians.
One of the artists Wendy has partnered include gospel dancehall musician Colifixe.
“I had a press briefing with him about 2022 gospel music plans; we want to strengthen the relationship between Malawi and Uganda as part of propelling gospel music in Africa,” Wendy, who is currently in Uganda said.
“We have done a song together; again, he does charity as well and reaches out to vulnerable people which I also do and, so, we will be doing this work together as you know I also have the Wendy Harawa Foundation,” Wendy added.
She said in the process of this, some Ugandan artists will also make their way to Malawi and work with some of the country’s artists.
“Being an African and Malawian, working with Ugandan artists is part of promoting the country’s tourism and, so, it is not only about music but also selling Malawi out there and showing what it has apart from talent,” she said.
Wendy said this partnership is also about her serving her country and promoting cultural tourism.
“Gospel music in Uganda is full of life and it is what the world needs. There is more; it is not only about Uganda, I showed it last year when I worked with artists such as Maranatha from Namibia and Guardian Angel from Kenya. So, from Uganda, we will be moving back to Zambia and then Kenya,” she said.
Apart from Colifixe, Wendy is also set to collaborate with Grace Nachimera.
Colifixe described the link with Wendy as a big project.
“We had a great time working together in the studio; it was like we have been working together for years. I am happy about this collaboration because it is through projects like these that we can grow our industries internationally and preach the gospel to the world through music,” he said.
The song Wendy and Colifixe are set to release is titled ‘Obichusiza’ (Halle Halle).
Nachimera also said she was happy to work with Wendy through music to connect Uganda and Malawi.
“This is also about connecting two cultures in faith for the Lord Jesus Christ. I also think we have a lot in common; I was a secular artist and now I am into gospel and it is the same with Wendy. Again we both love charity,” he said.
Nachimera said she linked up with Wendy through Levixone and that through their stories it was important for them to work together and do some magic through music.
