Patience Namadingo hits 4


Musician Patience Namadingo has dropped his fourth single titled ‘Goliati’.

The fresh single was released on Monday night and, according to the singer, the track can be downloaded for free on

Namadingo dropped the single barely three days after performing at Victoria Gardens in Blantyre where he curtain-raised the show for the country’s UK-based comedian Daliso Chaponda in a show dubbed The President of Laughrica.


Just like he did in a skit, in which he talks about power outages, Namadingo, who has rebranded, seems to be taking a leading role in tackling issues affecting the country.

With Malawians struggling and failing to make ends meet due to myriad challenges, Namadingo, through ‘Goliati’, comes out to give hope to the hopeless that, no matter how big the challenges they are facing, every problem has a solution.

Namadingo track takes people through the story of Goliath versus David in the Bible which is in the Old Testament book of Samuel.


The David versus Goliath battle— a contest where a smaller and weaker opponent David faces a much bigger and stronger adversary and warrior Goliath— takes on a more popular meaning, denoting an underdog situation.

Despite being a smaller and weaker opponent, David defeats Goliath.

Namadingo has adopted a beat associated with the Yao in the song.

“I want people to be encouraged through this song; to be strengthened and to know that every problem has a solution. No matter how big the problem, they should not think that running away is a solution or being corrupt is a solution, or that committing suicide is a solution or that to sin is a solution,” he said.

Namadingo said he, as a musician, has a role to play by speaking for the voiceless.

“Every artist should play a role and speak on behalf of those who do not have the platform. They have to use it and that is what I am doing,” the ‘ Msati Mseke’ star said.

His said this was his last song this year.

“This song has been done on a Yao scale, it’s a Yao rhythm, Yao beat, Yao accent and if you sample the first verse it has a Yao accent; hence, my name should be pronounced in a Yao accent. It’s not that I have changed my name but [that relates] only [to] this song,” Namadingo said.

He said that through the song he wants to celebrate Yao people.

Some of the singles Namadingo has released this year are ‘Sindinjenjemera’, ‘Mayikolo’ and ‘Dziko Lili pa Moto’.

Meanwhile, Namadingo has said he will end the year on a high note by hosting another concert at Bingu International Convention Centre in Lilongwe on December 23.

“This is my last live concert this year where we will have two acts in one man. Patience the standup comedian and Namadingo the musician will share the stage,” he said.
