Patience Namadingo wants to set pace – Manager
Manager for musician Patience Namadingo, Emmanuel Maliro has said people have not seen enough of the youthful singer and guitarist as there is more to come.
Maliro, the man behind Mizu Entertainment and Mizu Band, said Namadingo is going the right direction in terms of growing his music.
“What we want is to come up with classic shows that would be worth their money. So Patience has started all this and we know he is not yet there but he has shown potential and all what is needed now is the support from people,” said Maliro.
He then hailed people for patronising the launch of Namadingo’s third album titled Lero starting off with Comesa Hall in Blantyre on Saturday night and then Sunbird Capital Hotel in Lilongwe on Sunday.
“People have shown that they are ready to support good concerts, on a night where we had rains earlier in Blantyre people came in large numbers and it was the same in Lilongwe where people came in large numbers,” he said.
Maliro said just like in Blantyre where Namadingo put up a splendid performance, he also did the same in Lilongwe.
Namadingo said having launched the album in Blantyre and Lilongwe; he now wants to go on a tour of universities as well as other areas.
“The support people have given me has motivated me and this is just the beginning of more things to come. As I said I composed several songs but some did not make it in this Lero album so I have more to produce,” said the singer, who has others albums Goshen and Tili ndi Yesu.
Maliro said just like in Blantyre, the master of ceremonies was Times Television presenter Brian Banda, who also conducted an auction.
During auction, several people got the CD at over K30,000 with two people including Zikhale Ng’oma buying it at K100,000 each.
The Bondages and Faith Mussa also curtainraised the launch in Lilongwe.
Namadingo released two singles ‘Msati Mseke,’ and ‘Macheza,’ before launching the album.
His song ‘Msati Mseke,’ continues to enjoy airplay.
The 10-track album produced by Amos Mlolowa through his Active A Records also has songs such as ‘Mozimila,’ ‘Simsintha,’ and ‘Malawi,’ in which the musician has taken time to speak volume of the beauty of the Warm Heart of Africa.
In the song, the musician also takes time to remember the talents of such artists like late Evison Matafale, Vic Marley and Du Chisiza Jr.
