Gospel musician, Peter Kumilayi, will launch his second album Ndiyimabe Mwa Yesu at Blantyre Cultural Centre (BCC) on Sunday.
The artist said yesterday that the 12-track album recorded at Wakankhunda Multimedia by Dick Kankhunda has received an overwhelming response.
“I thank God for this project. People have supported me and warmly welcomed my album and I hope it will be the same during the launch,” Kumilayi said.
The launch will be spiced up by several artists among them King James Phiri, Peter Sambo, Limbani Simenti, Khama Khwiliro, Chiko Mulera, Neligo Womens Choir, Khwidzi CCAP Choir and Stevie Wazisomo Muliya.
“Apart from music, we will also have poetry by Sylvester Kalizang’oma and Joseph Madzedze and we also have
presidential mimickers in Atcheya and Aunt Geti,” he said.
His journey started in a choir at St Michaels and All Angels before moving on to perform with St Michaels Praise Team.
After performing with the choirs, Kumilayi decided to go solo releasing his debut album Zafika Povuta and now his second Ndiyimabe Mwa Yesu.
“The message that is in this album is basically encouraging Christians to remain faithful and stick to the Lord no matter what challenges they encounter. I have tried as much to give the songs a Malawian and African touch. I have fused in a lot of traditional dances,” Kumilayi said.
The title track Ndiyimabe Mwa Yesu is currently enjoying airplay in some of the local radio stations.
He said people should look forward to nothing but the best during the launch adding that he has experience for live acts.
