Musician Noel Chikoleka, who goes by the moniker Phyzix has said music has helped him to inspire others and at the same time make positive contributions to the society.
Phyzix of the ‘Cholapitsa’ and ‘Mutipatsa’ fame has since called upon fellow artists to use the talent that God gave them and the platform to make a difference to the country such as promoting peace, love and harmony.
“As musicians or the creative industry we owe it to the people for the support they give us and all we need to do is give back in whatever way. The music we do, we target them so that they have fun but we should also aim at inspiring others to help so, that we collectively contribute to the social and economic development of Malawi,” Phyzix said.
He said they were more than musicians hence needed to do more. “We are custodians of power to mobilise change. We are a mouth piece of culture and we have direct access to people through our music. We are in their homes, business places, cars, phones and leisure centres. Our messages and influence goes beyond just entertainment,” Phyzix said.
The musician over the weekend partnered Galaxy Pharmaceuticals to donate blood collection tubes and soap worth K600,000 to Mangochi District Hospital.
Phyzix has embarked on a community impact initiative targeting schools and health centres as part of his ‘Kugawa Makofi’ nationwide tour where he is promoting his single ‘Kugawa Makofi’.
“We are praying for provision to donate something to a school or health centre in each district under the music tour across Malawi. The first three months is called ‘Kugawa Makofi’ tour and themes will be changing every three months but the same tour,” he said.
After the donation and interactions at the hospital, Phyzix went on to entertain people at Davido Lounge in Mangochi.
Meanwhile the musician has indicated that he will drop an EP next month titled Gamba Season where ‘Makofi’ is the lead single.
“Last year I came out with Solid which has songs such as ‘Yeye’ and ‘Ghetto Gospel’, and then we have the EP coming. I am always thankful for the support that people give me,” he said.
The artist, who inspired by the 2019 May 21 elections released ‘Kwathu’ and ‘Mutipatsa’, has also released singles ‘Michael Yekha’ and ‘Chinyamata Chikukoma
