Skeffa Chimoto grows fan base in Zambia


Lilongwe-based musician Skeffa Chimoto is back from Zambia where he flew the country’s flag at an agriculture and commercial show.

Skeffa jetted back home on Tuesday from the annual event which started on July 27 and ended on August 1.

This was the fourth time for Skeffa to perform at this yearly trade event where apart from artists’ performances brings together several exhibitors from all over the Southern and Eastern Africa.


“I am excited to have represented Malawi once again and my band Real Sounds. I should also say that we have surely grown our fan base looking at the massive support we received,” he said.

He said once again he shared the stage with several artists from other countries and that he also had a chance of interacting with some of them as well as sharing notes.

“Congolese musician Koffi Olomide was also supposed to perform but he was removed following the incident which happened in Kenya and was replaced with another artist. But it is important to attend these shows because you learn a lot. I was actually surprised with the way people cheered in all the three shows we had,” said Skeffa.


Skeffa also revealed that two companies have shown interest in making him brand ambassador.

“I will be going back to Zambia to finalise the deals and sign contracts if all goes well but they are impressed with me as well as my songs. The companies are Trade Kings and Astro Mobile,” he said.

The musician, who is also an ambassador of other companies in the country, said the two companies explained to him that they love his music.

“They actually like the fact that I love doing songs that always advocate for peace and with elections coming up in Zambia they feel I could play a role in spreading messages of peace,” he said.

The artist famed for hits such as Nabola Moyo and Tisawanyoze said he was thankful to God for the talent.

“I just want to thank God for the talent and as a musician, I will continue doing my best in coming up with songs that help bring about change,” said the former Health Education Band member.
