Barely two weeks after successfully launching his new project titled I Thought I Had Time in Lilongwe, hip-hop star Suffix will on Saturday fly the country’s flag, headlining Gospel Hip Hop Festival at Bread of Life in Zambia.

Suffix, who also captained a musicians’ team during a friendly match against Nyasa Big Bullets’ veteran players at Kamuzu Stadium in Blantyre on Monday, will headline the festival alongside United States of America Christian rapper Da Truth and Zambia’s Mag 44.

The ‘Mkazi wa Kumwamba’ maker leaves the country for the festival today.


“I am leaving on Thursday (today) so that we can do rehearsals and then there is also a workshop on Friday (tomorrow). This is another special moment for me, especially being a headliner alongside Da Truth and Mag44,” he said.

Suffix said it was amazing to see that people from Zambia recognise him in this way.

“As musicians, we need such opportunities because not only do you reach out to a different audience but also raise the profile of your country. I will be performing there as Suffix but from Malawi and, so, I am carrying Malawi’s flag,” he said.


Meanwhile, Suffix has said that the launch of I Thought I Had Time project was not about fill up but rather to give people an experience.

“There is a need to up our game as hip hop artists in terms of give people the best as regards live performances. This is what we need to focus on and not issues about attracting bigger audiences. Much as we need more support, we should also be looking at how we are executing our live performances,” he said.
