Sungi K no more


The creative industry on Monday lost one of its key members Sungani Kundwe Mpando, who was commonly known as Sungi K.

Sungi K, who was based in South Africa, died on Monday after being injured by an elephant.

According to information from the Christian Artists Network Association (Cana), the artist was driving down to Malawi from Cape Town, South Africa.


“They stopped at a Game Park in Botswana and were taking pictures when an angry elephant charged on our brother and gored him. He was taken to hospital where they operated on him. He succumbed to internal injuries later today [Monday] after the operation,” said musician Rudo Mkukupha Chakwera.

She further said that Sungi K’s wife and children travelled separately by bus.

Sungi K’s death has shocked the creative industry.


“We at Zembani are shocked by the news of the sudden death of Sungi K. He was a great fan and a serious supporter for Zembani Band. We cry with the family and we mourn with all those who knew him,” musician Lucius Banda said.

Producer Lemekeza Phiri said Sungi K used to worship at ICA and was a member of the Praise Team and that he had his own solo album.

Gospel musician Allan Chirwa said he knew Sungi when he was leading a group called Echoes of Praise at Assemblies of God Youth Camp meeting.

“I was leading Rivers of Praise and his crew was known by the song Lapani Machimo. He was friendly and God loving,” said the artist behind the track Ebenezer.

Meanwhile, the body of Sungi K will be repatriated this week and that he will be buried at Bilira in Ntcheu.

Sungi K, who was also known as Mr Next President was born on February 7, 1981.

He is survived by a wife and two children.
