After being silent for some time, the country’s Ivory Coast-based female reggae musician, Tamanyawaka Chavula, returns to the stage next month.
Tamanyawaka said Monday she has been out of the stage, hence coming out with concerts to connect with the fans.
The concerts will see her sharing the stage with, among others, Black Missionaries and other Chileka siblings.
The shows are scheduled for March 1 2019 at Motel Paradise in Blantyre and March 3 2019 at M1 Centre Point in Lilongwe.
Tamanyawaka said Monday from Ivory Coast she has been active working on songs but felt it wise to hold some concerts.
Despite being tagged Tamanyawaka’s Homecoming concerts, the artist said she is not coming for good but will be around for some time before going back.
“The main reason for the concerts are that it has been sometime since I connected with my fans in Malawi. So it is all about connection and I am looking forward to the concerts,” Tamanyawaka, said.
She also said that, after finding her roots in Chileka, where her father comes from, the concerts are a perfect homecoming party.
“I grew up not knowing my father but I finally connected with him four years ago. So it is a warm feeling to know my roots,” Tamanyawaka, said.
The female artist has three albums to her credit, namely Diso la Yehova, Ndadza Ndi Nyimbo and Reggae in Riddims.
“I have more singles coming out as well as a new album titled Reggalised. I also have a latest single ‘Kaya Kuwala’ a House of Riddim Production. Kuwala is a House of Riddim worldwide project. This is a riddim which involves top international reggae artists from different countries who sing in their local languages,” she said.
According to Tamanyawaka, the project has over 40 artists which include Anthony B and Perfect Giddiman.
“I am representing Malawi in the project; so, we are well represented,” the reggae musician said.
