Having made headlines on social media with their track ‘Ambuye Ali Likiliki’, which is in their third album Ambuye Ali Likiliki, Chiyanjano Choir is now looking forward to hosting shows once the situation normalises as regards Covid.
Choir Mistress Coletter Master said Monday they will keep on practising as they gear up for performances.
“At the moment, we continue to practice, we believe in practice because this is what will keep us in shape. We would want people to watch our performances live. The pandemic has affected us since we cannot hold shows now,” Master said.
The group has trended on social media with the track ‘Ambuye Ali Likiliki’ and the words ‘Likiliki’ are being used to connect different scenarios.
Some players have even gone further to use the words ‘Likiliki’ for marketing their products and services.
And yesterday, social media was also trending with T-shirts written ‘Likiliki’.
“It is good that people have fallen in love with our song and we would want to build on this success. We are motivated and as a group our aim is to minister the word of God and, so, we urge people to listen to the message in the song,” Master said.
In the song, which is a remake of the title track of their debut album, the choir has shown rare rap skills through one of the members Anne Sululu Mwale, who works for Kanengo Puma rapping.
Despite not doing it perfectly, the group has been commended by many people for fusing rap into their track.
Based at Area 25 Pentecostal Church in Lilongwe, the choir, which has 15 members, started its mission in 2013.
Meanwhile, youthful artist Suffix has said he wants to help the group make another step in their gospel music arena.
“We are not planning any remix because I do not want people to think I am taking advantage of this. But as fellow Christians, I am looking at the end goal, they should not end here but keep up this mission,” the ‘Mkazi Wakumwamba’ artist said.
He has since initiated a challenge where people will win cash prizes.
“This is all aimed at helping them finalise everything about their album, there is an instrumental of hip hop and people can participate through joynathu.com and we will announce results on Good Friday,” he said.
Master could not comment much, saying the issue was being discussed with their director.
Suffix indicated that he has been in close contact with the choir and that they were on the same page.
The group’s song yesterday also trended in some of the local radio stations following Malawi National Football Team’s 2022 Africa Cup of Nations’ qualification after beating Uganda 1- 0.
