Budding musicians in the country have appealed to the music fraternity and established artists to uplift their career by, among other things, patronising their events and creating a platform for them to prepare a strong foundation for tommorrow’s vibrant music industry.
Speaking in random interviews recently, during a live concert organised by M1 Centre Point, the young artists promised to do their part in as far as good music production is concerned.
“Young artists in the country are doomed to fail if Malawians continue to shun them. We need their support for us to grow,” said Katelele Ching’oma, one of the budding artists.
He added that without support, musicians cannot compose, produce and sell their music.
“We also want to grow like the likes of Lucius Banda. But the truth of the matter is that Lucius did not just fall from heaven to be where he is today. It took support from people to make him. So, young artists need the same support and we are ready to conquer,” said Ching’oma of Anakukana Kale fame.
On the other hand, old-timer Charles Nsaku invited music lovers to join hands in mourning the departed Galaxy FM broadcaster and DJ Kennedy Mkombezi.
Charles Nsaku said Mkombezi played a pivotal role in promoting the country’s entertainment industry, including uplifting talent through various radio programmes and shows.
One of the managers at M1 Centre Point, a Mr. Kachepa, said he is committed to promoting artistry in the country, including upcoming talents like Ching’oma. n
