Drummer Amos Mlolowa recently cheated death after he was involved in a road accident in Ntcheu.
The accident happened at Kachipeya near Lizulu on Monday last week.
The drummer plays with Mafilika and Mizu bands.
He has worked with some of the top names in Malawian music culture, including Thocco Katimba, Wambali Mkandawire and Lucius Banda.
Two years ago, the 27-year-old survivor produced Black Missionaries’ Kuimba 10 album at his Active A Studio in Ndirande, Blantyre.
In an interview, Mlolowa praised God for saving his life.
“I was driving with a friend to Lilongwe. I think the car had a fault and I suspect some part broke off. Suddenly, I realised the steering could not move and the tyres were pointing in different directions.”
The vehicle smashed into a rock before it overturned about three times. It later perched on a tree trunk. The friend was the first to come out of the car while witnesses flocked in.
The two were treated at a nearby health centre in Dedza before being referred to Kamuzu Central Hospital where they were treated as outpatients.
The drummer started his career with small bands in Ndirande before joining the legendary Saleta Phiri’s AB Sounds. He later joined the Burning Sound of Thibela fame. n
