Heart Beats member Ndizi Machilika has announced a new chapter of her music career.
Machilika who has changed her name to Talitha Cumi says she is going solo and her first album will be out by the end of the month.
“I am doing solo music now and my first album is called Sizinali Zopweka. It is ready for the release,” she says.
The artist revealed that she fell off with her counterpart AngellaMalamulo just after the launch of their first album Full Package in 2010.
“I can say I have been silent because we have not been working as a group. I cannot say anything on why we parted ways, but the fact is that I have a future in my career and I have decided to work as an individual,” she says.
Machilika says her new chapter in music is different from before. She says she is now singing more about God, using danceable beats.
She adds that the decision to praise the Lord has come after observing the success she has achieved and the battle she has won, and she attributes all this to God’s grace.
Produced at Nyimbo Music records, Sizinali Zopweka carries hits like Ineyo, Mbuyewanga, Dzukani Tipemphere and Don’t Remind Me. The artist says the debut is all about encouraging people to believe in God and not to give up when faced with troubles.
In other projects, Machilika says she has started working on a movie project.
“I am broadening my career and I am into movies. I have a group called Hurricane Lamp Entertainment and we are already working on the project to release our first movie,” says Machilika who also trained with African Movie Academy’s Award (Amaa) film-in-a- box recently.
According to her the movie titled Moyo tells the story of a little girl who was raped by her uncle in the village and thought of escaping to town where she met several tragedies. After a long painful life, the girl met well-wishers who adopted her and sent her back to school.
It is, however, not known when the movie will be released.
