Like a super ninja in a movie, gospel musician Peter Sambo can disappear and reappear on the music scene.
Sambo was introduced on the country’s music scene with his 2002 production of Pa Calvary.
Then he went silent for two years only to return with a bang in 2004 with Tachilowa Chaka China.
In 2009 he released Ndife Nyali which compensated his five-year silence.
And when fans began to debate about his music demise, Sambo resurfaced with powerful Monga Mofunira in 2012.
Now, Sambo has taken four years without releasing an album. So, what is the way forward?
Has his music career died a natural death?
“So far, I have come up with the Best of Peter Sambo titled Peter Sambo, The Man And The Music,” Sambo said in an interview.
He said the latest project has come in a form of a DVD which has been shot in South Africa, Malawi and Botswana. Sambo described the DVD as reflection of his life not a mere music project.
“It’s more than a DVD projects that you know. When people will watch the Best of Peter Sambo, The Man and The Music, they will also meet the man behind the music: Peter as a strong Christian, a father, a friend, apologetic and unapologetic when it comes to sharing the gospel,” said the musician.
The DVD will be released on June 1.
Sambo has also had a share of controversies in the past, but he defends his honour: “I am not controversial. I am just more famous than the devil who doesn’t like me.”
Sambo has also worked with different media houses in the country and Prophet Shepherd Bushiri’s Enlightened Christian Gathering (ECG).
But he says he is not a globetrotter: “I am a genius, whatever I do is a pure touch of excellence. The grace of God on me is just overdose. Shepherd Bushiri employed me to help him build a great image and I did him justice by the look of things—that proves me to be extremely good at making people.”
Sambo said he is upgrading musically, academically and spiritually and ready to offer his fans improved work.
“People are tired of listening to mediocre music. My fellow artists such as Patience Namadingo, Lawi and Faith Mussa have upped their game. And I am also set to take Malawi music across the borders and bring the world to Malawi and Malawi to the world with Jesus.”
