Malawi’s gospel artist Mlaka Maliro has said he has no regrets for switching to gospel music.
Maliro turned to gospel in 2012, a move that attracted mixed reactions from fans.
“I received a warm welcome from gospel artists and fans. It was something that I did not expect when I made the decision. I don’t regret the decision I made and I am regretting why I had to take long with the decision.
“People talked a lot about my switching, but they don’t know that it was God’s plan that I should minister through music,” said Maliro.
Maliro has Hossana album as an entry point which was launched in June.
He has promised his fans more fireworks in 2013.
“I would like to promise my fans that they should expect the second album in June. I will start recording as early as possible. From the first album, I have learnt what people want in gospel. The coming album will be more powerful,” said Maliro
One of his fans, Jeston Chipote, said the artist will excel as he has transformed his form from secular to gospel.
“He is the same Mlaka we used to know. He has not lost his touch that made him a name in secular music,” said Chipote.
