After four years of silence on the music scene, gospel musician King James Phiri is back with new albums titled Chichitika and Yahweh.
The Mukumane ndi Moyo Wanga hitmaker said the albums will be launched on November 11 at Robin’s Park in Blantyre and were recorded at M Studios by Steve Mereka but mixed by producer Joseph Tembo at Groove Magic Studio.
Phiri said the break was to reflect on his work and prepare a new product that is relevant to the demands of his fans.
“It’s been sometime since I worked on an album but now my album is ready. For me, the four-year break has been a learning curve so that I come back a better artist,” he said.
The artist said he regards his music as a ministry; hence, his mission is to take the message to all.
Some of the songs in the albums are Yahweh, Chichitika, Achite Manyazi, Amen, Cover Me and Ndiyendereni.
The songs have a blend of traditional beats, according to Phiri.
Zodiak Broadcasting Station (ZBS) presenter Joseph Mwanoka described the albums as a demonstration of maturity, saying the songs will inspire many.
“He has shown growth and maturity. I am happy that his silence has paid off,” he said.
The albums feature artists such as Sam Maliza and Thoko Suya.
In 2012, Phiri debuted with Amayankha Yesu in which a track Dzuka Yona catapulted him to fame.
