After years of silence, singer Marco Sadik of Linda fame has returned with a single, Usalire.
The single is the first track from his forthcoming EP Ndabwerako EP. The song encourages people to remain strong even in tough times.
“The song talks about being strong and not giving up on life, reminding us that the problems we encounter shall come to pass,” he said.
The artist said life is a journey that takes people on a roller coaster of ups and downs.
Said Sadik: “No matter how big the challenges may be, we continue to be protected by the most high.”
He said at the core of the song is a message of encouraging people to treat each other kindly.
“The song simply motivates our daily lives. Some people just look down on others because they are doing well. But know this; the world is round like a ball, things change, tables turn. So, be careful how you treat others,” said Sadik.
The EP is set for release in November through different online platforms, according to the Kenya-based artist.
“The EP will have seven tracks. It will be available for streaming and download on major online platforms such as Apple music, Spotify, Deezer, Amazon and not forgetting our own malawimusic.com,” he explained.
The song is relatable to people considering the ongoing global pandemic of coronavirus.
“Beautiful song…reflective of the insecurities in Covid-19 times,” commented Kusali Kubwalo on a link to the song the musician posted on his Facebook account.
Sadik shot to fame in 2007 after releasing a famous hit, Linda from his debut album Umodzi.
He went on to perform at some of the big events in Malawi including Lake of Stars Music Festival before releasing a second album, Zanga in 2011.
He has been off the Malawi music scene for some time now as he moved to Nairobi where he has been for the past few years and is focusing on his personal life.
“Well, I’ve been busy with work really, and also just focusing on my family. But Covid-19 has affected businesses worldwide and I decided to use some of my free time to work on my new songs. It’s been long and it’s about time I came back. Ndabwerako,” he said.
