According to the 35-year-old newly converted singer, the show comes amid the recording of his debut gospel album entirely sponsored by Prophet Shepherd Bushiri of the Enlightened Christian Gathering (ECG) in Mzuzu.
â€œThis is a great moment and it comes exactly the week I am scheduled to start recording my first song at Ralph Chingâ€™ambaâ€™s Ralph Records. Other songs will be done at Joseph Temboâ€™s Groove Magic Studio,â€ said Mlaka on Wednesday.
Last week, Great Angels music director Ephraim Zonda said it was a blessing to have the Dzanja Lalemba star alongside a familiar castâ€“Peter Sambo, George Mkandawire, Peter Mlangeni and Kamuzu Barracks Singersâ€“during the unveiling of their third album at Sheaffer Marque in Lilongwe.
And Mlaka, a one-time bestseller, said it feels awesome to cross the thin line between secular vibes and the real â€œgospelâ€ scene after three decades of mixing biblical tales with secular lyrics.
Looking back, he feels it was vanity to invest all his talent in semi-gospel tunes just for his fame and dime, although it felt great to do so.
Looking forward, he said he is happier than ever to sing for God and his son, Jesus.
â€œI used to sing gospel from the head, but I have found deeper meaning because the songs well from the depth of my heart,â€ said Maliro.
He is planning to unveil the new album in July.
