Musician Patience Namadingo continues to drop singles from his upcoming album Ya Kwa Symon with a new song Ng’wi Ng’wi released on Friday followed by a video on Saturday.
Namadingo plans to drop his new album in November and has so far released two singles Vinyo and Ng’wi Ng’wi.
In the new song, Namadingo warns men who are unfaithful and abusive to their women, saying one day they will be hopeless when the abused woman decides to walk away for good.
“Usadzadandaule, ukadzamupeza wapita, wapita,
Iwe udzalira ngati njuchi…Ng’wi Ng’wi, Ng’wi..
Iwe mzanga usadzadandaule ukadzampeza wapita mkaziyu. Wapita aaah” goes the song in part.
Namadingo said in an interview: “The song’s title Ng’wi Ng’wi is taken from the sound that bees make when they fly and when I was writing this song, I thought of a funny sound that one can make when crying. I imagined a man crying and making that sound. That is how I came up with the title Ng’wi Ng’wi.”
Namadingo, who is under Elation Entertainment, said he will release his full album on November 30.
“It is beautiful that Malawians have liked the song and video. After this single, we are releasing another single on October 1,” he said.
The artist said he will release five songs and videos before releasing a full album which will have 15 songs.
Commenting on his single Vinyo, released earlier, Namadingo said he is proud of the song which many thought was about promoting beer following his association with Castel Malawi.
“But in the end, people realised that Vinyo is basically a gospel song and it received rave reviews.
“Malawians are coming of age and are reacting maturely and soberly to music which is a good thing,” he said.
The launch of Namadingo’s new album will take place at Bingu International Convention Centre (Bicc) while a venue is yet to be identified for the Blantyre launch.
Reactions to Ng’wi Ng’wi, which is basically a secular song, were generally positive on social media.
Commenting on the entertainment Mikozi Facebook page, Kondwani Anthony wrote: “Nice song. This guy is so talented.”
Mayors Omars wrote: “What a great tune. This guy is talented. Big up Namadingo. The guy is talented. Everything is dope; from sound to video production.”
However, a few felt the song is a departure from the gospel tunes they have known Namadingo for. “Nice tune but this guy must just tell us that he is no longer doing gospel music,” wrote Christopher Matchemba.
