Malawi’s renowned reggae artist Sally Nyundo has tipped Mafunyeta to dominate the music industry “for ages to come”.
He has since called the reggae/dancehall artist as one of the best local artists in live performances.
Nyundo said this Sunday at the end of a four-day series of shows he organised in entertainment joints in the capital, Lilongwe.
The shows, dubbed One Love 2013 Respect Festival, were held in honour of the fallen Jamaican reggae legend Bob Marley.
Nyundo engaged Apatsa Kwilimbe and Mafunyeta to spice up the commemoration with live performances.
However, Mafunyeta’s performance climaxed the festival last Saturday at Chameleon in the capital city.
“One just has to look at the way he commands his audience; the way he interacts with his audience without necessarily departing from his business on stage. That is a genius of some sort. I think the boy is going to reach great heights in music,” Nyundo said.
“It should, therefore, be something inspiring to the younger generations. He read his audience well.”
Lilongwe-based rap star, Third Eye, also made a surprise appearance on stage at the Chameleon show where he played several songs.
The festival ended last Sunday with a family day at The Sanctuary Lodge where Nyundo and Kwilimbe also performed.
