“Sam, I like your voice. Ndipo you are handsome” “Do you remember me from Standard 4?” “Sam Ngongole yanga ija mutipatsa man?” Those are some possible messages your inbox can attract when you are K14 million richer. Even those that despised his fashion sense, the girls that dumped him and the ones that rejected him wish they were Tia.
As flattering as the attention he is getting can be, the newly turned millionaire needs to focus on his next challenge. He needs to work hard not only on his voice, but his dressing and stage work too.
Big up to Airtel and Trace for the elegant event! The judges did a good job in their judgement. But it was Sam who even made it easier for them, giving a winning performance beyond reasonable doubt.
Whatever her personal reasons were, Sipe did well not contesting in this competition. Khwangwala wa mantha anafa ndi ukalamba that was a good move too. There is a difference between idling in a house full of cameras like lab rats in a box and showing your mantle as a star.
Next time Trace and Airtel organise a competition they should invite the kind of audience that will make the necessary noise for a TV audience not some lame politicians who care too much to spoil their suits if they shout. The audience was too quite to the point that an official from Trace Music slurred some F-words to liven the event.
On another note, this weekend all roads lead to Lilongwe for the Mumas second edition. Good luck to all deserving nominees. And to the musical antiquities nominated—well you remind us that the past was good.
Bravo organising team for remembering Michael Sauka the composer of the National Anthem. He is one musical legend. At least this time around not all legends were awarded.
Have a beautiful weekend!
