Remember the youngster behind hits Tabwela and Ukadutsa off his debut album Breakpoint? Malawi’s urban artist behind Baseline Studios in Namiwawa, Blantyre? Well, Sonyezo Houston Kandoje, popularly known as Sonye in the music circles, is back in town with a festive single, Konko.
The song revolves around the concept “ndipita konko kuli chintibu” which loosely translates to ‘I am going wherever there is a boombox.
“The song comes after a six-month hiatus. I took a study break from music to concentrate on my education at the Malawi College of Accountancy,” said Sonye who made it to the top of the Malawi music charts.
The brains behind production at his Baseline Studios also brightened up the last holiday season with his smash hit Kwacha which took the airwaves and clubs by storm.
“The song talks about wherever there is fun, things happen. As we know the festive season is full of happy moments, so I had to do a song which relates to that feeling we all have when we want to go somewhere and have fun. It is meant to remind my fans that I am still around despite my academic commitments. This track is set to move people on dance floors and events all over the country, following on the heels of Kwacha,” said Sonye in an interview.
“What inspired me to do this song was that it’s been a while since I put any new music out there and I just had to bless those people who love my music with a Christmas gift. About being back in the music industry full time, am not really sure but my presence will still be there. As a producer, I will still be doing projects for other artists,” he explained.
