Award-winning urban musician Theo Thomson will be launching his new album titled White Elephant on June 5 at Robin’s Park in Blantyre.
But the big question is: is he going to reclaim his position with the album? Will the launch of the new album surpass the pomp of his 2010 Gypsy at Comesa Hall?
Elegant stage, bubbles coupled with energetic dancers and youthful audience characterised the night launch of Gypsy, setting a compelling career roadmap for Theo.
Meanwhile, the organising team of Theo’s new album launch has released the names of supporting artists which include Dali, DareDevils, Sangie, Bucci and Faith Mussa.
“We are more than ready to help Theo reclaim his position in the music industry with White Elephant,” said Theo’s manager Bongani Chikweba, adding that tickets for the show are priced at K1 000 per head.
Malawians have been given variety in the White Elephant album, and its pre-released songs such as Wings, Magic, Where Do We Go and Maybe Tomorrow have appealed to many fans.
The last promotional song off the yet to be launched album, Maybe Tomorrow, which features Faith Mussa, has been enjoying airplay and topping charts on radio stations.
Theo admits he went “all across the board” with this project which is a 15-track collection that deals with socially-conscious issues, love triangles and relationships. Artists featured on the album include Blakjak, Faith Mussa and Yesaya.
Theo is one of the country’s gifted R&B artists who rose to fame in 2010 with his debut album Gypsy.
Since then he has been making significant strides in music circles, including performing at 2009 Big Brother Revolution, winning the Best R&B Artist award in the first edition of the Malawi Music Awards in the year 2011.
And most recently he was chosen one of the judges for this year’s Airtel Trace Music Star competition which was won by Ruth Kulaisi Chikoleka.
Theo’s music has been extensively being featured on popular platforms such as Channel O and MTV. n
