The coming of Nigerian award-winning artist, Jimmy Johnson, popularly known as Jimmy D Psalmist, to perform in the country recently has resulted in a working relationship between the visiting artist and local musician Wendy Harawa.
The two artists met in Lilongwe at Mathumela Studio owned by artist Lawrence Khwisa, popularly known as Lulu, to collaborate on a song called Chisomo.
“We’ve always wanted to do a collaboration, but I understand God’s time is the best. Perhaps this is the start of great things in my career. And it is not easy to work together with an artist of such calibre,” said Wendy.
The Ambuye Ndiwonetseni star added that they have also shot a video for the same.
“It is our sincere hope that the song will change the face of the local music industry,” she said.
The Mighty Man of War hitmaker posted on his Instagram page: “Anticipate Chisomo Wendy Harawa featuring Jimmy D Psalmist. I’m sure it will bless you, so I was given a name in Malawi … Chisomo meaning Grace. I decided to write a song on it and I ministered with Malawians’ own Wendy Harawa @wendiyharawa. Wrote and produced last night and the video done this morning”.
According to Harawa, who was part of the organising team to bring the celebrated musician, the song is being mixed by Lulu.
The artist performed at Bingu International Convention Centre (Bicc) in Lilongwe and some of his famous songs include Consuming Fire, I Surrender, Great And Mighty, Power of the Blood, among others.
His performance came barely a week after the same venue also hosted renowned South African gospel musician Reverend Benjamin Dube.
The Nigerian gospel musician shared the stage with The Great Angels Choir and Ethel Kamwendo Banda. The musician hails from Akwa Ibom State, Nigeria. n
