The trend has usually been Malawi inviting foreign artists to perform in the country with none from the country being invited to perform outside the country.
But now the story seems to have gone the other way.
Foreign countries are beginning to in fall in love with Malawian talent.
Just recently, Mzuzu based gospel star Masudi Khonje was in Nairobi-Kenya. Two weeks down the line, another long time gospel star Wycliff Chimwendo has been invited to grace an Easter holiday gospel show in South Africa.
The shows have been organised by a Briton Allan Clarke, a group of Malawians based in South Africa and some South African entertainment groups according to Chimwendo.
Speaking in an email response from Cape Town, Chimwendo said the invitation is a great honour to his music career and said he is not taking the opportunity for granted.
He said, he will perform to the best of his capabilities and give the fans the real taste of Malawian gospel music.
“It is true that I have been invited as a guest artist in South Africa during Easter holiday shows and I will be performing in Western Cape area alongside some top South African gospel groups.
“This is a once in a lifetime opportunity and I am treating the honour seriously and as a chance to show the fun lovers here what is really in Malawi in terms of gospel,” said Chimwendo who promises to dish all the best songs from his seven albums.
Meanwhile, the artist has announced that after the shows he will return home with thrilling shows in Lilongwe and Mzuzu to launch his new album titled Moyo.
