“I took an interest in music in 2003 after watching musician and friend, the late James Kanjero, who sadly passed away travelling back from a gospel performance in Lilongwe.

 

James Kanjero gave me the courage to begin music after I saw him play bass guitar, so I begin by playing in my church band. In the early days I was scared of the bass as I wasn’t sure of what happens when you are playing on the stage, but little by little I started practicing more and it was sounding better.

 

Since then I have played with big gospel artists here in Malawi such as Frank Chimpanzi. I have kept practicing and my bass skills have grown and I bought my own bass guitar. Today I am the band leader in our praise team and also perform in Mizu Band.”
