South Africa’s songstress Berita Khumalo will be in Malawi next week for her scheduled show on Sunday, 2 March, at Crossroads Hotel in Lilongwe. She will be sharing the stage with Malawi’s own Afro-Soul gospel singer Lawi.
The Eastern Cape-based singer is on an African tour after being crowned “queen” of African Pop for her debut album ‘Conquering Spirit’ at last year’s Metro FM Music Awards.
According to South Africa’s Dispatch online newspaper, the Zimbabwean born singer is expected to leave Johannesburg for Malawi next Tuesday.
“The tour is basically about putting the brand Berita out there and marketing my music, so I will be enjoying interacting with different crowds during my performances and learning and teaching something new everywhere I go.
“I just want to go around and find inspiration, work with other established musicians and leave a mark,” reported the Dispatch.
The 22-year-old, who is currently working on her next album, indicated that while in Malawi, she will be recording a song with a Malawian feel.
“In Malawi I will be recording another song and I want it to have that Malawian feel, hence we are going there. We are still in the early stages of the album and I have done some recording in East London and Johannesburg,” she is quoted as saying.
Berita features music legends Hugh Masekela and Zimbabwe’s Oliver Mtukudzi on one song on the upcoming album and has done a collaboration with Senegal’s Carlou D.
