Malawi’s top artist who switched from secular music to gospel, Mlaka Maliro delighted the crowds at Miss Malawi UK show in Birmingham, England last Saturday when he took on stage to perform some of his songs.
Mlaka had just jetted in from Malawi same day but shook off his jet lag to thrill the crowds with his old hit songs including Chikhwaya cha Mangochi.
Many patrons, especially women jumped on stage to mob Mlaka into dancing and a celebrity set of photo opportunity.
The artist was swammed with fans, mostly taking selfies for Facebook and other social media platform but he kept singing.
Organisers Henry Dokowe Ngwira and Kondi Bowoyeke Munthali said Mlaka will have a full concernt on dates and venue to be announced later.
“This was a warm up, there will be a live band show for Mlaka,” said the organisers.
Speaking to Nyasa Times, Mlaka said he was “happy” to be in UK and promised to give “good performance” at his concert.
Mlaka has however maintained the same beat that made Dzanja Lalemba a bestseller 14 years ago.
