“Kwa Mayi Chiwamba”, which has 33 poems, is Chiwamba’s second poetry release following the successful 2012 “Chanco Munthawi Yanga” which comprised 31 poems, among them the popular “Mudzafa Imfa Yowawa”, “Kwainu Mahope Anga Ndilira” and “Adzaima Penapake”.

Some of the sensational compositions making the new project are “Pampanda”, “Malemuwa ndi Ndalama Zanga”, “BP Yanga Yakwera”, “Takumana pano ndi pa Msika” and “Kukhala Mmalawi ndikulimba Mtima”, which are already enjoying massive airplay on different radios across the country.

“The album is dedicated to my mum for her love and care on me and my siblings, thus the title ‘Kwa Mayi Chiwamba’. It has everyday life experiences as its inspiration as it talks about daily experiences,” explains Chiwamba.

The 25-year-old Lilongwe based poet adds “the message is from God to his people, from the poor to non-novernmental organisations and government, from an ordinary person to another”.

“Kwa Mayi Chiwamba” project was recorded at Audio Clinic Studios in Blantyre by Uncle Layi and Marvin Hanke. The CDs will be sold for the first time during the Blantyre launch.

After unveiling the album in Blantyre, Chiwamba is expected to take the launch to Lilongwe on Sunday the 15th of November, 2015 and the venue is Capital City Motel.

At the Blantyre launch, guest artists will include musician Giddes Chalamanda, the Chichiri Dancing Troupe as well as poets Mada Nyambo, Raphael Sitima, Sylvester Kalizang’oma, Mr. Malawi and Atcheya, among others.

In Lilongwe, musician Lulu will join Mtendere Dancing Troupe, Mada Nyambo, Josephy Madzedze, Hudson Chamasowa, Mr Malawi, Aunt Gate and others to support Robert Chiwamba during his launch.

Robert Chiwamba has quickly established himself on Malawi’s poetry landscape commanding a large following from both the youth and adults.

He can write, arrange and recite in both English and Chichewa, although he has specialized and is mostly known for his native Chichewa verses for easy understanding and communication of messages carried in his poems, considering Malawi’s high illiteracy levels.

    Tonse tikudziwa kuti chilungamo chimawawa koma Dokotala Mtabeni walankhula zoona,it was the same with our musicians (especially gospel musicians) they used to play their CDS in the name of live performance. Malawians quickly realised this raw deal and start asking for live performance. Now things have changed for better.

    Dokotala Mtabeni, nsanjeyo uphulika nayo mtima. Even the great Okoma Atani Malunga recites from a notebook. Where are you from? Cant you for once appreciate when someone has done well? Amalawi tonse tikakhale opepela koma iweyo? Feel ashamed of yourself. Iweyo poti umatha, panga ndakatulo zakozo tione ngat anthu tizikonde. Stupid idiot!!!

  20. Dokotala Mtabeni says:

    Did you just say RICITE in your last paragraph? No plz,To ricite means from the heart.The picture is clearly showing that this poor boy is reading from an exercise book.So you better stop call him mlakatuli,Kutereku anthu mukamati mukukaonera ndakatulo mumakhala mukukaonera anthu akuwerenga kuchokera mmakope?
    Ndakiya nanu kwambili inu the so called alakatuli
