In his efforts to reconnect with mother Malawi after a 17 year long stay in the US, musician Tiwonge Mhango over the weekend stormed Bwaila in Lilongwe to plant trees.

“It’s sad to see our country going bare, we need to be environmental friendly people by among other things making tree planting exercises as a habit,” said Mhango who received a warm welcome by locals in Bwaila.

According to Tiwonge, his coming to Malawi makes him appreciate the roots of his life adding that he would love to establish a Tiwonge Mhango Foundation in the near future.

Among other things, the community of Bwaila gave Tiwonge a treat of traditional dances like Gulewankulu.

“There’s more happiness in giving than in receiving. I want to share with others and perhaps make their lives better. I would like to make life full of meaning, purpose and impact to others,” he explained.

The singer-cum-business person has expressed interest to promote Malawi music and he has since cut a single ‘Mbuye’ with charismatic rappper Young Kay and is available for download on www.malawi-music.com

At least the first thing on his mind after getting a green card was to go home and make a difference. What have you done to help Malawi Mr/Ms Counter Attack? #hater

Why does it matter when he got a green card? As soon as he got it he went back home to make a difference. He was still making music in the USA and he will continue to do. Counter Attack you sound like a bitter ex wife.

I don’t understand why in this day en age Malawians still look at someone who has lived abroad as someone to be accorded great respect and praise. This guy has lived away from home for so long because he did not have the necessary documents to assure his return to the U.S. Now he just got his Green Card, he wants to make everyone believe he was too busy to travel back to Malawi. Yes, he is a good guy, but let’s pump the breaks for a moment and stop the worship.
