It’s the return of award winning veteran music icon Ben Micheal Mankhamba who has wasted no time but to give corrupt government officials and football administrators a dose of their own medicine.
Mankhamba last released a song a couple of years ago when dished out a hit-single Kadona, an afro-pop tune that swiftly claimed spots in most music charts while it enjoyed airplay in most radio stations across the country.
And this time around Mankhamba, who is planning of rediscovering his music journey with ‘BenAgainNyatwa Tour’ has released a single Benyatwa, vividly pronouncing a comeback to reclaim his old glory.
“Benyatwa” has been recorded at Audio Clinic Studio in Naperi Blantyre in an eight-hour session, and highlights some of the social and economic issues affecting the country including poor football administration and the continued blackouts.
The Kuche Kuche Music Award six times winner, Mankhamba is expected to embark on country tour and surely his fans will be excited with the news if the latest single is anything to go by, and is being managed by undisclosed company.
“I am excited with the management, no shortcuts. Let’s wait and see but I can assure you. This is what every artist needs in this profession,” expressed his delight Mankhamba.
Mankhamba the Alonda and Moyo Wantauni hits maker has for years been modernizing Malawian traditional music with a tender but creative touch.
Years ago Mankhamba told Nyasa Times that he stopped holding music shows due to poor response from the public.
“We are in a generation that does not buy music, and is selective in terms of patronizing performances. I have therefore put my main focus on working with corporate world,” he disclosed then.
Mankhamba has eight albums to his credit, which include Moyo Wantauni, Anajere, Street Vendor, Tigube, Alonda and Press Conference.
