Joram Nyirongo has come into the limelight with his EP called Tamuuze which he reports writing and recording in one week.
“This EP is a free gift from me to Malawians during this trying season. It’s a celebration of true love. The EP depicts the reality that love is not always rosy. It gets tough at times. But when all is said and done, true love is a beautiful thing,” Joram said over the phone.
“I hope Malawians welcome the music and share it for free. I have more projects lined up. For more, people can follow my facebook page *Joram Official*”. He said.

“There is a musical energy that drives one on. For me, I love our folk elements. And I fuse those sounds with rich modern sounds to create an exotic sound that should outlive us all,”Joram said.
He released his first album in 2012 called Some Serious Decisions which sold out on campus. The popular tune in those days was called “I Can Fly”.
The song took a soft pop genre and it was written to inspire his fans, friends and neighbors to dream and dream big.
