Gig-goers in the commercial capital Blantyre should brace for a mind blowing performance by afro-pop musician Dan Lu who launches his album Sorry this weekend at Robins Park, his manager Shadreck Chikoti has said.
The It’s Part of Life composer, Chikoti said, has ably tried to bundle together issues in tandem with the current socio-eco-political goings-on in a manner that is not only thrilling but also immeasurably creative.
The album is a great testimony to how much Dan has come of age, Chikoti noted.
He added: “The issues being addressed are diverse and cut across the ages.”
Sorry, the title track, is for example, a mature and thought provoking song about forgiveness. It is basically asking the question on the basis of forgiveness and love in a relationship.
In his other song, Holy Ghost Fire – that has gone viral on Malawi’s online music portal www.malawi-music.com – Dan takes a new twist as he aptly takes on the questions of life to the creator himself.
“Many will identify with the song as it touches on the joys and pains of Malawian life,” opined Chikoti.
According to Chikoti, Dan Lu’s maturity is also evident in his Sorry video which he just released a few weeks ago.
Charges at the door for Friday’s show, which begins at exactly 8 pm, will be K1 500.
On Sunday Dan Lu will launch his album in the Central Region at the Lilongwe Golf Club from 1 30 pm.
