Mangochi-based old-time musician, Francis ‘Dangoman’ Kadango, of the Manga Mabuleki fame is set to bounce back with his latest album, One Love, slated to be launched on November 10 at Paradise Motel in Blantyre.
One Love is Dangoman’s third album since his first album, Ndili Nanu, which was released in 2001 comprising the hit song Manga Mabuleki which became a darling to many Malawians.
The new album, whose three promotional songs Wankulu, Chetechete, and Nzeru which are enjoying radio airplay, is likely to bring Dangoman back in the cradle of fame.
“This is my total come back and I would like to assure my fans that Dangoman is back and back to stay this time,” said the artist in an interview on Tuesday.
He added that the Black Missionaries would support him during the launch of One Love on November 10 at Motel Paradise and later at M1 Centre Point in Lilongwe on November 12.
One Love is a 10 track Reggae Album. Apart from the three promotional songs already enjoying air play, other songs in the album include Mau, Zachikondi, Ukwati Oyera, Nthawi, Tanthauzireni and Kufuna Kwanu.
After the release of Ndili Nanu in 2001 which shot him to stardom, Dangoman took a low profile and released another album in 2009 called Maso Patsogolo which, however, did not do well.
Dangoman, with the help of Anjilu Fumulani of the Black Missionaries is now back with his third album which he believes will help him reclaim his lost glory.
“I have called this album One Love for a purpose. I would not have made it if it wasn’t for Anjilu Fumulani who hunted me down until he found me in 2015 and he offered me a hand for me to spring back with this album,” he highlighted.
Commenting on the development, Anjilu Fumulani said he and The Blacks were humbled to support Dangoman’s comeback.
Fumulani said he knew Dangoman when he was with Mlaka Maliro’s Maloto Vibrations and although the two were not very close at the time, Dangoman’s silence over the years after Manga Mabuleki was a cause for concern for the The Black Missionaries.
Dangoman has also worked and shared the stage with Lucius Banda and Zembani Band apart from being part of Mlaka Maliro’s Maloto Vibrations.
