The bank has also promised to give Chalamanda a retirement package after he entertained and educated Malawians and thousands across the globe through his top of the class music for several decades.

FDH Bank spokesperson Lorraine Lusinje confirmed the development to Nyasa Times.

“It is a package for him and it includes a grocery and being Banki Pakhomo agent,” Lusinje said.

Chalamanda, who despite sang for many years,  just like many musicians did not eat his sweat due to several factors including piracy.

However, he was able to sustain life and wear a smile when he was taken on board to be performing alongside the duo of ‘Edgar ndi Davis’ band.

The band is owned by two prominent lawyers Edgar Kachere and Davis Njobvu.

In his remarks, Njobvu expressed delightment with the kind gesture shown by FDH.

Njobvu and Kachere were the one’s who played a leading role alongside other individuals to ensure that Chalamanda accomplish his choldhood dream of visiting the United States of America (USA) as cited in his song Buffalo Soldier that he would one day love to visit America.

The song was produced several decades ago.

In his final remarks, Njobvu said: “Edgar ndi Davis Band wish to thank the directors and management of FDH Bank for the promise of a grocery and surprise retirement package to Giddes Chalamanda. We are happy to see that the corporate sponsor has come in to recognise Chalamanda, who we regard as a hero and a true legend”.

Meanwhile, Chalamanda has recorded a mash-up with musician of the moment Patience Namadingo who is also brand ambassador for FDH Bank.

Some of the songs in the mash-up include the famous ‘Liny’, ‘Napolo’, ‘Buffalo Soldier’, and ‘Che Meli.

FDH is advertising its products using Mr. Chalamanda’s name. FDH is reaping benefits from using that name. Just advocating for Mr. Chalamanda that his name and endorsement is worth more that MK2M.

Well done for good work but still, we just need further investigations about FDH bank. Good hearted people we know are there but our public funds devastators are to be brought to book after further investigations

The hinge of this story should have been Patience Namadingos role in bringing the strugles of Agide to light. How Edgar and Davis takes the lime light (atleast in this story) is a wonder!
