Her current album revolves around four themes: Fighting against HIV/AIDS, – the song “Lilia”. Reaching out to the needy, – “ Tiwafikire” is all about helping those in need. Love and Unity, – “Nyerere” explores the theme of oneness. Emotions- “Ngati wandikonda” is an appeal to a mystic lover, imploring (nicely) that lover to commit /prove their love.

“People still have that mindset where they feel women cannot achieve other things simply because they are female,” said Kadango.

“Let’s try to reach out to the old and vulnerable with the little that we have, we can make a difference,” said Ellen.

On the music scene, the artist said she has much respect for Ethel Kamwendo and Lucius Banda because of their ability to remain in the industry for a long time.
“Lucius Banda has been doing music for so long but you can see that he manages to remain on the spotlight after all these years.
