It is a dream, if dare to ask, for every artist to rise above national recognition, hit international market and earns world’s credit. To some, though, it remains an illusion and, for one Marco Sadik, it’s a trance he could sacrifice his soul for.
Sadik who rose to fame with hit-single Linda is leaving no stone unturned in quest to attain his utmost dream of becoming one of Africa’s internationally recognized superstars.
Well, he actually, is steps away from it as he currently transcends national boundaries sowing his roots internationally.
The artist studying music and classical guitar at Kenya Conservatoire of Music has released a single ‘Hizo ni zao’which, apart from thrusting him to intercontinental distinction, would determine if he, indeed, is striding on right path, though, many who came through such route either slumped or thrived but few got noticed to be considered luminaries.
Hizo ni zao (Izo ndi zao in Chichewa), a pasada beat, produced by one of the Kenyans finest producer RKay, is currently enjoying airplay on some of that country’s radio stations such as Ghetto radio and Home Boyz radio respectively.
The single, a fusion of Chichewa and Swahili, mirrors out another perspective of Marco Sadik, energized and unruffled while acting as his preface to the Kenyan music realm.
“The song talks about love. Love doesn’t look at what you did, who you were or who you went out with. Love is a present thing and it grows to the future and forever. Written in Chichewa and Swahili, a reflection of my homeland and Kenya where am based at the moment,” explained Sadik in an interview.
Sadik disclosed that he was not considering cutting a third album anytime soon and that will only be working on singles until he asserts himself into the new world of music through his new project ‘The Movement’.
“The movement is about love, being strong not letting go easily your goals, hope, enjoying life and being yourself in life without pretending. It’s a continuation of my music career from where it begun to another level. From my debut album Umodzi to my second album Zanga to this moment, every step and every day we’re moving ahead,” said Sadik.
Enlisted as a supporting artist for Afrology show at Safaricom house in Nairobi on June 9-first performance in Kenya-Sadik could not mince words on his desires to penetrate international market as he called on other local artists to never stop flying the country’s flag beyond national precincts.
“It has been my dream and it’s my focus now to make it to international level and I believe I will make it. It’s going to take a while but am patient enough to see my dream come true. And its time as Malawian we become proud of ourselves and support our home industry.
“Malawi has got a lot of talent and activities that needs our support. People should start talking positive things about Malawi, the good things that it has and that it can offer, the culture, the music, the friendly people, carry our flag with us wherever we go and put Malawi on the map, Malawians we need love,” he added.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
