Former Musicians Union of Malawi President Reverend Chimwemwe Mhango said has said that the funeral service for Mkandawire will take place at Robins Park in Blantyre.

One of the country’s greatest musicians  and that will be laid to rest at HHI Cemetery in Blantyre on Monday, according to Mhango.

Mkandawire died in Zambia after taking a long sabbatical leave in music.

He was born in 1974, from Nkombezi village in Rumphi district. The artist rose to stardom in the early 2000’s after releasing albums such as Ulendo.

Lately he went into a music hibernation only to resurface last year with news that he had signed for Major 1 Records which is owned by Prophet Shephard Bushiri.

His relatives said he was about to release a gospel album at the time of his death.

Please tell us more about the deceased. He indeed went silent over the years. Ku Zambia amapangako chani? Was he into music still? Nanga za Major 1 zikuti bwanji? Does he have a music studio, this major 1? Nanga what led to George’s demise? Was he unwell or sudden death?

I remember to have read in the paper that our disgraced rev Chimwemwe Mhango resigned from the board of musicians association of Malawi. Is he back?
