New kid on the block, Eddie has released his latest single titled Elube, produced by Dumisani Moyo aka The Blage.
The Blantyre-based R&B-Soul singer is back on the airwaves with the new track after he last released “I Wanna Be With You” in January.
The song is taken from his upcoming album titled “Swingers”, slated for release later in the year and is expected to be on Malawi-music.com for download.
“Elube has this village setting talking about this girl that is incomparable, she is unique and the guy can’t help imagining how bad things would be if not being loved by her,” Eddie explained the meaning behind his new song.
He further told Nyasa Showbiz he will release a couple of singles before dropping his debut album.
“I am currently working on two singles which should be out mid or end April. One song is titled ‘Focus On You’ and the other one ‘Dear Ex’, people should be on the lookout,” he said.
The singer, famed for the single “Napepe”, also confirmed he will be re-recording the song as well as “Lero si Friday”.
Eddie is a singer-songwriter who was born Edwin Mhone in Nkhata-Bay and grew up in Mzuzu, northern Malawi. He is currently studying Accounting (ICAM) at PACT College – Blantyre campus.
He grew up listening to the likes of Babyface, Usher Raymond, Michael Bolton and El DeBarge, among other artists who inspired him into music.
He says growing up as a kid, he always loved music, mostly the mood and emotion – how it affects the soul. “I always had it in my heart that I should be able to do that someday”.
Eddie kicked off his music career in 2011 as he recorded his first song titled “Be There For You”, which was never released. In 2013, after he recorded and released “Napepe” and “Lero si Friday”, Eddie’s career had a turning point as he earned his first radio play on MIJ FM through Slessor Munthali, then MBC Radio 2’s David Kapezi.
His fourth recording was “I Wanna Be With You”, a song that came out in January, 2014, before meeting Kimpho Hastings Loka, his manager.
Eddie’s compositions are mostly inspired by nature and what he goes through in everyday life. Despite being an R&B singer, the artist is diverse in style and delivery.
He says: “Am not the type of artist that sticks to one genre, so fusion makes me tick. Mostly it’s the environment, the mood and everyday life.”-Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
