Malawi’s well-known gospel singer Wycliffe Chimwendoh will this month tour South Africa where he is expected to hold shows in Cape Town.
The musician, who has in his music career recorded seven successful albums, disclosed this to Nyasa Times, saying he will hold six shows during the Easter holidays.
“I would like to celebrate Easter with my fans in South Africa,” said the Blantyre-based ‘Yesu Afafaniza’ legendary vocalist.
In an social media interview with Nyasa Times, his South African manager, Fred Tembo, confirmed Chimwendoh’s trip as well as the arrangement of the concerts in the rainbow country’s second-most populous city .
“Yes that’s true, I’m the manager here in Cape Town, especially for this trip to perform live in April,” corroborated Tembo.
“He is my long time favourite gospel musician. Therefore, one day I was listening to his songs and I was so touched, thinking of those days when his songs were so hot and played almost every day on Malawi radios.
“With that I decided to contact him [and see] if it was possible to come and perform in Cape Town and he welcomed it. As am talking right now people are willing to see him performing live and everything is ready,” he said further.
Chimwendoh, who is also pastor, said he was so delighted to perform in South Africa for the first time.
“To perform in South Africa and Cape Town was my dream,” he blissfully said: “I’m also looking forward for another arrangement for Jozi [Johannesburg].
He claimed: “Lots of Malawians are ready [and] some have even tried to phone me to confirm whether it’s true that am coming to Cape Town during Easter [and] the answer is indeed yes.”
During the six concerts, Chimwendoh is expected to perform songs from all his seven albums, including the latest ‘Moyo’ released last OctoberFollow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
