From 10 am, Zodiak has been playing solemn in remembrance of Nyanga, adorably known as Izeki in comedy circles by his huge following in Malawi.

He died o Sunday after a two year battle of a number  of diseases including Tuberculosis and his wish for foreign treatment was turned down on several occasions by the government.

Zodiak said on its news Nyanga, also known as Alufeyo in drama, was a revered and talented comedian and dramatist, words echoed by his long time stand up comedy partner Eric Mabedi who formed a wonderful duo of Izeki ndi Jakobo.

“He was a great stage stand up comedian, he was also a great actor, he was a great playwright and he was a great teacher,” said Mabedi.

Mabedi said he knew Nyanga in the 1984 in Ndirande, Blantyre where he was introduced by another great fallen playwright and producer Charles Severe.

He said they hooked up in comedy until Sunday when Nyanga passed on.

Malawians on Facebook have accused President Peter Mutharika for his failure to cancel his northern region official engagements to attend to the burial of Nyanga, revered comedian and loved by many Malawians.

Izeki entertained the nation and was more loved.
