All manner of happiness, peace, anguish and many other feelings have come handy for Lilongwe-based gospel artist, Alinafe Mwambira, who took two years out to enjoy and, where the need arose, endure all these.
But time to enjoy, or endure, alone is over, and Mwambira has decided to share her experiences with her fans and Malawians at large through the single ‘Mwaonera Ndani’.
From the look of things, the single has sailed directly into public favour, airplay on public and private media, social media and other platforms is anything to go by.
But the best is to come as, in an interview on Monday; Mwambira described the single as a “mere appetiser”, in the sense that it is the biblical John preparing the way for the big one.
Mwambira is working on a new album with help from Khumbo Kaliwo and Joseph Tembo of Groove Magic studios.
The album is set for release at the end of July.
“I am working on my fourth album to be released probably by the end of July. The album is titled Bail Me Out and I believe it will transform many lives as it carries soul touching songs,” Mwambira said.
Some of the songs in the album include ‘Mwaonera Ndani’, ‘No Li f e Wi thout J es u s ’ , ‘Samasintha’, ‘Wamkulu’ and ‘Ndiyemweyu’.
The fourth-year Bachelor of Arts student at Mzuzu University also addressed the issue of her absence, saying she has been concentrating on studies.
“That said, I have time to continue working on my album now,” Mwambira said.
‘Mwaonera Ndani’’ rams into wolves in sheep skin for, without beating about the bush, it criticises those who claim to be God-fearing but act contrary to God’s will.
“People should expect more touching songs from me; songs that will keep them close to God,” Mwandira said.
Mwambira came into the limelight after releasing her debut album, Zabisika in 2004, followed by Akhala Nane in 2008 and Mwai Wachiwiri in 2015.
