Afro Pop Songstress Temwah formerly known as Spotless C has released her first banger “Malawi ( Zakwathu )”, a few months after signing to Lush Africa Entertainment.
Produced by Tricky Beats, “Malawi (Zakwathu)” was released on Monday 26 th June 2017 and is currently playing on local radio stations across Malawi. It is also available for downloads on Malawi-Music.com
The song explores Malawi’s traditional dances, food, languages and dressing among other cultural practices.
In the first verse, she sings, “…Timadya mkhwani wa matimati, kuphika thobwa la khatikhati/Ku Malawi, Manganje, yamba kuvina usathawe/Ku Nsanje, mwa chaje, chi Sena chiyankhulo chake/Tikafuna Utaka, sitichita kusaka, Lake Malawi is blessed with some beautiful fish.”
“Malawi” also tackles themes of hard work and patriotism. “Udya bwanji osalima? Ulemela bwanji osavepa? Nsanje, mtima osadekha kukhala ndi anthu nzosatheka” she sings in the second verse.
Lush Africa’s Lorraine Mopiwa Kljajić says the re-branded Temwah will now pursue Afro pop music as a way to cross borders, putting her in a position to collaborate with international artists.
“Temwah approached us last year in November to manage her. We signed her in January this year. She has been working hard in studio experimenting different sounds because we want her to be different.
“Malawi” is her first song under Lush Africa,” Lorraine discloses.
Real name, Temwa Gondwe, the songstress started singing when she was young in church but recorded her first song in 2009. She is inspired by Lauren Hill.
