As one way of branding up something different and unique, Thoko Katimba, a Malawian gospel singer and songwriter, has stated for the first time that he is working on his first EP, which will have a number of collaborations.
Katimba’s collaborators in the project include Dr Ethel Kamwendo-Banda, Kondwani Chirwa, King James Phiri, Saint, and Malcelba. The song in the next EP that he has featured Avocado is a more spectacular idea.
“People may expect an Amapiano song featuring Avocado from Thoko Katimba to be released on June 1st.” “The song is called ‘Yehova,’ and it is the first one to be released,” he said.
“Yehova” will be followed by his official song, “Nzakutengerani Kuti,” which is set to be released in mid-June.
‘Nzakutengerani Kuti’ is one of the tracks from his yet-to-be-released album ‘Mwandiyankha.
Katimba last released new music in 2020, leaving his admirers wondering when he would return.
In an interview, the “Anaphiri” hitmaker promised his fans that everything is in order and that he will begin delivering music shortly.
“I’m ready to put out some new music.” “I’ve recorded five tracks for an EP that will be completed by the end of the year,” he stated.
Looking back on the positive response he received from his previous album, ‘Mukusangalatsa Ndani?’ the singer expressed his satisfaction with the candid reactions he received from his fans and followers.
And, without a doubt, he stated that the input has tremendously aided in the production of his new project, which has been improved with a number of changes.
However, the “Anaphiri” hitmaker made it plain that he is not boosting his expectations from fans because he is unsure how they will react to the changes.
Katimba acknowledged that it may take some time for some people to understand and accept the changes.
“My hopes are not very high because some people will be left behind as a result of the changes.” With the new adaptations, the younger generation will enjoy this music much more. “My expectation is that people would recognize that times have changed and that we cannot continue to do things the same way,” he added.
Despite the fact that times have changed, Katimba has attempted to keep his old musical style alive.
He has guaranteed his supporters that this new collaboration would produce quality work, and he is looking forward to reclaiming the Lost Glory since it will be released on time, unlike the previous album, which was delayed due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
