Musician Joy Mawindo has said the novel COVI-19 pandemic should bring people closer to Christ as a way out.
He was speaking prior to the release of his new music video 'NdiYesu Yemweyo'
"The message is about who we are, what we are, it's not about the qualifications, not about the work you are not doing, having life today; there is some one who sustains that, Christ is the one who wakes us up and we are free to do what ever. Let's us not heap praises on our riches but there is someone behind who sustains our lives.
"This pandemic has brought doubt in lives of people but it is it not the case. We go though trials and tribulations but this should be an encouragement for us to survive this pandemic,we need to focus on Christ as our way out," he said.
The song is a remix from his first album which was done in South African genre, house music.
Explaining why he decided to fuse the Malawian vibes, Mawindo said he is now more into acoustic sounds.
"It has Malawian touch, traditional, a kind of a Tchopa tune with electrical guitar.
"Iam a fan of acoustic music. Iam inspired by Faith Mussa, Peter Mawanga so looking at the track I felt the need to bring it back to Malawi. We are Malawians and should enjoy Malawian music," Mawindo said.
He disclosed that probably this second half of the year till next he plans to work on Extended Play (EP)
"Iam kind of changing my genre. My music is a fusion so people should expect singles which will build into an EP," he explained.
Mawindo's music journey started with interest from family background that builds from Chrissy Kanthunzi, Ruth Nyondo both of whom are his aunts.
He went on to sing in church and later stated composing his own music.
Mawindo has one album to his name titled 'Mpulumutsi Wanga' released in 2007.
Since then has been working on EP's and singles like 'Iam free' as well as 'Pack up and Go'
