Lazarus back with new gospel tunes

Malawian musician Lazarus

Malawian musician and banjo player Lazarus Chigwandali says people should expect a new album from him titled 'Tili pa Ulendo' later this year.

The singer who describes his musical journey as on track, attributed his silence to the COVID-19 pandemic but is nonetheless upbeat of revamping his musical career.

He hinted it will be a Gospel album which many people are going to be like and be blessed with.

“The drive behind this upcoming album is that people should think through where we’re coming from, where we are and where we’re going because we’ve gone through so many changes and right now life has changed and without putting God first; one cannot succeed hence the title of my upcoming album 'Tili pa Paulendo' which will be coming out soon.

Lazarus was spotted at a reception hosted to celebrate the signing of the second Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC) Malawi Transport and Land Compact on Thursday which pooled together high ranking Malawi and American  government officials.

He was invited as a guest artist to perform at the event.

An albinism activist, Lazarus hailed the US Embassy for the honour.

“I thank God because I know there are so many good artists in Malawi who are more famous than me but I’ve been chosen to sing here at the Ambassador’s residence. I’m thanking God for this honour”.

The 42 year old appealed to his fellow musicians to unite and love one another    

US Ambassador David Young and others could not help clapping and dancing to the tunes Lazarus was dishing out during the reception.
