Gospel musician Allan Chirwa has announced the release of his third album titled The Spirituals.
The Ebenezer hit maker said the album was recorded in Cape Town, South Africa at Joesha Records, but mixed locally by producer Joseph Tembo at Groove Magic Studios in Blantyre.
“People should expect inspiring songs from my album. I have composed the songs with effort and dedication,” he said.
Chirwa also said he got some help from a Zimbabwean gospel artist, Nyasha Kamilaya, who is based in Cape Town, adding that he wants to share great and improved music with his fans.
“It was amazing working with such a determined young female artist. Nyasha is a talented gospel artist and well known in South Africa and Zimbabwe,” he said.
Chirwa said he regards his music as a ministry hence his mission is to take the message to all.
The Blantyre-based artist said he took a six-year break because he wanted to give his fans the best and focus on this album as well as other commitments.
“I needed more time to rebrand and grow as a musical artist. I have changed in presentation, stage work and my music quality,” said Chirwa.
Commenting on the development, Lilongwe-based broadcaster for Pentecostal Life Radio, Ali Kalichero wrote on his Facebook page: “Proud of you Allan Chirwa. You are a blessing to many, including myself. Welcome back brother”.
Gospel artist Thocco Katimba wrote: “Welcome back brother Allan. I wish you nothing but best of luck. Am so much in love with this track Mtima wa Mbuyako, you bless me bro”.
Another fan who lives in Glasgow, United Kingdom, Gertie Kadzuwa, wrote: “Allan, this is not only a comeback but it is an accelerated advancement of the Kingdom of God through your prophetic praise and worship. Praying and believing for open heaven”.
The album will be launched on April 27 at Comesa Hall in Blantyre. Chirwa will be supported by fellow gospel artist Patience Namadingo.
The album has songs such as Wandidalitsa, Mtima Wambuyako, Yankho, Chisomo Chake, Mundilandire and Sufuna Kupita Nane. n
