BLANTYRE, Inspired by the Yao tribe accent, composer, singer and songwriter Patience Namadingo has given his fans a 2017 farewell hit, Goliyati.
Released on Monday, the song seeks to strengthen listeners so that they can forge ahead even though they face problems in their day to day lives.
Namadingo told Malawi News Agency (Mana) on Tuesday that the song has come at a time when people are very intimate with music as the year is coming to an end.
This is the end of the year, this is when people have intimate relationship with music and this is when people want to dance and they want new music. So I believe that this is the right time, he said.
He said some people think that the problems they are facing are too big that it only needs them to lie, sin and to get corrupt if they want to get out of them.
I would like to encourage them to say no. In every Goliath there must be a David that must bring that Goliath down. So don’t runaway, don’t sin because of your problem just work hard and you are going to achieve your goals, the Msati Mseke fame said.
The accent in the song is not pure Chichewa in the first verse but rather, a Yao accent in Chichewa and according to him, he wanted to appreciate how people would pronounce his name in Yao accent Che Pezyezi.
He was however, quick to mention that the Che Pezyezi name will only be used in as far as Goliyati song is concerned otherwise, he still remains Patience.
Produced by Sam Mzota and Sam Bokosi of Abstract Records in Blantyre, the song first hit the airwaves on Monday by Joy Nathu during Made on Monday program on Malawi Broadcasting Corporation (MBC) Radio two.
He described 2017 as a great year as he was able to produce Mozimira, Tandigwireni and Dziko Lilipamoto under the AllNewNamadingo Extended Program (EP) which received overwhelming support.
Meanwhile, the artist is expected to hold his last concert of the year on 23rd December at Bingu International Convention Centre (BICC) in Lilongwe.
