'Wane' Single Drops Monday for Mzuzu Artist
The song by Merchah, real name Uchizi Salala Msowoya, speaks of "scenarios where one can even drop out of college just to be with their soul mate," he said.
MZUZU, Malawi - "Love is so strong," says Mzuzu-based afro-pop artist Merchah about his new single "Wane," set for release Monday, writes George Mponda, MANA.
The song by Merchah, real name Uchizi Salala Msowoya, speaks of "scenarios where one can even drop out of college just to be with their soul mate," he said in an interview with the Malawi News Agency.
"The concept of the song is to show that love is so strong."
"Wane," produced by Chawabeats and Drzzbeats from Nigeria, is Merchah's first single of 2024. He released two other singles last year, "Vyapachalo" and "Handede."
"In 2024, I'm set to drop my debut project which is an album which I, together with my team have been working on since 2022 and we are happy that we can finally release it," said Merchah, who is signed to Magic Fingers Entertainment LLC.
The entertainment company is co-owned by U.S.-based Malawian Tionge Mhango and Nigerian producer Oluwaseyi Akelere.
Official Magic Fingers producer Chawanangwa Ngoma said fans "should be prepared to listen to smashing hits from Merchah."
"We have lined up a couple features with Nigerian, South African and Ghanaian main stream artists so fans should be prepared," Ngoma said.
Gift Shaba, a Merchah fan in Mzuzu, said he is "looking forward to the album which he is releasing this year."
"He is a very talented musician but unfortunately, we only have a handful of songs from him," Shaba said.
