Nepman speaks on love for SA
Malawi’s chorus wizard Nepman has spoken on his never ending South African trips for music performances amidst rumours of his possible migration to that nation.
The singer who is enjoying heydays of his music career having bounced back in 2014 with Nalero, is undoubtedly Malawi’s man of the moment.
He often travels to the rainbow nation for concerts making his fans speculate that he is trying to earn South African citizenship.
In an exclusive interview with Malawi24, Nepman admitted having massive backing in South Africa. However he rubbished claims of moving to South Africa saying he only makes the trips on business grounds, to perform whenever people need him.
“People are impressed with my work and that is why South Africa has become some sort of a next door neighbour. When am there I mostly entertain Malawians who happen to come with their friends who are natives,” said Nepman
Born Nepman Longwe, the Ndirande resident has performed at Amadoda in South Africa on many occasions. He once travelled with Malawi’s afro pop star, Piksy, early this year and their show was another memorable experience as the hall was robbed of all its spaces having been overfilled.
Nepman is Malawi’s most featured artist who has worked with local music giants on uncountable projects. He has also collaborated with many up and coming artists, a development that largely makes him subject to negative criticism as people believe the artist needs to have a choice on who to feature.
He has recently worked with a youngsters group, W Twice, on a song entitled Wadusa Pompa. The chorus injected by Nepman himself is a killer punch that has made the art work a trending hit.
