Tears of up-and-coming musicians in Malawi are flowing to media houses with Nomo Cooper taking the lead in calling for support.
The Blantyre based artist shared with this publication yesterday, grievances of the rising artists and how they can be helped to get established. His call comes at a time when bias claims have been levelled against the media as it is claimed they favour big names in the industry.
Cooper, however does not accuse the media of favouring established musicians, saying prominence matters for one to get media coverage.
He believes the media has power to help the musician make a name.
The 27 year old was all smiles on Monday when his song premiered on Joy Nathu’s highly rated radio show, Made on Monday. The song titled Unakadziwa, features top artist Kelvin Singz.
“I thank Joy Nathu for the platform. My appeal to other media houses is to help us, up-and-coming artists as we endure blossoming days.”
Meanwhile, Ukanadziwa which was produced by Blage is available on Joy Nathu’s website.
Nomo promises fireworks as he strives to establish citizenship in the industry. An EP is on the list of his late 2017 gifts to Malawi.
“Am also working on videos for Sera Mwana wa teacher and Undikonde. Both songs have the input of big shots in Malawi music.”
When all is said and done, blossoming talent is getting recognition in Malawi through different platforms.
