M-dub’s 2018 best new act UMP awards winning singer/songwriter ELI of Njuchi Zitatu Music crew has released a new encouraging song entitled “Zitheke”.
According to the Illuminati hitmaker, Zitheke, which was premiered on “Made On Monday” on radio 2 FM on 13th January 2020 with Dj Joy Nathu is one of the songs in his Extended Playlist (EP) named “Lion EP” which will be released soon.
The concept behind Zitheke is about urging young people to work hard until they fulfil their dreams as the artist believes in hard work.
“Am young and I came from the ghetto where a lot of youth face different challenges, so I just felt compelled to write something that talks about hard work which is what I believe in, a lot of us young people need to work on,” He said.
Hard-working spirit is something that has helped Eli excel as he has scored major festival gigs with Lake of Stars and Ufulu Festival, with UMP award recognition in 2019- a year in which he released only one single.
The 17-year-old young star has hinted on working on a collection to be released later this year. Zitheke was produced by some of the Malawian best music producers Blage and Sispence.
