MUSICIAN GEORGE MKANDAWIRE HAS DIED

One of the country’s most talented gospel musician
of this generation George Mkandawire has died.
Nation Online understands that Mkandawire has
died in Zambia where he was currently residing but
the cause of his death is not yet known.
In an interview, his younger brother Charles
Mkandawire, who is based in Cape Town, South
Africa, said as a family they are shocked to hear of
George’s passing.
“We talked on Friday and he didn’t indicate in any
way that he was sick. He was sharing with me
updates on his upcoming single projects that he did
under the Major 1 Records recently, ” he said.
Mkandawire said details about the burial
arrangements will be communicated in due course
but indicated that vigil will be held in Ndirande,
Blantyre where George’s parents stay.
George, who was born in 1974, hailed from
Nkombezi village in Rumphi district. The artist rose
to stardom in the early 2000s after releasing
albums such as Ulendo.
Lately, he went into a music hibernation only to
resurface last year with news that he had signed for
Major 1 Records which is owned by Prophet
Shephard Bushiri.
