Malawian R&B/Pop sensation Teddy announces the release of his brand new single, “Ndimasangalala“. This comes through as Teddy’s first installment of the year after the release of his previous debut album, “MAKADI” in October last year.
“Ndimasangalala” breaks the silence of the R&B crooner’s short recent hiatus, and shows a continuation of the artist’s rapidly growing music career, serving up as something fresh to light up the mood for this year’s Valentine’s season.
“Ndimasangalala” first premiered on MBC Radio 2 FM’s hit radio show ‘Made On Monday’ before later being uploaded online onto other streaming platforms.
Talking about his new single, Teddy described it as a celebration of love, that has been experienced by a loved that has been lost. “It emphasizes and illuminates on the memories, joy, and peace that comes with knowing that you shared a part of their life or they shared a part of their life with you and just thanking them for letting you in to be part of it”.
“I thought it was ideal for me to drop the song on Valentine’s, especially for people who lost their loved ones or wish they could be here so they could enjoy Valentine’s together, but didn’t or do not actually have the opportunity to do so”.
He added: “As an artist, this song helped me realize how in times of celebration we really just look at what is available and not look at what is not available. So in this way, it’s just a way of being able to celebrate others and not only focus on what is there but also on what you once had before”.
