WIKISE NEEDS TO START TRANSITIONING IF HE IS GONNA STAY AT THE SUMMIT OF HIS GAME
It’s no secret that Wikise took Malawi by surprise and by storm with his breakout song “Shabalakatakali” of which he used a comic and fun approach to criticize some socially unacceptable behaviors.
Most people(me inclusive) thought he was gonna crumble in the inferno of fame but Wikise proved he wasn’t a one hit wonder as he went on to release hit after hit, eventually making him a household name.
The success story didn’t stop there however, as Wikise made a smooth transition from artist and performer to a corporate trademark and brand, which is a feat most artists have failed to achieve.
As proud of him as i am, i have an advise for him. Music changes, and as an artist, he has to change too. He needs to start exploring new ideas of which he can entertain his fans and also expand his fan base. This is not something new to him since he has made an impressive transtion before, switching from Afro RnB to the “Muli Zingati” era.
One thing is for sure, Wikise is a clever artist and he will always find a way to keep his fans entertained and leave them hungry for more.
