Kamati Ekanda on the mend

By Pricilla Mukokobi

Traditional (Shambo) musician, Kamati Ekanda refuses to be forgotten despite not being in the limelight for ages. This week Kamati said he is working on a new album featuring D-Kandjada and Maj-Beat after a lengthy hiatus.

“I’m done with my new album called ‘om kolele’ meaning Elders,” he said.

Kamati who describes himself as a musician cum businessman said he is also venturing into film production.

” Since I’m an artist at the same time a businessman, COVID-19 has affected me badly. although its a pandemic I feel complaining can only make it worse for myself and the people who depend on me like my kids, fiancee and my family at large. All I do is to grab anything that can go generate money for survival,” he said.
