Spark Liko: A music gem untapped, but with massive potential

LOMDAKA BANDA – MALAWIHEAT.COM

Fast-rising afro-pop star Spark Liko born Thomson Msiska has said, as an artist, he will continue to dish out music that should keep Malawians wanting for more.

The Mzuzu University Bachelor of Arts (Education) graduate said in an interview with MalawiHeat.com on Tuesday, that his creativity is driven by the happenings in the society, adding that the strategy helps thousands of people connect to his songs.

He was responding to a review of one of his songs by creative writer and Nyasa Times senior editor, Pius Nyondo, who described his song ‘Mwakomera Dara’ as a number that exposes the committed artist that is Spark Liko.


“Mwakomera Dara exposes the committed artist that is Spark Liko as it addresses a heightening problem of girl education in the country, and the stereotype roaming in most of us that girls/women are - to use Buchi Emecheta's title - Second Class Citizen[s]. The creativity, in the song, is excellent.

“And, it is punctuated with well-thought instrumentation and aptly coordinated voices. Somewhere, of course, the persona is speaking not singing; but it is forgivable since the message that is being sent across is overly powerful. I recommend the song to NGOs that deal with issues of girl-child education, especially 'the Keeping Girls in School' initiatives,” Nyondo said in a brief review of Mwakomera Dara posted on his official Facebook page.

Spark Liko in an interview, said he was humbled with the review.

“It is both humbling and encouraging especially coming from someone like Pius Nyondo. It means that somehow my music has some impact out there and can be appreciated,” said Spark Liko.
