One of the country’s renowned musicians Skeffa Chimoto has trashed rumors circulating on social media that he is joining politics.
Chimoto told local media on Tuesday that what is being said is not true and that he is not even interested in politics.
The ‘ Chinandiluma chakuda’ hit maker’s remarks follow speculations in light of his presence at a political rally Malawi Congress Party ( MCP) held in Nkhotakota over the weekend, where he was amongst those sitting at the high table.
Some quarters went on social media saying he is contemplating contesting as a Member of Parliament in Nkhotakota where he hails from.
” I was invited to the rally to perform and nothing else,” said Chimoto.
The musician said he was asked to sit at the high table to shift attention from where he was seated at first.
In Malawi, several artists have in the past joined politics and they include Billy Kaunda, Malume Bokosi, and Soldier Lucius Banda.
