Speaking in an interview with faceofmalawi reporter, Chalo said his life is a testimony.
“l was born in a poor family of five and it was a challenge for my parents to provide us with basic needs such as food and shelter. We used to do some piece work to earn a living and sometimes we could be assisted by rich people.
“This forced me to leave my home village which is Embangweni in Mzimba for South Africa,” said Chalo in WhatsApp interview.
He added that his life now is no longer the same.
Chalo urged Malawians especially the youths who are currently struggling to earn a living to trust in the living God and that one day he will answer their prayers.
Chalo started singing at church choir in 2006 and in 2018 it’s when he thought of coming up with a 10 track album as a solo secular artist.
