Kellie Divine engages Malinga in new song "Alhamdulillah"

Lilongwe based Reggae and Dancehall artist Kellie Divine, born Cailly Rashid will this coming Monday release her much anticipated single titled "Alhamdulillah," which features Malawi's renowned Dancehall Icon Malinga.

Speaking in an interview on Friday, the artist said "Alhamdulillah" is an Arabic phrase which translates to "Thank God" in English and it is on this background that she thought of hatching a love song appreciating God's love through his man.

"The song is talking about a long awaited true love and it is like a girl is appreciating the true love that is only given by God himself through her lover," Kellie Divine said.

She said it has always been her wish to sing a romantic song and move out of her comfort zone which is writing positive songs carrying messages that affect people day by day.

"I need to rebrand myself into a complete artist who can compose songs that can be loved by people from all walks of life," she said.

She added that it has also been her wish to compose a song with Malinga considering that her fans usually pressurized her to make a song with the dancehall icon.

After disclosing the release date of the song on her Facebook page, several fans expressed their excitement saying they have been waiting for this collaboration.

The song will be premiered on Radio 2 FM's Made on Monday program with Joy Nathu and will also be available on all major streaming platforms on the internet after its premier.
