Praise's Story

Intensely devoted to challenging the norm, Lilongwe-based singer, songwriter and producer Praise Umali is redefining what it means to make ‘Afro-Pop’ music.

Born on September 15th 1997, Praise is diverse as a musician and showcases both his talents as a singer and rapper.

Praise has diversified his sound and experimented in ways that challenge ideas of what it means to be a Malawian musician. His music carries Indie, Afro and Folk sounds with strong acoustic undertones and is influenced and inspired by the works of Jon Bellion, James Arthur, Faith Mussa, Lawi and JP Saxe.

Praise draws inspiration from many corners of his life, He writes for both himself and his audience, in hopes that someone will hear his story and find the strength to keep writing their own.

His unfiltered form of writing was shown in his debut Album “SEPTEMBER”which features songs like his debut single ‘Proud’, which made waves in 2020, and ‘You’ll be Good (2021)’ a song that has become an anthem for pushing through and persevering.

Praise has graced many Malawian stages with his talent, including the Lake of Stars Festival, Lifest and the Ufulu Festival, he has shared the stage with many Local and international talents, including Faith Mussa, Shekinah, JoeBoy, Chris Martin, Amanda Black, Pompi, Nandi, Suffix and many others.
