Since then he has performed in several countries and at many festivals, including Glastonbury, Lake of Stars, Arts festival of Northern Norway, World Fest California, Tumaini Festival and more. In his home country, he won several prestigious awards, such as the MAM award for Song of the Year 2013, Nyasa Award for Song of the Year 2017 and Malawi Special Achievers Award 2017.
