Bio

Marco Sadik is an Amsterdam-based Malawian singer, performer and songwriter who began singing at a tender age of 10. Born on the 4th of August 1984 in the Northern Region of Malawi to a Malawian mother and a Mozambican father, Sadik’s early appearance in the music industry saw him winning his debut competitive music comp at an age of 14. His popularity in the Malawian music industry springs from his hometown in Mzuzu, where he started to DJ at 18, a hobby which became professional when he was 20. Upon realizing the growth of his fan base, the sultry voiced artist decided to take his profession at a national level and moved to Blantyre in 2001 where he began exploring different musical styles. This period was a turning point for the ‘Samalani Chikondi’ star when he enhanced his status by focusing more on Afro-beat/Afro-soul music writing – a mixture of traditional Nigerian and Ghanaian music, jazz and chanted vocals that is merged with percussion and vocal styles made popular in Africa in the 1970s.

The Afro-Soul artist worked as a DJ at Star Radio where he also wrote ad jingles, a development that enabled him to discern his ability to turn words into good sound – music. His work as a DJ materialized his passion for music and in 2006; Sadik began penning his own songs. In June 2008, Marco launched his debut album ‘Umodzi’ (Unity), an Afro-beat musical piece that features ‘Linda’ a hit single which he recorded in 2004. ‘Linda’ was the artist’s first single which was recorded five times before making it to the streets owing to poor quality. In 2011, the ‘Linda’ hit maker awarded his fans with yet another “gift” – Zanga, a second album that features ‘Kaduwa’ a soulful love song written and performed by Sadik in the Malawian language of Chichewa. Apart from his music, Marco has featured on other artist’s projects chief among them Pop Dogg on his single ‘Priceless’, Young Kay’s ‘Palwe’ which also featured Nasselah. He has also worked with different artists namely Riva 9, Pisky, Barry One, Junior Cee and CO.
