This has been proved true for renowned poet Chisomo Mdalla popularly known by his pen name Nyamalikiti Nthiwatiwa.
The 32-year-old poet walked down the aisle with the love of his life Chikhulupiro Nsanjama at Word Alive Church on April 25 after a four-year courtship.
The two treated family and friends to a reception at Green Valley Garden CI in Blantyre after the officiation by Word Alive International Ministries founder and leader Rev Zacc Kawalala.
The ever jovial and humorous poet said the marriage life had opened up another chapter in the book of his life.
“It feels good and great that I have married my fiancée. I have started to appreciate the importance of marriage,” Nyamalikiti said.
The celebrated poet of his generation after Okomaatani Malunga and Gospel Kazako said getting married should clear the misconception that most artists lead immoral lifestyle.
“I don’t buy that artists should be immoral because I take poetry as an occupation. Every man needs love and where you can get it you should contain it.”
“Temptation will always be there but God should be in control.”
Nyamalikiti in a kind of poetic expression said he comes from Likoswe Village in Traditional Authority Machinjiri Blantyre his paternal family home not Chirazulu his mother’s home.
“I consider my father’s home Likoswe Village in Traditional Authority Machinjiri Blantyre as my home because it means a lot to me. I was brought up from my father’s home,” he said.
His better half, who is the last born in a family of three children, comes from Mjauma Village in Traditional Authority Malema in Zomba.
Nyamalikiti is also a last born in family of eight children.
