The Malawian international has a tally of 14 goals in 18 games this season, after initially playing second fiddle to Tshegofatso Mabasa in the early stages of the campaign, and still has 10 games left in the season.

His arrival from Bidvest Wits in July may have come as a surprise, but the 27-year-old has already exceeded expectations of The Buccaneers faithful by becoming the club's top scorer in a single season over the past 10 seasons.
