Fellow drummers do not see Malachi as a kid, rather as a professional. Grammy award jazz pianist, Preston Vismala says when he plays with Malachi, he forgets that he is just a child.
To be honest, sometimes i think am playing with a grown man. I play and I look up and go, "He is a kid".
 Another professional jazz player, Roy Woodsen describes Malachi as "10 jazz musicians wrapped up in one little body and swinging like an old soul".


Giving back: Malachi says he would like to learn how to play the piano, violin and saxophone, and pass on his knowledge to other young people

This is so inspiring. This is a clear case of parents recognising their child potential early in time, believing in him and allowing him fulfils his dreams and also encouraging him in the process.
