Most of the songs on his album are love songs and features Martse, Emm Q, Big Tar, and Kell Kay. Both the “Sendeza” and “Ndipanga Zaiwe” songs are love songs which talks about how a girl should be close to man telling her she has stopped all the bad things in their relationships and the other song talks on how the man will hold close to his woman no matter what people say. The album project has productions from Janta, DJ Sley, Dj Snow K and M Stix and will be released mid next year 2015.

Furthermore, Penetrator has reportedly been collaborating with fellow artist, Gwamba, Blaze, Krazie-G for his upcoming solo album.

Artwork for Wako Wako

Piksy drops new single, dedicates it to newly married couple

Piksy’s new single is a moving song dedicated to newly-wed Deus and Mwanasha Lupenga., thus it was done for their wedding and it was sang and launched at the wedding.

The Airtel Malawi Brand Ambassador promised a new single this week, and it seems as though CCNB (Chimfana Chodziwika Ndi Boma) has followed it through. Today (Oct. 20), Piksy released his new single “Wako Wako” ahead of his new album Mthunzi.

Wako Wako is a modern afro-pop song with spacey musical themes, reflected much on love. The twinkling synthesizers add to a driving momentum, creating a major sense of buildup and epic urgency.

The song’s immediate kick off, comprised of a piano-like groove and a swell of stringed instruments, helps to set the song’s dramatic and romantic-filled theme.

“Wako Wako” seems to tell the lyrical story of an impending relationship and all the urgency and intensity that can lead to two people finally coming together.

“Tinafunitsitsa banja titamanga / Koma tinadziwa kufika sikuthamanga / Wona lero ndine wako wako, ndine wako” Piksy sings in the explosive chorus.

Commenting on song, Piksy said ‘it is a song that talks about love and patience, and all the things that make love to be love.

He continued by adding that ‘it is an unashamedly heartfelt tribute to the strength of women, and how much men depend on them. And people call women the weaker sex,’ he says. ‘How foolish is that?’

The topic of happiness, finding confidence, patience and love feels like a huge stretch for Piksy, and it works far better than it should. The song is positive but doesn’t force the topic into your face, instead it’s an easy message, delivered via Piksy’s most emotionally and romantically focused song to date.

The song was produced at JK studios in Blantyre by Yuze Yuganda.

Specific details surrounding Mthunzi, including a tracklist and album cover as well as additional guest musicians, will be unveiled in the coming weeks.

Penetrator set to drop new single featuring Martse

With the success of his hit single ‘Sendeza‘, Penetrator, real name Dalitso Masaiti is enjoying more exposure than ever. It would be fitting, then, to call his new single “Ndipanga Zaiwe” and make a song about his long road to triumph. Except that’s not how Penetrator operates; it seems the more mainstream acceptance he gains through Sendeza, the more artful his music becomes and it is as clear an elucidation of Penetrator’s state of mind as there is in his catalog.

“Ndipanga Zaiwe” features rapper Martse real name Martin Nkhata, and the song is more about contemplation than celebration. The single will be available for streaming on Malawi’s number one music site Malawi-Music.com. The song was produced by Jacxy of SU Records and is expected to be released on Wednesday, October 22.

Tech Dali

Dali drops surprise ‘Nyamulira’ single and video featuring Dan Lu: Watch it here!

Earlier today, RnB superstar Dali formerly ‘Tech Dali’ surprised not just his fans, but the music industry with not only news about an upcoming album and cover, but by unleashing the first single and video of the new campaign as well, all in the span of half an hour.

The single is the first track that has been officially released ahead of the singer’s new album which will be released soon on a date to be announced, according to the star’s manager Bensam Entertainment.

The video, directed by Ben of Bensam Entertainment (who is also directing rapper Martse’s upcoming video for “Mwapindulanji” which is expected to be premiered soon), matches the mood of the tune, with a lot of negative space and some ominous scenes. Enjoy its subtle spookiness below.

The new song ‘Nyamulira’ has already received some rave reviews from critics who have described it as a new, more mature sound for the singer.

Dali has collaborated with a massive 5 different artists on this upcoming album – and with that much input from musicians including talks with Zambia’s hip-hop group Zone Fam, Malawi’s dancehall artist Blaze and Afro-pop superstar Dan Lu. Dali’s upcoming album promises fireworks, with his typically powerful vocals and voice acrobatics, we’re expecting big things from the singer.
Mixing a bit of local with a touch a afro-pop/rock and then pouring in a ton of RnB, “Nyamulira” could be one of Dali’s best songs yet. As creative as it is exuberant, this song delivers a unique style, and it proves that no matter how long you’ve been doing something, you can still grow and surprise people with new twists and turns. If you’ve been thinking that Michael W. Smith is just for the younger crowd, it’s seriously time to rethink your position.

We have to admit, the song is catchy – and if his recent success with “Sindikusiyasiya” was anything to go by, Dali could be in for a very big win this year.

Malawi making songs for environment and energy awareness

Music can bring people people together and music can be used as a communication medium to highlight concerns.  This is why Musicians across Malawi are coming together to spread awareness concerning the environment, energy, natural resources and climate change through a series of free shows.  Climate change is a long-time change in the statistical distribution of weather patterns and it is inevitable after an extended period of time. Everyday people living in Malawi witness the effects of climate change like change in average weather conditions across the country, or in the time variation of weather around longer-term average conditions.  It is a known fact that Malawi is one of the top countries that has been facing difficulty due to climate change.  At the same time Malawi has one of Africa’s highest deforestation rates of 2.8% per year.  From this understanding it’s obvious that things will get worse if we don’t do anything about it.

The new initiative by Malawi-Music.com is called the “Environment And Energy Awareness Campaign”, which is a brand new social environment campaign targeted at preparing young Malawians on how to deal with climate change and the future.  The campaign has been creatively designed by environmentalists with passion for music and artists across the beautiful country of Malawi are getting together to record on a special instrumental called the “Environment Riddim”.  A beat/riddim was originally produced by Malawi’s renowned producer St Boseratti (formerly known as 3rd Degree).   Anyone can participate by doing their own version of an environment awareness song using the “environment riddim”.  Successfully submitted songs will receive recognition and sponsorship from various local and international organizations including promotion on Malawi-Music.com and other social media networks.  The leading songs will be performed in environment awareness events across the country and online on the Top 20 Environment chart available on the Green Malawi page.    The benefits for sponsoring a popular environment song range from fulfilling social obligations, to branding at events that will encourage young people to be more responsibility about the environment and energy of the country while learning to deal with climate change.

To get started:  Artist should visit the Green Malawi page on Malawi-music.com or follow this link: http://www.malawi-music.com/greenmalawi/.  SMEs and Corporate organizations are also being encouraged to get involved and make an environmental stand by sponsoring a Malawi music environment event, awareness song or donating towards the campaign.  We need to be concerned and we need to act now.  Let’s help together to heal the earth for a better future.
