Komuniq-Usalire

Komuniq’s Wolakika Album on the way

Komuniq has been in the underground Reggae scene for more than a decade now, writing and recording music for many artists in the game before this scheduled debut release.The first singles released for the album were produced by seasoned producer Trumel.

On “Usalire”, Komuniq offers hope singing, “Chilichose chili ndi nthawi ndi Malo. Usalire mai Malawi,… ndi dalo. Kuti ugonjetse umphawi, Thukuta lako lidzagonjetsa njala”. Backed by fierce production from Trumel, the song takes on its own life inspiring the listener as Komuniq weaves his vocals effortlessly through strong riffs and a rocking bass.

“Mpando Wachifumu” sees Komuniq in rare form again this time with a message more in line to his Bobo Shante grounding in Chileka. “Ndilakalaka mbuye m’tundandi tsuka, machimo anga bwenzi atapunguka… Ndi ndani yemwe akufuna moyo? Ayenera kusenza mtanda wake, kuyang’ana ku mpando wachifumu wake!”
WARNING: This is not the reggae smanje-manje!

The Very Best

The Very Best Prepare For New Album

The chance introduction over the purchase of a bicycle in 2008 led Johan Hugo to invite Esau Mwamwaya into his studio to collaborate on the mixtape that would launch their career.

Containing an infectious cross-pollination of samples and rhythms anchored by Esau’s soaring vocals, the mixtape quickly went viral (with approx. 1 000,000 downloads to date).
Pitchfork offered them a slot at their festival for their U.S. debut, and worldwide tour dates for their infamous live shows followed.

In the beginning of 2014 The Very Best signed their 3rd record deal with Moshi Moshi records in London. During a trip to Lilongwe in 2013 to play City Of Stars (the 5th time TVB played Lake Of Stars) they started to record for their third album. They just finished a 3 week trip on lake Malawi (close to Mangochi) where they recorded an additional 10 songs. Only one more trip to Malawi in May will be needed to finish their highly anticipated 3rd album.

Matumbi and Bokosi are alive and well.

Matumbi, Bokosi Not Dead As Facebook Death Rumours Go Viral

While the false rumours that Nyakwawa Matumbi had passed away were still fresh, it seems more badmind people were also busy spreading rumours of the death of Malume Bokosi.

“Sizabwino kuti munthu udzimva za imfa yako yomwe pa Facebook… I received so many calls from people inquiring about my ‘death.’ It’s not true, I am strong and healthy and I am not at all sick. This is confusing and I have been affected surely,” Bokosi said.
Malume Bokosi hails from Machinga. He is famous for songs such as “Alimi Tidalakwanji” and “Akuvulalia Nkati”. Bokosi’s catalogue consists of five albums.
Kukamwa Kwangotiuma is Malume Bokosi’s biggest seller, selling over 200,000 copies in its first year of release.

Fellow musician, Ann Matumbi also had to dispel rumors surrounding his death.

On Thursday afternoon, a false rumour was spread via Facebook that Matumbi, whose real name is Chiyanjano Muheziwa, was no more after a short illness and that his remains were in the mortuary at Kamuzu Central Hospital, KCH.

Matumbi hinted that he will record a song this week to hit back at the master-minders of his ‘sudden death.’

“Anthu ena osowa zochita mwafalitsa uthenga wokuti ine ndafa. Kufa kwa ambuye anu mupatse ine? Ine ndikumalandira ma telefoni kuchokera kunja ngati ku UK kumandifunsa zoti ndafa. Ndili nanu nanu ndipo ndikulowa mu studio ndinkhani imeneyi”
