Blantyre-based reggae-dancehall artist, Stich Fray, has a new song titled ‘Wa Minibus’ to be released this Saturday, 15 February, under Trap Entertainment.
The song which was produced by Maximum-Rev is a dedication to Malawian minibus drivers and conductors. It features female artists Lady Pace and Complex on the backing vocals.
“It’s a song that describes the struggles and tribulations that minibus drivers and conductors go through in their everyday lives,” he told Nyasa Showbiz.
Stich Fray added: “The song is in a first point of view in which I, as the persona was describing myself as a minibus driver and a conductor at the same time.”
The song is taken from Stich’s upcoming album titled ‘Dreams and Thoughts’ slated for release this year. Other singles which are already out off the album are ‘Achoke’ ft. Zeze (which is getting good radio airplay) and ‘Ndati No No’, released in May last year.
Stich Fray is a member of the group Trap Squad together with Revolver, Judagaga and Chavura and they have released songs like ‘John Chilembwe Remix’ and ‘Waku Blantyre’. They are signed to Trap Entertainment.
As a solo artist, he has also released singles ‘4 minus 3’ and ‘Family over Everything’.
Stich started his career in 2008 as a member of a dancehall group called Afarisi. It was through the group that he was introduced to Power 101’s DJ Chris, who gave him his first radio interview.
In 2010 he opened his own studio D&T Records in Chilobwe. A year later Stich was introduced to hip-hop artist Revolver, producing the rapper’s hit single ‘Mbina Mbina’ and went on to produce his 2012 album ‘Chilembwe ndi Madona’ which led to nationwide recognition as one of the most popular producers in the country.
Stich Fray has also produced for several artists including BarryOne, Nesnes, and Patience Namadingo.
