Lilongwe-based hip-hop icon Martse, has yet dropped another surprise. This time he features dancehall artist Mafo in his newly released single ‘Zikumpweteka’.
The song talks about how jealous has taken toll, and people are no longer appreciating each other on various achievement and talents.
“I see and dream music,” Martse said in an interview shortly after the song hit Malawi-Music.com. “It’s more than just what I hear. When I’m connected to something, I immediately see a visual or a series of images that are tied to a feeling, a memory from my childhood, thoughts about life, my dreams they’re all connected to the music.”
“I just want to give my music to the people I love and respect and hope that they feel the same thing I felt when I made the music,” the rapper said.
And commenting on his recent awesome performances at Gwamba and Nesnes’ album launch, both in Lilongwe and Blantyre, the rapper said “It was such a beautiful moment,” Martse told the media. “Again, it sent chills down my spine just to be there with him in his element doing what he was made to do. And as my friend, it felt good to see him feeling so good about that.”
A person can criticize Martse for a lot of things, but complacency is not one of them. As a hip-hop act that has been successful multiple times over the years, Martse could always stand firm. This is the spirit that drives artistic achievement. So, regardless of your opinion on Martse, there is a reason to respect him for making great music.
