It’s not a question  of trying to tear people apart but rather appreciating the fact that in every crew, there is that one soldier who always make sure the crew`s flag stay up all the time.

The music industry knows and respects the Pasanje brothers as among rappers who are considered as legends in the hip-hop game.

These guys launched their music career many years ago before hip hop was dissolved.

They rose to fame in times of Jolly Bro whom most people knows as JB, the beef addict.

JB`s song Khalapansi which was everywhere made every ghetto youth to fall in love with the daredevils and start following the brothers.

Of course they had other songs before JB`s Khalapansi and not forgetting their mixtape “Welcome to the Dark Side” but those weren’t popular in streets as Khalapansi was.

They were later heard with the likes of Fredokiss and JB in songs like, Akazi, Kuthetsa Kunyoza, Akazi aku Blantyre, just to mention a few.

These joints and a few others helped the Deredevils to build their mainstream fan base.

With change of time, Malawi saw Daredevils fully diverted from hard beats they used to ride on, to mainstream beats that works even in weddings.

The change should therefore not be blamed as it is advisable to move with time.

daredevils
The daredevils – Gd and Marques

 

The only change which is questionable is Marques`s participation in Daredevils. For the past two or three years Marques hasn’t been fully active and fully representing daredevils.

Perhaps that contributed to the silence of the daredevils over a year or two years ago.

The silence created space for other rappers who came and took over the game like nobody`s business.

The likes of Gwamba, and many others took over the hip-hop game and changed it.  Of course those weren’t much popular in times of JB, but big up to Fredokiss for making sure his flag was still raised even up to date.

Now everyone can agree with the fact that this game is like a woman who is not settled with one man but still runs to other men who seem to be pushing their way up.

Despite all these changes, GD who seems to be the soldier was still trying not to let the Daredevils flag completely on the ground even when other artists seemed to have had the game in their hands.

The fun base have witnessed a couple of songs in which GD was alone but still representing daredevils as a crew and other songs in which Marques only did one verse and the rest thrown to GD.

Just not long ago after the daredevils adapted the mainstream, the crew made a love tune “Only Love” which delivered a love message.

Everyone recalls Gd spat a line that went like, “forget the beef daredevils got love too”

That was actually accepting the fact that the game had changed from style it had before to a new changed style of hip hop.

Later, the daredevils made a track titled “Close to You” which was also a song with a love message and the fan base disassociated the daredevils from beef songs completely.

After “Close to you,” Marques was rarely seen participating in daredevils singles.

Could this be because the crew had adapted the change in the industry which most artists were using soft beats just to make a hit track and Marques was not comfortable with this? Nobody knows.

gd
still keeping the crew`s morale alive – GD

 

Gd later embarked on one soldier journey and released “Love is in The Air”. The song was soft and it made noise and still represented the daredevils.

Of course Marques did not take a role in the song but still it helped the crew to maintain their name.

Mukuti Cha? Came out when most of the rappers had considered themselves as they were in full control of the game.

That could be why daredevils had to show up with “Mukuti Cha

The song was a hit too despite Marques further revealing his participation weakness as he only did one verse yet the song had carried 3 solid verses.

Should people suggest he had no enough lyrics to have covered the last few bars he was supposed to spit? Nobody knows too.

It is true that it’s not the question of how many verses each one of them should have contributed in the song to regard it as a song belonging to two of them as a crew.

But at least he was supposed to have dropped equal bars with Gd since he had reportedly been shunning away from those previous songs which Gd did alone. Just a thought.

He also dodged “Chikondi Chikangoyamba” which Gd featured his cousin Zeze and it made noise too after its release.

Anyway, maybe Marques was busy with his duties at Joy Fm when Gd had spared his time to record the hit song with Zeze? Nobody knows again.

Time passed without daredevils releasing another song and people lost faith in their beloved crew thinking that was their end.

Its 2017 where every artist is busy starting off the year with a brand-new track and just as it was announced that the Daredevils were resurfacing with another song; people waited.

Surprisingly, just 2 weeks ago the track came out and Gd was alone in this track again when everyone expected to hear both of them as daredevils on this new joint, No Devils.

The big question the daredevil fan base has is that, has Marques gave up on the daredevil swag or he has just forgotten his fan base for a minute?

Malawi music team hopes to link up with Marques to hear his side of the story.

The story making headlines in town now is how an upcoming rapper known by his stage name, Kay Major was mercilessly pounded by Fredokiss`s fans for his Facebook posts that always targets the mtchana ya mu ghetto himself “Fredokiss”

major

The incident happened last Thursday afternoon when the victim, Kay Major was coming from school. It is said that two unknown boys were following him from behind until they reached at a quiet place where they dragged him somewhere hidden and gave him fists like those from karate movies.

Kay Major is said to have been on Fredo`s neck for a long time now over issues that Fredo considers himself as someone who comes from the ghetto and who has seen struggles like other ghetto mongers while he is not.

They are of course a good number of ghetto youths who go against Fredo`s rhymes that claims he is so ghetto to the extent that they feel like smashing their dear radios every time Fredo`s line claiming he is ghetto comes out from their radio speakers.

Ghetto king Kong, ankadziwa ndani Fredo adzashala ding dong”

“chimtchana cha mu ghetto chikushowa”.

ghetto brother getting six zeros on the figure”

 

Those are some of Fredokiss`s lines with the word ghetto repeatedly sang.

And since this is a free country where everyone has choice to choose what they want, there are also many ghetto youths whose hearts were shifted by Fredo`s beats, that they do not stand the challenge of not nodding their heads when they hear Fredo`s music.

That is why humans were created with different hearts, different faces and different everything, hence we have different preferences.

As the story was all over the social media, many were coming up with unverified information that forced the Malawi Music team to give Kay Major a platform to explain his side of the story.

“I was coming from school when two boys dragged me to a hidden place where they kicked me and warned me to stop dissing Fredokiss”

According to Kay Major, this has happened because he had earlier announced that he wanted release a beef song to Fredokiss, so he thinks the boys plotted this as a way of stopping him from doing a diss track to Fredokiss.

However, he is not 100 percent sure if the boys were sent by Fredokiss himself or if they are just Fredo`s dedicated fans who felt like dealing with him on behalf of Fredokiss.

After the incident, rumours circulated that the victim was in a critical condition that he was admitted at Queens Elizabeth Hospital. But Kay Major has denied to have been admitted at any hospital saying he only sustained minor injuries on his tongue, jaws and libs that he could not have needed medical treatment.

Fredo has been loudly heard in his songs that whoever disses him shall be dealt with his ghetto fans and sometime back in Levels remix he highlighted that if one tries to diss him, he will have to pay to the government of Malawi for that.

“odisa Fredokiss boma lidzilipilitsa”

That ironically meant that who so ever disses him shall face the consequences.

Just yesterday, February 19th, Fredokiss reacted to the story through a post on his Facebook page.

In his post, Fredo described himself as someone who do not know if there is another human being who exists on earth by the name, Kay Major.

When contacted to comment on the story, Fredo distanced himself to have been the one who sent the attackers by saying he do not promote violence.

” I don’t promote any form of violence. But if you touch fire expect to get burnt. I have spent years making way for these kids to be screaming ghetto in their songs, now they wanna take shots?” He asked.

Fredo continued to say, “There are rules to every game. However, i cannot diss any ghetto kid or upcoming artist because i cant destroy what i help build, Its like cutting off my own leg.”

After the issue circulated on social media, the victim`s Facebook friends floated on his timeline to console him.

Meanwhile, the victim himself, Kay Major has promised to revenge to who so ever had a role in the attack. He said he is not going to revenge physically but rather musically.

i will revenge with beef - Kay Major
i will revenge with beef – Kay Major

 

“I will revenge with a track, not with violence. I will announce the date on Monday,” he said.

All eyes are on his Facebook timeline to verify if he is really going to announce about the release date of his diss track to the ghetto King Kong.

He continued to say he is not afraid if after the diss song the attackers would be back to attack him furthermore because this time he is well prepared to whatever comes on his way.

“I am 100 percent ready for whatever comes,” he said.

The rap game seems to be on its climax now as we are witnessing more cases of this kind.

Veteran rapper known by his stage name young kay has reportedly been shunning away from shooting music videos of which he was featured in their audio versions.

The legendary rapper who dropped a killer verse in just released Dj Sley`s we run the city seems not to be comfortable in as far as the news of standing in front of the camera is concerned.

The last time mfumu ya madolo appeared in his own video was in Anankabango music video a couple years ago, and since then he hardly showed no interest of coming up with his other music video.

continues to ignore videos - young kay
continues to ignore videos – young kay

Just last year in December, a Blantyre based rapper “Heptik” released a song titled Zisakuwawe which features reggae artist Saint and of course the rapper in concern Young Kay.

After the audio, Heptik thought it was wise to push it further by shooting a video for it.

The video dropped yesterday but surprisingly Young Kay`s verse has been replaced by Macelba

Well, it is in its nature that people expect to see the faces of the very same people they first heard in the audio.

In this case then, it means something must have gone wrong, or should it be concluded that it is how the owner Heptik planned it to be like??? One would think.

A chat with Heptik proved that it was not in his plans to leave Young Kay out of the video. He said he did everything he could have done to shoot the video with Kay but all his effort went in vain.

According to Heptik, Kay was told about the plans of shooting a video but he ignored through unanswered calls and “busy” excuses the rapper was always giving.

i called young kay for several times but he could not answer - Heptik
i called young kay for several times but he could not answer – Heptik

“I called Young Kay for several times to remind him about the plans of shooting the video but he wasn’t picking up my calls,” he said.

Don’t think that Heptik`s number was  strange to Kay and maybe that is why he wasn’t picking up his calls. No.

Heptik revealed himself that he is friends with Yong Kay, he didn’t know what kept him busy to the extent that he could not answer his desperate calls.

He said, “Me and him are friends, but this time he treated me as a total stranger because that is not how friends treat each other.

“When I first approached him about the audio he was okay with the news and it was a nice recording session.

“He was punctual, he didn’t even demand any penny for his feature in my song,” He said.

Moves like these are likely to affect the hype of the song since the fun base expect to see people whom they heard first in the audio version and considering the fact that Macelba and Young Kay are two different artists with different fun base.

But to Heptik, this will not matter as he considers Macelba as a good artist with potential to build the song`s hype even more.

“The video is just good with or without Young Kay. Macelba is a good artist too so the replacement will not matter,” he said.

Previously, Young Kay avoided to take part in Blaze`s Nzakufunsira Chibale video shoot. The audio had Blaze, Gwamba and Young Kay himself but after he showed no interest of being in the video, Blaze`s manager decided to replace him with Mwanache.

Unconfirmed reports also indicate that it took Fredokiss`s effort to force Young Kay to show up in Zausilu remix video as he was playing hard to get. Through God`s mercy, Young Kay later was convinced and showed up on the day of shooting. The video also had Martse in it.

The reason is not yet known as to why Mfumu Ya Madolo treats fellow players in the game in that harsh way.

But without spitting many words, Young Kay is one of the legends in the game and will always be a dolo as he regards himself as.

Meanwhile, Heptic has urged fellow upcoming rappers not to force themselves into trying to work with big artists but to believe in themselves and their work.

“Its high time a lot of artists need to be independent. They should have self confidence in their work because working with big names is good for artists who already have names too and not an artist who is still on the growth stage,” he said.

Fredokiss released “Zausilu” quite a few months ago. The song pointed out major issues happening in society which simply piss him off because they are not supposed to be so.

Some say it’s somewhat a political song but we see it as a song that urges one to stand up for change in society and not take whatever that comes your way if it doesn’t make you happy.

Now the Ghetto President, announces the remix of this song which will be premiered with a video. He features hip hop heavyweights, Martse and Young Kay in this remix. We should all be curious to listen to the issues Martse and Young Kay will point out in this remix.

The video, shot by Sukez, drops this Friday, the 1st of July. Be on the Lookout!

Kunditcha Fredo is the studio album by Malawian rapper Fredokiss, released on May 22, 2012, on lo Budget Records in Blantyre, Malawi. The album propelled Fredokiss into immediate stardom rapper status and cemented him as a professional musician. It is Fredokiss’s debut album and his best selling album to date & its rated 5 stars on Malawi-Music.com by the people who like hiphop music and listened, downloaded the album.

This album is the only hip-hop album that’s not “urban-music” to be released in Malawi in the past 2 years. The album debuted at #1 on the Malawi Music Top 20 chart. Upon its release, which was at Shire Highlands Hotel, the album received generally mixed to positive reviews from most music critics, while hip hop purists felt his aims to be a crossover success had compromised the quality and complexity of his music.

profSpeaking in April 2013 to a noted Malawi Music Blog urban writer, Fredokiss described the background to the album’s lyrical themes: “Primarily I see myself as so much more than a rapper. I really believe I’m the voice for a lot of people who don’t have that microphone or who can’t rap. So I wanted to represent and tell the story of everybody who’s been through what I’ve been through, or knows somebody that has. I also wanted to speak about our lifestyle to people who – though they may live, say, in the ghetto and not be part of that world – still want to know about it and understand it.”

Several tracks on this album feature a rougher sound than the glossier Dare Devils production most notably produced by GD  beatmaker of the Dare Devils. With the exception of vit2 on “Nambewe” featuring Ace Dirty of which many people like the song because of the sample used from a famous Nigerian band.  This would also be Fredokiss’s first album to feature his long time friend hiphop legend Jolly bro.

This album contains some of the popular hits that are currently being played in Malawi, including the controversial “Ndikatseka Maso” (Watch video) and the club hit “Kunditcha Fredo” (Watch video). Fredokiss has recorded two videos for this album which are also available on Youtube.

Kunditcha Fredo album is currently on sale on Malawi Music for £10.00. You can also buy each of the songs for £0.99.
