After coming in with the song that caused controversy in the music scenes “Legends never die” , the duo that irked the controversy of who is better between Old cup rappers and New school rappers, Bossaro Music Group comprising of Iceberg and cyclone have finally spoken out on the debates that are trending on the social media.

When speaking with Malawi music in an exclusive interview on of the duo Iceberg said it’s a surprise to him that people are using the song to spark beef between the new cup and old school ” I’ve heard those rumors and I’m yet to understand why people are pushing for that beef and using Legends Never Die as an example. Barry One on verse 2 says “Don’t get it twisted, new school is not the problem, you boys bragging and barking are the problem”. There is no “hate of new school” . At BMG we are against any whack attempts at hip hop whether you are old school or new school and we respect anyone who can spit whether they are old school or new school. But if any individual or group of individuals feel like dissing us and if it’s worth my time we were born ready with bars” he said.

Bossaro Ice: A reminder to the nation of how skilful we are. Pioneers! Legends! No matter who comes and goes no one can ever take that from us.

However the artist also added that bossaro Music Group came to alert all the rappers to raise their A-game ” To be honest Legends Never Never Die doesn’t target anyone in particular. It was something for the entire rap game. We want Malawian hip hop to progress so we decided to raise the bar. We want everyone to step up and give us great rap verses and songs. So if anyone is offended by the song I think that means that person realizes they are not on our level and needs to step up. As the saying goes “if the shoe fits, wear it” he revealed.

Furthermore partner to Iceberg , Cyclone said legends never die is just like any other song and people arent supposed to catch feelings over it “Legends never die wasn’t targeting anyone but still some people seem to have caught feelings. Somehow I think its not much about the song, they are just scared of competition because BMG is coming in strong” he added.

Bossaro Cyclone: We are ready to work with all people, those who classify themselves as old or new school, our aim is to push the industry

Still when contacted for quick response veteran musician also a celebrated television show Host Blakjak has called off beef rumours saying in Malawi artists use beef to gain  public symphathy and attention “There has never been Any diss in Malawi maybe save for Lomwe Vs Tay. The rest of these artists are just trying to use beef as excuse for their failed Careers or to try and push records. Far as am concerned, there’s no beef” he said.

BlakJak: it’s Stupid for people to always assume that! It was just about time we had to make music together and the only befitting title was “Legends Never Die”.

Legends never die song is believed to be the song that caused fury among the new artists and they went ahead to call old school artists irrelevant in the industry. Among so many artists that showed anger with the old school musicians are Excess, Toast, just to name a few.

Most of hip-hop fanatics may recall that Krazie-G a.k.a King Katakwe threw shots at Chavura in Dali`s Wallet song whilst Chavura was still under trap squad.

Dali`s Wallet had the likes of Gwamba, Martse and King Katakwe himself who targeted his two lines to Chavura saying, “Mkazi bwezi ukundiyankhula?/Ndikanakhala wa chibwibwi ngati Chavura?”

Krazie-G threw shots at Chavura in Wallet

Well, this never went too far as peace between Krazie-G and Chavura whom people consider as a stubborn rapper was still there.

A few months down the line, trap squad started disbanding as Stich-Fray and Sar Patricks took it to Facebook to announce they were no longer Trap Squad members which had meant that the team was left with two rappers, Chavura and the late Revolver.

Unfortunately, the team went completely down following the passing away of revolver who seemed to have been the Trap Squad`s joint as he was in good personal relationship with both members of the team.

Now that everyone took to their way and have the power to lead themselves where they want to be, Chavura has gone back to revenge the wounds he sustained in Dali`s wallet which were caused by Krazie-G

Through his Facebook post, Chavura who now calls himself Nyambaro disclosed that he only avoided to respond to what Krazie-G said in Dali`s wallet because he was still under trap squad and his fellow members advised him not to do so because it could have affected the whole team.

Below is what Chavura posted

Now Chavura seems to be ready for a battle with Krazie -G since he is 100% solo and no any other person can advise him on what to do.

Chavura is one rapper who is known by shamelessly talking what`s in his mind and he has for so long been criticizing his fellow rappers through his Facebook posts.

He has been attacking the likes of Gwamba, Martse and etc, but none of them ever had the courage to fight back.

Chavura – ready for war

The big question is, will Chavura survive if at all Krazie-G decides to finish what he started??

Perhaps he is well prepared this time since people have rated his verse in the newly released Olowelera remix as his best verse ever since.

On the time of posting this article, Chavura Came from nowhere with a new track which also has shots to Krazie-G.

This seems to be the season of beef as many artists have gone to war against each other.

Recently, AvoKado dropped his diss song to Martse titled World War 3, and as everybody knows, Saint and JAY JAY CEE are also at war.

JAY JAY CEE has recently dropped his beef to Saint called AK-47 following Saint`s Warning to JAY JAY CEE.

A week ago, Saint came to studio to talk about his song Delilah and of course his beef with JAY JAY CEE.

Jay Jay Cee and Saint are also at the battlefield

Be on the lookout for JAY JAY CEE`s podcast coming out today on

Just a reminder, Malawi music team is therefore not promoting any form of beef between artists but however respecting the role of communication it holds between an artist and his fan.

For quite a long time now some rappers have been throwing shots at Lilongwe based rapper, Martse in their lines over issues that most people do not know where they originated from.

Just a week ago, Avokado a rapper from the same city with Martse released a beef song targeting the Mtumbuka Wosamba himself which he called it world war 3.

In the song, Avokado who is blessed with hardcore voice went really hard on Martse up to the extent of mentioning his name making sure the listeners wouldn’t miss whom the beef was served for.

Avokado – says he wont quit releasing beef songs to martse


The song has since received people’s attention since everybody wanted to know what was tackled in it and how the beef story came about.

However, it has since been established that this is not the first song for Avokado to have thrown shots at Martse as he previously dropped another diss song to Martse which was titled Zawugalu.

Looking at Martse who seems to be doing well in the music industry at the moment, one would have a suggestion to say that Avokado wants people’s attention and fame, a thing that Avokado himself has denied after he was questioned by Malawi Music Team.

However he has disclosed that there are two reasons why he has been on Martse`s throat.

According to him, he disses Martse because they were once friends and later happened to split on some personal reasons which later led to beef.

He also said that he has been after Martse for another reason that he addresses upcoming rappers as unsuccessful and useless in his lyrical lines.

“In his view, Martse sees an upcoming rapper as an insect not someone who also has a potential to make it in life.

“In one of his radio interviews he told the host that his one T-shirt is more famous than most of upcoming artists……like really?,” questioned Avokado.

He insisted not to disclose what destroyed their friendship which was there in 2015 saying he will talk about that in his next song which will also be a beef to Martse.

According to him, he promises to stick to releasing more beef songs to Martse even though Martse don’t seem to come on surface with a reply.

He said, “A soldier does not expect a civilian to hit back once he has fired. I am not expecting him to reply rather I only want my message delivered.

(to the left) Avokado (to the right) Martse


He continued to say that Martse cannot serve him with a direct reply of a beef song.

He pointed out on how Martse frequently uses the word “Ka Hater” instead of just revealing the name of the person and how he keeps reminding his fans how big his name is in the music industry.

“Sometimes when your big you don’t need to be reminding people in each and every song you release because people already know otherwise it becomes a clinch,” Said Avokado.

For so long, beef music has been considered as a thing that contributes to the falling down of music industry since relationships between artists gets affected hence the target to take music on an international level gets disturbed as well.

Some people do not believe In this while others do say beef music adds in a flavor to the industry and so is the statement true with Avokado who also has the same belief.

He said, “In beef music, people want to out rap each other. It’s like I am better than you type of stuff and everybody works hard to improve which in the long run gives birth to quality and matured stuff”.

As for the Team of Malawi Music, Our work is to act as a bridge between artists and their fans hence we do not take sides when such stories have emerged.

Thank You

The Lilongwe based rapper Macelba mostly known by his catchy Chichewa flows is at it again in 2017 with another single titled “Apse Mtima”.

In an interview with Malawi music team,the rapper whose real name is Smart Banda said the song is just a reaction to whatever bad things and people who happens to come on someone`s way especially when that particular person is doing good.


“This is just a song with a simple concept which is like a reaction to whatever negativity that has to do with one`s life. Maluzi and even those people who do not feel good when they see you doing good Apse Mtima basi,” said the area 25 based rapper.

He continued to say that after this release, the song “Apse Mtima” will be made available in all different radio stations in the country hence people would be given a chance to request it at their own time.

The song has been recorded and mastered by the Lilongwe based singer and producer Janta at S.U records.

Just a few months ago, Macelba dropped “Mawa” which featured Nepman and the production was done by Dj-Sley of Chit Chat records.

Mawa proved its success as it still makes noise even up to now.

Mawa is one of the songs that people would relate to as it tackles real life issues.

Macelba a.k.a Akamuna

Macelba started seriously rapping in 2009 and he managed to put out his first hit single “Chosadziwa” in 2013.

His other songs include, Wina ndi Wina, Alamu anu and Mwala which was also produced by Janta.

Chosadziwa, Wina, Mawa and Alamu Anu were produced by Dj-Sley at Chit Chat records.

Among other artists, Celba has worked with Malaulo, Malinga Mafia and Bingolingo.

In Apse Mtima, Macelba has appeared 100% solo just like his other three songs, Chosadziwa, Mwala and Wina.

Macelba is one of the promising local hip-hop artist that people should look out for especially taking into account that every time he put out a song it turns into a bomb.

Just like his other previous songs especially Alamu Anu and Mawa, this new tune “Apse Mtima” is also expected to make noise that the above listed songs made.

Her voice really contributes to the sweetness of the song hence the reason why the song is selling like hot cakes on Malawi music store.

The beat starts off as a contemporary dance anthem with Mdee`s effortlessly executed vocals.

It then drops as the Nyau King himself goes in with his new Chichewa flow and traditional African drums kick in, expressing the character of the Nyau King.


The smash hit is filled up with three languages ( Chichewa, English and Kiswahili ) making it a song that can be listened to not only by people from one country.

Those that were born many years ago would relate to this song and taken back a bit as the song gives familiar phrases from old favorite rhythms , Bekeshu Bekeshu and Kantoletole.

The video of this song is another bomb. It was shot in South Africa by a  Nigerian music video director, Sesan Ogunro.

The overall camera work is superb and the shots are clean.

The Nyau King has been in the spotlight after releasing Chipapa last year, Kanda and Sugar Mamie which all these listed songs had at least an international feature.

The three songs were on free download on Malawi music site while Tola is for sale in Malawi music store.

The Nyau King is definitely  flying the Malawi`s flag international.

Jazmin is a female RnB artist based in Blantyre.

Her name might be not in people’s knowledge and she may be new in the music industry but according to a few songs she has released so far, one would tell with no doubts that Jazmin is the next big name in the Malawian Music industry.

Her love for music developed many years ago when she was still young as she used to do it as a hobby but later it turned into a career.

She used to listen to some of the respected RnB artists on the planet like, Tony Braxton, Céline Dion, the late Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey and etc.

One would find the above listed artists all in Jazmin despite her name being new in the industry.

Since Jazmin started seriously recording, she has managed to release 3 songs which are not just ordinary songs but instead they would be called “well cemented” songs according to the talent displayed on the songs and the messages the songs carry.

The three songs include, Malawi, You Are the One and the newly released My Heart Lied.

According to Jazmin, these songs will be put in her yet to be released album.

She is currently working on her album at Low Budget records with GD.

She hasn’t revealed the name of the album yet.


My Heart Lied is among the songs to be featured in her album.

In the song she talks about how her heart told her good & only good things about a certain man which later turned to be wrong, hence she blames her heart for lying to her.

Its a smooth RnB sound with a message most can relate with.

2016 has been a year of blessings especially to these two crews both comprising of twins, W-Twice and Twin-M as they made noise through a few singles they dropped within the just ended year.

Despite that the two crews are into different genres, they still seem to have the same type of fan base since their songs are mostly played in most similar functions like in weddings and in Zinkhoswe, just to mention a few.

Ma Twin


They made it to fame which wasn’t easy and nobody would argue on the fact that they also underwent hardships and other sort of drawbacks considering how other artists are struggling to make a name in the music industry.

These two crews seem to be on a competition in as far as making hit songs is concerned.

The crew, W-Twice has a hit single “Wadutsa Pompa” that features Nepman. It came out last year and made uncontrollable noise up to the extent of attracting a remix which is also currently making noise.

The same applies to Twin-M who also made a hit song titled “Pasa Ine“.

It also had a huge morale that was later boosted by another hit song from them called “Single” which features Black Nina.

Looking into all this, one would not deny that there is some sort of a competition between them.

Well, this article will give you the chance to know more about these two crews, W-Twice and Twin-M, and struggles they have passed through just to be on the level they are today.

W- Twice
W- Twice

Born from Mr. and Mr.’s Chimombo, W-Twice, real names Willard and Wilson started doing music in 2009.

Since then, they have been releasing songs which weren’t popular until in 2013 when they made their first popular song “Chekecheke Thwa” which featured Mr. P.

The Blantyre based crew which comes from Ndirande Township says they grew up listening to music and their journey in music was inspired by different artists including the Village Champion singer Dan Lu.

“That time we used to watch the then popular music show on TV, Music Splash,” they said.

Apart from doing music, they are students and they have wrote the just ended Malawi School Certificate of Education Exams and expects to enroll college very soon.

As part of hustle, Willard and Wilson Chimombo run a grocery in their neighborhood.

After being asked to compare or differentiate themselves from Twin-M, they said: “Twin-M are singers and we are rappers so we cannot be compared from each other.”

Lastly, they had to talk about the future ahead of them which they disclosed that its looking bright since more achievements are to come.

“We can see a big achievement in the music industry since we are able to differentiate ourselves from where we were and where we are now. The future is crystal clear; we can see ourselves somewhere in the next 2 years”.

Born as Aaron and Andrew Masauli, Twin-M used to sing in the church choir in 2004 before they started doing their own songs.

They made their first album called “Chimwemwe” but unfortunately it never took them anywhere so they decided to quit and went back to sing in their church choir in their home village Nkhotakota.

Whilst there, many people used to motivate them saying they can still do better on their own; that is when they went to Blantyre and luckily they got a deal with “Too Fresh” who started to promote their music.

The future started looking bright when they made their first hit song “Pasa Ine” under “Too Fresh”.

Twin-M revealed that they have faced so many challenges and some are still there even now.

“We have ever performed at shows without being paid and ended up walking on foot going back home from a show which we were supposed to be paid”, they said.

Aaron and Andrew are still doing their secondary education.

They stay in Blantyre, Baluti around Stella Maris secondary school.

They said they do not differentiate themselves with W-Twice since they are all musicians.

“We cannot differentiate ourselves from W-Twice because we are all music artists and they say music is message,” they said.

As the competition of making hit songs is underway, Twin-M will soon release another song titled “Ndidzingodyabe” following the release of “Chiphwanya” by W-Twice a few weeks ago which features Zambian`s Chimzy Kelly.

Expect more from these two crews, W-Twice and Twin-M in 2017.

This is just the beginning.

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.

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.

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.

Kelvin Sings came into the limelight after winning that car prize in E-wallet talent show competition in 2016.

The singer really had the potential with his soft voice despite the competition being turf as fellow competitors also had what it could take to have won that Nissan Tiida.

But since there is always one winner in every competition, Kelvin emerged the lucky person.

Everybody knows that when the fire starts, there`s a need to accelerate it further by putting in more firewood because otherwise it gets off.

That is exactly what Kelvin did as he released another song titled “Zomwe Mkazi Amasowa” just after winning the E-wallet talent show competition.


The single boosted his name furthermore to the extent that other artists spotted his talent and he was mostly called to do hooks for several known artists.

He worked with Young Kay, Barry One and was also called on Tsa Leo`s Nane Remix, just to mention a few features the singer was seen on.

Now that 2017 has just started with only a month down, every artist seems to be busy starting off the year with at least a new single.


Kelvin Sings is also among those as he has just dropped “Tingotengana” today.

Tingotengana is a love song which features a Lilongwe based artist, Janta.

The message in the song is just easy to capture in the way that it relates to real life situations that do happen every day.

Kelvin himself narrates it.

“It talks about a guy and a lady who have known each other for a long time and happened to like one another, but none of the two ever had confidence to reveal their feelings.

“So this time, the guy himself has had enough of the hiding games to the point that he has attempted to tell the girl what has been in his mind ever since.” Kelvin said.

According to him, the concept was generated by his friend who also underwent the same situation.

“I was in Lilongwe for a show with Black Missionaries. One friend of mine was their too and luckily the girl whom he had been hesitating to propose love to was their also.

“So on this day, my friend gathered his courage and went straight to talk to the girl about his feelings on her. That connected with the concept I had from way back and next morning I called Janta for a session and it worked.” Said Kelvin.

the song will take me to further steps – Kelvin Sings

The singer expects this song to take him to further steps since he has outlined that he will give it a full promotion it needs so that it paves way for other projects to come.

The video plans the singer has, will really help to boost the hype now that music videos are in fashion and the country has been blessed with so many local television stations.

Kelvin Sings is under a label known as Echelon Music and he testified that it’s through the label where he now sees his huge potential in the music industry.

Sit back and relax as your ears get mesmerized with the new song Tingotengana.

The message in ‘No fear’ is quite clear. Iceberg is back to prove a point that he still has it, he still can rap. If you are a keen follower of Malawi urban music then you may remember Iceberg from the group WuN which gave us ‘Mbina’.

Produced by Dare Devils, ‘No fear’ is a blend of rap and reggae dancehall. The rapper addresses fellow rappers from bar to bar in a typical Hip Hop fashion. He also officially introduces Bossaro Music Group which he has formed with Cyclone of The Basement.

Iceberg may not sound the way he sounded in 2007. He has grown and we expect his content to be matured as well. Yes, we know rap is about attitude and swag, but it also works when one portrays the maturity in the lyrics. Mind you, Iceberg is a certified legal practitioner, imagine if he could use his status and connects to push his music.

According to the artist himself, one of the messages that Bossaro Music Group is advocating is doing everything to the maximum and be the best at what one does. Being more than a boss means you are a Bossaro! Am sure these are the kind of motivational concepts that budding rappers are looking for.

The Desert Eagle feature adds flavour to the track; it somehow reminds me of Nas and Damien Marley’s Distant Relative album. A well blended rap/reggae dancehall is always good to musical ears. And being a hookless track, the transition of the beat keeps you attentive.

Iceberg and Cyclone is a killer collabo. This might be a Bossaro Music Group year, let’s wait and see.

It talks of rubbing off the dirty people throws at you; that it’s just nothing to stop you from enjoying your life and handling your business since people will always be there to spot your wrongs.

This is one of those songs that would make you stress free and wipe off your frustration.

Mrobolova is the second video from Proud following Benzo which its video was released in 2016 march and received airplay from most local television channels in Malawi.

The video was directed and shot by Ben Bei around Blanytre town and also in Ndirande, Sunnyside and Mandala.


According to Proud, the new video will help to build more fun base for Proud and help to create a way for other projects that the duo has in plan.

“We have plans to release new songs and other videos this year, so this video will help to pave way for those projects and place us at the center of mainstream in the industry,” added the Proud.


Proud started off their musical journey is 2015 with single, Thyola and later pushed further by releasing audio for “Benzo” as well as its video.

Spyral, real name Kennedy Mwenya handles his role as a rapper in the group while Solo Maze, real name Solomon Mazengera handles the hooks and choruses with his soft voice.
