According to Charisma whom Malawi music had a chat with, this project started in November last year and it has been five months in the making.

Charisma also disclosed that the mix-tape has not been produced by one producer instead a few producers had to put in their work for the perfection of the mix-tape.

The likes of Young LT, Snipper, Henwood, Chance, Seven and Vintage Studio put in effort in producing this 14 track Mix-tape.

This is the crew`s first mix-tape as they also do work on solo projects.

When asked what motivated the title of the mix-tape to be called Go Mad or Die, Charisma who spoke on behalf of the fellow crew members said their clique is known by madness hence that inspired the tittle.

“We are Madness Entertainment and what we do is always act crazy and people know us as crazy people. For that reason, we would choose death over madness if at all madness was to be taken out from us,” said Charisma.

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.

The newly released Tay Grin`s “Tola” track that everybody is talking of has really come on the right time considering the response the song has received so far in Malawi music store; a platform that allow artists to sell their music online.

The song, “Tola” which dropped on Wednesday 22 March, is a dance song which was produced by Malawian producer Sonye and it features a Tanzanian female star popularly known as Vanessa Mdee.

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.

The video was shot and directed by Picture Perfect.

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”.

twin m


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.

Proud, the music duo which comprises of two artists, Spyral and Solo Maze is set to release music video for the hot song Mrabolova that happened to be released in the hot month too, august last year.

The song`s title is controversial itself to the point that many do not know what it means and in what language is the song`s tittle.

Well, Mrabolova is a made up word from the phrase “Rub All Over”


The concept of the song is just simple despite the title being tendentious.

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.

“The song talks about rubbing the dirt people throw at your clothes, which is a gesture showing that no matter how they try to bring you down, you will stay happy and well,” commented Proud.

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.

Proud promises an Ep to drop soon that all their fans out there should be looking forward to hearing it.

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.

The urban music group Proud made their mark in the local industry when they released their video for the song Benzo mid last year. The crew received massive props from a number of viewers on the effort they put in to produce an awesome video being a crew that is self funded & not signed under any label.

The singer & rapper are now back at it with their second official video “Mrabolova” which will be released on the 22nd of February. Directed by Ben Bei who also happens to be the director who worked on their previous video.

proud and wongie mrabolova video

The crew was silent for most of last year after the release of the Benzo video having only released one single after it till now, which is Mrabolova, whose video is about to drop. People began to wonder what was causing the silence.

Speaking in an interview, Spyral and Solo Maze made it known that they had to take a bit of time out to put all arrangements & new strategies in place and that this year will be way different and people should expect a lot of singles & videos from the urban outfit.

Asked if they have any long projects in their plans the crew stated that they don’t plan on releasing any long projects in the near months but they have an EP titled “Kweza Voliyumu” in their plans, and will speak more on it once they begin working on the project.

wongie mrabolova video

Back to the main concern which is the Mrabolova video dropping this month on the 22nd. Mrabolova is a made up word taken from the phrase “Rub All Over” in the sense that if someone throws dirt at you just receive it and rub it all over yourself showing the person throwing it that you don’t care and won’t let it change your joyful way of living. That’s basically what the song talks about.

The audio was produced by Tricky Beats & Sticky Stacks. Video directed by Ben Bei.

The song Ndinakakhala judge came out with its controversies in the music industry that had led to causing debates especially among those that follow urban music in communications platforms like whatsapp, Facebook, Twitter and even in the streets.

This 2 minutes and 44 seconds song needs a sharp ear that is good enough to capture words and a brain deep enough to brainstorm concepts in as far as poetry is in concern.

Maybe that is why only a few people got what Suffix Ghambi was trying to mean.

In this song “Ndinakakhala judge” suffix tackled on different evil things happening in our society like same sex marriages, albino killings and of course he was also distressed with the havoc the Nigerian Islamist group Boko Haram caused not long ago.



At some point, he mentioned about being in the same song with secular artists and as well as attending secular music live shows.  “zomapanga feature ma secular artist munyimbo/ mkona ku show ya secular ine sindingapiteko”   he said.

Well, from only these two lines Malawi made stories that could be more than enough to have been  compiled to a whole full novel.

We have heard people saying Suffix was throwing jabs at someone, while others claimed those were just fair lines with no strings attached. The third party who had tried to reason but still couldn’t get through to the concept was just surprised and wondered if Suffix was still in his normal senses.

Why would he say he can’t attend secular shows yet we have been attending secular shows of which he was among artists to perform? That is the long term question that others had to Suffix.

However Suffix himself has blasted all those claims through a dialogue with Malawi Music .Com by calling them false claims.

He said Ndinakakhala Judge is a clean and a fair song and for that reason it has nothing to do with anyone. It did not target any gospel artist or secular artist rather it’s a song about a Christian who seem not to get the point as to why God is also being gracious to those people who engage themselves in evil works of Satan instead of destroying them.

He said, “The joint is in abstract form. It is about a Christian who is frustrated with what is happening in the world and questioning God why he seems not to be concerned with what is going on in the confusion like, why is God not punishing gays? If God really hates evil why is he overlooking the sins of humankind? But in the end, the christian realizes how sinful he is also and how merciful and patient God is with him.”

“Now he pleads with God that he should learn to be patient with others who are not saved yet.” Suffix cleared out.

Suffix described himself as one of those Christians who passed in the same situations where one would say he`s holy enough and still wonders why God is also being merciful with people who are taken by worldly things.

He said he`s had that feeling until one day his church pastor preached about it in their church and that inspired him to compose Ndinakakhala Judge song after he felt guilty.

He also testified that most of his songs are inspired by the preachings of his church pastor.

One of those is Exhibit A which is in the same EP with Ndinakakhala Judge.

Exhibit A is about Christians who kind of discriminate others due to their statuses, whether being financial status, family status and etc. He said by doing so, it means you are implanting laws into Christian life to protect you from associating with people of low profile than you are.

Just months ago there were rumours that Suffix and Gwamba had something that smelled like beef going on over Gwamba`s “Heaven” instrumental which was made by marques of the Daredevils with the effort of Suffix.

Gwamba was thought to have had beef with Suffix
Gwamba was thought to have had beef with Suffix

It turned out that Classic was the one who jumped on the song with the owner Gwamba instead of Suffix whom Gwamba had earlier communicated with.

Just this Monday, Gwamba released a new song titled “Ndinampeza” which features Suffix himself and secular rapper Martse.

In this song, Suffix tried to enlighten furthermore on his Ndinakakhala Judge Song through his first 4 bars.

He rapped, “Ndinakakhala judge, funny how ena samaimvetsetsadi/ ati zitheka bwanji gwamba, martse kuimba ndi suffix? / kumapeto kwa joint ija mkomwe kuli nkhani”.

According to the lineup of artists in the song one would be quick to judge that it was a deliberate move to cover all what has been said about Suffix and Gwamba having a beef, and Suffix not being in the same track with a secular artist whom in this song was Martse.

Here is what Suffix said about that. “The collabo has nothing to do with proving a point that I can jump on a joint with secular artists”.

“As an artist, most importantly as a Christian I have principals one being…I can jump on a secular artist`s song depending on the concept and my conscious as a Christian. I think I mentioned a lot of touchy issues in that joint for instance, Ndinakakhala judge ndikanaotcha ma gay onse and anthu ondisaiza. So I wonder why people freaked out because of that secular issue line’’.

He added, “This other day I was invited at a poly urban music show where there were artists like Martse,  Tay Grin and etc. That was before my tune in mention was released. Now some my fellow believers questioned my move saying, if it was them sakanapita  chifukwa sangaimbe limodzi ndi wa secular “

Meanwhile, Suffix has cautioned fellow gospel artists that they need to be careful with their moves and they should never fear to be who they are. He said People will always talk but if they live for their approval they will die from their rejection.

“Fame and money is vanity. Chasing the two is just the same as chasing after wind or running after the air because soon you might get tired and frustrated”, he said.

He has promised his fans to expect him to still represent Christ to the fullest and he appreciated those who showed him love and support since day one.

And now that he has cleared all the dirty people threw to him, I also have rest my case.

As you must have heard about the tune ChekeCheke Thwa by W-Twice that dropped in 2013.

Unless you don’t follow the ten commandments in the bible especially the ninth one that warned “do no lie” then you would say you have never heard about “Wadutsa Pompa” by the twins that came out just last year.

Well, that is old news now since most of you are living life in the fast lane.

The twins are back in 2017 and they have decided to top up their game by featuring the Zambian star Chimzy Kelly.

The Mwanakazi Nikumbuyo star is featured in this club banger “chaphwanya” a song that compliments how girls in the club have dressed, their looks and how they are shaking their body.

Champhwanya, produced by Chimzy Kelly is expected to be released on the 13th of this month.

Get your bundles ready as your ears  awaits to be entertained by the new sounds of w- Twice.

The sweet song Wadutsa Pompa that was brought into the world by the twins who regard themselves as W Twice has now turned to a bitter taste following its remix as it continues to break people apart.

The original version that features the Na Lero hit maker Nepman, came out last year and made noise in zinkhoswe and in weddings as it was the most requested song especially by women since it falls into a category of songs that one cannot restrain from shaking their body.

Anyway, the first version passed but due to the morale it had some female rappers couldn`t hold their patience but to remix the song.

Now that`s what have made me to drop whatever I was doing and jot a little something here.

In the remix, (Ndadutsa Pompo) we saw new names like that of Ewe, Danish, En Weezy, Kwin b and Fortune.

And so as the original version did made noise, the remix also did the same. One just can’t tell whether the hype was generated by the first version of the track but what matters is the noise it made.

The success of the remix brought in quarrels especially between Fortune and Kwin b as they were fighting over the ownership of the song.

 Fortune and Kwin b
Fortune and Kwin b

Well, that was not the first incident of that kind in 2016 because we also witnessed the same type of quarrel between two male artists who even went as far as throwing jabs at each other on social media over the ownership of a song.

What has now shocked people is that, the video to the remix (Ndadutsa Pompo) is out but one verse that belonged to Fortune is missing in the video.

It is evident enough to tell that this has emerged to be so as a result of their argument hence the verse has been trimmed purposely from the video.

Fortune, whose verse was cut in the video said the story emerged when Kwin b started attending TV interviews and spreading rumors as if the song was hers alone yet they had agreed to pay equally for the video to Platinum who shot it.

That made En Weezy, who also was in the song to declare that she will not pay the money she was supposed to pay following Kwin b`s selfish behavior.

Fortune continued to say, “I told platinum not to release the video until our differences are solved but he disobeyed by giving Kwin b the video behind us. He requested the balances we had left with him and after we paid he told us to go and sue anywhere else if we had complaints since he already had handed the video to Kwin b”.

“I blame it on Platinum because if he had listened to me this could not have happened”. She said.


i want peace - Fortune
i want peace – Fortune

“All I wanted was for us to work as a team of strong ladies…not selfish ones. I did not call the girls so that we should estimate each others fame. I wanted us to work together and make our fellow ladies proud of us, but what is this?? Zozimva kuti i am more famous than them, they are nothing to me, I will do this alone coz zinthuzo zathano mzomwe sindinagwirizane nazo.

She needed us kuti we should pay kwa platinum, after we paid mkumatipangaso chipongwe mkumaanamiza anthu kuti tinakanika kupereka olo one tambala”   fortune claimed.

The last time Kwin b was heard through a voice note on whatsapp that she was  to premier the video to her song Ndadutsa Pompo on TV stations.

In her speech, Fortune said Kwin b was not supposed to brag more about the video even if the money contribution issue was to be concerned because it was Ewe who contributed a lot but she chose to stay out of this.

claims ownership - Kwin b
Kwin b – claims ownership

Kwin b was also heard through whatsapp voice note saying fortune only had an idea but she did not know how to go about it.

Fortune concluded to say that she wants all the girls to unite and push music furthermore together. She said she has no grudges held against anybody.

However, Wiza of W Twice said this argument is just a waste of time since the song in mention is just a cover to their original song and none of the girls own the song.

the argument is just a waste of time - W Twice

“aah zimangondigwetsa mphwayi moti azipanga za tsogolo apa azingolimbana zanyimbo yakalekale”. Wiza said.

He warned that, them (W-Twice) can rise and take full charge of the remix too since it is theirs.

After he released his first mixtape “EASY” and a successful launch at Likuni parish hall last year in November, this year the Lilongwe upcoming artist Lil Vince is back! But this time around he has joined forces with “Zida Zoopsya” star Texam. These guys are currently working on a new mixtape which drops in a few months.

The mixtape is called “Lil Vince ft Texam & Texam ft Lil Vince”. It’s an 8 track mixtape but only 1 song has been released so far “Tea room” and next week Monday these guy’s will be releasing another banger from the same mixtape; the soon to be released single is called “Ankita Lokhande”. This is a pure good song which we just opt to appreciate the beauty of any beautiful girl around the world by nicknaming them Ankita Lokhande. Only if she’s beautiful though lol. Actually “Ankita Lokhande” is the name of an Indian actress who is very beautiful! And she inspired the artists a lot to come up with the concept.

After the release of the audio on 6th February 2017, its video will be shot, followed by more music videos from the same mixtape.

Be on the lookout and expect nothing but great and tremendous stuff from this mixtape! And remember not to forget to keep your bundles ready for “Ankita Lokhande”.
