Veteran musician, Lucius Banda has attributed the fast growing technological world to piracy saying it has become very easy for culprits to make copies of their music.
The artist also known as the soldier of the poor complained on his Facebook page saying back in the days when there were only cassettes, artists used to enjoy the fruits of their work.
“Back in the days when we were using tapes, when one recorded a tape the sound quality was very poor so people had to buy an original to enjoy our music,” he said.
He added: “We managed to buy cars and build homes from proceeds from selling the tapes among many other things.”
The musician also complained that nowadays even live shows are not that viable because a lot of people want to get in free of charge and that according to him the industry is dying.
He then sent a plea to Malawians to remember their musicians and support them.
Lucius Banda has recorded 18 albums ‘Thank You’ being his latest which came out last year.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
