The problem, is that every song in Malawi sounds like Kwasa kwasa and is danced to, like kwasa kwasa. The so called “Rap groups” are so shallow. They lack depth and creativity- same with other groups.
They are all like Kwasakwasa contemporary musicians. I would like to urge all the artists across the music spectrum to try to distinguish Rap, R&B, House, Raggie and other genre`s from each other.
They need to observe the best in other countries and learn how they can use their creativity to make in rods based on the music type.

Inu ingozisiyani izi. Malawians are failures. Talk of football, music, journalism, Writing etc there will always be Malawi black out. CNN Journalists of the Year, BBC Journalists of the Years, AAMA, Afrimma etc these are just far fetched dreams to Malawians. It’s a country of mediocrity, all they know is government this and government that day in and day out.
