Malawi’s leading Hip-Hop duo Biriwiri has resurfaced on the scene with a music video “Kabichi” eight years after releasing their music video Pompo Pompo.
Kabichi released on Monday 20th March, 2017 is first single the duo of Zizwa and Kabuzi is releasing this year out of its yet to be released GREEN album.
Knowing fully Kabichi is first video to come out of the album project set to be officially out in June this year, the duo surely took time to prepare this one if quality and the concept are anything to go by.
The song is a blend of acoustic and modern rhumba rhythms set to signal the reemergence of Biriwiri. The video highlights a conduct of a houseboy who uses his boss’s status to date girls.
It will surely capture listeners’ attention not only with the chosen title and memorizable hook, but also with how the duo creatively arranged the lyrics.
“The song unveils some of good stuffs we have in store for our fans. It is part of the album coming out this June. We made sure we retained our style and signature in this song while blending in modern elements, and hopefully people will love it,” explained Zizwa born Ken Limwame.
The song follows two other singles the Hip-Hop duo released between 2015 and 2016, “MULENDO” and ‘OGODE’, both tracks off GREEN album.
