As days for the highly anticipated Transformation Alliance (T.A) National Conference draw closer, a Chancellor College graduate Fungai Mutsinze has stepped in to drum up support and raise the hype of the conference with a theme song outlining the concept of the political movement.
In his seven minute song, the upcoming artists who is regarded as one of the countries gifted artists narrates numerous problems that have rocked the country such as perpetual electricity black outs, nepotism, corruption among others.
Mutsinze has therefore called upon all Malawian citizens to change their mindset and wake up to reclaim their destiny.
In the opening stanza, Mutsinze sings: “as malawians, we seem to know only where we are coming from but sadly have no clue of where we are going”.
He suggested that even those who think they are wise enough seem not to have answers to many questions that ordinary Malawians have.
Mutsinze also sings against the bad habits of political leaders who practice tribalistic tendencies and selfishness as well as corrupt minds.
The musician went on to sing in different local languages like Lhomwe, Sena, Tumbuka and Yao as he ends the song with an emphasis on the need to change now for a better Malawi which happens to be TA’s slogan of “Nthawi ndi Ino, Malawi Amene Tikufuna” (Now is the Time, The Malawi We Want).
The song has since been adopted as an anthem for TA and it is currently being used in its promo for the forthcoming conference to be
held in Blantyre on August 25.
Commenting on the song, TA Spokesperson Leonard Chimbanga said the song is a reflection of reality on the ground.
“Fungai has done what we would urge every Malawian to do in his or her own way and skill to ensure that the message of anguish and despair among Malawians is amplified and heard so that together we explore ways of solving these problems” said Chimbanga.
“The guy has a visual challenge but he has proven in this song that he sees more than many of us do” added Chimbanga.
Coincidentally, Fungai’s route of further studies is a Masters degree in Political sciences.
Currently, the song is trending on social media and some local radio stations.
