Malawi’s top hip hop artist  artist Fredokiss, real name Penjani Kalua, has joined the UTM party as he wants to take active role in frontline politics.

The artist, who is son to politician Kamlepo Kalua, said he decided to join UTM because it is a safe space for new generation ideas.

In a statement, UTM Party has confirmed Fredokiss of join the party and announced that a ceremony to welcome the hip hop artist into its rank and file  is set for Thursday, December 31, at Zingwangwa Youth Centre in Blantyre.

The musician, who is a favourite mostly among the youth,  will be welcomed into the party by UTM vice-president Dr Michael Usi and party patron Noel Masangwi.

Fredokiss’ first experience with politics was last year when he contested for the position of member of Parliament for Blantyre City South on an independent ticket but lost to the incumbent Noel Lipipa of the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP).

Before joining frontline politics, Fredokiss had to relinquish his role as brand ambassador for United Nations Children’s Fund (Unicef)  and NBS Bank.

He has left  his other roles as British High Commission wildlife champion and United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) champion for voter registration campaign.

Like father like son. Onse amakhalangati, there favourite meat is matako. These are men without principles, crooks, thieves and con men. Can say and will do anything as long as they get something. A disgraceful family.

Despite being in rulling coalition, UTM lost in all by elections so far. Why would a normally thinking person join it?

A political maverick. He is his own father’s son. A man who is as politically rootless as his Dad. Somewhere there is a sword hanging over him the courts are yet to sort him out there is a five star lodge awaiting his tenancy. Papa Kamlepo was minister in the DPP so this baby Kamlepo will soon be able cabinet. UTM must rope in Baby Bakili so that he once again becomes the minister of Ung’ono-Ung’ono while Papa Bakili no more attends the court sessions for fear of over pushing the spinal discs
