A new kid on the music industry Mike Akitivi (born Mike Yasini) has released a video praise campaign song for the incumbent Malawi President Joyce Banda ahead of May 20 elections.
The video song, entitled ‘Joyce Banda Mpatali’, is uploaded on Youtube and is currently circulating on social media platforms such as Facebook.
The song commends the President for the various achievements she has made during the two years she has served in office.
Banda took over office from late President Bingu wa Mutharika who died on April 5, 2011 after succumbing to a cardiac arrest.

The youthful Akitivi, who is just venturing into the music industry, among others, is praising President Banda for providing Malawians with good shelter, cheap fertilizer, cows and also capital to start businesses.
He told Nyasa Times in an interview he was persuaded to do the praise song after that noticing developments being currently done by Banda are “just too good”.
“To be honest am impressed with JB style of leadership so let me say am sympathizing with her and her Peoples Party,” said Akitivi who is studying in Ireland.
The praise singer said the ultimate achievement also lies on the freedom Malawians are currently enjoying today.
“The most important thing that people might overlook is the freedom which started disappearing during the previous regime; you and I remember very well how people were being killed willy nilly,” Akitivi told Nyasa Times referring to the killing of a fourth year Polytechnic Student Robert Chasowa who was found in a pool of blood at the campus during the DPP regime.
He added: “all that is gone because JB has brought back the freedom”.
He also applauded Malawi Broadcasting Corporation Television (MBC-TV) for opening up to opposition parties which was not the case in previous regimes.
“Gone are the days when MBC TV was only meant for ruling party, today a day or two can’t pass without an opposition figure appearing on a state television-that is good development,” saluted Akiviti.
He also singled out the fight against maternal death [Uchembere wabwino] projects and the upgrading of Kapichila Hydro Power Station as other major achievements.
However, he claimed he was not a Peoples Party supporter but only trying to appreciate the good deeds of JB and her party.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
