“Love songs bring only positive vibes to people and as there are many troubles in the world it prudent to give people messages of love and music that will depress them.
“I started writing and composing the song while I was in the United Kingdom in July and it was in that moment that I thought of my brother Hyphen who I admire so much.
“I love his rap style and he is one of the best in the business and I knew with him on the song, it will be a hit,” said the Wife material hit-maker.
The Cholapitsa rapper explained that he is very happy with the way the song has has been received by the public saying he never expected the song to be that big and to receive such a tumultuous reception.

In a separate interview the soft-spoken Hyphen said he is excited that the song has been well received on the market and that a lot of people from all walks of life likes the song.
“I am so humbled and at the same time very honoured with the love that we are getting from people. It is always great to work with my brother Phyzix. We blend well on the songs we work on together.
“Signature is a love song with a strong message of love and its arrangement is an equidistant of soft hip-hop and afro-pop fused with a Malawian touch,” he said.
“We are looking at making a music video in order for the people to watch it on TV or mobile phones, laptops and tablets in the comfort of their homes,” added Mfumu Hyphen.
Gamba wa Suit, Phzyzix and Mfumu Hyphen sourced the services of smooth-voiced songster and top-notch music producer, Macia to sing the chorus and the hook of the song, making it more sweeter than Nchalo sugar with the incredible able hands of talented Stitch Fray and the magical Martin Angelz on the production decks.
