Chavura, a Malawian hip hop artist spoke out his mind on the Urban Music People (UMP) awards nominations. He says the nominations are fake, and that’s why he can’t be nominated.
The Nyambaro CEO said this after it was realised that one of malawian hiphop artist, Martse, got missing on the list of Best Rap act, an hour after it was already announced that he was among the list.
Urban Music People Official page had the list of best rap act which included Martse on it. But after an hour, they posted another list on the same category, and excluded Martse and had Macelba replacing Martse’s position.
Chavura further said a lot of artists being nominated aren’t supposed to be on the list. But he gave respect to GD and Toast, saying they really deserve to be on the list.
Crooked Ink Photography, a Lilongwe based company started designing recently, and have T-Shirts self designed for sale.
They have different colours to satisfy consumers’ needs. Among colors there is black, white and blue. The front side of these T-Shirts is printed the Word “Crooked” in an enticing way.
Crooked Ink is comprised of 2 young, ambitious entrepreneurs namely Gift Fundani and William Mbeya. They are mostly into photography, but also shoot music videos. They are behind the “Zosatheka” Music Video by Vube, the “Chindekha” Star.
Their company started last year in June, and business seems to be growing little by little as their name is getting recognition. Upon speaking to one of Crooked Ink’s member, Gift, he said they aim at hitting international
markets with their products. “Our dream is to hit the international markets, and we urge Malawians to buy products made from their lovely country”, Gift said.
They also pointed out on heavy taxes they are regarded to pay to the government. William said the government should lower the taxes to make the Malawian products affordable. “Our government makes us pay heavy taxes, and this makes us rise prizes of our products hence consumers are discouraged to buy our products”. William added.
Vube dropped a music video for kokha which received positive response from fans. The video was premiered by Times TV and people started appreciating the effort which was put to make the video look nice.
VJ Ice is one of the people who did not stay quiet but talk about the video. He said the video is nice and that Vube is on his way up.
Kokha song, whose video was shot by Mest Media talks about a Girl who is so enticed with Vube. And that the girl keeps coming to Vube’s Place and that made him not resist the temptation.
Some people claimed that the song is a diss to a certain guy but Vube denied the rumour. Black Nina was interviewed by Joy Nathu on Made on Monday, and said Vube was after somebody’s girl, hence the concepto f kokha. Vube later denied Nina’s claims, and now he is saying him and the chilawe changachi hit-maker are cool. “kokha is not a diss song, and Black Nina is a good friend of mine. We sorted things out and now there is no misunderstanding.” Vube said.
Despite the diss rumours, the song keeps climbing ladders, and fans are liking the song so much. Vube thanks everyone who is there to support young talent and urges people to take urban music as a career.

Kapadocia Ziza has tackled issues concerning Social Weekends in Colleges, in a song: Social Weekend.
The song is basically talking about the lifestyle of College Students, most especially when it comes to socialising. “Social Weekend” is a song which is centered on how the students enjoy when they are having a good time to relax after School.
Alcohol is mentioned a lot in the Song, and how some people who were Alcohol-free start taking Hard Drinks in the name of Social Weekend.

This danceable tune was produced by Jazza from Lilongwe and Gaffar from Blantyre. It received massive response on Joy Nathu’s Radio Program called “Made on Monday”.
