DARLINGS,
FIRST TIME I HEARD A ZAMBIAN SONG IN EUROPE WAS APHIRI ANABWELA, BY PITCHEN KAZEMBE (DONT KNOW HOW TO SPELL IT). I HAVE LOVED THAT SONG AND IT IS THE RING TONE ON MY PHONE. I DONT THINK I WILL EVER STOP LOVING IT. THAT IS A SONG AND HALF. ANOTHER SONG ALL MY MUZUNGU FRIENDS LIKE IS BANA MULENGA BY PONTIANO KAICHE. ESPECIALY: " MAFIGA ENU MWAKWATWA BANA MULENGA, NA ECHI YE YE YES BABY. I LOVE PAUL NGOZI TOO.I LOVE KMILLION , EFRAIM,RUNEL, JK,EXILO,HAMS,MOZEGETA AND ESPECIALLY TSOYA, AND MANY MORE OF TODAY'S ARTISTS, BUT HOW LONG THEIR SONGS LAST? IT IS WESTERN TYPE MUSIC, NICE BUT I FEEL THEY SHOULD DO AT LIST ONE TRADITIONAL SONG IN THEIR ALBUM. ATLIST. I FEEL ANGELA NYIRENDA'S SONG WILL LAST MUCH LONGER THAN
BECAUSE IT IS TRADITIONAL.
WHAT MAKES A SONG GREAT IS THE ABILITY TO BE POPULAR OVER TIME AND ENJOYED FOREVER.
HOW LONG DO THE SONGS PRODUCED TODAY LAST? A YEAR AT BEST?
MUSIC IS MEANT TO MAKE PEOPLE ENJOY THEMSELVES. IF IT MAKES U HAPPY A SONG IS OK. BUT DOES NOT MAKE IT GREAT. ALSO DONT CALL A SONG RUBBISH, JUST SAY I DONT LIKE IT , BECAUSE MUSIC IS VERY SUBJECTIVE,
ONE MANS POISON IS....
ANY ONE AGREES WITH ME?
BUT PLEASE DONT ARGUE JUST FOR THE SAKE OF AN ARGUMENT OR BECAUSE UR BOSS TOLD U OFF AND U CANT TELL HIM OFF IN RETURN, AND U WANT TO QUAREL WITH SOMEONE. UR OPINION IS IMPORTANT US LONG IT IS RELEVANT AND GENUINE.

Muzungu, it's yaye chiyeyeye (or more correctly, yaya ichiyeyeye).

Do you know what that pontiano song means? What's mafiga?

CHAMA, are you sure?? I too, did not know the "yaya ichiyeyeye" bit, but I will believe you because you sound believable. I don't know what's mafiga, either. I'm thinking the plural of 'figures'.

Miss Muzungu, are you sure? aPhiri anabwela is one of my favs too. Are you trying to tell me you and me are soul-mates?? That was a joke, OK? How about that Paul Ngozi? I just love his music as well. His 'mulandu wa damage'. I have it on my laptop. I listen to it every time I feel homesick. I like how the percussions follows the beat after, "mwasebanya baaaaanja..."

The very first time I shook Paul Ngozi's hand was late 1988, at some store in Chelstone. He died within a year of my encounter with him. I’ve always hoped he didn’t die from my hand shake:)). I have no idea what kind of human being he was. I love his music, though and I adored him for the one and only time I met him face to face. He was so down to earth, and even asked me if I needed a ride. He was driving some posh car then. I said, no thanks because I had never driven in no posh car before. I was afraid I might go catatonic in Paul Ngozi's posh car :)

DARLINGS CHAMA AND CHEMBE,
IF I AM NOT MISTAKEN MAFIGA MEANS NICE ROUNDED AFRICAN (HA HA HA ) BAM BAM.I ALWAYS ASK THINGS TO BE TRANSLATED TO ME. HE WAS ADMIRING HER DOUBLE DECKA OR REAR END.LAST TIME PONTIANO WAS PERFORMING THIS SONG (3 WEEKS AGO) AT MIKES IN CHILENGE I RAN TO THE STAGE AND STARTED SINGING WITH HIM, HE STOPPED SINGING AND LEFT ME TO SING ALOAN.(HE IS A FRIEND) PEOPLE WERE SHOCKED. THERE I GO AGAIN DISCLOSING WHO I AM.SO EASY TO GO TO MIKES AND ASK WHO WAS THE MUZUNGU SINGING WITH PONTIANO.
DARLING THERE IS NOTHING WRONG TO BE ONES SOULMATE. IT DOES NOT MEAN U ARE MY BOYFRIEND, IT MEANS JUST PEOPLE ALIKE.
I REMEMBER PAUL NGOZI'S CAR: HE HAD A BLUISH GREEN DATSAN 120Y AND THAT TIME IT WAS POSH.
GOOD OLD TIMES. I HAD JUST COME TO ZAMBIA. NICE MEMORIES

Muzungu,

You are a piece of work! Most of the insults? Lol!


Wilansekesha means don't crack my ribs from laughter - its evident African languages are richer, see how one word translates to so many in English.

The song was "talala wila lila" - i think, if am not confusing with another, means Hush, dont cry

DARLING ABOUT THE INSULTS I AM VERY SERIOUS. I AM SURE I KNOW SOME U DONT EVEN KNOW.
I HAVE ONE WITH WHICH I INSULT PEOPLE WHO CALL ME MUZUNGU WHEN I AM PASSING.
I HATE IT.
HOW WOULD U FEEL IF U ARE PASSING AND I JUST TELL U: UUUUU BLACK.
ANYTHING TO DO WITH COLOUR IT IS A RASIST COMMENT.
NOT THAT IT IS ANY THING WRONG TO BE BLACK OR WHITE.
MY EX TOUGHT ME AND JK AND LEO AND EXILO AND LEVEY SAKALA AND ALL THE REST. THEY ENJOY IT.ME TOO.
U KNOW WHEN A FOREIGNER GOES INTO ANOTHER COUNTRY THE FIRST THING THEY LEARN ARE THE INSULTS.
AT LIST U KNOW IF U ARE INSULTED.
THATS NOT THE SONG. THE SONG STARTS WITH W.... AND IT TALKS ABOUT HIS CHILDREN. I THINK HE NEW HE WAS DAYING AND WROTE THE SONG.

Yes Miss Muzungu . You are Nelly the lady who sang that Bemba song were you were complaining about this man (Zambian man) and and it used to come on ZNBC. I can not remember the song though.

Ackim Simukonda is the one who sang a song cautioning his children to live as one even if he had them from different women. He sang as if he knew that his time was up. The song is Bana Bandi.

i agree with you bro in toto. today's music performed by a majority of the zambia artistes is simply about sexual affairs, heroworshipping especially of a woman, and the like. its just proper trash, doesnt make much sense to many of us who grew up in those fine years, before the 80s. some of the issues mentioned in much of the lyrics can never be real, its all duping and hollow, fake and childish.

of course there are a few other musicians who dedicate alot of their time, skill and attention to composing their stuff which make good sense. an example is pettersen's 'ku toping'apo' which is an excellent piece on his perception as an artiste, of how tricky and hard life has become not only by zambia's standards, but across the globe.

your critical and well assessed view bro is as good as any reasonable average zambian is bound to make. cheerio!

I read some gossip about a certain female Zambian singer whose claim to fame is a song titled “mtima wa kanyelele”. Supposedly she was the ho of some 60 years old sugar daddy until he dumped her. Now she wants him to buy her a house. Does anyone know the lowdown to this sordid affair?
