After releasing his debut album in 2009, Malawi’s controversial dancehall artist Mafunyeta has bounced back with his second album, Ruling.
Mafunyeta, whose controversial lyrics in the debut album Timakondwa earned him a ban on government broadcaster MBC, said he has finished recording the 18-track album.
He will hold a double pre-launch show at Chez Ntemba on March 2 in Malawi’s capital, Lilongwe.
“The album is more matured than the first one. In this album, I am tackling real issues in life, including politics, and fans should expect fireworks. I have not [departed] from my funny style and dirty lyrics because that makes me Mafunyeta in the music industry,” he said.
He said he foresees other songs from the album being banned again on radio stations as was the case with his first album.
The album has two gospel tracks Who Can? and Jah Jah.
The other songs are Ndidya Mwendo, Matafale, Dziko Lathu, Vendor, Mkazi Wati Chani? Wawona Iwe and Kamwana ka Form One.
In Dziko Lathu, he confesses that Malawi is a country of milk and honey, but a bad State for consumption.
Ndidya Mwendo is another controversial track.
The album has featured artists such as Tigris, Lisa Kapita and Mady Doctor.
It was recorded at BFP Exclusive Studio, Chit-Chat and SU Recovers.
