The Dare Devils, a hip hop duo of siblings Marcus and Graiton Pas anje, is back with a debut album titled Dare Devils for Life. The new album comes after a long silence since the duo hogged the limelight for years with singles and a mix-tape.
The duo, which is also respected for being among the finest hip-hop producers in the country, says it took a break from releasing music to concentrate on school, family matters and other work-related issues.
“We couldn’t sit down and work while too busy. Music is spiritual for us so we waited for the right time spiritually,” said Marcus.
He said the album is purely by The Dare Devils with no collaborations and featured artists as they wanted to give their fans a raw Dare Devils experience.
“But we have guest appearances and our fans will check them out when they buy the album,” added Marcus.
He said the album is motivated by personal experiences.
“We have gone through so much growth-wise, physically, spiritually and emotionally. So, when we do music, we take up those forms of energies and combine them,” he said.
In a separate interview, Graiton, popularly known as GD coined from his names Graiton Dauda, said the album was produced by the brothers themselves.
Expectations were that music labels, either Ghetto Ghutter or Its Only Entertainment, would release the album, but according to GD, the album has been released independently.
“We have a great relationship with Ghetto Ghutter [of Fredokiss] and Phyzix of Its Only Entertainment. But we are an independent outfit and this album has been released as an independent enterprise,” he said.
GD said once the Coronavirus pandemic is under control, they plan to tour Malawi, shoot videos, sell their merchandise and hopefully go global with the Dare Devils brand.
Currently the Dare Devils are selling their album at K5 000 digitally through Mpamba on 0888399770, Airtel Money on 0994195313 and National Bank Mo626 through account number 242055.
