Good people, what’s danceable about rumours of federalism, a proposed breakaway some loudmouths call feudalism?
We are told northerners want to become a near-autonomous region or State with not much to beg from a shared government. So it is said unto lay minds—not the fat state-sponsored comedians who instigate chiefs, religious leaders and vendors to constipate our ears with ‘no fyudolism” vibes.
Almost a storm in a cup of tea, the fyudolism jam has seemingly some scared executives wetting their suits as if the region seceded the day those haranguing about being sidelined in development and public appointments stopped snoring.
But here is the whole truth: We, in the entertainment sector, are yet to join the chorus of fyud0lism or studio sessions of secession.
The region has long been entertainment-starved, but its people never walk alone. At least they have friends in some artists who matter.
Chief among the celeb friends of theirs is bestselling musician Skeffa Chimoto who launches his Chikondi DVD at Key Lounge in Mzuzu on Friday—a first!!
This is the second time the jamming machine is in the North for the past three month, a feat only rivalled by Soldier Lucius Banda.
Call it equitable distribution of shows. This week, Skeffa talked about the needless starvation of the North without mentioning fyudalism or secession.
“Mzuzu is part of Malawi and there is nothing with us launching our productions there,” said the man of songs.
“Entertainment is scarce in the city and people are excited to see us, but they are not supposed to miss or worship us. They are our people. Why do we forsake them? I am trying hard to champion a change of mindset because these people make us what we are. During my shows, I always take time to interact with the fans because I want to bridge the gap. At times, I have gone as far as performing in Chitipa because they are our people.
You cannot say a horse words better than its mouth. I hope some artists will borrow a tune from Skeffa. The North could be dancing to fyudalism because better vibes are scarce.
