TheirÂ album, Double Wowza, contains a track titled Moving up and that is exactly what Malawi’s former Big Brother Africa representative Lomwe and Botswana’s Zeus Game Bantsi are doing after their meeting in the just-ended chapter of the M-Net reality show.
The housemates have collaborated in a 12-track Afro-hip hop album which will be launched at Blantyre Sports Club on April 28 before moving to Botswana later this year.
While Zeus will be hunting for a second Channel O Music Award with this sizzling collabo, DJ Lomwe will be looking for a breakthrough on the international arena after spending almost five years of experimenting his musical skills with mix-tapes, namely, Rebel Music (2007), Rumours of War (2009) and License to Kill (2012).
During a cocktail party which he organised with the help of Cottman McCann Advertising at Village Green Garden Lodge in Blantyre on Friday in order to woo corporate companies into sponsoring the album launch, DJ Lomwe said he is ready to embark on a serious musical journey.
“My friend, Zeus, won an international award previously. But for me, this is a perfect time to put a mark on the international map after testing my music prowess with my three mix-tapes,” said Lomwe (real name Tendai Namate).
The 28-year-old said five of the songs were produced in Kenya and two in Botswana. They also features Young Kay, Theo Thomson and Kenya’s Nameless.
