Afro pop musician Dan Lu has cried foul over the leakage and piracy of his unreleased music, which has hit the market.
The leaked new music include Gwedezu, which is enjoying airplay in social joints.
Spot checks in some drinking joints in Blantyre’s Zingwangwa and Chilobwe towships over the weekend, confirmed the leakage of Gwedezu.
Dan Lu linked the leakage to the vandalism of his vehicle early last week.
“My car was broken into by some unidentified thugs. They went away with the car’s CD player together with a CD containing the unreleased music, among other things,” said Dan Lu.
He added that the incident happened after he parked his vehicle in Blantyre on his way from the studio to collect his new music.
Gwedezu and other songs on the CD were recorded by Tricky Beatz in Blantyre.
Asked about the implications of the leakage music as this reporter suspected a possible media stunt, Dan Lu said: “I took the music for final sampling at home. Fortunately, it was perfect and ready to go. But I don’t like the way it has found its way to the public because I was intending to sell online.”
Of late, Dan Lu has sparked debate in the social circles with the release of various pictures; including the recent ones in which he is seen carrying bundles of K1 000 and K2 000 banknotes on his shoulder.
In a related development, Dan Lu is gearing up for a concert scheduled for May 27 at AMadoda Braii and Restaurant, Woodstock Strand Street, Cape Town, South Africa. Dubbed Sweet Banana, the concert is powered by Sisqo Productions.
Dan Lu said he will perform alongside his Rockers Band and Tombo K.
