The newly released album Utitsogolere Ndiwe comes amidst the proliferation and gagging of artists speaking their minds on the ongoing political woes.
The title track, according to the Rastafarian, questions the leadership, if they are the best to be at the helm.
“It is my duty as a musician to point out the way. It is my obligation as an artist to instruct and entertain. I am going further, using music to spread God’s word and a message of love and hope,” Ras Afick said.
The tapes are already on the market and the videos are enjoying airtime on AFJ-TV. CDs and the DVDs will be out by March.
Coming in reggae and dancehall, the album has songs like Sindifikako, Kodi Ndiwe Rasta, Mkazi Wachikondi, Mzinda Wokongola and Neighbour.
Notable artists who tackle political themes include Lucius Banda, who quit partisan politics in 2010. Last year, he released Life which criticises government for messing up democracy and the economy due to glaring dictatorial tendencies.
