Gospel rapper Suffix has released a new song titled Misozi in which he talks of pain resulting from the loss of life to Covid-19.
In an interview, he said he recorded the song after seeing the devastation that Covid-19 brought into the life of his close friends. One friend lost an uncle while another lost both parents to the pandemic.
“These deaths and my friends’ reactions were an eye opener to me. Malawians are in pain. Covid-19 has brought so much suffering and pain and I just wanted to acknowledge that in my new song,” said Suffix.
He said after the experience filled him with fear about the safety of his parents, siblings and friends.
“So, since music is my outlet, I decided to write a song and pour my feelings into it,” said the rapper.
The artist said this is the first time in his generation to witness so many deaths at an alarming rate.
“Worst part is that these are not just statistics, these are people we know and love. So, in my new song I wanted to talk about what almost everyone is going through so that we can relate and have hope,” said Suffix.
He has, therefore, assured his fans that although pain is real, so is hope.
“God is good even though life is hard. Let’s stay safe and keep checking on each other,” said Suffix.
The song in part goes: “Wagwa mzati, wagwa mtengo, dziko likupita kuti, wina andiuze, we are in the morning but there is no joy,
The warm heart is gone,
Yeah, yeah, this is crazy Lord, moyo sungaphweke kodi
Its heavy Lord chonde tituleni takanika ife kusenza tokha….”
The song features songstress Esther Chitheka-Lewis.
