Blantyre based hip hop artist Mandela Mwanza also known as Third Eye will on Independence Day release five singles on www.malawi-music.com for free download to social media users as an appreciation to heroes who fought for independence.
In a Facebook interview on Wednesday afternoon, Third Eye said the singles up for release are Umsindo which features Swaziland’s Mpumi Dhlamini and Zeus, Walk Tall, Won’t Bother, Calabashes and Winds of Change and Sounds and Experience. He said they are part of the songs making his upcoming album titled Third World Citizen.
“I want my fans, especially the youth, to celebrate with me Independence Day, by accessing my new hits and take them as recipes for their partying. Many youths are on Internet and I know giving them access to music through Internet would help them listen to the messages in the songs,” said Mandela.
Produced by a Jazz musician Mpumi Dhlamini and recorded and mixed by German artist Frances Moller at the South African music studio called Post Office Productions, the hits according to the artist centres on the untold story of a Third world citizen dying to be free and leaves a lot to the listeners’ imagination.
“As soon as this Third World Citizen is economically free, people will know the type of independence I’m advocating for young Malawians,” said the artist.
He also revealed that he is finalising working on other hits in the album and will officially release the album in CDs,
tapes and DVDs in three months time.
