Hip-hop star Fredokiss, real name Penjani Kalua, is back into serious music after his stint in politics. He has since released a single titled African Bride.
The song, which features Lilia, Temwa and AK, celebrates the beauty of an African woman as well as the African continent.
“I wrote the song after being inspired by the beauty of our women. It is an appreciation song,” said Fredokiss, popularly known as Ghetto king.
He said though he was occupied with politics for the past few months, he never really stopped doing music.
“Even during the elections period, I was performing,” said Fredokiss.
The video of the song has already been aired on Trace Africa music channel on DStv.
In a letter The Nation has seen, Trace Music Channel official Ntokozo Botjie wrote: “Please note that the video has been accepted. It will be playing on Trace Africa.”
Fredokiss said the video has gone through all the scrutinising processes at Trace to be played.
Locally, the song and video were released this morning.
Shot on the beautiful beaches of Cape Maclear in Mangochi, the video was shot by Ron C and directed and edited by VJ Ken. The audio was produced by AK and Tricky Beats.
Reacting to the song Ju Chapomba wrote on Fredokiss Facebook page: “I remember in 2016 talking with you and you said one day your videos will be on Trace. This is the one day…God is good my brother.”
Another fan, Mada Kay, wrote: “This is amazing. You are still keeping us on the map about music. May God still give you a humble life. Don’t ever try to fight or answer back at your enemy. God bless you Fredo Penjani Kalua.”
