Below is the piece of writing he wrote about Trap Music here in Malawi.
“I’m open about my hatred towards trap music. Ndipo amwene I hate it. Not only because of the mumbling that we usually hear as song lyrics, zimene zija bola, zimabhebhaso pena, but because it’s inspiring ana abwino bwino to live a fake life just to trend on social media.
Inetu chabwino ndine otsalira chifukwatu nde osanama trap ili paliponse. And everyday artists and producers are sharpening their trap art osanama, ma hit songs nde tikuwamva.
And we can actually find a replica of almost all trap artists and Producers in the USA here in Malawi. And clever ones are even fusing trap with some local vibe (kusampula) just to have some sort of wider appeal. And zikumathekadi ndithu; we are hearing ma 808s muma old songs a achina Patrick Tung’ande ndi Cos Chiwalo. Lol.
To lead in the trap music arena you simply have to be crazy (literally), you have to be popping pills and syrups that most of our public hospitals are probably lacking, you have to have atleast a tattoo or piercings on your body, tint your hair or have locks and still tint them anyway, kuchititsa manyazi ma rasta), adopt a weird dressing (of big shoes and tight ripped pants and beach shirts, lol) , Eish ine ayi bolaso nthawi ya pasada ija”
