Malawi’s veteran musician Lucius Banda who is also Balaka North legislature for United Democratic Front (UDF) has resurfaced with his 19th album ‘Crimes’ scheduled to hit the market next month.
Banda made the revelation through a facebook post seen by faceofmalawi reporter where he urged is fans across the country to support him in buying the new CD.
According to the artist, his new album will contain 13 tracks.
“If I didn’t have children on this earth bwenzi ndikumangoimba nyimbo za love to love, and kiss to kiss, And enjoy being loved by everybody, being given business by government the biggest customer for every product in malawi….. But I would like to leave my children in a better Malawi than this. So yes I will still talk about those issues that some of you love to hate…..
“Malawi get ready now CRIMES ALBUM IS READY FOR RELEASE AUGUST, DATE WILL BE ANNOUNCED SOON.
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE CHONDE….MUCH AS YOU CAN GET THE MUSIC FROM YOUR FRIENDS BUT FOR THE SAKE OF SUPPORTING ME PLEASE PREPARE TO BUY A CD just to support me,” reads in part the statement.
Throughout his music career which has lasted over two decades, Banda has been a critic to almost all Malawian governments played a role of being a voice for the voiceless.
But after releasing his 18th album which was titled ‘Thank You’ in 2015, everyone thought that he has given up the role of fighting for the Malawians.
The 19th album seems to revive the real soldier that Malawians used to know in the past years.
