Good afternoon all„
Yesterday after posting a poster supporting the nomination of my big hommie Slapdee ,I wrote a comment that wasn’t very nice after I saw all the backlash he received .

Sometimes when people are hurt they say things out of anger that they do no mean and I have been guilty of this many times.I saw the error in the post and deleted it but by then it had already been grabbed and re posted.

I apologize to everyone for that comment as it was in bad taste.I started making music to make people happy and as an outlet for a kid who barely ever spoke his mind. I never imagined in my wildest dreams that this would come with any form of influence ,I just wanted to make some tunes!!The lesson is well and truly learnt ..I will take a small break from social media to regroup and think of my next step.All updates will be handled by team until I return…

I shall see you all soon..Peace and love

Rob

P.s the saddest part about all this for me is the big guy’s withdrawal..My biggest dream has been for the betterment of our industry,but all actions do have consequences and I hope he has a chance to go again ….

  1. What’s going on here. All these apologies. I am not a very keen follower of every artist but I do know they are currently in the Music Industry.

    I Don’t know all the facts. However, based on our current transitioning in our political environment it should be understood that the majority don’t care who they sing for. It’s their choice and right.

    This time around we want no political party to abuse systems. All citizens must be allowed the right of association. The important issue is that all politicians should be issue based and concentrate on ideologies instead of tribalism and hate speech.

    It’s a new season where you must be convinced that the party you support can deliver what the say and not them using stolen funds to bribe their way around.

    So musicians we need you. Be creative. Sing about the various issues facing the citizens. Expose some of these political leaders who don’t seem to have the country at heart. You will be surprised how much impact you will have.

    Do you know that advocating institutions are funded with millions of dollars to help them spread messages of Human Rights and governance issues. Do wait till 5 years to sing on governance. Money is there now available for you. In fact you don’t even need to belong to any political party to do this.

    I think there need to be train our Musicians on how they can manage their businesses of music and deliberately empower them to prosper. This industry has the capacity contribute significantly to the economic development of our country.

    So you Musicians be encouraged there is hope. Right thinking people know you were abuse. We are mature to understand and accept that it’s your prerogative to partner and support who ever you want. We don’t own you just like you don’t have the right to listen to the political songs we don’t appreciate. Nothing personal, we just agree to disagree but at the end of the day we’re still brothers and sisters. Simple.

    We draw the line where you participate in stealing from the Zambians. This one we will certainly be left to the law enforcement agencies to handle.

    Peace and love people. We all have choices and it’s okay that yours was not ours. We still have each our let’s focus on getting Zambia forward.

  2. Music is an art that inspires , educates and transmits information meant to create awareness on a number of topical issues. The challenge we have is that our musicians are creative and most of them are not genuine and consistency. Music is a powerful tool for communication and transformation. Musicians should invest time in research and get connected with reality in society and should not incline themselves to politics. They should also not be avaricious. Musicians were abused by the previous PF regime.
