As the country is still devising ways of annihilating the barbaric acts of murdering people with albinism in Malawi, many stakeholders have risen up condemning the acts. The entertainment world is no exception.
The newest voice of the line is that of gifted voiced afro-pop Mzuzu-Based artist, Bathro, government name, Mathews Lambulira who has assembled some of the city’s finest in condemning the acts.
In a song, Mantha, which is to be released in April this year, Bathro has collaborated with Alika, Royalstar, and Gremmar to voice out their calls for all and sundry to join forces in ending this misery.
According to Bathro, time has come for all people from all sectors of the society to join hands in ensuring that Malawians with albinism should live with a peace of mind as is the case with others without this condition.
“Why should somebody suffer just because of their body condition? Why are we being inhumane to our fellow countrymen? This is so unfair!” wailed he.
The song, Mantha (fear), uncovers the misery people are going through including persons with albinism, who are facing hell in their own motherland.
“In this world many suffer, the life of people with Albinism is like hell. But the sad thing is, we, the people, create hardships for each other. Our humanity and dignity is lost to the point that we can just kill each other for money.” sympathized Bathro.
Meanwhile, due to public demand, Bathro has decided to shoot the music video of Mantha later on in the year. According to him, his fans fell in love with his previous songs, Tanditole, Sizimatikhuza, and Mundileke to the extent that they asked him for a videoshoot.
“We are shooting the video and it is expected to be out come this April. It’s going to be released together with the audio,” he revealed.
Zephy Mista Oldies is the hands been behind the production of the song.
