The poem, “Mwanakazi nikhuluku uyu” (she is a crook), which has been released today on the 22nd of May 2020 addresses real life issues lovers face in their day-to-day marital lives.
According to the poet, born Yona Gondwe, Mwanakazi nikhuluku uyu was motivated from a real-life experience of some lovers within his locale.
Yona further adds that the couple in question lot its bond when the female soul of the relationship started ‘misbehaving’ having got enrolled with some tertiary institution.
“The girl started involving herself in extra-marital affairs forgetting her boo back home,” he reveals.
From Yona’s observation, a lot of girls tend to change colours once they upgrade their social statuses.
“I’ve observed that most ladies tend to switch cadres once they have changed their statuses be it academic or social. In the end, they ‘discard’ their previous relationships,” worried Yona.
As one way of promoting the poem, the Malawi Institute of Journalism alumni says he’s used a battalion of fellow artists like comedian Nyauyu, Sparta and Professor Chisi, recording music artist, Zephy Oldies, singer Wakisa James, and others in wha he’s dubbed “Social Media Campaign On Mwanakazi Nikhuluku Uyu”.
Another exciting package is that “Mwanakazi nikhuluku uyu” has been will be jointly released with his poetry video “Kamwari”.
Chawa Beats of Excel Music is the brain behind the poem’s production.
