South African-based Malawian afro-pop duo, Sam & Eddie have just released a song, “Timuyamike” a litany of love and appreciation for God amid the tension enroute to the just-ended Fresh Presidential elections.
The song, which was released a few days prior to the country’s Fresh Presidential election, was in response to divisions politics had played in most parts of Malawi.
Sam, one half of the pair, says the heated political atmosphere that characterized the said elections have the potential of yielding political hatred amongst the (his) country folk if not put in check.
“Time for politicking is over. We need to be united to develop the country. This is the time we should call the power from the Most High to guide us in this period.” He preaches.
Like other sober-minded citizens, Sam argues that political differences should never be a tool for personal hatred.
“We thought of giving Malawians this song so that it can open our minds and spread love among us minus having different political ideologies” he adds
The litany is relatively not that long, 03:50 minutes but lyrically rich with straightforward material. The song starts with Sam, the first verse and ends with Eddie, second verse. The chorus, done by Sam summarizes the whole message.
…Timuyamike, Yese wathu ndiwamoyo atikonda,
Minus the single, the duo says there are a couple of songs that are lined up.
“We’ve unreleased projects. We failed to release due to Covid 19. We will be desirable dates for them soon.” Eddie explains.
The song, was produced, by Dkez walker & Gaffar.
