The budding reggae beat killer, Vanting alongside 2017 UMP Best dancehall artist nominee, Purple C are both set to release what they are calling “pure food for the soul” on 18th December this festive season.
The song, Happiness, is purely inspiring to the audience, leaving them healthier, psychologically as it is rich in nothing but happiness vibes.
According to Vanting, the song’s title is self-explanatory and directly relates to the current mood across the streets of Malawi.
“Happiness in this case should mean a lot of things such as contentment of things, joyfulness of oneself not by the standard measure of happiness which the society pressure on you. Happiness should be measured by a certain standard of having physical materials, one can be happy by having personal understanding of God, some say Allah, and some Jah. That is also a form of happiness that this song is preaching,” elucidated Vanting.
On his part, Purple C said the song is dedicated to all “good music lovers.”
Adds he, “It’ been deliberately released this festive season as the song’s message equally fits in,” he revealed.
According to Vanting, the song is also targeting every individual who likes being happy.
“This song targets all ages from the age of 1, in some sort of natural vibration that a mind child is able to understand cause he/she knows happiness where was before being on earth, same good to adult minds,” he explained.
But why release the song on 18 December?
“As we all know we are approaching the festive season, where people full of negative energy will try to define happiness for other people which will make the other people commit crimes because they are not content with what they have at that moment but as we are approaching the festive season, let’s be Happy,” he said.
In limelight of the above sentiments, Vanting makes it clear that the song is quite different from other songs since there is a lot of creativity in the song starting from its message to how it is sounding.
“The message itself is different, artistry levels as well. You know with the fact that I did the song with an artist with substance, which makes the song so catchy and beautiful, this is no childish song. And it is really another form of happiness,” Vanting boasted
The conscious Reggae song has no sole owner “it’s just Vanting and Purple C not Vanting featuring Purple C or the vice versa” and it has been mastered by Twiggy.
