  1. I cant see Zambian Musicians on the list! Is it because we dont have our type of Music such as the Guys on the list- Kwaito, Rhumba and Nigerian…..? No wonder we just copy whatever is on the lime light. Then, all our musical tunes were copied from South Africa. Decade later we started imitating Rhumba and now we have gone Nigerian, Including Gospel.

  3. YOU MEAN THESE XENOPHOBIC CONTAMINATED PEOPLE CAN’T COME UP WITH AN ORIGINAL SONG. THIS SONG WON’T CUT IT. IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN AN ORIGINAL SONG WITH PAIN EXPERIENCED TO COMPOSE IT. NOT SOMETHING MADE EASY ALREADY. IN ANY CASE THEY DOESN’T EVEN MENTION THE PURPOSE OF THE SONG IN THEIR SINGING- IT IS AN ABSOLUTE COPY-AND-PAST. IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN SHOWING IMAGES HOW THEY BLOOD-THIRSTILY MURDERED THEIR MURDERED THEIR FELLOW AFRICANS. IT SHOULD HAVE ALSO TOUCHED ON, GHANA-MUST-GO. IT SHOULD HAVE SHOWN THEIR KING INCITING HIS PEOPLE IN HIS SPEECH AND MANY MORE ISSUES TO REALLY REMIND PEOPLE OF WHAT THEY SHOULDN’T DO. NOW, IT APPEARS LIKE A JUDGE PASSING A SENTENCE ON TO HIMSELF. NOW YOU ‘VE MADE THE SONG UNPOPULAR COS MOST RADIOS WILL NOT BE PLAYING IT FOR THAT PURPOSE.
