mumba yachi

Zambian folk musician, Mumba Yachi, took to social media to question why a Zambian artiste is not replacing Koffi Olomide at this years Agricultural and Commercial show.
He had this to say on his Facebook page.

“I hear the show society is replacing koffi with werrason. yes the man is a phenomenal his band “Maison mere” can really entertain the show goers.
but my point is; gone are the days where we use to think Zambian musicians can’t perform live. the show society must try Mumba Yachi,.if given that chance I can bring in a proper stage performance to suit that audience. I have performed For 2 hours straight just with a guitar .what more with a full band? am not complaining NO NO. but am saying it loud that we are here to give that same entertainment if given the opportunity. those werrason guys have worked hard to be where they are and Congolese people have supported them very much.the fikin is the annual show of Congo and it is always headlined by their artists.we also need that support from our own. next year I want to be the headline of that show and I won’t disappoint .”

 

The Agricultural and Commercial Society of Zambia  bowed down to public pressure and cancelled Congolese rhumba giant Koffi Olomide’s planned shows in Lusaka.

In a brief statement, Show Society President Ben Shoko said following the reported unfortunate incidence in Kenya concerning Koffi Olomide, the show Society of Zambia has decided to cancel his performances during this year’s Show.

  4. The main reason ba Mumba is some Zambian musicians are too busy singing “Dunana Reverse” while others are singing “Dununa Forward”. Politics will kill Zambian music as we knew it, all for short term monetary gains. Imagine Paul Ngozi or PK reducing themselves to the level of a UNIP vigilante? Respect yourselves and businesses will take you seriously. I know not all musicians are involved but the few are spoiling it for all the others.

  5. MUMBA YACHI, THE REASON I THINK YOU KNOW IT EVEN YOURSELF. THERE’S NO MUSIC IN ZAMBIA TO EVEN WRITE A BOOK ABOUT. WITH 73 TO 75 LANGUAGES (CULTURAL DIVERSITY) ZAMBIA SHOULD HAVE BEEN THE MUSIC GIANT. BECAUSE EVERYTHING FOR MUSIC IS WITHIN THIS CULTURAL DIVERSITY WITHIN ZAMBIA. BUT IF ALL MUSICIANS ARE GOING TO PALY ONE BASELINE AND SING TO THAT SINGLE BASELINE THROUGHOUT THE NATION, WHO DO YOU THINK WOULD WANT TO LISTEN TO THAT NONSENSE WITHOUT A BAND PLAYING REAL MUSIC
