  1. Burn it we are not politicians, its football please! FAZ why are you easily swayed by the motions of people. Don’t bring politics in football. You would rather play Mozegeters music than that song!


  2. Tell those musicians to contact me I have a very nice bustele Chipolopolo song never ever sung in Zambia very well composed believe you me this will be the Anthem (theme) song of Chipolopolo. All those JKs and crew are singers not composers that’s why they run out of ideas.
    I am not joking I am a Singer and Song writer.
