Thursday was a special day for mothers in the country being Mothers’ Day.
The past years has seen artists coming out in large numbers to produce different works speaking volumes of the important role that mothers play to the society.
Songs have come out both local and international and yesterday several media houses took time out to play some of these songs including Tupac Shakur’s classic ‘Dear Mama’.
Yesterday some artists came out with works celebrating mothers and it included Miracle Chinga Moffat, who dropped ‘Mama’, with Eli Njuchi releasing ‘Ma Ine’.
Poet Sylvester Kalizang’oma also took time out to celebrate mothers by releasing a video of his poem ‘Nayi Nkhata’.
Kalizang’oma said yesterday the poem was a special dedication to those who lost their mothers.
“I just thought I should release this video being Mothers’ Day. It is a poem that has a powerful message looking at the role that mothers play and then I go further to look at how mothers are treated by their children once they grow up,” he said.
Kalizang’oma said ‘Nayi Nkhata’ is coming from his forthcoming album and DVD.
Watching the video, Kalizang’oma has done a good job to bring the story to the masses.
Shot at the graveyard, the poet famed for the poem ‘Unkalindanji Moyo’, looks back at what his mother used to do before he passed on and then goes on to criticise children who ill-treat their mothers.
