Mzuzu-based musician Emmanuel Maseko has called on people to support artists by buying their original works.
He said musicians are investing a lot in recording albums and that it was saddening that people prefer to buy pirated copies instead of original works.
Maseko will on Tuesday launch his album Mwayenera at Squirrels Park.
“It is not easy as you have to invest a lot of money and composing songs is something that drains a lot of money. So, it does not go down well when people buy pirated copies. I call upon them to support artists by buying original works,” Maseko said.
On his album Mwayenera, Maseko said he is looking forward to the best and that he has received an overwhelming response.
“I am happy with the response I have received so far since I dropped some of the songs. I am looking forward to more and the important thing is to stay focused and remain unique,” he said.
The eight-track album has songs such as ‘Ndimasuleni’, ‘Thank You God’, ‘He is the Way’, ‘Hallelujah’, ‘We Worship You’, ‘Ukulu Wanu’, and ‘He is Risen’.
The launch of the album on January 1 will be spiced up by performances from Ethel Kamwendo Banda, Favaoured Martha, Andy Seko, Shammah Vocals, Saxess, Eliza Mponya, Grena Phiri, Walusungu Kishombe, Martha Kasambara and Griffin Kaliat.
The album was recorded at CF Studio in Mzuzu by Freedom Munthali.
