Lambanie Dube finally out with ‘Knockout’ album
Controversial reggae musician Lambanie Dube formerly Limbani Banda is finally out with his latest album titled Knockout.
The reggae singer who has upped his live performances of late performing frequently with Lucius Banda said he is optimistic that people will welcome his new songs.
“This is an album I have taken much time and I have a new style in which I am trying to fuse reggae and traditional dances like Manganje,” said the dreadlocked musician.
In the album, the musician has revisited his previous song ‘Chisoni Nkumatenda,’ and has come up with a dub version of the song.
“I just thought I did this song long-time ago and since people are still in love with this song I have decided to do a dub version,” said the musician.
While some quarters have said the musician has gone down since he released the hit ‘Chisoni Nkumatenda,’ Lambanie maintained that he is still among the best as far as reggae music is concerned.
“People might have their own say but if you follow all the albums I have released you will see that I have done well. And this new album Knockout has mature reggae songs,” he said.
Lambanie recorded the 13-track album which he said also contains gospel songs at Green Arts and Ralph Records in Blantyre.
“Of course I should admit that I am not doing music the way I used to do in the past years because I am also involved in other things but I have taken my time working on all my albums. For instance on this one, I have taken almost four years,” he said.
Looking back to where he has come from, the reggae musician also known as ‘Bush Doctor’ said it has been a tough journey but he has not lost confidence.
“I am still walking just like Johnny Walker, I want to do more for Malawi and I am working hard to push my music and I am actually targeting recording in Jamaica,” said the reggae artist.
He said through the album he wants to change the world and that he wants Malawians to learn, jack up and be productive.
“We need to move from a jealousy nation to a productive nation and its high time we started believing in ourselves,” he said.
Some of the songs in the album include ‘Sonia,’ ‘Stuck on You,’ ‘Mulungu Wabwino,’ ‘Living in the Jungle,’ ‘Nthiti Yanga,’ ‘Wasintha Moyo Wanga,’ and ‘Babylon Kingdom.’
His other previous albums include Yankho, Mark of the Beast, Chains and Shuckles, Umodzi ndi Mphamvu and World Crisi
