Singer Rhoda J has underscored the importance of upping the fight against gender-based violence (GBV) regardless of the conclusion of 16 days of activism.

Rhoda J, who came to the limelight after reworking Soldier Lucius Banda’s ‘Nthawi’ track, has since dropped a song titled ‘Mundisapote’, in which she sings against GBV and calls for women empowerment.

In the song, the artist is appealing to husbands to stop abusing wives and support and empower them.

“I deliberately released the song this time as my contribution to 16 Days of Activism which is meant to raise awareness around the various forms of GBV that affect women, girls, boys and men across the world. I am happy that the song has received an overwhelming response,” Rhoda J said.

According to UN Women, violence against women remains a widespread and pervasive human rights violation affecting more than an estimated one in three women worldwide.

She called for love and respect among couples and families.

“Men and women, boys and girls can co-exist and enjoy shared economic opportunities when there is love and respect,” Rhoda J said.

The 16 Days of Activism against GBV campaign is observed annually from November 25 to December 10.

According to United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), in Malawi about 34 percent of women aged between 15 and 49 experience physical violence, 14 percent sexual violence and 23 percent emotional violence.

‘Mundisapote’, which is on both audio and video, is enjoying airplay in some of the radio and television stations in the country and was produced by Pon G.

Rhoda J has made strides in the industry having released a number of songs that include a cover of Paul Banda’s ‘Zikomo Amayi’, which she dropped on Mother’s Day in October.

The singer will release her debut album Oasis of Love, which features ‘Mundisapote’, next year.
