Tay Grin features 2face in Chipapapa

The song which is expected to be released next week is  titled “Chipapapa”.

This is going to be the first studio work by the artist in 2016. Last year, he was featured in Gwamba’s Munthu song alongside Malaulo, and the hit was considered to be the best collaboration in the year.

In an interview with Malawi24 yesterday, Tay Grin revealed that “Chipapa” will be released on Monday next week. In this respect, Malawians should prepare their ears for great sounds by great African artists.

The award winning rapper has involved services of a local producer, Lilongwe based DJ Sley. The Blantyre based rapper said that he has always wanted to work with 2Face, therefore this work of art serves as fulfilment of his wish.

“The beat was produced by DJ Sley. I have always wanted to work with 2Face and this song seemed perfect for both of us,” said Tay Grin

The song is not devoid of traditional flavours as the artist said. As a musician that has always been identified by the Nyau touch, his style has spilled over to Chipapa.
“I cannot veer off from what made me as an artist; I have a touch of Nyau drums and keeping true to local elements,” said Tay Grin.

The epic video for the song will be shot next month in South Africa and it promises to be a great visual. Tay Grin is known for making good videos after some of his videos have enjoyed airplay on major Televisions such as Channel O and Mtv Base.

The rapper whose real name is Limbani Kalilani is synonymous with giving it his best when it comes to flying the black, red and green colours higher. In 2014 he was honoured by BEFFTA with an award for best international African act. He was also ranked on position 82 on the list of influential people by C.Hub magazine last year.

In his music career, he has managed to work with a number of international artists like DJ Waxy from Nigeria, Bufalo Souljah from Zimbabwe, and Gal Level from Namibia.
