Chinga’s family want music pirates arrested

319

Family members of the late talented gospel Malawian artist Grace Chinga have called on the Malawi Police Service to arrest all people who are selling unreleased songs of the late musician.

According to late Chinga’s uncle, Pastor Isaac Mpazula, this is a worrisome development as it will have a negative impact to the family considering that the artist left three children who are also relying on the same songs for a source of a living.

“This is a burden to us; the problem is that at the funeral you saw some three children. They are relying on the same music. But see what these people are doing. These are automatically thieves, so we are asking for help from all Malawians on the matter,” said Mpazula.

Mpazula further said it was in the plan of their late daughter to launch the album by July this year and he assured that they are committed to do so with financial help from well-wishers.

Joining his uncle was late Chinga’s brother, Joseph Chinga who asked Copyright Association of Malawi (Cosoma) to immediately confiscate and secure the songs.

“We are worried with the development. You can see that we are still mourning the death of our beloved daughter and it is so painful to hear that some people are doing that.

“So my question is should it be a double cry? We are crying that we have lost our sister and someone is also stealing from us, why? So I would like to see Malawi police arresting these people for the protection of the songs,” said Chinga.

He wondered where the thieves got the songs saying the one in control and producing the songs assured them that the songs are secured and won’t be pirated which is contrary to what is happening.

Chinga’s death shocked many Malawians and thousands of people attended her funeral at Robin’s Park in Blantyre.

  12. We don’t respect our friends’ intellectual property in Malawi! At this stage this field is as good as useless in our uncivilized society! Elsewhere I have seen people even failing to download a song from a free download site and opt to do it on iTunes etc so that the men behind the work can reap something from their sweat! We are pathetic at times! We are perpetual thieves fellow Malawians! Those buying the CDs are also at fault! They are the ones encouraging this awful act of piracy!

    • dont speak as if you are not in malawi.those pipo they manage to do that cox they have the capacity to protect their talent do u think pathetic thieves are only in malawi?wake up dude umphawi ndi umene ukupangitsa izi thats why ena amalowerelapo

    • dont speak as if you are not in malawi.those pipo they manage to do that cox they have the capacity to protect their talent do u think pathetic thieves are only in malawi?wake up dude umphawi ndi umene ukupangitsa izi thats why ena amalowerelapo

    • Talk about poverty there are also poor people in the west! Extreme paucity! Talk of homeless people etc they are there so don’t use poverty as a scape goat for stealing other people’s works bra! It’s people who think like you that can consider piracy! Even here in Malawi some people can’t buy a fake disc! I know some so don’t say we step out of bounds because we don’t have capacity! It’s not about capacity! It’s about understanding limits and knowing one’s responsibility! It’s about knowing who really has to benefit from certain works, performances etc

  13. Ayambe kumumanga producer amene amajambula nyimboyo chifukwa iyeyo ndiye kuti ndi amene wayamba kuzigulisa nyimbozo kwa anthu okubawo!! Zingatheke bwanji nyimbo zoti sizinamalizidwe editing mkukapezeka ndi anthu????? 1st suspect ndi producer yo

  27. Zisilu inu basi nkhani kungokhala ya Grace iye ndi ndani pa Malawi anayamba kufa ndiiye kuli anthu ambili ochita bwino akumwalila tsiku ndi tsiku who is Grace fuck u

  28. The issue seems to be complicated in one way and at the same time simple and easy to deal with considering the fact that the songs were still in the studios hence the MAM and police should take it up from him as to how the unfinished product found it self on the market.

  29. Yeah its good to arrest them, bt sumtymz zimayambira kuboma komko. wat am saying z : apolice omwewa amapezeka kuti akumapita mwaanyamata obena ndumagura ma CD ndi ma DVD achinyengowo. one day wen l ws at my home town l saw one police officer buying tht kind of DVD. komanso sumtym anyamata obenawa2 amaziwana ndi apolice enawa amamwesena weekend, ndie zoti angathirane zingwe mmmm maybe

  30. The comments which are here clearly indicates that, the songs are everywhere & no one can stop it anymore. With the coming of Flash, memory cards or computers , it is totally impossible to stop pirates in Malawi. If you take more than a month to officially launch this album, you will sell nothing. By the end of April, everyone will have those songs in his/her device. So don’t just shout but do something to get something.

  31. Koma boma lamalawi limandibowa bwanji uyambe wazimanga wekha nanga iwe waziwa bwanji kuti anthu akugulitsa zausilu basi
