Toza Matafale is right

306

Toza Matafale, the young brother to Malawi reggae icon, Evison Matafale, has of recent been in the media for his response to the remixed and sampled songs of his brother. He has expressed his disappointment over two songs: First, Chauta Wa Mphamvu, remixed by San B, Nepman and Young Kay, second, Malawi which has recently been sampled by rapper, Martse. All of these songs were from his maiden 1999 ground breaking album, Kuimba One.

The accused artists have a good history of their own in the Malawi music industry. San B has been around for close to two decades now, Nepman came into the limelight in 2003, Young Kay made his mark in 2006 and the award winner, Martse, is one of the top rappers in Malawi.

There have been mixed reactions to the songs. Some are seeing no problems with them while others think Toza is justified to say whatever he has said in the situation. But this article is for the latter. Toza is right in blaming the artists of copying the songs of his brother, especially without the permission of the family.

This debate, if taken well, can be the turning point of the Malawi music industry. This is not the first time musicians in Malawi have remixed  and sampled a work. It has been done a couple of times, and in all those, there was never a loud cry like that of Toza.

The normality of the arts world and copying states that the use of someone’s work must be done after permission has been sought and granted. An art work, even when the creator dies, does not exist on its own. There are always custodians to the work. These people are responsible for guarding the work from being exploited by other people. That is the reason the art world has witnessed countless number of lawsuits.

The challenge is that, in Malawi, copying or using an existing work, especially music, has never been taken seriously by the said custodians. They look upon it as recognition and a moment of popularizing a work. It is hard in Malawi, due to weak arts laws, for music to continued making money even when the singer is dead. For example, Allan Namoko or Paul Chaphuka songs are still popular today, two decades after their deaths. The continual use of their work means that the family and all those involved in the work still have to gain from it.

But with them gone, there can never be any opportunity for the family or the record companies they were in to be rewarded. Their work takes the path of extinction. Therefore when one samples / remixes a song from them, it becomes a happy moment for the custodians as they see it as salvation of the work.

San B, Nepman, Young K

Nepman, San B and Young K

This is why there have never been lawsuits regarding this issue in Malawi. But Toza has taken the issue otherwise and he must be commended for that. Laws or no laws, using someone’s work must be done after permission. Musicians of repute like San B, Nepman and Young Kay ignoring this is a crime and has to answer for it. Evison Matafale’s work is left to the family, since he was not under a record company. These three artists could have asked the family for permission than doing how they did it.

For Martse, this is the second time he is sampling / remixing a well-known song. Two years ago he remixed / sampled Billy Kaunda’s first hit song, ‘Mwapindulanji?’ without permission. He easily got away with it. Billy Kaunda is the kind of man who cannot take him to task. He is a media-shy person and in his entire career he has never involved himself in controversies. Martse must have felt that he will also get away with the Matafale song. But fortunately, he has met his match and this is important for the industry.

The thinking that San B and his friends sampled the song out of recognition of Evison Matafale’s talent and legacy, as others are saying, is welcome. But still, bypassing the family was an artistic crime. And the fact that Billy Kaunda never had issues with Martse over his remixed / sampled song, and that Toza should have treated the issue the same way, is a narrow view of the situation, the characters involved and the progress of the music industry.

Toza is not the problem. The problem is the four artists who decided to do it without the blessing of the family. It is not that he wants to make a name out of his brother or that he is bitter since his music career did not blossom like that of his brother. What he is saying is true, and reflects even to those people whose music was remixed / sampled but permission was never sought and granted. He is speaking for a lot of people and maybe from now onwards artists will think twice when they will want to sample / remix a work. Sampling / remixing a song [without acknowledgment] is not doing them a favor. You are compromising their legacies and reaping where you did not sow. Stop that!

  18. in jamaica when theres a day to remember Bob Marley every artist who is taking part in his comemoration, has to sing any song of Marly any way he want, and i have never heard Marly’s family are taking these people to court because of songs its only here in MW

    • Mr Kay Nkuladzo don’t say things you have no knowlegde about. Your comment simply shows that you don’t have any knowledge on the music industry in Jamaica. There is no way you can sing someone’s song without prior arrangement with the copyright holders. Things can’t operate at such an amateur level in a country like Jamaica where music is one of the main exports.

      By the way, you are talking about different things here. Singing at a concert and recording are completely different. When artists sing songs at a Bob Marley or Peter Tosh memorial Concert it is the Bob Marley family that gets most of the money. The artists will just be paid their appearance fee while the family get the rest the money earned at such prestigious events. But in the case of the San B and Friends or the Martze guy, the Matafale family doesn’t benefit anything.

      You may also be interested to know that even the riddims that people use in their songs, aren’t for free. Artists have to buy a riddim to use it in their song. Kwathu kuno timangoba ma riddim because our music is never meant to cross the country’s boundaries due to its mediocrity. But believe you me, its an offense to use someones riddim anyhow.

    • Playing someone’s songs live and re- recording them for benefits are two different things my brother. You always have to get a permission to use someone’s song. It’s not only here in malawi. It’s a law that works almost in every country in the world. If he took permission then there was no problem using it. The case of Jamaicans, you never know on what condition they do that for.

  35. Not a problem with that. Dalisoul of Zambia did that for Paul Chaphuka ” Ndichiritseni”.If the musician died, fellow musicians remember him in many ways. But nobody can go in the studio and remix Sir Soldier’s songs today because the big Man is still alive.
    Bojo Mujo used to do all those kind of things, it’s no case.

    • That’s bull shit! People will stop thinking in that way. They’ll be considering on brushing dead men’s songs only. Much of musicians are drunkards. They will stop thinking and spend times in pubs knowing that there are many songs of dead people tht will need just to be polished. If some1 dies it doesn’t give any one the rights to vandalise someone’s talent even 2 jump THE LAW OF COPY RIGHTS! No 1 is above the law and ur problem is tht u just take things just from the above. U must dig and find out wht the law says. The problem these days is tht when people have got money they don’t consider the laws, they forget! U talk of musicians like Bujomujo, Dalisoul and the like: U just hear their musics and u don’t stay with them. U don’t knw whether they asked permissions or what. Were u there when they were preparing for those songs?

    • U got it ryt.In west they are singing this church how great thou art,in more than a 100 versions with the new versions contrary to the first dub,I hear no cases in the west.Its normal.Keeping the legacy going

    • That’s what’s happening here in South Africa, seven artist the sing one song,,we Malawians we have to take note that,singer and composer are two different things, but some of them they’re double talented, so how can someone be in jail over a song which was already released, Bob Marley one love one heart,yayimbidwa ndi anthu angati panopa,

  65. Remix, remembrance or whatever must be done in its order. The right procedure must be followed. According 2 copy rights laws San B was supposed 2 request 4 permission from the relevant authorities if he had 2 use Matafale’s versions in his song. U can’t be fame by using some1’s talent. If he was remembering Matafale he was supposed 2 compose a totally different song but mentioning his heroic standard in the song. People like San B are the ones killing music industry, boasting about someone’s thoughts without paying. U SHALL EAT UR SWEAT! Let Matafale’s family benefit from the sweat of their own son. San B’s family are benefiting from the sweat of another family’s son! That’s abomination!

  66. Remix, remembrance or whatever must be done in its order. The right procedure must be followed.

    • Steven Wood: Reactions of people 2 copy rights situations do differ. Bizzy and Matafale’s family are totally 2 different things. It’s just like if someone can fuck ur wife. Reactions of men differ. Another person can kill a man who fucks his wife another one can forgive and fix his marriage. Don’t blame the Matafales. It’s within their rights 2 speak. Here we follow the law of copy rights in music. No person is allowed 2 use someone’s song without the concern of the composer. The fact tht Matafale was dead doesn’t give rights 2 any1 in the world 2 take advantage of his talent. They need 2 ask, that’s all!

  71. Palibe vuto mr Toza umenewo ndi umboni kt akulu ako aja adalidi madala madala ndiye ena akamaziimbaso nyimbo zija ndi ulemu umenewo osadanda kkkkkkkk

  72. Let them imitate bt thy wl neva reach up 2 his multi talented position bcz Evison Matafale was such a phenominal outstanding misician of all tyms.Let them build their castles in the air hence thy cn neva change anythng

  73. Ku malawi umbuli suzatha kodi simuonela nyimbo za kunja chifukwa chake timangola zo bena zanu ndi makape zedi simunaonepo chris brown anatulusa nyimbo ya michael jackson if u want to live to night anamumanga ndani???? uphawi a malawi

  74. Its really a cause for concern why cant they come up with their original creativity and talent. this is evidence that the reggae icon’s stuff still stands the taste of time and envied by many of the late’s contemporary artists.

  76. How can I explain this testimony to the public about a great man who help me out in serious illness I have HIV AID for good 3year and I was almost going to the end of my life due to the way my skin look like all I have in my mind is let me just give up because life is not interesting to me any longer but I just pray for God every day to accept my soul when ever I’m gone lucky to me my kids brother run to me that he found a doctor in the internet who can cure HIV online he help me out on everything, the doctor ask for my details, so he can prepare the herbal medicine for me from his temple after all he ask is done one week later I started getting more stronger my blood start flow normally for 4 to 5 days I start getting Wight before 6 days my body start developing my skin start coming up after 8 days which he told me that i will be completely healed, I went for HIV test and I was tested negative I’m so happy that I can say I’m not a HIV patient if you have HIV/AID or any sickness he can still help you in getting your ex-back to you please contact him via his email: [email protected], or whatsapp him on +2348143143878.

  77. Toza should drag these thieves and their accomplices like the studios, radio, tv stations, promoters and distributors of this illicit material to court.
    Surely Matafale registered his work with Cosoma but where are they?
    We surely have Musician Legislators in that Chinese Temple Tin House next to Kamuzu’s grave but have never heard any of them introducing a topic on these malpractices-why-bcoz they too are involved in one way or the other, yes some even call themselves commandos but mmmh…..

  78. Billy isn’t a media shy…

    People who stay away from journalist are much respected than those who are on radios, TV’s & newspapers every now & then…
    Malawians know better about Billy Kaunda’s career, all he wants is to share the message he has with Malawians, nothing more!!!

    If he once denied an interview with you, just accept that you weren’t qualified enough to meet him…

  79. koma munthuyo akunena zoona, sikut akulakwa ai, zikuonjeza ndy pot munthu akayankhu mumat akufuna kupanga dzina koma adzikhala chete ngakhale zinthu zikulakwika
