I am not controversial, I address issues – Fredokiss

83

Blantyre based rapper Fredokiss has trashed claims that he attacks government in his songs following a growing concern from some Malawians that he is becoming political.

The ghetto King Kong has a number of songs under his name which addresses issues of national interest, with his latest work to fall in this category being Zausiru. However misinterpretation of his work has become order of the day.

In a radio interview the previous night, the rapper denied aiming at the government arguing his only enemies are issues that affect people.

Fredokiss defends his lyrics.

He said that it is an overstatement to claim he is controversial, as such people should learn to understand that administrations come and go but issues have always been there and do not spare anybody.

He added that even the country’s president and others who hold positions of power have relatives who are in need as they cannot reach out to everyone. In this regard it is his responsibility as an artist to address issues such as lack of opportunities in employment and education.

Born Penjani Kalua, son to veteran politician Kamlepo Kalua, he also said that he does not have any plans to become a politician because he is more than a politician.

The minister of ghetto affairs as Fredokiss is also known, had one of his music videos, Changes, banned from state television MBC on the grounds that it has sensitive content. When he was asked to edit the visuals, he strongly refused and the video was thrown into the trash barrel.

Changes is a song that was originally done by the late 2Pac from United States of America. Fredokiss did its cover which he contextualised to fit Malawi’s environment.

Some of his songs include Ndikatseka maso, Zautsiru, and Kalawe’s Dzuka Malawi remix on which he was featured.

Currently pursuing a master’s degree in South Africa, Fredokiss happens to be one of the artists in Malawi with a large fan base. He inspires the Malawian youth through his charity works, one of which is provision of scholarships to poor secondary school students enrolled with community day secondary schools.
