Gibo Lantosi tampers with Great Angels choir’s songs

332

Lilongwe based musician Gibo Lantosi is gaining fame over covers he has made out of gospel giants Great Angels Choir hit songs.

The artist turned some of the gospel songs done by the choir into secular by changing the message while maintaining the tunes and instrumentations.

This has left the choir’s fans with unanswered questions on rights to have group’s work reproduced.

In an exclusive interview with Malawi24 last week, a member of the Great Angels Justin Kaunda denied giving the artist rights to produce covers for any of their songs.

Gibo Lantosi plays around with Great Angels songs.

He said: “We never gave him any right to make covers of our songs.”

In one of the covers, the chibaba hitmaker substituted the gospel message for something to do with chamba.

In a separate interview with this publication on Monday, the dancehall icon gave a conflicting response on the matter. He claimed that he sought permission from the gospel preachers prior to production of the songs that have become noisy on the local scene.

Mundimangiranji is one of the songs done by the artist that emanated from the Great Angels’ Sindipita. He sings, “inu a police mundimangiranji ine, opanda ganja ine sindingathe.”

When asked if they are planning to take any action against the artist, Kaunda proudly implied that their mission is to spread the word of God and not to fight fellow artists be it gospel or secular.

“We don’t have any plans to take any action against him. We are a gospel group and we can’t do that, our mission is to reach many lives and not to argue with fellow artist weather gospel or the other side.”

The Great Angels is a choir of the people, thanks to the group’s many a hit songs. The choir’s popularity is evidenced by the number of people who follows the group’s Facebook page which is under the name the Great Angels choir.

  43. I think all these comments are coming from listeners not artists there is a law that’ has passed about copyright, read them, you will understand for someone to do a version of a song for another artist all changing the words and mantain the rythm you need approval from the creators of that song so if he did then it’s ok if he did not The owners are free to sue him for 5million or he faces jail time of 10 years

  44. I dt see any problem on that as long as the msge is still going to spread..all over..whats wrong with u the great angel ????? Mesa cholimga chanu nchofalisa uthenga?nde gibo walakwisamji mesa naye akufalisa uthenga.

Had it been u tampered the Muslim songs u would have been ended into jail or sharia law would hav been wept u away.Gibo if you will continue doing your nasty behaviour b4 our Lord God Himself shall send consuming fire to destroy you.Watch out!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Gibo doesn’t tarnish the Christian’s image but God himself.
