Kanda video getting mixed reactions

66

Malawians are having mixed views on the video for Kanda, a song done by Tay Grin, Sonye, and Nigerian singer, Orezi, about two weeks after its release.

A few months after Sonye baked the audio, the collaborating trio flew to South Africa for video production whose final outcome has become another subject of critical analysis. Some Malawians have had their expectations met while others have trashed the work on the grounds of creativity.

People have been sharing their opinions on the motion pictures through social media. This follows assessment of the work as influenced by the ability to draw comparison.

Others have spoken highly of the video up to the point of claiming it is currently the best in Malawi. They have found backup on the fact that it premiered on Trace Television, an international platform where it is enjoying airplay.

Opposing critical minds think the visuals are not in tandem with the storyline. They argue that picture quality is just fine only that one can hardly establish its relationship to the message being conveyed.

The video opens up with attractive smokes that resembles clouds, then a woman in white attire screams. Sonye picks it from there with an introduction. As he starts his verse, manganje dance accompanies the lyrics.

Orezi has been highly criticised for crippling the video having covered his face with a mask. When he is captured without a mask, his face can be hardly identified.

All in all Malawians have received the product only that comparison with Tay Grin’s last project, Chipapapa, has created some sort of debate with some Malawians saying the last project is way better than the Kanda.

  1. Don’t just listen to the song, watch it on YouTube and then you will notice 6 satanic symbols…. 1, the smoke (initiation) 2, The bone skull (bathomet) 3, the one eye symbol (the lady head band lapping the left eye), 4, the mask of Orenz shape ( the all seeing eye), 5, Death dance in the introduction of the song by the woman and 6, the hidden message in the song like KANDA, UKOKO, ICHOCHO ……. am a Reggae_Dancehall Artiste and I know what we do to tell people in away that they just do imaginations themselves and know what we meant to avoid singing obscene languages to avoid our songs being banned on radio plays….

  6. Satanism it’s not only about blood your evil thinking too is satanic hating,swearing, jealous, so don’t judge other’s check yourself first are u pure in the heart if not you’re satanic too

  7. They are not haters, u gat not to be blinded with ur positive attitude over someone. we r in the last days and we r alert of any tricks of satan to hook us to himself. Being done by Malawians doesnt signify tht its not evil.

  8. Malawians we should lean not to Judge an think we see, we always waste tym,m’malo moti to promote the person we end up Judging that is jealous

    • Iwe Davie ngati uli oyimba,usayembekezere kuti anthu ozindikira angakugule ngati nawenso utayimba phada ngati ameneyu. Kodi ukuganiza ngati, anthu onse dziko muno alikum’dima wa satanic? Anthu ozindikira zimenezi sangatsekerere, komanso sungawaone akupita kukakhalanawo m’gulu la oipayo.
