Veteran musician Soldier Lucius Banda has apologised.
Writing on Facebook, Lucius said sorry to all Malawian women for the Ndizakupanga rape song which he described as a bad song.
“On behalf of this young man let me apologise and plead to all relevant authorities to allow this boy make a public apology to all and be whipped into the right path,” Lucius said.
The veteran musician also condemned the song saying it is promoting rape. He added that as a father of a male child he has a responsibility to help the “poor boy” Chavura to make music “that will be good and sensible to the society”.
“As a father I have a duty to protect my daughter against such thoughts as the one promoted by the bad song,” he added.
Chavula’s controversial rape song has caused outrage with many people condemning him on social media while human rights groups called for his arrest.
Police told the local media on Thursday that they were hunting for the musician.
