A popular musician and a former Big Brother Africa participant, Mark Mulaza Kaira popularly known as Macky 2 has put himself on a knife’s age from the music fans in Zambia following the release of his new hit.
The most celebrated musician released Tilizon on Friday amid high tension in the country following the arrest of United Party for National Development (UPND) party president Hakainde Hichilema.
According to the media in Zambia, it say the hit song indirectly mocks Mr Hakainde Hichilema who was arrested on treason charges.
Even though some of the music lovers see this song as a common love song, a song about a side chick who is envious of his wife, but some have received it with a negative mind citing that he has lost his track.
Music supporters on social media, especially Facebook, have criticised the music star for releasing a song which might fuel more violence in Zambia. These supporters says that if he puts much time on politics, more especially by siding any political party, it will jeopardise his carrier and he will certainly lose his fans.
The UPND leader, who is the close rival to the incumbent president, Edgar Lungu, was charged with treason for allegedly obstructing President Edgar Lungu’s motorcade on a road in Mongu during the Kuomboka ceremony. The arrest has brought ethnicity and political tensions in the country.
The opposition leader disobeyed police orders to give way to the presidential motorcade in an attempt to put the life of the republican president in danger.
The two have been on each others neck since August elections which Edgar Lungu won. Despite being sworn in as the Zambian president, Hakainde Hichilema did not accept the outcome citing that the elections were not free and fair.
