My Diary 10 is KB’s newest release featuring Mag44, Abel Chungu, Tio Nason, and Mikrophone7. It is what we can probably call “the gospel” edition. Question is, did the song do justice as did other releases did in the diary series?
KB a.k.a Killa Beats is a big fish in the Zambian music industry and is now signed with Nexus Music which has boasting rights for being home to some of the most impactful names in Zambian Music. He has an ear for music and brings something fresh with every song. On My Diary 10, we can confidently say he brought the heat once again.
My Diary is meant to be brutally honest. We expect the kind of stuff that people will only write in their diaries for personal “views” only. What Mag44, Tio, Abel and M7 brought to the table was definitely artistic and without doubt heartfelt. They told true stories and that’s great. But we won’t get into those details. Ya’ll should get the song. However, it seems each artist delivered with “care” and wasn’t writing into a diary like others have done on previous editions of the song. There was no “juice.” But can we or should we blame them?
Consider this; most of the time the Christian community is arguably a judgemental lot. If a gospel artist came out with a brutal truth everyone else would probably point fingers and blow things out of proportion. This is what the artists on this version of KB’s My Diary would have to deal with if they didn’t somewhat “mask” the real issues they penned down for the feature. So, can you blame them?
Now, about the verdict! Thumbs up or thumbs down. Tough call to make. But we will give it a thumbs up understanding the artists spoke the truth in what we’d call a mature approach. Not one we are used to in the My Diary series.
