After staying quiet for a long time from the music scene as a solo artist Mag44 made a return with his first single being Mr Mando as a gift to celebrate his birthday and the song features his older sister Kunda Mando who is a celebrated TV personality.
“A new age comes with new beginnings and decisions.” Mag44 posted on his socials, “This song marks the beginning of a transition in my life.” What is this new transition?
Some of the lines in his new single;
35 years and am still a rapper
Bally Bally si’ylako na bafana
Ati mukule sinifuno pombosoka
Still gat bars sitivala with or no corona
Still passing the baton all this on my shoulders…….
But for me ’19 was as hard as 2020 but I gat the 20/20 vision…..
No more Mag44 call me Mr Mando
Is he changing his stage name to Mr Mando? Or is he working on a new album called Mr Mando?
Mag44 has been in the rap game for a very long time. Is he getting too old for it and leaving the music scene for the younger generation to focus on being a music producer, writer and entrepreneur in the music business or is he transitioning into a new kind of sound so as to stay relevant and also capture a new audience?
In a recent post made on his instagram Mag44 posted, “I believe that Zambia’s wealth is in export, we need to create products and services that we can sell to the rest of the world. Does this mean his new kind of music is of a world wide audience? In this post he made reference to some of the export talents Zambia has Sampa The Great. Mag44 has worked with Sampa on several projects including her upcoming album. Who knows maybe Mag44 is signing a new international record deal. You know how having connections works here in Zed…lol. If not international, we could speculate he’s possibly getting signed to a big record label locally; either Kalandaya or Nexus Music after seeing his recent post captioned “Okay chapwa, let’s push ma files manje..” where he is seen possibly signing a contract. Who knows.
While like us you are also trying to figure out what Mag44’s next chapter is, get the new song Mr Mando here
