Malawi’s radio personality and successful rapper ThirdBorn will be dropping new music in May 2018. This writer wanted to know his view on growth of African music industry.
“How do you look at the overall Malawi urban music industry landscape?” questioned Malawi Heat on Wednesday, April 25, 2018.
“Weighing it from 5 years back I can say with the right investment, we are ready to take our place on the international scene although some work needs to be done….” replied ThirdBorn.
And he contiued “… that is in terms of quality assurance and support from the local audience because that is how we have failed to progress like Zambia did with the likes of Zonefam and Tanzania with Diamond Platnumz… But all in all a few selected artists are doing great.”
The bottom line: local industry players have to borrow a leaf or two from other African countries.
