Lilongwe, November 26, 2020. A Blantyre based musician, Rome whose real name is Happy Dumba is set to release a new song both audio and video titled ‘Anzanu’ on November 30, 2020. He told Malawi News Agency (Mana) on Wednesday in Lilongwe that the core message of the song was to remind the society to be careful on whom they put their trust in because they are the close friends and family that talks ill about their friends and pretend, they love them in the face. Rome said the other message that the song carries a warning to people who pretend to care for their friends while in reality they do not want to see them succeed. “I am releasing this song because of the rising cases of child abuse especially defilement. The song is warning parents on whom they trust with their children because some cases show that some of the perpetrators are close friends and family members. I am targeting all age groups both in rural and urban areas,” he added. Rome added that he sees a bright future in his music ministry and with God’s help and his fans, he would come up with excellent songs with powerful messages. He said, “My vision is to come up with a good management team because so far, I have been doing things on my own and it has not been easy to link up with other artists. But if I have a good management team, I will be able to interact with other artists and grow in the music industry.” The Musician pointed out that Malawi has good and talented artists and if they are given proper sponsorship and support, they would have an excellent music industry. He started singing in 2015 and is working on an album to be release early next year when all is set.
