By CHIPEMA SAKAIMBO –
KABWE based artiste Drimz of the Irene Mambilima fame has released the highly anticipated music video to his single track ‘Umutende’.
This happens to be a time when a lot of Zambian artists would rather make quick money by singing campaign songs but for Drimz he is preaching peace and unity.
Drimz says he believes music is not only for entertainment but a tool of communication as well and that it plays a huge role in the behavior of someone.
The artiste feels his fellow musicians need to be wary of the type lyrics in their songs they expose to the listeners.
He went on to explain that a lot of youths are music driven so it becomes very important to reach them in their comfort zone.
“The youths today have a good ear for music than speeches and I think over 90 percent of the youths would spend more time listening to music, watching music videos than actually listening to the news or someone giving a speech.
So it’s for this reason that we need to put positive energy in our music so as to inspire a great future for our societies and the nation at large.” he says.
Drimz recently took part in the Triple V peace concert organized by
The Young Women in Action which was held in Lusaka at OYDC on 5th June.
“Just recently I had the blessing of being a part of the Triple V peace concert which aims at reaching out to people to encourage youths to vote and participate in civic matters and also to stay away from political violence.” says Drimz.
