He also acknowledged that the direction of that particular song, “Country Side,” was greatly influenced by Black Sherif.

The 10-track album “Jamz” features nine collaborations with well-known African musicians and one solo track.

King Promise is featured in the lead single, “Labadi,” which has already been released.

Taxi driver Joel Ngonga said he had been looking for fuel for 24 hours: “I’ve been searching for fuel maybe four times today. When I go to a fuel station, they say it’s finished.” Malawi’s energy regulator says a severe lack of foreign currency is to blame for the crisis. The country is facing one of its worst economic crises with rising inflation rates that have seen the cost of food skyrocket.

The Malawian government depreciated the kwacha by 25% in May in an effort to stabilize its declining foreign exchange reserves. However, the action caused a dramatic rise in food prices and inflation.

Protesters demanding President Lazarus Chakwera’s resignation have spilled over their frustration with the nation’s economic plight into the streets.

The government has requested additional time to address the situation and claims that the president recognizes the anger of the populace.

The 19 million-strong country in southern Africa has the fourth-highest proportion of the global population living in extreme poverty.
