Musician Mundia Mukubesa aka Petersen has announced that his latest project, ‘ King Solomon’ will be released on the 26th of this month.
The singer, who has in the recent past been active with his fans through his live music performance on Thursdays at Lusaka’s The Frog Pub is expected to attract a lot of followers with this new project that is set in his usual eclectic style.
The album’s title-track ‘King Solomon’ is a man’s prayer to reject the spirit and lifestyle of the biblical, Solomon the king of Israel who had several wives and concubines.
In the song, Petersen uses himself as an example of the many men that seem to be ‘rich’ and famous but are faced with a lot of temptations from the beautiful women they meet on their call to duty.
Well-known for his usual satire and metaphorical expressions, Petersen uses the song to picture King Solomon as a man who lustfully embraced many women, a spirit he strongly asks God to help him reject in the song.
The singer, who now calls himself Hon. Apostle Petersen Zagaze Banda brings to the table many great songs on the album that seriously reflect on Zambian society such as “ Waya,” “ Kudya Nikulanganana” and “ Gile”.
Typical of the singer’s rhythm, style and rich lyrical composition witnessed from previous works like “Job 13:13,” “Munyaule” and various hit songs, “King Solomon” album is another testimony of why Petersen is among top Zambian artists.
The “Nyandule” singer who has worked with different producers on this latest project is never short of controversy and deep refelection as this will be identified in songs like “ Ba Zesco”, “ Boma ni Boma,” and “ Vala Condom” among other songs on the album expected to be out soon on the market in many leading music outlets.
