|He is another entrant with the passion to promote the Kasama ‘culture’ and his first single, ‘Housewife’ featuring Muzo aka Afonso is proof enough Danido is ready for the music platform.|
Born Daniel Musongwa, and raised on the Copperbelt, Danido feels his music which he is calling ‘Kalimbeni’ will bring a link between the old Kalindulaa and the latest Zed beats.
“I am inspired by the kalindula and music found from the Northern Province which is called Imbeni. This music is mainly about the Bemba culture and I am using it to create a new sound which is blended with Kalindula,” Danido says.
He adds that he started his music after following the rich lyrical compositions of music from the late great Peter Kalumba Chishala as well as Peter Tsoti Juma including late Nashil Pitchen Kazembe among others.
Danido is currently preparing for his latest album whose singles will be released one after the other before the final product end of this year.
“My latest song, ‘Housewife’ is already on YouTube and other important musical sites. This is the way I want to promote it so that before I release my album, people will be aware of what I am willing to offer,” says Danido.
“I am promoting a special sound called ‘Kalimbeni’ which is basically about the rich Bemba culture in Northern Province. I am very humbled to work with the likes of Muzo and all those who share my aspirations.”
