Our minds are meant to be creative especially artists but our very own Zambian artists are seemingly undermining that fact by copying other peoples hard-work and robbing off their time. To cut the story short our very own artists and producers are sampling or in other words stealing (Re-making) beats from international artists, this is why our music/products are not selling on the international market because manufacturers, producers, artists and inverters have somethin in common and thats doing what other people have done before, I remember reading a post by B’Flow on facebook where he criticised us Zambians of not supporting the fact that we didn’t recognize OC’s performance with akon but come on we need OC to feature Akon and set a record by beating chop my money by p square, its in Zambia where we hear of programmers making social networks that are similar or a replica to facebook.

“We must break the barrier to international deuces by forcing us artists to work harder in all angles and produce the best products because an artist without inspiration is worthless”

Our music is not getting much recognition in our very own mother land ‘Africa’ for example there was no Zambian artist present in the 2015 MTV African Music Awards(MAMA)nominations

To support the above heading, below is a list of Zambian music that sound almost or just the same with international music

1. Chef 187 f/ Jemax – Graveyard (p/ dice) = Meek Mill diss to drake(wanna know)
2. Muzo aka Alphonso – Crazy Barz(p/ Tonny Breezy) = Wale f/ Big Sean – Slight Work
3. Stevo – Nilipamutunda(p/ Mzenga Man) = Sarkodie – illuminati
4. Chef 187 f/ F Jay – Siniwala = AKA f/ Burna Boy – All Eyes on me
5. Macky2 f/ Wezi – Yes/No(p/ T Sean) = Nu Shooz – Should I say yes?
6. Willz Nyopole f/ Wezi – Toliwe(p/ Skillz) = Fally Ipupa – Sweet Life
7. T Sean – Tisue Nika Razor = Major Lazor – Watch Out For This

The list is endless but that case keep fans glued to international music because its not different from our new style of photocopying art. Lets wake up and showcase our culture to the world rather than bring other cultures to our door step.
