Kabunya is irrepressible

Another exciting music collaboration between Namibia and Zambia.

11 October 2019 | Art and Entertainment

DJ Siya and Petersen Zagaze from Zambia have teamed up for a summer hit titled Kabunya which has gone viral online.

Even though it was officially released last week Friday, DJ Siya shared the song with some of his contacts prior to the official release date, a move which has helped the song gain popularity.

In an interview with tjil, DJ Siya mentioned that this is his third collaboration with Petersen Zagaze and he is grateful for the positive reception it is getting. “People love the song because it has a very good message. In plain terms Kabunya means walking slowly but surely, and most importantly not giving up.

“Even though it is up-tempo it is still a very emotional song because it talks about people that feel like they are nothing in this world and are treated badly. On the song we are advising those who are doing well not to look down on others because you do not know what the other person will become tomorrow,” added DJ Siya.

The DJ announced that he is not going to drop a new body of work anytime soon as he takes a break of two years between albums. “My last album came out last year and I have just released Kabunya. I have another single in the pipeline but I will give this one enough time before I follow it up with a new song,” he said. He shared that plans to complement Kabunya with a music video are on track and he projects to shoot it at the end of October.

Even though the storyline of the music video will be about a young village boy who moves to town in search of a better life, DJ Siya said that people who are doing videos to the #KabunyaChallenge may stand a chance of being included in the official music video.

“The script of the music video is done already I am just waiting to see Petersen Zagaze's schedule and see when he is available,” he said.

The song is available for requests on radio and online.
