After releasing her debut album, Unforgettably Yours almost two years ago, songstress, Scarlet has announced plans to release her second album in the first quarter of 2015.
Scarlet says her new project will be a transition from her debut album that was a representation of her entire body of work.Describing it as a concept album, Scarlet shared in an interview that over 90 percent of the album was based on verses from the Bible.“I’m aiming for March or April and this one is a concept album, Scarlet explained. “I’m telling a story about a girl and her experiences through phases of life.”

She said so far she had written four of the songs to feature on the new album and disclosed that one song in particular would feature gospel artiste, Pompi.Among the people helping Scarlet’s second album are James Sakala of the Elect Band, Taonga Sakala, also known as Taz and producer Mutamula Mwale.As the album is being recorded live, Scarlet said most of it will be produced by Ben Blazer of Blazer studio.Though work is still in progress, the artiste expressed optimism at the opportunity to collaborate with more artistes for the project.

In the meantime, Scarlet is gearing up for her last show of the year which is set for November 1 at Mulungushi International Conference Centre.She has joined forces with Bittersweet Zambia for an acoustic show which she has put together for the majority of her fans at an affordable charge.“Some people complain that they want to come to my shows but they are pricey so I teamed up with Bittersweet for something more affordable,” Scarlet shared.Her fans can look forward to performances of songs from her current album and a couple from her next album.

Zambia Daily Mail: Amarulah is The in Thing

NOT for the first time, award-winning singer and songwriter Roberto has hit the right note with his song Amarulah getting over 50, 000 downloads, a true testament to itspopularity.On his part, Roberto has been paying tribute in several tweets to the artistes who have featured on his album such as Cleo Ice Queen, Slap D, Zone Fam, General Ozzy and Chef 187 among others.Zone Fam and Slap D have featured on the remix of Amarulah, which despite some fans saying it is not as good as the original, has still proven popular.   

“I could not wait to work with these guys. True story is Jay Rox met with me at Manda Hill and threatened that he might hack my social media accounts if he did not get to hear a remix, then met Yung Verbal who demanded for new hair spray. I feared for my life and that’s show Zone Fam jumped on the remix lol. Just Joking,” he tweeted.“True story is I always wanted a song with Zone Fam because to be honest, this is the Best Group in Zambia. I could not resist having my brothers on the song, and I think this is the first of many songs to come.


“Slap D knocked the hinges on this [Amarulah] remix in international style. This means Slap D and Ozzy are the only artistes to feature on three of my albums. Loads of respect for this brother of mine. We had planned on a song to do together and finally the remix. Big ups Mwila Musonda for hoping onto the #1712_amarulah Album! My Brother to the bone.”

Roberto has also reserved some praise for Chef 187, Cleo Ice Queen and Reekado Banks.
“Nifuna Uzibe on the #Roberto_1712_Amarulah features Chef 187, Kopala’s finest product. This guy has skills that can’t be measured. Salutes to Chef, This song was recorded the day Pilato was launching his album at Club Zed. Recorded at BrathaHood Studio, brother murdered the track, Hands down Chef 187,” he tweets.
He says Cleo, who features on the song Fall with Ghanaian artiste Stonebwoy “murdered” the track and “loves her skills.”

SINGER and songwriter Angela Nyirenda is launching her new album titled ‘Salary’ after which she will embark on a nation-wide tour which will start in Lusaka and end in her home town of Chipata.It’s Makewane music through-out. Angela, who burst onto the scene in 2004, wants to take her career to another level, 11 years after her first single release and seven years since her last release ‘Zambian Girls’.“The long-awaited album will be launched in a series of spectacular Computickets events in Lusaka on 2 October, 2015 at the prestigious Government Complex, followed by a family show at Belvedere Lodge on 3 October.

Ms Nyirenda then intends to take the show on the road and give Zambians all around a feel of her new sound,” says Munyumba Mutwale of VL Talent, who is managing Angela.“The multi-lingual album, featuring songs in Kaonde, Bemba, Nsenga, Ngoni, Tonga and English is produced by Moses Sakala of Sakala Arts Centre and is said to be his best work yet.“The critically-acclaimed producer continues to work behind the scenes in ensuring that the production is nothing short of excellent.

Angela continues to touch lives with her music, especially following the tragic loss of her child to heart disease.” Angela has been inspired to join the efforts of the National Heart Coalition of Zambia in contributing to the philanthropic aspiration of one day opening a hospital for heart patients and reaching out to those who have lost loved ones through her music.“In this light, Ms Nyirenda has pledged that part of the proceeds of this album will go to the National Coalition to help with the work they are doing in Zambia.”
