Zambia: Danny to Be the Voice of the Voicless

DANNY Kaya, Masiku Onse, Yakumbuyo, Champion, and many other album titles you may want to use as the last name has finally broken the silence by becoming the Voice of the Voiceless (VoV).

Mid April, Danny is expected to release his eighth studio album coincidentally containing eight tracks mostly produced by Mad House studios new producer - Maly.

Maly is in Danny's Mo Fire band and plays the keyboard while apart from that he has produced 50 percent of the album.

To promote the album and its new single Kwa na Ku which talks about the unfairness of the living standards in shanty compounds popularly known as Kwa and high residential areas known as Ku, the Kaya singer as released a video for the Kwa na Ku song.

With the eighth album on the cards and Danny's only fourth video after Masiku Onse, Jon and Kaya, Kwa na Ku video was short by Danny's new video studio which is manned by a producer called Rasta.

Danny told Times entertainment that the reason for not doing videos for the past five albums was because there were no good video producers and that the production was poor.

"We've been prompted to set up our own video studio under Mad House production because of poor videos that have flooded the market," Danny explained.

The singer was, however, quick to mention that the Zambian music video industry has greatly improved of late.

The Voice of the Voiceless (VoV) album will feature fellow heavyweights in the likes of Exile, JK and Runell. Some of the titles on the album are 90 minutes, Love and Age, Mainini and As Long As.

The VoV album, according to Danny, will talk about issues that affect the common man in the society and other issues that are not talked about but affect people.
