Title: Show Love
Produced By: Ace
Hiphop music is all about appreciation and criticism. In this song of almost 03:08 minutes, performed by One Time Entertainment (O.T.E)”Show Love” came up with a message to their fans in a sad tone according to the lyrics.
Produced by their in-house producer of all time Ace. The song centered on how fans or music lovers show fake love to artists. This hypocrite is around in music scene where people show love when you are dead or not doing music anymore due to some issues like financial problems.
The hook done by Theme expresses unspoken feelings artists have in their minds, because fans throw shades when they are down saying anatha!!!
“Show Love be my nova-king, Show love you’re my everything,You know if am down,You are the one to blame”…
In first verse Theme plead for motivation and support because artist face alot of woes to bake music. From financial situation, mentally and other things, things that can lead them down. Last bars of his verse he explained how fans react to when artist is no more “They recognize you after you stop breathing, Sounds familiar that’s too cliche”
In verse two Crimson North pattern his style on how he do music for love. He focuses on his dream that oneday music will bring a payslips every month if they are selling their materials. “My dream is big wanna live up in hills, Cuddle a lick I know my dreams will pay the bills”
Show Love is an anthem to all artists based on facts, on how fans treat musicians by putting them on social media statuses or looking for their music when they die. Not only that leaking their music projects like Albums, Extended Playlists, Mixtapes and other collections when they are suppose to buy.
The beat selection, lyrics and flow made heartbeat when you’re listening. O.T.E Got The Place On LockDown as their tagline in every track gives you hope on what is coming up from the booth.

Urban music lovers across Malawi have applauded Member of Parliament for Blantyre City South, Hon. Noel Lipipa for the support he has shown towards arts. It is really rare for political figures in Malawi to recognize and support local talent and arts thereby the action Hon. Lipipa has shown has surprised the urban youth society.

In an interview with the Member of Parliament concerning what led him to support urban talent even when this is not a campaign period, he said, “I love and respect art. I feel youths in art have potential in contributing to the national economy only if supported in the right away.”
When asked about the future he predicts for Urban arts, Noel Lipipa further said, “The direction is unclear and the future looks unpromising. We must begin loving ourselves as a nation to appreciate our art. Patriotism is key to all we want to see in Malawian art, therefore government has a duty to inculcate if not promote patriotism. Government should start in schools through history and civics: our history that is”
Commenting on the action carried out by the Blantyre City South MP, HipHop Artist Third Eye said, “ Music is life. Music unites. Music is of high value and the action that Hon. Lipipa has done is a sign of love and Respect for the culture, and for this, he deserves my respect.”

In a lengthy post on her social media platforms that thanked her fans for the numerous birthday wishes, the Gospel artist also shared that she planned to spend her birthday this year by giving, unlike previous years where her birthdays were about receiving.
A Day after her birthday , the artist posted, “Yesterday I spent my birthday with 45 orphans at Chilungamo Orphanage in area 23, we ate and drunk and I donated a few items like sugar, soaps, lotions, Colgate, ufa waphala, school books and the alike, it was amazing, the joy in these kids. My point of this post is it does not require riches or so much wealth to touch someone inneed, the little we consider pleasure on dinner and wine kaya road trips can actually feed and supply essentials to 45 kids inneed. Lets reach out and touch, God’s love is what they need. Make a difference today. Those who can the kids at Chilungamo still need our help.”
According to the living legend Wendy Harawa, she stressed that giving does not necessarily mean that one has to have plenty but rather the little we have are plenty to those in need.
