Macky 2’s latest song titled “Tilizon” had the whole social media buzzing with so many negative reviews from Critics particularly Opposition UPND supporters. The Tilizon song is a dance song with the concept coming from the trending Treason saga Involving UPND President Hakainde Hichilema. This has led to many listeners thinking he was actually mocking the UPND leader.
In the song, Macky 2 depicts Treason as an act by a side chick who wants to take over from his wife but off course creatively manages to blend in the Motorcade issue and everything that Transpired during this year Kuomboka Ceremony. However, Macky 2 does not end there as he also mentions several issues aligned with UPND including the “Pakalitente” slogan.
However before his critics could talk more, the artiste has decided to retaliate though a Facebook post. Below is what he posted on his Facebook page.
“Usually i would ignore small talks especially on petty subjects. I feel i should respond to this because it borders on my freedom to express myself. This is the freedom that validates my living, as an artist and as a human being. I can not give it up for anything. I would do everything to defend my freedom to speak my mind no matter the cost.
My inbox is flooded with mixed setiments regarding my recent song TILIZON.
Firstly, my music is my opinion, if you don’t like it switch to something else. I do not go about shutting up people with different opinions from mine.
Whether Tilizon is a political song or not, i have no apologies and if for a minute you thought I will be slowed down by this, think again.
Just a reminder even the artists that supported and endorsed President Lungu have the freedom of expression in the same measure as those that didn’t support him. We are all equal in the eyes of the law.
