Music from Malawi – Licius Banda

Lucius Banda is a Malawian musician and politician. Until August 2006, he was an MP for the district of Balaka North, but lost his seat because he was convicted of having fake academic qualifications. He was sentenced to 21 months of hard labour in Zomba prison,he was released three months and two appeals after his arrest. This experience inspired one of his albums, Cell 51 Maximum.  In 2010 he released another album, 15-15- my song, which was banned by the state broadcaster.  This is his song “Tsiku Lobwera Yesu”
