With the festive fever already sweeping across and entertainment taking centre stage during this period, Kwasa Kwasa artist, Lungisani ‘More Fire’ Marudu has dropped his sixth album titled Mfana wa taxi.
The album promises to be a banger during this festive season. Just like in his previous albums, More Fire sings in both Setswana and Ikalanga in the new album. Among some of the songs to watch out in this album are Monate mpolae and Mmuta ka katse, which has already become a hit among the Kwasa Kwasa fans who follow the talented singer religiously. The talented More Fire, as his fans call him, says his eight-track album was recorded at Noble Sound Studio in Kopong.
The CD sleeve was designed at JJ Graphics. In an interview with Arts & Culture, More Fire said since its release, the album has been doing well in the market. He stated that the sales have been promising considering how difficult it is to sell music these days. “Talking about my latest album, I think it is good and the sales are not that bad under the circumstances. The album was recorded at Noble sound studio in Kopong,” he said. He stated that he has received good support ever since he dropped this album. Relaying his musical journey, the former Botswana Defence Force (BDF) soldier said he started to be wholly involved in the music industry in 2007. “At the time I was still with the BDF.
I used to work with the likes of Jeff Matheatau who was already established,” he explained. Although he released his first album in 2007 titled Ndokutshamba, he stated that it was in 2012 when he decided to quit the BDF to go fully into music. “I wanted to do music full time. I got bookings to perform at both cooperate shows and individually organised festivals,” he added. More Fire said he is living his childhood dream as he has always wanted to be a singer as he was born with the love for music. “I was singing from a young age at school and was also the lead singer of our formation traditional group for eight years at BDF. so I have always been a music person,” he said. Balobi said he is currently juggling between his music career and businesses, as he has a security company called Balobi Security and also runs a car rental business called City Car Rental.
