The Zambia Association of Musicians (ZAM) has demanded that a song called ‘Katundu Not Very Big’ be banned from radio and taken down from all online music promotion sites that have published it, describing it as morally repugnant.

The song by group called Sky Empire and produced by BX Exclusive makes mocking reference to the infamous video where a man is seen sexually molesting an unconscious woman while inviting other men to join him.

The song has also annoyed music legend and social activist Maiko Zulu who has labelled it “a reflection of our rotten society.”

Commenting on the song, the musicians’ body said: “It has come to the attention of the Zambia Association of Musicians (ZAM) that a music group called Sky Empire has released a song called ‘Katundu Not Very Big’ – produced by BX Exclusive. The song mocks a young Zambian woman of Petauke district who is reported to have been raped by a man who also filmed and published a video showing her nakedness. The rapist has since been arrested.”

ZAM urges all private and public media institutions, DJs, music promoters, bloggers and consumers of Zambian music to desist from playing, uploading and sharing the named song, saying “It is an insult to womanhood and must be condemned by all Zambians.”

The musicians’ body says the song in question does not only add further humiliation to the victim in of the said incident but indirectly glorifies rape by using the voice of the suspect.

“Though ZAM does not support artistic censorship, we strongly call for the banning of this material as it is morally repugnant and holds no place in the values of Zambians,” reads the statement by the Tivo Shikapwasha-led ZAM executive committee.

ZAM says he role of a musician is to educate and entertain the masses through songs that promote good morals.

“The song in question is a total opposite of what ZAM represents and must never be played publicly or privately. We further urge other musicians to remember their responsibility to society and use their influence and talents to uplift their various constituencies, further to which ZAM warns the aforementioned musicians behind the said tasteless material that degrades women to stop promotion of this material as it is unlawful.

“The association in consultation with ZAMCOPS will see to it that any musician who produces such songs will never be licensed to release any music or perform anywhere in the world,” warned the ZAM executive, adding that the association will not take lightly any attempt by any Zambian musician to disrespect women and girls.

“The above mentioned song must be banned with immediate effect and no radio station must play it. All online music promotion sites that have published the song are hereby cautioned to take it down immediately failure to which they risk being pursued by law enforcement authorities.”

The Petauke man who filmed and published his sexual assault on a seemingly unconscious woman has since been arrested and is in police custody.

Rodgers Mwanza, 38, was apprehended on Friday in Lilongwe, Malawi, where he had fled to upon learning that police where looking for him.

      • As a Jesusist. for every idle word a man speakth he shall give an account. Judge not so that ye may not be judged, for the mesure you use against your friend the same will be used against you…
        You see,,, Righteousness makes a nation great; sin(aka corruption/wickedness/lawlessness) is a disgrace to any people.
        The only time you will get serious is when find your own sister or mother or wife even yo daughter lavished mercilessly by a musically corrupted youth who thinks he himself is the LAW… ZAM & Maiko are not joking
        Do you even understand what 2 Timothy 3 means..” lovers of money more than God.(when one can do anything to make dollars/fame); Having a form of godliness” my brother read between lines ,check what has become of society/world (because of evil unthinkable imoral music), and be sober minded… Te nyimbofye ishi, ni nkondo.between Good & evil , Michael v The Dragon(Rev 12:7) Demons ingulu in society. But Jesus is Victor, He says,” forgive them Father for they know not what they do”, take it or leave it, or ukamba ati nishizende.chi ex prisoner.think again. Jesusist or Satanist very soon it will be fashionable..Bakeshibashani? Tell it on the that Jesus is coming again.

  4. As a Jesusist. I was once a Satanist…in the music industry . music video producer . Was aka Chilly Chilly Akapilipili(on the copper belt aka kopala)… spent some time(4yrs) in prison for murder(coz I became insane due to drag abuse)…
    You see… people DON’T want to take JESUS seriously…This Wicked evil Satanic movement(aka entertainment/music) the Devil (aka Lucifer) has raised (Masterminded) is preparing humanity to the last battle of Amagedon found in the Bible (Revelation of Jesus).this battle is centered in man’s heart(aka mind/spirit/soul/life and strength/actions). So Music has a big role of influence(subconscious level) and Satan and his agents are busy using this medium to subconsciously control(decive) mankind. Anyway since my realise from prison(2months ago) I’ve observed with deep saddness the moral decay (aka Corruption/Wickedness/lawlessness),Maiko Zulu has called it “a reflection of our rotten society”. I call it SATANISM, aka Satanic Words Against God…(against Jesus, anything against God’s Holy WORD), it’s either you are Satanist or Jesusist. Who is your master ? who do you serve when you produce those words aka actions. Let us sing/act to the glory of God in Jesus name. Amen

  10. Foolish man why can’t you propose a woman and have sex while she is awake than doing such a thing to some one who is as good as a dead person. Maybe you are not even man enough coz that girl had her pant on maybe you didn’t even do anything. Pliz arrest that man so that he can rot or repent while in prison.
