The ruling Patriotic Front (PF) party has demanded an apolology from musician and social commenter Pilato for what it terms as ‘defamation’ of President Edgar Lungu.

PF media, director Brian Hapunda, told journalists that Pilato must issue an apology for his ‘insulting’ song or ‘face the consequences.’

Hapunda accused the copperbelt-based artist of lacking respect for the country’s presidency, adding that the ruling party will not sit idly and watch the musician defame the President.

Pilato, who has gained notoriety for his politically charged lyrical content, has unleashed a rendition of  the 1970s hit ‘Aphiri anabwera’, which he has titled ‘Alungu anabwera’, in which he satirically mocks the ruling Patriotic Front and what became of it after President Micheal Sata’s death.

In apparent reference to President Lungu, he mocks the recent merger of the vanquished former ruling party the MMD with the PF through numerous by-elections.

Pilato goes on to satirically play around with a little known ‘Lungu’, who emerges out of Chawama with a suit case stashed with ‘Jameson’ and other known whiskeys.

The song has now been widely shared on social media much to the annoyance of Lungu’s sympathisers.

Pilato, born Chama Fumba has in the past caused controversy when he labeled late President Micheal Sata as a ‘lying step-father’ in his other politically charged song with Petersen titled ‘Bufi’ in 2013.
