A song by Malawian musician Sonyezo is topping sales on Malawi Music Store, the country’s leading online platform for hosting, streaming and purchasing music.

Titled ‘Lokolo’, the song is now Malawi’s bestselling song only a month after its release.

‘Lokolo’ takes over Tay Grin’s ‘Tola’ featuring Vanessa Mdee, which Sonyezo also produced and appeared on.

‘Tola’ was the bestselling song in Malawi since 1 April 2017. Both artists are selling their music via local payment methods such as Mpamba, Airtel Money, National Bank of Malawi, PayPal and PayGo.

Also available on iTunes, Google Play and Amazon, ‘Lokolo’ hit the Malawi Music Store on 4 June. “New Music in the store.  ‘Lokolo’ is available to all registered customers for as low as MK100/US$1. To buy it, click here,” a Malawi Music Store Facebook post reads.

Sonyezo says ‘Lokolo’ is his first song to be sold online.

“I’ve always put out singles for free and this time it was risky because I’ve never sold a single,” he said.

“It’s awesome to see the support and appreciation of my music that my fans and family are showing me.

This is a motivation to put out more quality music that can sell worldwide.”

The news comes amid uncertainty in the country about whether musicians should make their music available online.

Malawi is among the countries hit hard by piracy, mainly through the use of social networking and messaging platforms such as WhatsApp and free download music sites.

    I am curious to find out what blog platform you happen to be using? I'm experiencing some small security problems with my latest site and I would like to find something more risk-free. Do you have any recommendations?

    One more thing. It's my opinion that there are a lot of travel insurance sites of trustworthy companies that allow you to enter a trip details and acquire you the estimates. You can also purchase the international holiday insurance policy on the internet by using your credit card. All you have to do is always to enter all travel specifics and you can be aware of the plans side-by-side. Only find the plan that suits your financial allowance and needs then use your credit card to buy them. Travel insurance on the web is a good way to check for a dependable company for international travel insurance. Thanks for sharing your ideas.

    One other issue is when you are in a predicament where you do not have a co-signer then you may actually want to try to wear out all of your educational funding options. You can get many grants or loans and other scholarship grants that will offer you funding to support with school expenses. Thanks a lot for the post.
