Manxebe says xenophobic lyrics are for fun

Creatives across the globe are using their influence and power to help world leaders to combat the deadly virus that not only changed livelihoods but took many lives too. Namibian creatives too have joined the cause with many hosting free events online as well as creating safety messages in their craft. Musicians Buti Vuitton, Sesfikile and Manxebe recently released a song titled Corona which sees the artists advising members of the public on measures to keep the virus at bay. 

The verse by Manxebe on the catchy Amapiano song however has xenophobic slurs to which he says is nothing serious. The lyrics in Oshiwambo say kala kokule nomuChina which when loosely translated to English mean stay away from the Chinese. 

“ I just said that for the fun of it. The rest of the message from the song is pretty serious and we want everyone to please adhere to them and that is why we made the song,” he said.

The song is currently at 3.1 K views on YouTube.
