Renowned Zambian music artist Mundia Mukubesa, famously known as Petersen, says the only way young people will accomplish their dreams is by not indulging in bad vices such as drug abuse. He also appealed to the Livingstone youth to take full responsibility in keeping the tourist capital clean, even after the UNWTO general assembly is long over, he further encouraged them to fully participate in clean politics and said they should refrain from being used as political tools of violence .
Petersen, controversial for his #Bufi song which features Pilato, cited that Bflow and Macky2 among others are some of the artists who don’t drink and smoke but are living their dreams. Petersen, who recently got rid of his dreadlocks because he doesn’t like the dryer heat and because he had suffered stigmatization from the law enforcement agencies on suspicion of smoking marijuana, says he has started a new chapter in the Zambian music industry. He has subsequently changed his stage name from Petersen to ‘’Honourable, Apostle Petersen Zagaze Banda, Mr Speaker Sir’’ – he says the change was mostly influenced by his fans as somehow he feels he speaks for them!
The artist was hosted last week by George and E-vibes on the mighty breakfast show on Zambezi FM.
