Zambian musician Slap Dee has hit back at criticism that his new single ‘RATSA’ is a direct attack on the Zambian Road Transport Agency which has almost the same abbreviation like his new single. The Zambian Road Safety and Transport agency is abbreviated RTSA. Slap Dee added an extra “a” abbreviation in his single and says his song is not really a direct criticism of the Zambian Road Safety agency.
Explaining the song’s message in a a brief Chat with Iroko Africa, the rapper – real name Mwila Musonda – said the dance song which will be included on his forth coming album titled ‘The Business’ is about a frustrated man who seeks to change his attitude towards society after his partner had taken him for granted.
The angry man threatens to become as merciless as a RTSA officer. His explanation might possibly not convince some people because of the bad reputation of RTSA officers
International anti corruption watchdog Transparency International last year rated the Zambian police Service and Road Transport and Safety agency the leading most corrupt public institutions.
Other public institutions that were equally corrupt were the Ministry of Health, the National Registration Office, Ministry of Lands and Natural Resources, the Zambia Revenue Authority, ZESCO, the judiciary (courts), passport office and local authorities.
Slap Dee’s first single ‘Victorious’ was produced by XYZ entertainment CEO Raydo . Raydo described ‘Victorious’ as a typical hip hop song.
Both songs will be on his forthcoming third album under the XYZ Entertainment label set for release on September 13 2013.
“I am positive that my fans will love it. The project has new voices of Kantu, Stevo and many others.” Slap Dee said.
Slap Dee made history during the inaugural Zambian Music Awards early this year when he bagged six awards in various categories
