“The album is about realities and reflections of the society.
“It encompasses lessons learnt overtime in life and in the music industry and shows how Winky D has matured over the years as an artiste”.
Banda also said that a lot of time an effort was put during the production of their latest offering.
“People should brace themselves because this project is something that was done with a lot of patience in order to come up with appealing music.
