Zambian musician RUFF Kaida, who released his fourth album in 2013. Says his fans should not expect any album from him anytime soon.
Ruff Kaida has four albums under his name; All For You which had Wekatemwikwa and Sinifuna Day; Matured which boasted Umwaume Tapwa; The King that has Mwechilibwe and Bwete; and The Naked Truth which housed Nikamisiya and Umunandi.
His latest release is Wamaka, a song that is talking about what he has gone through and revealing the side that people do not know about him.
As he is not thinking of releasing one, because albums do not get sold in Zambia. As Zambian people prefer to download the music, instead of buying the actual album.
“In Zambia, we don’t sell albums, nobody buys an album. So’ I don’t see any reason to do an album, like who will buy?
People just download, and they download for free, they haven’t even learned how to buy online,” he says. Ruff Kaida says this is the reason why he has just been releasing singles. just so that he does not completely go quiet.
“It’s my first time I’m revealing about my personal stuff where I had to consult my family before I could drop it so it’s something deep,” he says. “I’m also talking about my past, what I went through, my house getting burnt stuff like that and how I’ve managed to triumph.”
