For "Maseka Mukanda Susubeli," a young man born in the town of Mazabuka (Nakambala Estate) Southern Province, it all began with this simple understanding: "I knew poetry had existed, but I had no idea what it was until the day God spoke the words that influenced my decision.
In 2012, I did a little research, I listened to some Ambassador (gimme that bible), Lecrae, Andy Mineo, Beautiful Eulogy, Humble Beast, Pompi and the list goes on and on. These artists helped me make a U-turn in life," said Makesa.
"They made me realise there was hope in every step I took even when hypocrisy surrounded me. Each time, I looked up to God and draw encouragement from songs by friends and fellow artists like Massin, Paul Payne837, Malachi and Tony Grammz."
"Free But Caged" is a poetic track from Makesa, and he prays and hopes that you find inspiration when you listen. (Download)
