Vatice Mashauko escapes the modern day wifi linked associations and settles us with Mumba featuring Dee Walker in some rural setup. Dee is equally manifestive giving a performance we all can enjoy, cultured from the history graduations and the enriching travels through the diversities of Zambia.

 

 Importantly, in Nkantemya Ntemya, we soon develop the undeniable longing and this sweet consistency with nature. Our allotrope guitarists and folk artist denies us nothing soft, sure, philosophical, granted and true.

Mumba Yachi pushes into simplicity but elevated! His allusions are special with a closeness to the art. The short film creates and invokes the longing most of us experience after some break in life.

Its associative and its reference to turbulence [infula yakalalampunga] and misunderstandings [Eicho tawaufwile nomusowa wandi, Musowa wachitemwiko] found in relationships helps Mumba touch to the ground of many Zambians. 

 

Mumba Yachi – NKantemya Ntemya Lyrics

[Bridge]

Wee nkantemya ntemya kandi wayakwisa lelo i need you

Wee nkantemya ntemya kandi wayakwisa lelo i miss you

Wee nkantemya ntemya kandi now don’t you know that i love you

Huuhu!! Huuhu!! Huuhu!!! i love you

 

Nkantemya ntemya kandi ine wayakwisa

Umosokota wandi ine wafitisha

Mona nomba wafwilwa ukupwisha

Ichilaka wampele wemwine

 

[Bridge] x2

Wee nkantemya ntemya kandi wayakwisa lelo i miss you

Wee nkantemya ntemya kandi now don’t you know that i love you

Wee nkantemya ntemya kandi wayakwisa lelo i need you

Huuhu!! Huuhu!! Huuhu!!! i love you

Ndeshingwanfye no bulanda nekafye

Kwati shaishibe ichibumbwa ngaiwe

Ubushiku wa fyutwike no mutima wandi

Utulumba twalebyata kwati ni nkalamo

Eicho tawaufwile nomusowa wandi

Musowa wachitemwiko wa eeh eeh 

Isamune nkwebe ifyo ngufwa pali iwebo
