BLANTRE-(MaraviPost)-Blantyre’s Magistrate court on Monday slapped Andson Alfred also known as Mesho with a two year jail term for his song insulting Islam.
The court has also sentenced his his producer to one year in prison.
Mesho, the artist behind disturbing songs perpetrating violence among religious and ethnic groups was on Saturday last week arrested in Mulanje by the Malawi police.
In the track which is seven minute and 26 second long, the singer calls for the elimination of mosques from Malawian land so that people should be able to consume pork, a meat which is deemed as unclean among the Muslim community.
The singer has also attacked Christianity in which he lobbies for the removal of Seventh Day churches so that people can freely eat Mlamba (catfish) which is also unclean among the Seventh Day congregants.
This development follows another incident in which another singer, Chavura, produced a song titled “Nzakupanga Rape” in which he was vowing to rape a girl who has been denying to having sex with him.
The track which was released in 2018 also brought anger among Malawians and the artist was arrested for the disturbing track.
The convict Chipwaila (Mesho) 29, hails from Binali village, Traditional Authority (T.A) Nkanda in Mulanje district.
