Below is Namadingo’s Press Statement on Made-See:

PRESS RELEASE BY NAMARTISTS (FOR IMMEDIATE CIRCULATION TO MEDIA HOUSES

)Namartists, a home grown artist management group in Malawi founded by Dr. Namadingo, has followed recent media publications involving Medison Kapeni, otherwise known as Made-See with keen interest.

The said media publications have attracted mixed reactions from the public, which has prompted this Press Release.Made-See (a minor) entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) sometime in August 2020 through his mother Annie Nsaka with FDH Bank and Dr. Namadingo who happens to be the brand Ambassador for FDH Bank.

It was a condition precedent in the MoU that Made-See should enroll in a better school and pursue the educational program to the best of his abilities, and use reasonable efforts to complete the program. Made-See and his parent expressed deep interest in getting better education as compared to the school he was going to at that time stating that their main challenge was at that time School fees.

It was a further condition precedent that Namartists would produce an album for Made-See with the support of FDH Bank.At the risk of breaching confidentiality that comes with such agreements, it will suffice to state that FDH Bank did not release any money to Dr. Namadingo, but took steps to fulfill its obligations under the MoU in relation to the education program by paying directly to the school.

Dr. Namadingo shared the responsibility by making sure he had pocket money and all school needed materials.In relation to the album recording for Made-See by Namartists, this has been an ongoing project at the expense of Dr. Namadingo thus far.

As a corporate institution that it is, FDH Bank set certain conditions in the MoU which governed the relationship, and how monetary benefits would be unlocked by Made-See and no one else.However, it was recently brought to our attention with much disappointment that Made-See had been expelled from school, on grounds that we choose not to dwell into.

As Namartists, we remain committed to supporting local grown talent, and it gives us a sense of pride to see artists excel, regardless of who promotes them. Made-See is no exception to our beliefs, and he is at liberty to choose who he wants to work with going forward, given his misgivings. As an artist management group, we will not stand in his way or indeed the way of any person who feels called to step in and continue promoting his talent.The remaining Sum of One Million Kwacha from the donor (FDH Bank) is safe in the hands of the donor and protected by the MoU that was signed.

It was meant to pay for his album upon completion. We confirm that all recordings that have been done by Namartists for Made-See which include two singles (already released) and four instrumentals ready for voice recordings will be made available to his next friend free of any cost to Made-See, but at the expense of Namartists.
