  • Musicians Told to Be Careful With Lyrics

    CensoredLuanda - Angolan musicians and students defended Thursday in Luanda, the need of artists to assess and be more careful with the content of the lyrics of their songs, with attention to the rescue of moral and civic values.

    This view was supported when they were asked to comment on the messages of some songs, mostly in the Kuduro style, whose lyrics are obscene and violate good moral of the Angolan society.

    Singer Dog Murras advised his colleagues as opinion makers to evaluate the content of their lyrics, given the loss of moral values in the society.

    Speaking to ANGOP, Dog Murras deplored the fact that these songs are played in children parties or places much visited by children.

    According to the artist, taking into account the years of peace the country is enjoying, musicians should begin to realise their role as opinion makers, because certain people have music as inspiration for behavioural change.

    In his turn, Margareth do Rosario suggested that that the Ministry of Culture should be stricter on this.
