United Kingdom-based Malawian singer-songwriter, Malaika, has made her entry onto the music scene with the release of her first single Falling For You.

This saucy track features Zimbabwean musician Tytan.

The Zimbabwe-raised vocalist, born Sheila Mkhumba, says the Afro beat-inspired pop song, with a dancehall feel, challenges gender stereotypes encouraging women to go after what they want, in this context a man, instead of always waiting for the guy to make the first move.

“Far too many women are unfulfilled and unhappy in relationships because they don’t feel they can express themselves sexually or communicate their desires without running the risk of being labelled “wild” or accused of cheating,” states Malaika as she shares what inspired the song.

Falling For You was produced by UK-based producer, Rymez and was directed by Zimbabwean artiste and producer Jusa Dementor of Stage Work Films.
