“It is not a secret anymore phones are killing our relationships, so l composed this poem to alert people that phone(s) can destroy our relationships if not properly handled,” said Amfumu Khondiwa in an interview with Malawi Voice on Wednesday.
The man behind “Adaponda ndi Mapazi Satana”, Amfumu also warned ‘lover birds’ against exchanging cellphones which in the 21st century has become diary for keeping top secrets.
“It is good to exchange cellphones in relationships but in these days phones are keeping secrets that if a partner see them they bring cracks in relationship,” concluded Amfumu Kenneth Khondiwa. “………Komatu dziwani kuti iyi ndi ndakatulo chabe yolembedwa ndi Amfumu Ndipo Chenjezo Ndilakuti musakayeselele ku nyumba (Do not try this at home),” reads the warning in the last stanza of the Foni Ya Wokondeka poem.
