Malawi’s 73-year-old amapiano queen Jetu apologises for abusive language

By Burnett Munthali

The 73-year-old Malawian amapiano artist Jetu has  issued a public apology for using abusive language.

This incident has gained attention given Jetu’s prominence in the music scene, particularly for her recent hit “Chakwaza.”

Jetu, whose real name is Christina Malaya, has been a significant figure in the Malawian entertainment industry, initially gaining fame through comedy and later transitioning to music after the death of her husband in 2019.


Jetu’s apology reflects her acknowledgment of the impact of her words and her commitment to maintaining a positive influence in the community.

Despite this controversy, she remains focused on her music career, continuing to tour and perform, especially with her upcoming shows in South Africa.
