Pilato Speaks Out On Helping Rapper Muzo aka Alphonso

Since 2019 started, so many Zambian music fans have blamed Kopala Swag -  a music lable on the Copperbelt land for failing to help its former artist Muzo aka Alphonso in resurrecting his faded career.

The accusations have since prompted some of the Kopala Swag top bosses to speak out about the same. In his official statement released on 15th April 2019, musician / activist Pilato confirmed to that, they (as a music lable) have never got any request from Muzo seeking for any help from the lable. Below is what Pilato had to say:-

Kopala Swag is a music label operating under Alpha Entertainments a registered entity in Zambia as required by the law.

The label was established with a view to identify, promote and support local artists across the country. Over the years Kopala Swag has promoted, supported and identified artists from different parts of the country. The label currently is actively working with Chef 187, Pilato, Macky 2, Drifta, Jemax, Drimz, Yo Maps plus many others.


The past few days we have been overwhelmed with public calls for the label to help Muzo, an artist we once signed but decided to leave on his own volition. We wish to remind the public that the contract between Muzo and Alpha Entertainments was prematurely cut by our colleague without any formal engagement with the management.

We do however understand the calls for us to consider helping the artist in question and we appreciate the faith that the Zambian people have shown in this regard. However, the calls for help are not specific and unfound. What should Kopala Swag or any of its affiliates do to help our brother? Does Muzo need help from us?


We ask the two questions because we understand that the availability of help does not always mean that it is welcome. MUZO has not requested for help from anyone of our members nor from the management.

We feel only Muzo knows when he needs help and where that help should come from. It is common knowledge that Muzo has consistently insulted and rubbished Kopala Swag, it's artists and it's affiliates without any reasonable cause. This however does not influence our judgement especially where young artists are concerned. The public would like to know that less than 2 years ago MUZO was reportedly arrested in Chambishi on the copperbelt.

We were informed and at our expense we sent for help, our CEO Mr. Mulaza Kaira and his colleague Mr. Chama Fumba rushed to the scene and secured Muzo's release. We were not thanked and we didn't expect to be thanked. We were instead showered with insults both in music and in statements.

This is the reality we live in and despite all this, we are committed to helping any artist in need of our help and we would not feel shy to help MUZO again. Our position is that he himself must state that he needs help and what help he needs from us.

Speaking to Zaet has to urged he public to respect the individual decisions made by Muzo and seek to engage with him instead of assuming the worst for him.
