Roberto releases Mailo

AWARD-WINNING singer Roberto (below) has released a new song titled Mailo (tomorrow), a combination of dancehall and R n’ B rhythms whose lyrics highlight the current tendency where individuals fall in love with strangers on social media.
In an interview, Roberto, renowned for his internationally esteemed Amarulah song, describes Mailo as a unique New Year melodious tune that will keep his fans’ ears close to the speaker.
“A danceable and sing along song, Mailo, talks about the current social media trends where people meet online and crave to start a relationship with someone they hardly know.
“It’s a story of how someone is willing to sacrifice what they have just to locate and meet their social media crush,” the African Muzik Magazine Awards nominee explained.
Some lyrics in the three-minute and 20-second track read: “I don’t believe in cyber love, but I am willing to try…Can I get to meet you mailo, I really wanna see you mailo, I can get you a Visa mailo.”
But what does Roberto, who wrote and produced Mailo, think of social media relationships?
“Social media is used for various reasons, some of them good others bad, but I have seen relationships that started from social media working well, others even got married after meeting in person,” the Eponaba singer said.
Mailo is already trending on various social media sites and its video has been submitted to Channel O.
And once Mailo gets the attention it deserves from the fans, Roberto says he will later release another must listen to song titled Dream, which features Nigerian singer Reekado Banks and Zambia’s General Ozzy.
“In about a month and half time, I will release another song called Dreams which encourages people to focus and follow their dreams regardless of the challenges they face on the way,” Roberto said.
The year 2016 appears to be an ambitious one for Roberto because after the release of Dreams, which also has a video, the Salaula vocalist plans to hold his first ever album launch for his all-time hit, Amarulah.
