Reviews:

MTMTMK was recorded over five weeks in a makeshift studio in Esau's hometown of Lilongwe, Malawi. We had a big step with the second album we had to evolve, Johan notes. This time we wrote, produced and recorded together simultaneously the way it should be done. It was a much more collaborative effort. The album features guest spots by Amadou & Mariam, Baaba Maal and K'naan, among others. Pitchfork is premiering the video for the track Yoshua Alikuti. Filmed in the Kiamaiko slum in Nairobi and directed by Kenya-based Village Beat, the video spoofs Lil Wayne s A Milli video.
