Yo Maps’ ‘Try Again’ ganners over 5 million streams online ahead of launch


‘Try Again’, the recent chartbuster by Zambia’s musical icon, Elton Mulenga, has reportedly received five million streams online in just under a week of hitting the scene.

Popularly known as Yo Maps Yo, the latest hit song is said to have been composed to encourage people never to give up, no matter the situation they may find themselves in.

Immediately the album was dropped on social media, his fans and critics could not hold back, as they all rushed to Boomplay to feel the tracks.

Many locals fans have praised the artiste for his consistency and argue that helps him to connect with many hearts, while others have criticized him for dropping predictable vibes, which tend to become boring.

One thing to mention though is that the artiste has over the past few years developed a thick skin to criticism, which some say is sign of maturity in the music industry. Many have also shown outward hate to his wife, popularly known as ‘Kidists’, for interfering in his musical career.

Prior to the release of the album, Yo Maps Yo plans an album launch styled ‘Fill up Heroes Stadium.’

The event is slated for this month-end, with part of the proceeds going towards a Music School that Yo Maps plans to build in the capital city Lusaka.

He hopes the school will help other artistes to make it and not struggle as he did.
