-MC- is an early 90’s baby sometimes known or referred to as Mad Chilz or Badmon in the creative scene.
MC fell inlove with the heart of the arts at a fairly tender age but only started writing and performing just before the age of 16 which isnt a coincidence. It took sometime to accept that he had such a keen interest because Africa is still catching onto just how useful the Arts are to a community an economy let alone country. Apart from poetry/hip hop other art forms such as drawing, painting, cooking and photography remain close to his heart. Knowing the demands of life cannot always be supported or fully covered by an income from the Arts, MC studied and completed a degree in Architecture overseas before coming back to work in Zambia’s construction industry.
This hasnt stopped the conscious artist from pursuing his dreams in the artistic sector of his life. MC says “They are 24hrs in a single day and if the greatest people to walk this earth are able to multi-task and carry many titles at once then who are we to shy away from pursuing each one of our passions in all the hours of each day we have been gifted with” also remarking “Wherever passion and will power meet there is a way to get it done”. MC is currently located in Lusaka but believes that we are at a turning point within the Music scene at large. The likes of Fela Kuti, Oliver Mtukudzi, Paul Ngozi as well as the new giants such as Wiz Kid, Cassper Nyovest and Slap dee have all paved the way in their respective countries and Africa at large.
Zambia has alot of catching up to do but we have the skillsets to do so. Both vernac, english, secular or gospel all have adequate representations as well as those who like to mix it up so lets open our minds and make products at a global standard. -MC-
