A diary of happenings at Chanters Lodge, Livingstone, Zambia with reflections on Zambia and personal matters too
Thanks to George da Soulchild Kaufela, co-host of our regular Sunday night radio show on Zambezi 107.7 fm for this interesting piece:
'Lvee' or rather Mr Vezzy as he is know today has been around on the local Zambian music scene for a while now. The "no sweat no sweet" rapper had taken a break from the now very competitive music industry but last year saw him pick up a 'Born 'n Bred' award in the category of Best Hip-Hop Video for his hit song "Ama Bad Boy", which signalled his return to the industry. This year his new single hit airwaves a couple of weeks ago receiving massive airplay - the new single is called 'Every Day (Nima Lota)' produced by King James for So' Good Ent.
On this song MrVezzy addresses his absence from the game and the name change from LV to MrVezzy he also touches on a wide range of current social issues such as the Liato case, the Chipolopolo AFCON dream as well as the rise of gossip sites like Kachepa360 and Tumfweko.
'Every Day (Nima Lota)' is the first track release from MrVezzy's forthcoming album which features collaborations with some prominent international and local artists. The album is set for release in early March 2012 - very soon in fact!
