George da Soulchild aka Kaufela, up and coming Zambian DJ and musician, as well as co-host of our Sunday night radio show ‘The Chanters Lodge Experience with the Milli Jam Ingredient featuring George da Soulchild’ on Zambezi 107.7 fm, regularly guest writes for our blog and let me have this gem for publication:
2011 was the year that saw a ‘step change’ in music video production for Zambian muscians. Zambians embraced HD and advanced video technologies. Here’s the 10 YouTube Best Zambians videos for 2011. The picture above is of the sensational Macky 2!
1. Macky 2 – Mami
2 .Romario – Ichikonko
3. Zone Fam – Mbama
4. Mutinta – Chungwa
5. Chibo & Dandy Krazy
6. Kay Figo –Kanyelele
7. JK – Nafikilisha
8. Brian – No More Kawilo
9. Bryan & Exile – Nganali Kombweke
10. Why – Mampi (Official Video)
All eyes are set on 2012 as most music video producers and directors aim for international fame. My guess is more Zambian music videos will be aired on Trace TV, MTV Base and other International music video stations.
