In addition to the tremendous local support , the video has also gotten a positive response from African celebrities such as Ghanaian rapper D Black, former Big Brother housemate Pokello Nare , Ghanaian TV/Radio personality Berla Addardey among others . Further to that, a well-known director from the US ,who has done work for artists such as Diddy, Big Sean, YG and others caught wind of the video and reached out to congratulate them.
The positive feedback is testament to the strides Zambian Music is making in reaching a wider audience outside our boarders .





  1. Headline is misleading. Not sure whether he is one who has personally gone viral or it is his piece of music that has gone viral.

  2. It’s actually a very decent song and decent video too. More American R&B sounding tune than Zambian ‘rap’… but decent nonetheless.
