  1. Big ups Slap, I hope you can be like Tupac or Bob Marley and use your talent to fight corruption and poverty in Zambia and not like your Dunana Reverse friend.


    • I thought T-Sean and Yo Maps were top dogs in Zambia.

      I also like the late P Jay and Kay Figo collaborations.

      I will try to listen to Slapdem and see why he is rated highly.

      Big up zed music.

      Big up Pilato. Keep on singing about this Koswe that steals during the long dark hours of load shedding.


    • The new music is like scrap metal. It is not Zambian music. To be truthful and without beating about the bush – it is trash.


  2. It is great honour and privilege to officially open the floodgates of insults from the sulky kopala crew


  3. Congrats Slap Dee, I watched you on Inside Africa pa CNN, you doing great things. In other news, the Kwacha has hit K15 to a dollar and for the first time since the Kwacha was rebased by that dead senile old man, the kwacha is now trading at 1:1 with the South African Rand. Big congratulations to that clown of a president called Lungu and his imbecilic Ministers for this milestone!!


  4. We behind you slap Dee, keep lifting the Zed flag higher. You’ve come way too far and this ain’t the time to back down. Please lock the nagativity door.


  5. so because some one is listed by a foreign news site,for zambians this is classed as the biggest success. Very embarrasing. No one who is important knows who this young chap is. What work has he done that you can proudly play on the international platform and be proud that it represents zambia? There are no zambian musicians in zambia..just nigerian, jamaican and american wannabes. and you call this music? that is why i stick to quality music like coldplay, paul ngozi,


  6. Slap d is a top artist his versatility and ability to rap in different languages coupled with his intelligence to grasp different concepts…he is uncomparable to your riffraffs
