Seven months ago, when hip-hop artiste, Swish’s track, My Department, went viral and even swayed music buffs on such reputable channels as Channel O, everyone reckoned he was just a one of those proverbial one hit wonder.

The video, which premiered on January 14 for the first time, received some massive reviews on GOTV’s Channel O Africa as well as DSTV Channel O, making it one of the finest slams from across the Zambezi after Zone Fam’s Contolola. And only last week, the fast- rising rapper, who was born Farai Muzungaile, unleashed his newest track titled Currently, which has already caught the ears of some of the most established radio disc jockeys in West Africa.

Featuring award-winning rapper and producer, Slap Dee, the genius behind XYZ Entertainment, the song has been receiving some respected airplay on Ghana’s Okay FM and Hitz FM Radio stations. ‘’The single was released on September 11 and has made an impact on radio stations, both locally and abroad,’’ stated Swish, while adding that the single was produced by one of Zambia’s finest engineers and beat makers, Shom-C of Zero DB Studios.

The single talks about the current situation in the country, such as load-shedding, the nose-diving of the Kwacha against other currencies, as well as his once-upon-a-time stumbling blocks in his music career.

Meanwhile in March, prior to the release of My Department, Swish had also put out four other music videos which will be included on his ‘’Mixed-Tape’’ titled FaRaiDAY. The My Department video, which was shot and directed by, Lloydee from Vibrant Media Agency last year, features some of the most happening up and coming artistes such as Cyber King, Lilato and Mustang. Locally, the video has been aired both on Muvi Tv’s The Pipo’s Choice as well as ZNBC’s 3.7 Blaze show hosted by G-Wise. Last year, Swish released some of his most revealing and intriguing tracks on the market which included You Decide and FaRaiDAY under NXT Solutionz.

Just as in the same fashion as Zone Fam’s run-away winning video of Contolola, Swish is keeping his fingers crossed hoping his videos could also in the near future be nominated for the prestigious Channel O awards. At 26, Swish has, but, been one of the trendsetters of hip-hop rap-sauced music that has taken the local music by storm with the likes of Macky II, Yellow Man, Slap D, Chef 187 and Ice Kid doing justice to the music genre.

The womenfolk and the Christian music circles have also not been left out of the buzz because Cleo Ice Queen, Brisky, Mag44 and Tio, have also taken it to another level.


Its unfortunate that the nation has lost one of the greatest versatile radio DJ Zambia has ever had.

The death of Boogie C, to me didn’t come as a shock knowing he became a destitute and target of harassment in bars after leaving Q FM the station I still strongly feel has lost direction and urgently needs to be rebranded.

One would ask what happened at Q FM? Well strong rumors back in the days emerged that he became excited with fame to an extent of going on air drunk, which forced management to fire him.

The station gradually lost it’s popularity as the young energetic DJ had his own “Pwando” style of making people glued to the radio in anticipation for his show.
Life became tough for him, a number of his fellow former founding DJs at QFM neglected him, when he fell sick for some months and later recovered.

However, he couldn’t get back on radio because of his hot spot for a glass of Whisky.

Few years down the line he started playing at Roco Complex in Helen Kaunda, where he was verbally abused and mocked by some drunk men.

My friend and i once in a while we used to go listen to his selections on a bottle of whisky but surprisingly enough he never wanted to disclose his place or share his cell number which he constantly said he never had.

From his appearance one could tell that he was suffering and being denied by his closest friends.

Reading the news that he was found dead in a ladies toilet, where he spent nights for 10 months shows that there is no unity amongst radio DJs and those in the entertainment industry in Zambia.

Our entertainment industry is full of selfish quacks and wanting to see you suffer in life.

I am finding it ridiculous that some people are planing to honor him when he is no more.

In life, ungreatful people will always regard your hard work as useless!
