Prime Time Media has announced a latest addition to its stable, King Chambiecco.
Born Happy Mguza but better known by his stage name King Chambiecco, he is a Malawian dancehall artist famously known for blending traditional genres with dancehall music as well as unique rapping and singing style.
“We are happy to welcome a new artist to our firm and I must say we are so impressed with our latest signing. He would be another success story just like Gwamba and Nesnes, who are scheduled to release their debut albums later this year,” said Prime Time Media CEO Edward Kankhomba.
Raised in Chitete in Kasungu, King Chambiecco developed a keen interest in music at a very tender age. He grew up listening to artists like Beenie Man, Bounty Killer, Sizzla, Elephant Man, Mad Character, Luciano and Buggle Tanks.
“Together with his peers, King Chambiecco formed a band using homemade instruments. As time passed, the band started to grow and made an impact in their community. When King Chambiecco reached secondary school, he started interacting more with people in the music industry and this helped him to kick-start a career in music,” reads his biography.
After playing with a local band in Kasungu for a while, King Chambiecco decided that it was high time he tested his craft in a recording booth.
In 2006, he recorded his first-ever single Ukapolo.
In 2009, King Chambiecco decided to concentrate on a solo career.
Between 2009 and 2013, he recorded and released a lot of songs that ended up becoming anthems in Kasungu, the central region and a few other districts in Malawi.
Some of the singles he released were Kachere, Lero, Tivina, Anga Alikuti, Password, Pakamodzi, Mkazi Tabwera feat Mafunyeta and NesNes, and Kuli Luso.
