NOT for the first time, award-winning singer and songwriter Roberto has hit the right note with his song Amarulah getting over 50, 000 downloads, a true testament to itspopularity.On his part, Roberto has been paying tribute in several tweets to the artistes who have featured on his album such as Cleo Ice Queen, Slap D, Zone Fam, General Ozzy and Chef 187 among others.Zone Fam and Slap D have featured on the remix of Amarulah, which despite some fans saying it is not as good as the original, has still proven popular.   

“I could not wait to work with these guys. True story is Jay Rox met with me at Manda Hill and threatened that he might hack my social media accounts if he did not get to hear a remix, then met Yung Verbal who demanded for new hair spray. I feared for my life and that’s show Zone Fam jumped on the remix lol. Just Joking,” he tweeted.“True story is I always wanted a song with Zone Fam because to be honest, this is the Best Group in Zambia. I could not resist having my brothers on the song, and I think this is the first of many songs to come.


“Slap D knocked the hinges on this [Amarulah] remix in international style. This means Slap D and Ozzy are the only artistes to feature on three of my albums. Loads of respect for this brother of mine. We had planned on a song to do together and finally the remix. Big ups Mwila Musonda for hoping onto the #1712_amarulah Album! My Brother to the bone.”

Roberto has also reserved some praise for Chef 187, Cleo Ice Queen and Reekado Banks.
“Nifuna Uzibe on the #Roberto_1712_Amarulah features Chef 187, Kopala’s finest product. This guy has skills that can’t be measured. Salutes to Chef, This song was recorded the day Pilato was launching his album at Club Zed. Recorded at BrathaHood Studio, brother murdered the track, Hands down Chef 187,” he tweets.
He says Cleo, who features on the song Fall with Ghanaian artiste Stonebwoy “murdered” the track and “loves her skills.”

“Paired with Katongo’s sultry vocals, you have a match made in heaven, and, simply, music to your ears,” her publicist said in a statement.“Listeners are drawn in by the up-tempo afro-drums and the catchy chorus finds you involuntarily moving to the rhythm. A song definitely to match the greatest Afropop songs ever released, and one fans will not get enough of.” Katongo, who has been writing songs since the age of 11, can be described as an Afropop singer as evidenced by her self-released debut EP ‘My Way’ which is packed with dance influenced tracks laced with African drums and Caribbean rhythms that instantly grab ones attention and showcases her ability to deliver meaningful lyrics with strong, yet soothing vocals.

But away from her music, Katongo, who is also an international model, does charity work and has been aligned with the charity ‘Africans United Against Child Abuse’ (AFRUCA). Recognised as a supporter of the charity, Katongo, alongside other speakers, has spoken at the House of Commons on two occasions. She is also the co-founder of Pamoja Women’s Foundation with her sister Kanta Temba.   Wink

Dalisoul "Mwana wa mu Komboni"

Dalisoul or "Mwana wa mu Komboni" as he is fondly called by his fans was born Madaliso Phiri.Growing  up in Mtendere compound,Dalisoul was interested in music from a young age, first performing in his church choir. He took part at  various talent search competitions where his  performances gained him wide recognition.Dalisoul made his debut as a single artist in 2001 with the song “Kuninena” and has since worked with many top Zambian musicians such as JK, Petersen, Danny, B1,Afunika,Petersen and Mampi. He made the first ever video-cd in Zambia and his first album, entitled “Shansha,” is still jumping off the shelves.He followed this hits like "Chipyango", "Vomela", "Munsunge Munshe" and "Menso Yalibe Maketani" which features B1 .

Dalisoul's music is about reality – it talks about the hardships of living in townships and the trials people face in life. He hopes to strengthen people by encouraging them to utilize whatever resources they have and make the best of every situation. He considers himself to be an advocate of the people, speaking on their behalf with music. He hopes to bring about change by highlighting social issues affecting youth in Zambia.

In December ’09, he released a hit single featuring Petersen, entitled “Condoms” which has been dominating the airwaves and clubs. He says he wrote this song to break the taboo about condoms; he wants to encourage people to be safe and protect themselves. While behavior change is difficult, he hopes that some will take the message to heart.Dalisouls' music has crossed borders and is widely listened to in Malawi,Zimbabwe and other countries in the Southern African region.His collaboration with Malawian artists Skeffa Chimoto and Armstrong resulted in radio hits "Musiye Ayende" and "One Day".

After a brief lull in his musical career,Dalisoul has came back with great tunes such as Ndichiritseni which features Indy K and the latest dance floor banger  “Chikanda Mbwelenge“ which features Willz, Mr. Nyopole. Backed by the energetic Jerabo Dancers,Mwana wa mu Komboni's strong stage presence incorporating elements of dance and theatre, still continues to captivatate the Zambia audience.
