WHEN he launched his first album at Mumana Pleasure Resort in Lusaka over a decade ago, there was a huge traffic leading to the entrance of the resort while the place was jam-packed, prompting many revellers to leave without watching the show because of lack of space inside.
It's now another opportunity for him to prove his popularity and show the nation why he is considered the 'Wonder Boy' of Zambian music.
Jordan Katembula, otherwise just known as JK, has just released his seventh album, Pistol , which he has described as better than the first one, which was self-titled and sold more copies than any other album that he released after that.
"That was then and this is now," said JK, comparing the two projects.
"JK 1 was a hit yes but this one (Pistol) is for this generation and people will enjoy this one more than the first one and I am hopeful it will do better than my first project."
Pistol is a 14-track album recorded at Digital X and is being distributed by JK himself starting today.
The title track Pistol is already receiving massive airplay while another smash hit Dangerous, featuring Fally Ipupa, is also gaining ground and promising to follow on the heels of the former.
Jk has described the style on this album as Afro Pop which is meant for both local and international markets.
Tonight is an assessment evening for JK's popularity which had dwindled in the past.
He is expected to launch Pistol at Barclays sports complex in Lusaka at a highly publicised concert.
The MTN sponsored show will also see former Big Brother Africa housemate Hanni from Ethiopia pitching up as guest singer with a number of local stars lined up to support the Pistol singer.
Meanwhile, JK has revealed that he will be going to France later this year to shoot a video for Dangerous with Fally Ipupa.
"I am looking at coming up with a quality video and for that I will be going to France with Fally Ipupa to shoot the video for Pistol ," he said.
