Zambia: Pompi to Unleash Mizu

SENSATIONAL rapper and singer Pompi is this December set to release his first album under the Lotahouse music label.

Pompi whose real names are Chaka Nyantando will launch the gospel project at the Alliance Francaise on December 8.

Nyantando, 25, turned gospel over a year ago and has been enjoying his newly found life of music with hits such as Make Up, Chipolopolo, Giant Killer and Packaging have topped charts and competed with the secular music.

Currently, Pompi's Packaging is the only gospel song that is on the Local Rhythms Countdown on Radio Phoenix while his songs are enjoying massive airplay on both radio and clubs.

On December 8 at Alliance Francaise, Pompi with Lotahouse crew of Chungu, Mag44 and Tio, is expected to launch his 13 track album dubbed Mizu which mean roots in Chewa.

The album will have songs such as Refugee, Mulungu Sama Gona, Hygiene and Tuleshana.

Talking about his music, Pompi told Times entertainment that his music has no specific genre as he shows different character on the Mizu album.

"My Music has no specific genre and I think gospel music is mostly about the message than the beat, which is why I am showing all my music abilities on this album" he said.

Pompi stormed the scene in the secular music circles with hits such Mr Dj featuring Slap D though he never released any album back then.

After going holy, the rapper and singer has finally managed to come up with an album under the Lotahouse Music label.

Pompi is now a born again Christian who congregates at Mount Zion church in Kabulonga.
