Recently I have received some information from a reader about an amazing Zambian soul artist I should check out. The reader proved right. In todays African music business there is a tendency that only the loudest receive attention although there are many excellent African artists out there who combine soulful and melodious tunes with very meaningful and socially relevant lyrics. Wezi is such a special artist.
Born & Raised in the Zambian town of Ndola Victoria Wezi Mhone realised very early her talent for music. She started writing poems and her own songs when she was only 11 years old and in the primary school she served as the leader of a music group called Scripture Union.
So far she has released the amazing Afro-Soul songs ‘Nipulumuseni‘, ‘Tichitenji‘ and the hit ‘Ambuya‘, which was visualized by Ethan Kaed.
In the T-Sean produced song ‘Ambuya‘ she is praying a beautiful tribute to her Grand mother. While in the chorus she sings about the journey they took as grandmother and granddaughter and the moments they share together at home & on the road.
