Lungo Katete Interview - ZASA Magazine

Lungo describes herself as an artist in all senses. Literally everything she does has an artistic element. She says she always likes to stay true to her artistic, expressive self even in the way she dresses and other things she does. This is the reason she decided to do architecture, because it was a way in which she could express who she was through design and creation. She also does pageants which she says helps her show people who she is artistically, and as a person. Pageants fit in with her bubbly, outgoing, creative and fabulous self! {Yasss huney!} She will be pursuing her honours degree in 2020 and thereafter her masters degree….and she thinks that’s it study wise!

Kalusha Bwalya Interview - ZASA Magazine

It was 25 years ago, I remember as a 10-year-old feeling this gripping depressed mood sweeping through the nation as news confirmation of the plane going down trickled in. My parents, uncles and aunts were glued to the TV and the more visuals came in, the more we saw the adults go from depression to anger and confusion to despair. The hopes of the nation had been dashed in one cruel turn of fate as a team that was destined for greatness was wiped out.

This would have been the end of the road for many but Zambia refused to be that. A team arose from the ashes to push to the final the following year only to be halted by Nigeria. 18 years later the Zambian national team was lifting the cup that was ripped from our hands 7kms from the site of the deadly crash. This new team had, a day earlier, been taken to the crash site to pay respects by a man who with a few defiant men and women had decided Zambian football would not fade into obscurity. With the 2018 World Cup just days away, it is fitting that we got to talk to a man that has become celebrated for his contributions to football in Zambia and the rest of the world.

Kalusha Bwalya began by telling me about the root of his passion and the things that have helped propel him to the pinnacle of Zambian Soccer.

Katongo Temba Interview - ZASA Magazine

We first came across her early 2017 and fell in love with her music right away. We went on to publish her bio in the Zed Artist Profiles column of the April 2017 edition and have followed her career since. She was based in the UK at the time and you could tell her influences were more western than they were rooted in Africa but her progression has seen her embrace Mother Zambia which shows in her more recent projects.

She has gone on to produce music with the likes of Slap Dee and is currently in Zambia working on her next album as well as doing some charity work around children and female empowerment. We thought it was about time we sat her down and talked about her journey as well as find out what her plans are, especially with a new album in the works this year.

Kaleo Sansaa Interview - ZASA Magazine

It’s a different sound. It was the first time I had ever heard anything like it, some sounds do come close to it but there’s no denying it’s unique. A mixture of jazz, hip hop, RnB and soul held together with poetry that seemed more like meditation – but - you’ll have to listen for yourself because I don’t even think I’m doing this description justice. This prompted me to click through to her website and pages. I was intrigued and at first, didn’t even know she was Zambian until I heard Bemba in one of her songs. What made it even more interesting was that she’s based in Germany.

I played her music for a friend and got the same reaction – intrigue (with a whole lot of questions). That’s when I knew we had to hear her story and bring her to you. We reached out and about a month or so later she announced tour dates for South Africa and Zambia – our chance had manifested.

We met in a rustic coffee shop in the arty section of Johannesburg, Maboneng Precinct. She had just come off the Cape Town leg of her tour and was kicking off the Johannesburg leg the same day. She will be performing in Lusaka in the 4th week of July before heading off to her home village, Senga Hills near Kasama for a much-needed break.

Rob Simbowe Interview - ZASA Magazine

We interviewed Rob a few months ago, that was just before he got into the ring and knocked his opponent out in less than a minute. This time around was a bit different. He was brought to submission through a choke hold. His story is one that everyone can draw parallels to life from. Things don’t always go your way and life will bring you to submission – the question is; are you ready to jump back into the ring?

This match was actually the main card fight as opposed to the preliminary matches he was in before – main card matches go live on TV.

We sat down with him again for a chat before this second fight and got a bit deeper than we did in our last interview.

Mwangala Ikacana Interview - Part 2 of 2

[CONTINUED] We had been trying for some time to get her to talk to us but had been unable to due to some complications between Miss Zambia Pageant’s management company (Platinum Events Productions Africa) and the previous title holder Louisa Chingangu. The crown was contested in December 2016 and Mwangala got promoted from first princess to title holder in May this year after Louisa was dethroned due to a controversy that went viral on social media and made headlines in Zambian mainstream media publications.

We finally got a chance to chat to her when she came to South Africa to contest the Miss Africa Continent Pageant 2017. We found her deep in rehearsals and managed to get her away for an hour – the competition was taking place in 4 days.
