Zambian artist takes hip hop to Ukraine

By Terence Miselo

A Zambian artiste based in Ukraine has released his first video dubbed ‘Wala’ in his quest to internationally promote Zambian hip hop.

Musically known as Carbinificent, Bienvenue Byringiro is currently in Ukraine for studies but has used the opportunity to promote Zed hip hop.

“I am currently studying in Ukraine but I have been doing this music thing for a while now. Basically, I have been into hip-hop for more than 7 years now; I found motivation when I left Zambia for my studies.  I saw a huge opportunity to push Zed hip hop and my music forward,” he said in an interview to explain his new release whose video premiered on September 11.

Carbinificent says he is representing Zambia very well in terms of music by incorporating our culture and language into his songs.

“I finally released my first music video to my latest single, ‘Wala’. My music always has something to do with Zambia. I represent the city of Lusaka in all my music, bringing in the culture and language we use in our everyday lives,” he adds.

He is currently working on his debut album and urges his followers and fans to lookout for his works on leading music social networks with the key word@carbnificent
