“The oppressed use music to express themselves”, this why the music industry of the previously oppressed societies—for example, Black Americans and South African—is a success. On the other hand, music is a multi-billion industry. Now that Zambian music is developing to world-class with Zambians singing internationally and winning medals in global competition, do we see this industry developing into a business that can address household poverty and contribute significantly to economic development. Kambidima speaks to Chisenga Gander Katongo (C.R.I.$.I.$ Mr Swagger) and Fortune Nyondo, to discuss Zambian music and Zambian musicians. What is the secret of their success? What is their focus? What keeps them going? What help do they need and from whom? Born and raised in Zambia, Fortune Nyondo (http://www.fortunesmusic.com/) is a Christian singer, songwriter, composer and arranger. He is also founder of a non-profit organization called Fortune Pilgrim (http://www.fortunepilgrim.org/) that seeks to change the lives of AIDS, Malaria, and Tuberculosis victims in Zambia, and other countries around the world. On his website, Fortune testifies to the awsome healing power of Jesus Christ through his music, and brings it to reality through Fortune Pilgrim. Similarly, born and raised in Lusaka, Chisenga Katongo (http://www.reverbnation.com/hiphopcrisis?eid=3578800_19597450#!/page_object/page_object_bio/artist_64688) a Hip-Hop fan since age 10 is now a world class Hip-Hop artist.
