B1 Bruce SimbwalangaBy CHIPEMA SAKAIMBO –

BRUCE Simbwalanga, better known as B1, is one of the Zambian artistes that is making Zambia really proud in other countries through his accomplishments in his music career.
Just early this year his enormous rhythm mesmerised Atlanta where he had a couple of shows.
And now he is at it again in England where he charmed a multitude that flocked to his recently held function.
For Zambia’s most controversial artiste of the Chipute fame touring England was really a success for him because he received massive support.
The artiste says his music and performance made the people of England dance with him all night at the Hilton hotel.
He sang songs starting from his first album Chipute to his most recent track Village girl and was glad that the audience sang along all the way.
B1 described the event as a ‘bomb’ which made him happy because he was able to realise how much people in the Diaspora long for zed music.
“The gig was a cancer charity programme and the proceeds were sent back to Zambia,” the celebrated artiste said.
He disclosed that his music has already penetrated the international market but without Zambians realising it.
“As Zambian artistes we really need exposure because Zed music is bigger in other countries but most of us are not aware until we visit these countries.
“Zambia is not just recognised as a peaceful country in England but a nation with massive talent as well so we should work even harder to be appreciated even more,” explains B1.
He urges his fellow artistes to keep on improving Zambian music and further consider improving their marketing skills as well.
Further, the artiste who is studying in the United Kingdom begs musicians to consider upgrading their studies and not just rely on music.
