EVENTS and music promoter Isaac Siwale has praised Kopala-based music duo Chanda Na Kay for its unique talent.
Speaking in an interview, Siwale said he is impressed with the duo’s progression despite the challenges of the Covid-19 pandemic.
He said he wishes the artistes well and advised them to seek proper management to avoid losing the grip to their talent.
He said there is need for more emerging Copperbelt-based artistes to seek proper managers to avoid failed music careers.
Siwale said there is great music talent from the Copperbelt but most artistes from there are lacking good managers.
He argued that of late, there have been many stories of good and upcoming artistes failing to excel because they rushed into management contracts or failed to acquire one.
” As a music artiste manager and promoter, I have observed that most artistes coming outside Lusaka are in a hurry to get known. As such they end up signing bad contracts with some managers here in Lusaka,” said Siwale.
” A good artiste is one with a vision and plan on how they will advance their music career.”
