Zambia’s singing sensation Robert Banda aka Roberto is serious in taking his music beyond Zambian borders.
The artiste whose video of the song ‘ Beautiful’ recently hit number 1 on Trace Music Africa is currently on tour to various nations where his music has great influence. He started with Kenya last week, featuring on radio stations talking his music and rise to the top. Roberto whose current album is dubbed Superstar also had performances in Kenya and is now focused to move to another country.
The main reason he is doing so is to give his fans across Africa an opportunity to watch him in live music gigs. Amongst the countries he has lined up is surprisingly Congo DR.
Congo DR is highly dominated by a lot of musicians promoting Rhumba music. This is therefore Roberto’s biggest move as he has to prove his popularity in a country that has produced a number of music greats.
He is very happy that he has followers in Congo and his planned tour to that country later gives him enough confidence to even do better. Locally, Roberto is being considered one of the county’s most consistent and popular artiste.
