Zambian born now based in Australia, ingenious rapper CHISENGA formerly known as C.R.I.S.I.S Mr Swagger has finally released his much hyped 25 packed body of work themed “Rhythm and Poetry.” However this is the first major project he has put out after he changed his name.
From the time he was recognised for releasing the first locally produced Hip-Hop album in his birth country Zambia, Officer in Charge was and still stands as one of the most successful Hip-Hop albums from that country. He introduced new acts and garnered local awards for best Hip-Hop artist. He was further introduced to Africa and the rest of the world through MTV Base and Channel-O, the two major African music channels that broadcast across Africa. His song The Fire Inside once took a No. 1 spot across Africa on both MTV Base and Channel-O charts, which earned him a Channel-O Video Music Award for Best Music Video, Southern Africa.
Before recently re-branding to the name CHISENGA, the rapper was known as C.R.I.$.I.$ and then later became Crisis Mr. Swagger. He came up with the aliases at the age of 10. Meanwhile, he asserted himself as a world-class creative, trailblazer.
He released his Mixtape C.R.I.$.I.$ Presents The Diamond Chain and then later got picked up by Clavel Management while living in the UK, where he released the Grammy-recognised album, Designer in 2008.
CHISENGA continues to rise into stardom and not only is he an artist. He is a socially responsible individual when he is not wearing his alter ego as the rapper & has a dream to build his Diamond Chain Media platform as he morphs into an all-encompassing lifestyle brand.
The rapper has been rising to greater heights in recent years. He was quoted saying “It’s always a matter of time and persistence. Any artist that plans to have a lasting career also has to learn to evolve with the time’s and, thank God I’m a sponge and I will continue to adapt so… don’t expect the same thing from CHISENGA.”
