All Around Africa: Taelo [Malawi]


By Mpho Musowa

This week we introduce the continent and world at large to a new voice in RnB.

Her first single Zonse was premiered on celebrity Dj Joy Nathus’ Made On Mondays. The song features UMP award winner Martse. Produced by Ak on the Board and Chance. For two years the good fellas at Hype entertainment/Freshmans have been working with her.

We caught up with the artist to give you inside access.

“Iam Taelo Zimba, aged 20. HRM participant at Staff Development Institute (SDI). Iam a christian, last in a family of 5”

“I have always looked up to Grace Soko who I enjoyed singing along to her music when I was young she has always been a big influence in my life..Rudo Chakwela as well..musicians like beyonce,Rihanna,Yemi Alade ,Tiwa savage just to mention a few have been a big inspiration to me…it’s like music is food to my soul”

“I have been singing since 6 years. I was in my church choir at home and school…music has always been in my blood”

“So basically now am signed under Hype entertainment / Freshmans”
