Caleb Kawamba, Head of Marketing & Sales at Shamboko Beverages, says: “We have invested in promoting entertainment events before such as social weekends in schools like Bunda College and NRC as well as the launch of Gwamba’s first album and have noticed that Hip-Hop/Rap music has a big influence on young people, especially urban youths.
“We have decided to make this our first initiative on the basis that we will be promoting the talent as well as providing entertainment. At the end of Season 1 we will produce the Cypher featuring the best MC’s (rappers) in Season 1 and that’s six artists.”
Shamboko Beverages, which also produces the popular local cream liquor called “Ngwazi” as well as bottled and sachet water called “Nyanja ndi Yathu”, have big plans to invest in the local entertainment industry as they are also looking at the dance and fashion industries with great interest.
