“I started my music in my bedroom and wanted to become a big rapper. My friends laughed at me when I said I wanted to become a millionaire and now they look at me as their inspiration,” he shared his story.

Commenting on his trip to Malawi, the rapper expressed his excitement to be in the country and said “it was a special trip”. The 24-year-old indicated it felt amazing to be in Malawi and speak to his people for the first time.

San B – Mbali (Music Video)

Mbali is San B‘s latest single after a long hiatus from the Pelemende hitmaker. The video features a cameo from Reggae artist, Sweetman. San B is politically outspoken and influenced by Jamaican dancehall musician Buju Banton. It was Buju Banton’s rough gravelly vocals that San B emulated and ultimately made him own.
Having metamorphosed from a brash teenage phenomenon into a self assured singer, San B’s fusion of traditional Malawian music, contemporary R&B and dancehall DJ’ing have earned him a prophet like status.
