BIO: Chipego, born and raised in Zambia, had his first music lessons in 2011. First taught by his father and church mates, he went ahead researching, practicing and now recording and performing. Alongside, he has been in medical school at Capital Medical University since 2017 and does his best to be involved in his community, a tricky balancing act. He believes exceptional results arise when talent, passion and hard work come together for a purpose. A vibrant functional society depends on different people committed to different tasks just like a biological body works. Everyone matters. That is why Chipego would love to spread this message through an inspiring sustainable music career. Music paints moments, moments make life, music is the color of Life.
