Muzo aka Alphonso’s manager, Mubanga bornfire Mulilo says Yo Maps has the support and money, all he needs is to get international.
Musician Yo Maps is undoubtedly among, if not the most current happening Zambian artiste. He has worked hard over a short period to command a huge fanbase. His music continues to mesmerise a lot of us and it is clear, Yo Maps is immensely talented. However, I feel by this time, Yo Maps could have gone international. He seems to be too confined to the Zambian audience and probably making no major efforts to get his music beyond borders.
to the Zambian audience and probably making no major efforts to get his music beyond borders.
I feel that being under Kalandanya Music Promotions must even give him more opportunities to think international. If I am not mistaken, Yo Maps became very famous at almost the same time as Malawi’s Namandingo. But if I compare the two today, Namandingo seems to be more internationally appealing than Yo Maps.
I feel Yo Maps is our greatest chance to get international. His music label must begin branding and packaging him for the international platform. Get him collaborations that will engage international audiences. Music videos that will attract the international market. It is not too late for Yo Maps to start thinking international. He’s got the talent, he’s got the support and he’s got the money, all he needs is to get international.
