Chipata musician BoyTizo has lamented that artists who are based out of the big 5 main central business towns in Zambia are considered to be untalented.
BoyTizo whose names are Kepton Kumwenda based in the Eastern Province town of Chipata formerly known as Fort Jameson said that the media and Zambians in general should try asses or pay attention to talent outside Lusaka, Kitwe, Ndola, Kabwe and Livingstone as God has blessed the human race differently.

“You see if Zambians want come up with legendary individuals like the ones we admire South African musician Lucky Dube and Brenda Fassie, they should not look down at young artist regardless of where they come from even from remote areas of country,” explained BoyTizo.
BoyTizo was flanked by fellow artist Sil-vee and Rapkaindah all based in Chipata.
Female artist Sil-vee also chipped in to advice that Zambians should observe South African Idols auditions were aspiring artist come from every town and they are accepted.
And Rapper Rapkaindah whose real names are Daniel Katele said that since time immemorial most people think artist are wild and crazy people who cannot contribute positively to the society.
He appealed to the parents of Zambia and the media to support their children who have talent for singing, HD Fame added that just like politicians and other careers artist help also to address many issues in the society and it pays off socially and economically.
