Born on the 3rd of April 1994, Esther Chungu first fell in love with music as a child watching and listening to her mother sing in their church choir. The admiration for the art of singing blossomed in her at the very young age of 8. Fast forward a few years later and the artiste Carmine was born.

With a growing fan base and 2 singles under her belt, Esther felt Carmine needed to step away from the limelight for a bit in order to embark on a journey of introspection and self-actualization. And just like the proverbial phoenix, she re-emerged with a few notable changes. She decided to go back to using her birth name as her stage name, citing that she wanted to be remembered by her real names rather than a moniker.

Asides from her renewed Faith, Esther Chungu believes that 2 main ingredients she fuses into her music are Hope and Love. Since re-emerging from her Hiatus, Esther Chungu has kept busy with a number of projects, most notably; hits like ‘Run away child’ and ‘Jehovah’.

Esther Chungu will be in the hot seat with K’Chinga on this week’s episode of ZedTop 10 and it will be interesting to hear her talk about what inspired her name change, as well as her new found passion in her Faith.
