He has been tauted as arguably the hottest producer in the Zambian music scene, Magnus Mando aka Mag44 is not just a producer though, he is also a recording artiste and an entrepreneur.
He is part owner of one of Zambia’s foremost recording studio Radio Café and co-founder of Brave Only Music, Mag44 has produced numerous chart-topping and award-winning records for artists such as Pompi, Abel Chungu Musuka, Tio, Slap Dee, Macky 2, Israel and Kanji. He has worked on music scores for several TV series like Club Risky Business, Love Games and Banja.
Mag44 has painstakingly built his reputation from the ground up and with more than a decade’s worth of work under his belt, it is no wonder he has been nominated for a slew of accolades and awards both locally and internationally; one of his most mention-worthy achievements will be his title as a youth ambassador for the United States Embassy in Zambia.
Mag44 is an all-round creative who literally wears his heart on his sleeve and this is evident in the lyrics to all the records he puts out, as he has a knack for speaking from the heart.
Mag44 will be in the hot seat with K’Chinga on this week’s episode of ZedTop 10 and we are anxious to see and hear this music veteran, whom a lot of his adorning fans have labelled simply “Inspirational”.
