Reggae star Maiko Zulu is new ZAM chairman

REGGAE artiste Maiko Zulu, formerly St. Michael, has been elected Zambia Association of Musicians (ZAM) chairman with gospel singer-cum-pastor Boyd Ngosa as deputy.

During the ZAM extraordinary conference on Tuesday at Lusaka's Fairview Hotel, Callen Chisha popularly known as 2wice was voted secretary general with Petersen of the Bobojani fame as deputy.

Chisenga Katongo popularly known as C.R.I.$.I.$. was elected publicity secretary after overcoming competition from Njoya T.

Chembe Mkonsha a.k.a MC Wabwino was voted treasurer general while Moses Sakala of the Sakala Brothers is the projects secretary.

The position of research and documentation secretary went to Mainza Ndiili otherwise known as Jonto, with Towera Nyirongo, Davies Ngoma a.k.a Nasty D and Ian Nyirenda ushered in as committee members.

The new disciplinary committee comprises Levy Sakala, Ras Willie, Dambisa, Brian Chilala and Mweembe Munthu.

Outgoing chairperson Maureen Lilanda pledged financial support to ZAM. Maureen urged ZAM members to refrain from finger-pointing.

Maiko said it was time to reorganise the association. "Don't be surprised if we come to you for advice. This is an executive that has come with fire, probably holy fire, to wipe out the negativity that has engulfed the music industry.

"We are still a limping child as far as Zambian music is concerned so the media needs to have a soft spot for this organisation because we are just starting," he said.

Maiko urged ZAM members to encourage more artistes to join the association.

"National Arts Council (NAC) has the mandate of taking care of ZAM starting at a point where we have no resources…and of course you as our members need to start encouraging more artistes to become members.

"We don't have a union as artistes but ZAM can take up the challenge and all the suggestions will be welcome," he said.

Maiko reiterated the need for ZAM to strengthen itself in other provinces.
