Tim wows audience at debut solo album launch in Lusaka, Pompi, others grace event


Celebrated rapper, Tim, pulled off an emotional act at an event meant to mark his debut solo album as a gospel artiste titled, ‘Sonder’ in his home city, Lusaka on Saturday night.

The rapper, whose real name is Timbwama Chisenga, wowed the crowd with captivating spiritual lyrics in a highly entertaining set that lasted over 2 hours albeit in four different sessions with short intervals in between.

The performance of ‘Little Me, Big God’ featuring longtime collaborator Sam Sakala formerly known as Dope G, was a ‘stage presence masterclass’ reminiscent of the critically acclaimed rap group Zone Fam where both rappers made their names earlier in their careers.

Among the highlights of the show was when the African Eagle, Pompi joined him on stage for their collaboration, ‘Here I Am’, a song Tim admitted was “very difficult for me to write” due to the fragility it portrayed because of the heavy honesty behind the theme of the track.

“That was a very hard song from me to write, a hard song and a hard song for me to perform.

“I really wasn’t looking forward to performing it cause of the season I’m in and i was afraid of what it would bring out. Jesus love you, and Jesus loves me,” the rapper stated to the audience shortly after the performance.

The ministration with Pompi then transitioned into a performance of the two artistes 2017 classic duet, ‘Heart Beat’ much to the delight of the masses who sang along to the verses and the infectious chorus.

How ironic that the event was held within a 400-meter vicinity of a penthouse where the music video of the song was shot seven years ago.

Highly talented singers, Abel Chungu, and Esther Chungu, equally hopped on stage with TIM at different intervals to perform ‘Nsungeni’ and ‘Power’ respectively, to add to the stage act which was a special experience for Tim.

The rapper who directed people to Christ on his set by leading the audience through a repentance prayer admitted that the show was an emotionally overwhelming experience.

He stated that in his 15 year journey as a musician, it was the first time his mother watched him perform live at an event.

The stage act was properly curated with artiste Kelly Zulu painting a magnificent portrait of Tim, a feat that happened in just under 15 minutes during the performance.

‘Sonder” which is out on all major streaming platforms was officially released in November last year.
