“Working with Rihanna was a defining moment. At the time, I was a telephone operator at an executive medical call centre. One of the patients, an audio manager at Twofour54, noticed my voice and gave me his business card. A year later, he called again, and we met at the studio,” Miyanda recounted.

“I recorded several projects with him, including monster truck promos, but during the third project at his home studio, I found my true voice.

“He encouraged me to relax and be myself, and when I did, he recorded my natural voice for the Rihanna promo. The promo was approved and led to more opportunities, including promos for Bon Jovi and Dave Matthews Band concerts in Abu Dhabi,” Miyanda added.

He also worked on promotional projects for the Batman franchise, was eager to contribute to the local film industry.

He believed that quality voice-over artistry can significantly enhance the competitiveness of local productions on the international stage.

“Voice-overs can elevate the production quality of local films, making them more competitive internationally.
They can also enhance promotional materials, helping to market Zambian films to a broader audience.Training and workshops led by experienced voice-over artists can nurture local talent, raising the overall standard of the industry,” Miyanda said.
