LUSAKA, ZAMBIA – The sky’s the limit for five of Zambia’s hottest musical stars as Proflight Zambia unveiled the new line-up for its Fly5 supergroup of brand ambassadors today (Friday).
The Proflight Fly5 members are Chef 187, Cleo Ice Queen Kanji, Kiki and James Sakala, who will be travelling with the airline and exploring Zambia in the coming year to give fans a taste of the music, food and culture on offer across the country.
While musicians and performers in their own right, the five will join forces under the Fly5 banner to record songs and music videos that capture the excitement of Zambia’s traditional ceremonies, some of its best-known tourist attractions, adventure and exciting urban sights and sounds.
“Proflight Zambia links people of all ages and backgrounds across the country, and music connects them all too,” said Proflight Marketing Manager, Hellen N. Mwamba. “Fly5 reloaded aims to reach out to existing and future passengers, bringing them together to share the excitement, affordability and convenience of flying with us to some of the most amazing destinations in the country.”
The new Fly5 team follows in the footsteps of the illustrious original Proflight Fly5 group, which was formed in 2013 and comprised of JK, Slap Dee, Pompi, and Cactus Agony along with model Petita Mwanza.
The new group aims to appeal to a wider group of fans.
Chef187, whose real name is Kondwani Kaira, is considered to be one of the most influential artists of the moment. He has been active in the music industry since 2010, and shot to stardom with his much-praised first album.
Rap artist, reality TV star, aspiring actress and model Cleo Ice Queen was a South African Hip Hop awards nominee in 2012 and Big Brother Africa (The Chase) second place housemate in 2013.
Kanji has been on the Zambian music scene since 2014. She had highly successful songs including ‘chi daddy’ early on in her career before putting her music career on hold to focus on being a lawyer. She made a comeback to the music scene with an album titled ‘Zanga’ in 2014.
Kiki is one half of the duo Ben and Kiki, which covers popular songs. Last year she was one of the opening acts for JK’s Telemundo album launch and performed at Zambia’s first International Jazz Festival, the Stanbic Misty Jazz Festival.
James Sakala is a singer and musician who fuses Afro-Jazz with Kalindula, to create faith-driven music with a traditional flavour.
