If you are all about good music then you are definitely in for a treat. It’s no secret that making it in the music industry is one heck of a rollercoaster, and most artists quit before they even hit the airwaves. But the few that don’t, usually end up being big stars and celebrated within and outside the borders of Zambia.
UNLOCK is simply the voice of the unheard, talented and passionate upcoming artists in Zambia. We’ll be shining a spotlight on some of the worthy and exceptional upcoming acts around. In this UNLOCK article, we’ll be shining a spotlight on Frazer Xongz.
Frazer Xongz is a Biomedical Science graduate and a heck of an artist (I’m not exaggerating this). Not only does he sing better than a lot of our “big artists” (not mentioning names), his rap verses slap different. With only one official single to his name, this young man’s music career hasn’t even reached its prime but he’s already shaking up the industry and making some individuals nervous for the future of their careers.
With that said, let’s get to know Frazer Xongz a little bit more. His full names are Fraser Liswaniso so Frazer is actually his name. despite people pronouncing it as “Frazer” with a “Z”.
“It’s just me embracing my name and staying true.” – Frazer Xongz
His passion for music made him add the “Xongz” at the end of his stage name which is “Songs.”
Speaking of his passion, Frazer’s love for music began at an early age. His elder brother was into music, so inevitably, he too ventured into music. He started singing at the age of 13.
“I sang because he sang.” – Frazer Xongz
But his inspiration for making music was different from his brother. Frazer says he’s inspired by day to day struggles. He feels music is such a powerful tool that musicians need to take seriously.
Frazer made his official debut with his single “Time“. The song was inspired by what he was going through at the time. He expressed how he felt about his relationship with family and friends using lyrics like “I’ll squeeze in some time, to prove that we’re family” and “My mama told me you’ll be comfortable and livin’ nice but she will never know I’m tryna get it through the booth and mics, she probably meant an education.”
From the looks of things, Frazer’s fans will have to wait a while for an album. But an EP or Mixtape might be more possible, but we’ll leave it up to Frazer Xongz to decide.
That wraps it up for now. Thank you for reading! If you know any artist who’s talented, passionate and unheard that you want us to shine a spotlight on, let me know by sending me a DM on any of my social media channels below.
