BISKUIT MUZIK

Artist of the week: BISKUIT MUZIK

ARTIST OF THE WEEK

It’s one of the youngest rap duos that is already sending shivers to established urban music groups in town. In Blantyre, it’s slowly becoming a household name. For those who’ve ever sampled the duo’s music, they would agree that these lads have lyrically rich punch lines and their deftness in wordplay could and does leave many in awe.

They’re yet to starting hosting shows, but listening to their songs, you wouldn’t need another second look on their poster once they embark on live performances. The lads are the next best thing to have landed on M-Dubz rap podium. So who are the guys behind this noise?

Well, EM’s New Kid on the Block, Lawrence Nachipo, and Gibson C Kamanga have compiled a profile of this prolific rap duo.
