Girls Watch Out:

 Never ALLOW your boyfriend today to pick a shot of your nakeness! When he become your EX tomorrow; he may upload it on facebook to disgrace you. If you have nude pictures of yourself on your phone on laptop, protect it or delete it. If he uses his phone or any other device to capture your nakeness unawares, remove the memory card and smash it until is completely destroyed because deleted items for flash drives are easily recoverable! A word to the Wise Girl

The secret behind bonding

Standard
The secret behind bonding

 

Bonding means connecting, not only feeling for the other person, but being attached to one another. every person needs bonding to flourish and grow, between mother and child, between husband and wife, between brothers and sisters, and between close friends. bonding is an affirmation, it gives one a sense of belonging, the feeling that “i matter”. it establishes trust, trust in oneself and trust in others. It instills confidence. Without bonding and nurturing we cannot realise and be ourselves.

Bonding is giving all of yourself, not just part, it is one emotion but all of them. Only then can bonding be constructive and everlasting.

An essential component of bonding is endurance, its ability to withstand challenges and setbacks. without endurance there is no chance to develop true bonding.

Bonding is eternal. it develops an everlasting union that lives forever through the perpetual fruit it bears.

He further added that since ZNS Green Eagles football club of Choma has escaped relegation to remain in the MTN FAZ Premier league, it  has given them courage to finish the stadium on time so that it can be ready for used next season.

Meet: DJ H-Man

Standard
Meet: DJ H-Man

When meeting Harold a.k.a DJ H-Man for the first time one can notice that he is not only a handsome,
charismatic young man but also smart, talented and well mannered. EZM managed to get a quick
interview with this talented young DJ/producer

 

Harold: I have been doing music for a good 10 years. I started in school singing in an accapela group.
That was my first step on the music journey that I continue to take.

After school (2001-2002) I visited a music studio, Sling Beats. It was my first time being in a recording
studio. This inspired me to compose my own songs and eventually recorded my first song there.

Shortly after that I went to Russia and it was there that I taught myself how to play a guitar, use
computer software for producing and recording music, I also continued to horn my song writing skills.
During my first year I had set up my first make-shift studio, where people paid to record their music. This
connected me to the local Russian scene, eventually I had music collaborations with local acts which led
to invitations from local clubs. Other than that I actively took part in various functions organized by the
University.

I did a collaboration with several artists titled The Voice of Liberation (a song against Racism), which
brought me a lot of local attention. The song made a big buzz and we got invited to play at clubs. A well
known local MC took note of me and introduced to some club managers, who in turn hired me as an
MC/Singer at a local club K2. Few months later I moved to another job at another club which was purely
a club for hip-hop music. Working at the new club, I proved myself resourceful, so I was also hired to DJ.
At first I would play the closing set (before club closes), this gave me an opportunity to learn how to use
the Disc-jockeying equipment. As I got better I began to play during the club’s prime time.

From here I decided to combine being a DJ, singer and producer. I added DJ to the name H-Man.

 

EZM: Where in Lusaka have you played as a DJ?

Harold: I played at Room-101 for a while, but mostly I have been DJ’ing at Events (alongside names such
as Rico Ricardo, Kaliwa(Hot fm), LBC(Qfm), MixMaster(Hone fm) and others)

 

 

EZM: What differentiates you from other local DJs?

Harold: Some of the stuff I play is customized (I make my version of a track), am fun (if people aren’t
having fun even am not having fun), I can adapt to the crowd and situation (adaptability being a very

 

 

Harold: Afro-pop, HipHop/RnB, South African House, European House. I’m a people’s DJ and I keep
music as versatile as I can.As a producer I go through phases but as a DJ I must be able to read the crowd.

 

Hobbies: swimming, playing guitar, Socializing, philosophizing, taking walks

Favorite food: Nshima with ifisashi and trotters, chicken and chips, chikanda, cheese

Plans for the near future: Complete University degree in law, Release 2nd solo albums, travel to Holland

EXCLUSIVE: Petita Mwanza on Swahili Fashion Week

A few weeks ago that the beautiful and first winner of Zambia’s Supermodel, Petita Mwanza announced publicly that she would no longer do national catwalks unless it was for charity,guess the model had been planning the exit for a while. She recently made her signature walk for the first time ever on the Swahili Fashion week and she looked amazing and also represented Zambia well. EZM Magazine caught up with an exclusive interview about the SFW.

EZM: What did u love and learn about the SFW?

Petita: Firstly I had an amazing time in Tanzania,the level of professionalism and organisation is up to par,the East africans have exiled because of the massive support they get from locals and government at  large which we lack as a country.

EZM: What was the hardest thing ?

Petita: The hardest part was the quick changes and not screwing up on stage, otherwise I enjoyed every moment I spent on the runway!I felt special.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

EZM: The happiest moments?

Petita: I was blown away by the talent coming from Africa. I Enjoyed every minute on the runway and meeting new people from other African countries and finally havin to work with Jan Malan.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

EZM: Which designer did you  love?

Petita:.Everyone  of the 50 designers had a unique touch to there work, I am particularly proud of the two Zambian designers, Charity Nyirongo and Towani Clark. Beautiful stuff. I am so honoured to have finally worked with Jan Malan and his team.

Name: Chali Laswel aka Dj Chali from Hone Fm.

D.O.B: 8th May 19-8something.

Schools attended: Lotus,Licef and Kabulonga Boys.

EZM : Tell us about your history and background

 DJ Chali: Straight after completing High School I started workng at a take away, I later on quit because I didn’t enjoy the job. In 2007, I joined the K-Smash academy at Hot fm,from then I started presenting Zed 6to6 part 3 with Dj Angel,for a couple of months. The academy was later dissolved when K-Smash left Hot Fm after a few differences. I later on went to join Hone Fm fan club, for about a year I never had an opportunity to be behind the mic. But, I kept constant contact with K-Smash, he told me that their was a new station opening (Joy Fm) I went there and I was given a first shift on test transmission. Guess what? The moment I sat on the deck, there was a power cut imagine? I told myself this is not were God wants me to be.

 I walked the Hone Fm corridors for 2 years without a shift. Somebody noticed me and invited me on their shift, thanx Master L.T I presented the Zed Xperience wit him for a year and I then finally got my own shift which came out second most listened to show in just 3 months. And increased the ratings of the station to 3rd ranked in Zambia, on lyricsafrica.com that was towards the end of 2009. In december 2010, I was appointd head Dj for Hone Fm, of which am still serving upto now.
