“I Make More Money Outside Zambia” – King Illest

Zambian rapper King Illest made some candid revelations during a recent radio interview with DJ Pressure-T aka PMC. The rapper shared that he earns more money performing outside Zambia than in his home country, despite his immense popularity there.

King Illest’s admission highlights the paradoxical nature of the music industry in Zambia, where international exposure often translates into greater financial rewards. This trend is not unique to Zambia and is observed in many other developing countries.

The rapper also opened up about a bad experience he had at the Kwacha Awards, a prestigious event in the Zambian music industry. King Illest recounted a poor stage performance, which was further marred by the unfortunate robbery of items from his car on the same night.

This incident undoubtedly left a sour taste in the rapper’s mouth, serving as a stark reminder of the challenges that artists face even in the midst of their success.

Addressing his status as the most dissed rapper in Zambia, King Illest admitted to refraining from responding to the majority of diss tracks directed at him. He explained that many of the artists taking shots at him lack both the financial and intellectual prowess that he possesses.

Despite the obstacles he has faced, King Illest remains determined to leave a lasting mark on Zambian music. His unwavering dedication to his craft and his refusal to be swayed by negativity are sure to propel him to even greater heights in the years to come.
