|MAPICK – Born Alan Mapick is a multi-talented secular musician from Mazabuka behind the smashing Tonga hit song Omubili Wandilekelela (my body you have abandoned me). Mapick writes and produces most of his songs although he has recorded a few songs with Lusaka-based producer Jerry Fingers.|
In his song (Omubili), he talks about how his body has failed him, aging fast when he still wanted to have fun and enjoy his youth.
Mapick was introduced to the Zambian music scene with his hit gospel song Jobo walila although it was his hit song Sosendeko produced by Jerry Fingers that sang wondered him to national recognition.
His sensational hit song Omubili which was produced at Mapick Records Entertainment features his young brother Joe Mapick, who is a DJ at Byta FM in Choma. It is a family of musicians as his other young brother Lastiz is the man behind the rhythm in the song.
“I am very much inspired by Rhumba musicians and I really never thought Omublili would hit the national wide music charts as it has done. I write and produce my songs though I have also recorded a couple of tracks with Lusaka-based producer Jerry Fingers. Omubili features my younger brother Joe and we co-produced the song with my other younger brother Lastiz,” he disclosed.
Mapick has also featured on his songs Lusaka-based ragga musician Yellow man, Albert Sadiz, and since collaborated with Southern province legends Mpande and Real Jay.
People often find it hard to quantify Mapick’s music because his has done songs in English, Nyanja, although most of his songs were done in Tonga.
The 28-year-old musician notes that his music is suitable for all ears and that it was mostly inspirational and unifying.
His journey has been catastrophic as he cited piracy as the number one thorn in every musician’s flesh.
