Crisis Mr. Swagger is more than just your typical Perth City man. He is a Pro-Pre-Established, Multi-Award winning Hip-Hop artist, re-introducing himself to a new audience since settling in Australia 14 months ago.
Born, Chisenga G. Katongo in Lusaka, Zambia, he was the first artist to release a Hip-Hop album in his birth country, Zambia in January 2005.
Currently working on a new album and constantly performing in Perth, he is looking to get onto major stages such as The Perth Arena and expanding further out, on a mission to represent a new phase in Australian Hip-Hop. His Afro-English/American accent has helped him stand out as an artist.
In 2010, he was one of four African artists hired by MTV Base to perform at a World Cup event in Johannesburg, South Africa.
He has performed in Atlanta, Hollywood, London, Zimbabwe, Malawi etc., released four albums and shared the stage with names including; Akon, Sean Paul, E-40 and many others. The biggest audience he has performed for is a roaring crowd of 48,000 people, at the Harare Sports Stadium.
From the artist, “The first song that I am promoting is an original song called ‘Translation’ that samples the man that was known as the African Jimi Hendrix. His name was Paul Ngozi. This song was created off the strength of my African roots and helps create what most people have described as a stand out track.” This song is definitely worth a listen!
