Speaking to Nyasa Times, Pesty C said he has 30 songs including the recently released hit single “Hustle” produced by Dare Devilz.

“I have so many songs. I am going to drop an EP but not now. We want to focus on pushing the new Hustle  single,” he said.

“Hustle” was premiered a few weeks ago on MBC Radio 2’s Made on Monday with Joy Nathu.

Other songs are “Tizalowa Tonse” and “Ex UsandiBhowe” featuring Tay Grin.

Besides Tay-Grin, Pesty C has also collaborated with Piksy, DJ Nathan Tunes, Leo-B, Grinade, K-wizz and Jay-Done.

He has worked with producers such as Dare Devilz, Ace, Gusto, Runbwoy, Steve Spesho and Daff.

Real name Peace Dickson, Pesty C  comes from Manase in Blantyre.

“I gave myself Pesty C because I am a big Nasty C fan. I love listening to Nasty C,” he admitted.

Born on 23 December, 2006, Pesty C started music in 2013.

Pesty C is currently studying at Manyowe Primary School in Standard 7.

Quizzed if music doesn’t interfere with school, he said, “I manage my time. I know when to study and I do music in my leisure time.”

Pesty C was quick to urge fellow kids to work hard and focus on their goals.

The young lad better focus on his academics while pursuing music as a hobby. The current state of music/entertainment industry in malawi is too shaky for one to consider it a full time and life long career. We have big name in the industry like Tay Grin, Martse, Janta, et al and they barely have albums or single listed on Spotify, Youtube, Apple Music. Music is not a full time job in Malawi.

I thought about that as well. If I say there is no money in Malawi music industry, people will be after me. Fact is ONLY a few have made it. How many artists we see on here crying for help to go the hospital? Why?

Son, you need to concentrate on your education. Std 7 and you say you manage your time. You need a back up plan.
