Introducing Kupa: The next best thing in pop and RnB

Every now and then, a new artist comes up. Good music gets to the fans by virtue of being good music. Those that don’t fit the criteria fade off into oblivion.

Kupa is also a student, studying Chemical Engineering.

Then there is Kupa, real name Chiphokwelo Catherine Chimayo, she is a Pop and RNB artist from Lilongwe with and exceptionally huge potential.

Her debut ‘Cinnamon’ has just been released and it is utterly a jam and half.

Her manager, Molowele Gwembere, who also manages Beanca of the famed dance hall hit ‘Tadekha’ spoke about where she draws her music from.

“Kupa uses her music to tell stories and bases her music on her experiences and daily life” said Molowele.

Molowele adds “She has just come onto the scene this year (2017) with her first single ‘Cinnamon’ and the reviews are positive”

“It’s a souful touch on the pop genre, an anthem for every great event” he says.

The song was produced by Eril and Its Friday.

Kupa is a songwriter and versatile singer who speaks for a generation of women who use music as a way to communicate and express themselves.

She is a force to reckon with. Consistency is what keeps great musicians on people playlists and if she does that, which she surely will, she might just be the next best thing to happen to Malawian Pop and RnB.

Kupa is currently working on more music and will be releasing an EP.

Besides music, Kupa is also a student, studying Chemical Engineering.

Sorry folks. Let’s correct some facts. Kupa’s surname is Chiumya and not Chimayo and she would like to study Chemical engineering. She has not gone into University yet.
Have a great one.

I have listened to you single Kupa. Its great and have shared with colleagues here in the USA and they all say, its a great piece. I couldn’t believe, its from Malawi. You are special and have the potential to rise up the ladder of great artists in the world.

Work hard in your studies too. Congratulations are in order.


She is really good. Am impressed. My advice is please be careful with fame should you climb the ladders. Don’t let fame get to your head.
