Young Kay

Young Kay

Francis Kaphuka, better known as Young Kay, is an urban artist who has made his name as one of Malawi’s best lyricists. He has twice been voted as Malawi’s best rapper by listeners of Joy FM, solidifying his status on the Malawian hip hop scene.

Young Kay believes that for Malawian music to have an identity the key is to fuse the traditional with contemporary genres: “We can not do songs exactly like our predecessors like Gidesi Chalamanda or Daniel Kachamba used to do, however we can learn from the past and fuse with other elements to come [up] with a Malawi music brand.”

His 2009 debut album First Impressions showcased his ability to mix Chichewa and English. His second album CelebRated dropped mid 2012 and again cemented his name firmly in Malawi’s urban scene.
