WHAT ISNPIRED YOU TO BECOME A WRITER?

His response was?

 “I started writing not because I wanted fame and the lights, but because there was a greater need of change that this world desired to see and witness through inspired writings. There’s so much greatness that has been inbred within the hearts and souls of every youth out there, but the problem is that the majority we choose to focus on the lowly aspect of things and not work hard to highly seeing to it that a change is brought to a society that is gradually falling out of place. God is my drive and my focus, to achieve my passion of seeing a better society, I have chosen to incline my energy to the God who provides the possibility

WHAT CHALLENGES HAVE YOU ENCOUNTERED IN YOUR WRITING JOURNEY?

His response was? 

When I just started my writing and establishing my ground as an Author I received a lot of opposition and criticism, such as, “Stop wasting your time, writing will do you no good in Zambia” “What makes you think people will spend their money to just buy your book? or even read your writing” “Find something else to do, writing books to help the nation grow is out of order, people don’t pay attention to positive things” “Blessings is a pretender, that young man is cheeky” “That young man is born again? Just wait for him he’ll be back to the world soon” and the list continues… Such words crushed me heavily, but one thing I never forgot is that to every great destiny there will always be obstacles and challenges, if you don’t experience them it is because you are not working hard enough. What matters is what you think and not what the world thinks, when God speaks greatness into your life, no man can shake that attribute expect you yourself, if you take heed to people’s negative comments. If you want to achieve and do something great, let not your heart and mind be focused | pleasing the majority and proving them wrong, the few that will believe in you are they that God is using to motivate your hard working spirit so keep pushing. My Parents believed in me, when no one else did, knowing that God is the reason to your Education, your talent, your career, your employment and desired plan of life, allow not the negative words of the surrounding turn down your already inbuilt greatness.

My 3rd book Rebuke them received an award during the Zambian Idea award in 2017. All this was successful because I had put God to be my success, of which can be of yours as well. 

DID YOU EVER FEEL LIKE GIVING UP?

His response was?

I have daily written hundreds of scripts about a lot of things, Many times I ask myself why do I do what I do? I mean why even bother when I can just sit back and watch things play out. Why don’t I just forget the rest and join the band wagon and enjoy?To be honest, I have done my best to keep quiet, to ignore the injustices, the wrong actions, the evil characters, the rusted generation and many youth’s misdeeds but I fail. I know this may not make sense to so many but this is my reality. The reality of a great generation, a great future, rehabilitating a generation that fears God haunts me, it makes me cry at night and takes away my sleep. The more I try to keep quiet about issues that affect our people, my fellow youths, and those growing up, the more oppressed I feel. Many have misunderstood this for hatred whenever I sound too negative about someone’s actions but far from it, this is about love. The love for people and not only our generation but also the next generation. Sometimes it appears like am doing it for the voiceless but the truth is I do it for my own peace too. I know in my quest for justice and truth, even for the unhopeful characters and behaviors, I may have offended so many but that is unintentional. This is about the love. The comfort in doing what is right, of every soul out there is a possibility of the comfort of other unhopeful individuals…
