PROFILE

 B.A.N.K.S Music, full names Brian Kasonde Bwalya was born in Lusaka, Zambia, on the 10th of April. B.A.N.K.S Music is a Hip-Hop Emcee. He is first born in a family of four; he was raised in the tourist city of Livingstone. He developed writing skills while still in junior secondary school, where he wrote stories about what it was like growing up in Livingstone, the troubles and setbacks he faced as a child and basically fantasy. As he was growing up, he was exposed to a lot of music genres mostly Hip-Hop, jazz and RnB, he is influenced by the likes of Nas, Rakim, Lauryn Hill, Jay-Z, Talib Kweli, Lupe Fiasco, Mos Def, Andre 3000 to mention a few.

Despite B.A.N.K.S’ interest in writing lyrics and rapping, he never really exposed his talent, because he thought he was not good enough for the art. It was not until he went to high school and meet fellow Emcee and visionary Rastel that he was able to express his lyrical and rapping prowess. After completing high school he finally started recording professionally as a Hip-Hop artist. He recorded a track called "Take It Back" which featured K.R.Y.T.I.C & Rastel, the song received massive support giving Him & Rastel recognition amongst Hip-Hop heads.It was early in his musical journey that B.A.N.K.S decided to give his life and dedication back to Jesus Christ. He became born again and now records music that's filled with love and positivity. B.A.N.K.S together with Rastel are founders of Record Label called “Redeemed As Promised”.
