Chisha Mubambe aka Chromez was born in Gaborone, Botswana to Zambian parents, his mother being a business woman and his father a print media journalist. He started his career in the radio industry in 2011 at Pan African Radio 105.1FM, a year later after auditioning at every radio station in Lusaka, at the brink of quitting trying to break into the industry he did what he called his “Last audition” at Power FM after being convinced to do so by a close friend that had caught wind of the new radio station that was looking for fresh radio talent. After auditioning and not being optimistic of being called back, he got called by the radio station for a meeting with the CEO Mr. Kenny Tonga a week after he auditioned, in the meeting he was informed that his services were required and that he would be aided to enhance his “raw talent” to become a full blow professional in the radio industry.

On his shows he doesn’t shy away from airing his views on any matter that is presented to him which is what he tries to encourage his listeners to do too, he wants them to be free to express themselves and be proud of where they are from. Chromez’ style can be described as rapid shots of information coupled with warm witty undertones that have proved to be happily accepted and unique.
