I Have Been Overlooked and Gave Up On – Ruff Kid Cries


Ruff Kid is one of the best artists to ever come out of Zambia. He was part of the biggest label, The XYZ Entertainment and one of the first artists to ever be signed under it.

A few years ago, Ruff Kid left the label and went solo and he hasntbeen consistent with the music ever since.

He has dropped a couple of records here and there, he even went to collaborate with South African trapstars, Emtee and Loli Native.

A few months ago, Ruff Kid left Zambia and went to Malawi because he claimed Zambians didn’t appreciate him enough. But a frw weeks ago, announced the Lusaka Trap Festival which is to be headlined by Slapdee and Bobby East, and also SA’s trap star Emtee.

This seems to have touched Ruff Kid because he wasn’t contacted to be among the headliners of the show despite him being a trapper – Self Proclaimed King of Zambian Trap.

Do you think Ruff Kid fell off or he can get back at the top if he puts in the work?

After he said, “I’ve been overlooked, doubted, forgotten, left out and gave up on. And despite all of that I never let any of it stop me,” fans were saying he’d still be popping if he was under XYZ.

We wish to see him making waves again in the Zambian music industry.
