Beginning as just an idea between college friends, the fast-rising Zambian Afropop supergroup – Urban Hype was first conceived during a casual conversation in a dormitory at Zambia’s Center for Accountancy Studies between-group founders Ajay and a then classmate and eventual group member Prince Roy.

But, by the year 2013, Urban Hype had culminated into the well-rounded musical mix it is known for today. Founder Lweendo Mweemba otherwise known as Thee Ajay would deliver the hip-hop flavour, while Reuben Sakala also known as Bad Man Shapi brought the dancehall rhythm, and finally, lead vocalist R&B superstar Fumbani Changaya -AKA F Jay- sang THROUGH the smooth ZED-vibes –thus the Urban Hype begun.Shortly after the group coming together, the release of the international hit single Chimbilimbili followed and consequently left Urban Hype at the top of charts beyond Zambia’s very own, in both Malawi and Kenya. As a result, a contract from Kenyan based Music Label Taurus Musik came almost immediately after.
