T-Sean Career 

In 2010, T-Sean established himself as a reggae and dancehall artist. His first songs Wonder Why, which featured Feat B1, and Show Me Ya Swag which featured some of Zambia’s biggest artists Macky2, Cactus, Milz, Daxon, Camster and T.boy.

In 2012, the two musicians would launched their own record label, Bizzy-Baila International. T-Sean released his first few songs under the record label K-Army, but didn't stay long and left the label.

In the same year he also wrote songs for Judy, Where You Are, and for T.boy the sing Woman of my Life. These songs were huge musical hits for the artists and also showed what a prolific songwriter T-Sean is. In 2012, he released his debut album Adamu.

Over the years, T-Sean said he found his musical inspiration from other artists like Morgan Heritage, Lyaz, Sean Paul and Busy Signal. His musical sound had been compared to Gyptian and Beenie Man.

When he released his second and third album, named 90 Days and Mu Mirror respectively, his fans revelled in the music. Some of his most popular songs include Lekelela Bokosi, Mulipo, Permanent, Daily Daily and Umuyo.

T-Sean once again showed of his rapping band singing skills on the tracks Adamu and Wonder Why, something his fans are very appreciative of.

T-Sean has always used his music as a platform for his social commentary, and with his sold-out performances across Zambia, his fans always know what’s on his mind and what issues he is championing for.

And his music has been recognised with several nominations and wins at the Born and Bred and Zambia Music Awards. He continues to keep releasing great music for his fans and in 2020 he revealed that he had dropped the single, 'I Love You' and 'Killer Love'.
