So there has been a real Buzz about Esau Mwamwaya the Malawian singer who lives in Hackney. First his version of Mia's paper planes as well as being featured on the front cover of Fader Magazine and a write up in the recent Time Out Africa issue.
Esau Mwamwaya version of Mia's Paper Planes
In 1999 Esau Mwamwaya moved to London, England and he currently run a second-hand furniture store in Clapton, East London.
Esau's store is on the same street as Radioclit's studio, and after the Radioclit boy's bought a bike of Esau and invited him to one of their house warming parties, they made friends and started working on music together. Half a year later, an album is taking form and we all want to share the beautiful music we feel we've been making!
