Born Peter Kalumba Chishala, but Zambia knew him as Professor PK Chishala. He dominated the local
Zambian music scene in the mid 1980’s to early 1990’s. He found a way of expressing his views on the morals
of society in present day Zambia. Even though most of his songs were written and produced many years ago,
they are often easy to relate to even today.
He kept Kalindula alive, with an infusion of modern music; he kept
his audiences captivated by his story telling through his music. The themes he sung about ranged from politics
to hypocritical church elders (e.g. his song Common Man), PK laments on how the salaries of the common man
are low, and how hunger is wide spread, as the price of mealie – meal is high.In his song “pwetete pwetete, he
tells a story of how a woman or wife who is fed up with her husband’s drinking habits. Who not only vomits on
their bed but also spoils his pants. The woman is fed up and he tells this story so hilariously.
