Originally from Zambia, let me introduce you to YounG-World. He was recently featured in the New Zealand Herald and is currently sitting at number two on The Audience, the NZ on Air funding channel. He would love some support to get him to Number 1 by the end of the month. His performance is a mix of hiphop and pop, and at the age of 17 is writing music to encourage his peers to make positive life choices. The EP was named "The Arrow" as YounG-World aims to spread positive messages about life and the journey that he has had with God. He speaks about how God has given him the strength and direction he has needed in his life, and would like to be able to share that same strength and direction toward God, through his music.
