Brian Bwembya “Obama” Resigns From Zambia Association of Musicians (ZAM) To Join Active Politics…
According to sources, BFlow is positioning himself to run as Kabwe Central MP in 2021. His preferred party remains unknown.
Below is the statement:
RESIGNATION FROM MY POSITION AS ZAMBIA ASSOCIATION OF MUSICIANS’ PUBLICITY SECRETARY*
I wish to notify all ZAM members and stakeholders of the Zambian music industry that effective 27th December, 2018, I will no longer serve as Publicity Secretary for the Zambia Association of Musicians (ZAM). For now, I am unable to publish my resignation letter or share the reasons behind my resignation until the National Executive Committee (NEC) gives me a go-ahead.
I handed in my official resignation letter to the ZAM General Secretary on the aforementioned date and copied in the ZAM Chairperson and the National Arts Council (NAC) Director.
In my letter, I thanked the ZAM NEC for the support rendered to me during the time I have served as Publicity Secretary. I value the experience and knowledge I gained over the past 7 months. I also urged the team to feel free to let me know how I can help during the transition.
I would like to thank all ZAM members for having accorded me the opportunity of serving as the association’s Spokesperson for the past 7 months.
As some of you may be aware, I have been a member of ZAM for 10 years, and prior to being elected as Publicity Secretary, I served as Chairperson for ZAM’s HIV/AIDS and Social Commentary (HASC) committee. My decision to run for the position of Publicity Secretary in May 2018 was made after various calls from several members who wanted me to represent them by assuming a role in the association’s NEC. However, this journey has been cut short by some specific challenges that I do not wish to discuss publicly. Despite the reasons behind my resignation, I still have faith in the current NEC’s potential to change the course of the Zambian music sector and therefore I wish the team success.
I look forward to contributing to the growth of the association as an ordinary member and wish the NEC God’s guidance as they execute their duties.
God bless ZAM!
