The concept of The African Dream album is the unification of common goals, ambitions of African populations, highlighting the spirit of love, unity and togetherness and the basis to move forward as a collective towards our greater goals of a better life, mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually.
The African Dream speaks to people of all colour, race and creed as regards the common thread of living positively in a world full of love. The message of love is universal and the majority of the album sang in English to enhance its appeal to audiences across Zambian borders.
A relentless performer, Cactus has been busy working with artists on the international and local scene. Artists such as Hugh Masekela, Brian“ Gold” Thompson, Oliver Mutukudzi, P-Square, JK and a lot more. Also known as “The Philosopher”, Cactus’ music always reveals spiritual insight, deeper life philosophy and an understanding of the power of love. It is clear to see and hear that Cactus was born to do what he does and his lyrical content and style sets him apart from many artists. Combining his rap-like flows with the melodies and chants commonly associated with reggae and dance hall music, his debut – Bush Territory – was a hot one.
Cactus and his music are one and the same, so it is no surprise that he is also heavily involved in social causes with organisations including Zambia Red Cross and Electoral Commission of Zambia while being a part of the Rhythm of Life Project and the Every Voice Counts Campaign on good governance under the Governance Secretariat of the African Peer Review Commission.
Cactus is also a Brothers for Life Ambassador among other personalities who include First Republican President, Dr. Kenneth Kaunda. He is also one of the Fly5, Brand Ambassadors for Proflight – a composition that includes JK, Pompi, Slap Dee and Petita Mwanza, Zambia’s first supermodel.
