Born Bismond Tembo in Lusaka Zambia. It was not until early high school that DJ Bizzy Wizzy discovered his passion for music. It was whilst at Lundazi Secondary school, that he had his mind made up on what he wanted to do. It was full long deejaying from there on out but with pressure from family who wanted him to have something to fall back on in case the DJ stint didn’t go as planned, he also pursued studies in journalism.
In 1998, at the time known as funky B, he would be given a chance to showcase his skills at one of Lusaka’s hottest clubs at the time. That chance came by way of a man who they would together form an unbreakable friendship bond in the future. That man was DJ Links In Da Mix.
Bizzy Wizzy continued to ply his trade at a famous night spot in Kabwata. It was from here that name Bizzy Wizzy would grow by leaps and bounds so much so, he would spend a night playing for 3 to 4 different night clubs.
By 2005, it was a known fact that the man was right in the top bracket of Zambian DJs and testimony to this fact was his winning of the sprite DJ competition held in the same year. The following year, he scooped the 2006 Best mixing Club DJ on Hot FM and concluded it up with the 2007 Championship Battle of DJ`s in Kitwe. In 2008, he made history by becoming the first Zambian DJ to mix on Channel O’s OBOMA show.
