Starval keeps music career active in South Africa


South Africa-based musician Steven Dzonzi, who goes by the moniker Starval Stevenz, has revived his music career in the Rainbow Nation, having struggled to elevate it in the country.

Starval said Tuesday his target is to put the country on the international stage through music.

“I had challenges with funding for my music projects at home but I never gave up. And now that I am in South Africa, I have been able to raise enough to record music in top studios and, for now, I would say I am back on track with my music career,” he said.


His meeting with producer Grant C in 2015 turned out to be a breakthrough and that he is growing his base with his music.

“It is just a matter of time before I make another huge step but for now I am happy that some of my songs are enjoying airplay at home,” he said.

Currently working on his debut album, Starval dropped his first single in 2019 titled ‘I Do’.


The youthful artist recently also released a music video for his track ‘Baby Chonde’.

Having won a Jozi award as best up and coming artist in 2019, Starval said he wants to up his game and hold more performances in South Africa and back home.

Starval has since called upon people in the diaspora to raise Malawi’s flag by embracing the country’s culture and promoting it and avoiding being obsessed with foreign cultures.

“Those in the diaspora; let us not adopt foreign cultures, let us show wherever we are based that we are Malawians. We need to show that through dressing and our talents such as music,” he said.

Starval, who is into R&B fused with traditional dances from Malawi, comes from Ntcheu District.
