Vi­par strikes at num­ber one in charts

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

Rap­per Mikar-The-Vi­par’s latest sin­gle Flash­ing Lights has reached num­ber one in the iTunes World Chart A BUCKS rap­per has made history af­ter his new sin­gle reached num­ber one in the iTunes World Chart.

Michael Ka­mara, 23, from Che­sham, whose stage name is MikarThe-Vi­par, is cel­e­brat­ing af­ter his latest sin­gle Flash­ing Lights, which came out on Fri­day, peaked at num­ber one in the iTunes World Chart on Sun­day.

It is even more of an achieve­ment be­cause it is be­lieved he is the first Bucks artist to get a num­ber one and be­cause un­signed artists, such as Mikar, rarely en­ter the charts.

This is not the first time Mikar has had chart suc­cess. Ear­lier this year, his sin­gle Break of Dawn peaked at num­ber seven in the iTunes World Chart.

The star’s de­but sin­gle, Gimme Love, was re­leased last sum­mer and reached num­ber 11.

The latest chart suc­cess fol­lows on from Mikar per­form­ing a sold-out show in Gavle­borg, in Swe­den, last month.

Mikar, who at­tended Water­side School and Chiltern Hills Academy, has been in Swe­den for the past month work­ing on mu­sic projects and on Satur­day he was in­ter­viewed by Swe­den Ra­dio P4.

Fol­low­ing his suc­cess, var­i­ous mu­sic la­bels have ap­proached Mikar to sign him, but he has not agreed to any yet.
