MIKAR-THE-VIPAR IS HEADING FOR CHART SUCCESS
‘Almost certain’ rappers new release will peak in the iTunes top 20
A CHESHAM rapper is thankful to his fans after it looks like his debut mini album is set to chart in the top 20.
Chart-topping rap star Michael Kamara, known to fans as Mikar-The-Vipar, released his debut mini album titled Truuuuu SaloneBoy for pre-order on iTunes recently. Mikar is now ‘over the moon’ after it looks ‘almost certain’ that the album will peak in the iTunes top 20 when it is released on November 5 due to a high number of pre-orders. The 24-year-old from Chesham, who remains unsigned, has had three consecutive charting singles and last August he became Buckinghamshire’s first artist to top the iTunes world chart. Mikar is heading off to Sweden, where he partly recorded Truuuuu SaloneBoy, in the next few days to do some more recording.
Mikar, who grew up in Pond Park in Chesham and still lives in the area, is very much loved by the region’s teenagers and his continuous interaction has helped him amass a huge social media following in the UK and abroad.
The rapper, who has supported mainstream acts like Chipmunk, Rudimental, Rita Ora and Wretch 32 at the O2, only has one music video titled Gimme Love, which has more than 71,000 views on YouTube. Mikar has assured his fans that he plans to shoot more visuals and make better songs.
The emcee has also called on fans to continuously support his efforts as he continues to shed light on the region.
