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.
