Nesnes was born Kelvin Khuzumba on 15 November 1988, in Thyolo, Malawi in a family of six. He was raised single-handedly by his mother and knew little about his father.
Nesnes started singing at a tender age. Singing came in naturally for him because he was always surrounded by music and he decided to pursue a career out of his talent in 2006.
In 2009, Nesnes recorded another song with his friends at Toxic Records in Lilongwe and the song never came out. All his efforts to start a career in music turned futile but he never gave up. Nesnes recorded over 40 songs from 2009 – 2013 but only a few were released.
In January 2013, Nesnes relocated to Blantyre and this was the beginning of a bright future. Three months down the line, Nesnes met Edward Kankhomba who had just started a Production house called Prime Time Media who signed Nesnes immediately as the first artist under his stable. Upon signing his first ever record deal, Prime Time Media released “Chidodo”. The song put him on the Malawian music map as it became a hit instantly.
In November 2013, Nesnes was featured on “Bola Kusache” a song by labelmate, Gwamba. It became Malawi’s biggest song of 2013 amassing more than 10,000 downloads within a short stint.
His latest singles, Mlendo and wanga ndiwe have dominated the downloading sites scooping position one on malawi-music.com.
Nesnes has one album which revolves around several genres such as Dance-hall, House, Lovers Rock, Reggae and RnB. It was released in September 2014.
