Bio

Born in Lusaka, Zambia on the 4th June 1980, Malenge Terence Ngondo aka Styles MC; The Briefcase Bandit, The Glad Hand, lived and studied there until he moved to England in 1990 for study purposes. He completed his General Certificate in Standard Education at Bedford School, Bedfordshire in 1996 and remained there another two years to complete his A- Levels.
Although never deciding to take up music academically Malenge maintained great interest in music spanning a collection of over a hundred albums. On his trips back to Zambia in the mid to late 1990s he managed to fit in a fair number of DJing gigs (a hobby of his) and did his first vocal performance with his brother and MC, Dangerous Guy aka Your Daily Bred, at Zambia’s first major Hip Hop Competition ‘The Million Kwacha Rap Contest’ in October of 1998 hosted by Chisha Folotiys ( TV Presenter, ‘Carte Blanche’ in South Africa and owner of ‘Tiyende Magazine’ and ‘Mondo music’; major brands in Zambia). This also allowed Malenge the opportunity to do radio interviews and skits on Radio Phoenix (the largest private radio station in Zambia).
Going back toUniversity in England in January 1999, Malenge focused mainly on his computer studies Djing only occasionally at the local Hall of Richmond International University in London and on some occasions West End London clubs, but there were no vocal performances to be seen for his dark and dastardly alter ego Styles MC. During the years 0f 1999 to 2004 Malenge still continued to write music and lyrics, writing songs for friends in College bands and Styles MC material but his own stuff was never recorded until he returned back to Zambia in September 2004.
Since then he has gone back to his production and song writing routes producing over 150 tracks over the last 4 years. Sounds include Hip Hop, R n B, House, Trance, Break Beat, Garage, Drum N Bass, Jazz/ Swing, Reggae and Pop.

Though he has chosen to release 'The Demo' first (a compelation of tracks from his first 5 albums) in 2007, His first Dance record ‘Ascendance’ and his first Hip Hop and R n B double album ‘Ghost Stories Vs Radio; The Interview’ are now on release since 2011.
