Besta is commonly known as “Valentine”, a character name from the role he plays in the famous and much loved telenovela ZUBA. He was born in Mbala, raised and schooled in the eastern part of Zambia where he did his primary school at Mwami basic School, grade eight and nine at Chassa Secondary school and his grade 10 and 11 at Chizongwe technical high school in, and due to circumstances he left Chipata for Kalene and completed his 12 from Kalene Day Secondary school in 2014. In 2015, he lived in Luanshya as he awaited his grade 12 results and eventually moved to Lusaka to pursue a Barchelor’s Degree in Mass Communication.
Besta is an aspiring real estate business owner despite being into media. He aspires producing and selling most of his personal scripts and promoting several other artists. He is currently working on his long lasting scripts for television series. He runs a media house called Rateless Media and wishes to extent its outreach to greater heights.
He loves being creative. Apart from acting, writing scripts, editing videos, photography and videography skills that he exerts in his Media house, he also writes music and loves writing songs and playing guitars in free times, he loves to keep fit- always working out. He loves to read and travel (Especially places with natural sources). He believes in hard work and among his favorite quotes are; “A man who drives his father’s car is not allowed to speak I a council of men who own bicycles” and “A smooth sea never made an experienced sailor”. He loved to stress out the point that not only those born to rich families (rich kids) can make it life, and no one is more superior to the other.
Besta is open to working on well-meaning upcoming projects in future.
