Early life 

Wilbroad Msiska is born on 17th October 1981, in a family of 13. His father, who was a  teacher and field assistant in Zambia, had two wives. His father died in 1986 when he was only four years old. His maternal grandparents raised him in Karonga (The northern part of  Malawi / his mother’s birthplace) after his father passed away. His maternal grandfather is a blind man and this made Wilboard's life, not an easy road. His mother was a hard-working business lady. She used to trade fish to pay for the children's school fees. His mother was always giving him hope, even when times were rough. He was growing up and recognised that he has musical ability. This ability keeps him alive and enables him to get remembered by anyone who neglected him. 

Music career  

1999 he started to learn to play the keyboard after seeing his friend playing it. He taught himself by ear and by reading piano books. His major influences in reggae music are Bob Marley, Peter Tosh Joseph Hills of Culture group, and Lucky Dube. 

Soon after completing secondary school in 2001, he started writing his songs. Willy  Wheelz practiced them in church and as well different places where performances were 

heard. 2003 he studied Information Technology. Willy was sent by his church (Evangelical  Lutheran Church in Malawi) to Sweden on a youth exchange program. In Sweden, he had the opportunity to take music production lessons. This was a stepping stone for him. He was so excited and got after his return home more familiar with studio work. Willy continued the training with Bick Kamnganga, who later employed him as a music producer under his label  Nalisewo (Later RU Entertainment) from 2006 to 2009. During this period he produced his  Kuchedwa Chala. In 2009 he moved to Zambia, where his elder brother and sisters used to live. God gave Willy a vision, that he would be someone famous, but with no restrictions in regards to his revelations. Due to this inspiration, Willy Wheelz writes different genres. This makes his style unique and the lyrics different. 

2012 after completion of his studies in Missiology, Willy Wheelz moved to South Africa. He produced several artists there. He was signed by Bilashaka records the same year. The label got. He got another job with another studio, by the name Giggla Productions. He started working on the album “Hard life goes”, which finished in 2015 January. 

2016 he released another album “Say No”. 

Willy is a focused person and he is ready to bring his career to the next level. His motto is "the sky is the limit." 

Currently working on a new album to be released in June 2022.
