Keith Shem Michael Mlevhu  was born September 14, 1950 in the town of Chingola and was one of the great "Zam Rock" names during the 70s, when he released 5 albums, but interrupted his career in music in the 80s and died not long after on March 5, 1988.

In 1976, Keith travelled to Nairobi under the sponsorship of Teal Record Company to record his second album Love And Freedom. Recorded at Sapra Studios, the album was still on the Mac Bullet label and set new record production standards. This was the first Zambian album to be presented in a full colour cover sleeve jacket. On the cover design, Keith, with plaited locks, is depicted adorned in military camouflage breaking the chains strapped around the globe, his axe deliberately aimed at Southern Africa, where Zimbabwe, Namibia, Angola, Mozambique and South Africa were still struggling for their freedom. The album design was accredited to the artiste himself.
