After leaving the service of his European employer, Kipchamba formed Koilong’et band together with some pioneering Kalenjin musicians. They started recording at Chandarana Records Limited in Kericho. When the Koilong'et band partnership collapsed in 1959, Kipchamba took a solo venture and went to record tracks. In totality, he recorded a little over 800 titles under his name.
In 1955, he was initiated as per Kipsigis custom of tumdo into Sawe age-set. Soon after, he moved to Njoro in Nakuru County where he worked at a European settler farm, and learnt how to play an acoustic guitar.
Initiated in 1941 by the British administration under Information Department, Nandi broadcasts would air twice weekly and by 1957, 406 Kalenjin talk shows and 63 Kalenjin music pieces were recorded and aired, with most of these having been sung and written by Kipchamba.

He briefly attended Kaplong Intermediate School, presently Kaplong Boys High School in Sotik and dropped out in 1955 due to lack of school fees.
