Career

Brighton & Hove Albion

On 6 July 2021, he joined Premier League side Brighton & Hove Albion on a four-year contract, for an undisclosed fee. He scored in a 3–1 pre-season friendly win at Luton Town on 31 July.

He made his competitive Albion debut on 14 August in the opening game of the 2021–22 season away at Burnley where he was replaced by Adam Lallana at half time of the eventual 2–1 victory at Turf Moor. On 24 August, Mwepu assisted Jakub Moder’s first Albion goal in the second-round EFL Cup away fixture at Cardiff City where Albion won 2–0. He scored his first goal for The Seagulls on 27 October, putting them back level to 2–2 in an eventual penalty shootout loss – in which his penalty was saved – away at Leicester City in the EFL Cup. Three days later, he scored his first league goal for the Sussex side, inspiring Brighton’s comeback with a stunning 25–yard strike in an eventual 2–2 away draw against Liverpool.

Mwepu had a slow start to 2022 and in general to his time in Sussex due to injury and illness, thus had limited playing time. On his first start since his return from injury, Mwepu scored and made an assist for Trossard’s opener in the 2–1 away win at Arsenal on 9 April, to help Brighton end their seven-match run without a victory. Graham Potter said that Mwepu has a “slight injury in his groin which probably means that will be him for the rest of the season,” after picking up the knock during the 3–0 away victory at Wolves on 30 April. His debut season with The Seagulls was marred by injuries though he had made a positive impact and at the club’s end-of-season awards, Mwepu won Goal of the Season for his strike at Liverpool in October. Mwepu managed to recover in time to appear as a substitute in the last game of the season, a 3–1 home victory over West Ham, with Brighton achieving their highest top-flight finish in ninth place.

On 10 October 2022, Mwepu retired from professional football at the age of 24 after being diagnosed with a rare hereditary heart condition.

International 

In 2014 Mwepu was part of the Zambia national under-17 team that represented the country at the 2015 African U-17 Championship, where Zambia played Niger, Nigeria and Guinea from group A. Mwepu is known for his versatility in the field of play as demonstrated at the 2017 Under-20 Africa Cup of Nations in Zambia, where he scored a goal and was among the best substitutes of the tournament.

Mwepu scored his first international goal for Zambia in an AFCON Qualifier against Algeria on 2 September 2017 at the National Heroes Stadium in Lusaka, a match which Zambia won 3–1.
