MANASHE _ The Zimbabwean star rises from Mzansi

Manashe Music (Tapfumanashe Rujeko Mutseyekwa) originally from Zimbabwe , is an extremely seasoned music producer and composer with a soulful touch in his distinct and timeless  creations.

EARGROUND

Raised by one of Zimbabwe’s musical geniuses and guru, the late great Fortune Muparutsa , from a tender age , his productions surely tell no fibs. Dai Ndakaterera is Manashe’s second offering after the smashing Zunza which was released around 2018. Zunza, which was released under the legendary KalawaJazmee a South African music powerhouse which needs no introduction to many. The song  also featured Lvovo Derrango a house hold kwaito name from Durban .

On this one Manashe has roped in Gushaz also a Zimbabwean native ,with a powerful unique voice that has soothing harmony ,eluding the pure sound of African melody.

Trust Samende, Mokoomba’s lead guitarist is on board also, with  his signature strums taking the song through the highly sought for Kumu Kanda vibe which solidifies and gives this masterpiece all the authenticity it deserves.

Not forgetting Mzimba ,a true Zulu maestro seasoned in his artistry , from KZN on vocals .Putting together all these wonderous elements, Manashe has stepped up to produce a hybrid sound that is richly African , as it fuses the two languages Shona from Zimbabwe and Isuzulu. Ubolalela / Dai Ndakatererai, is a striking powerful piece ,well done  in every respect ,talk about the production , performance and lyrical content.

Munashe Music

Mixed by undoubtedly one of the best sound engineers in Southern Africa , Cape Town based and Freshly Ground sound engineer Keith Farquharson and Mastered by Aris Kokou from Deep Soul Space , an Afro House record label based in Greece , the song laments on the need for young people to heed their parents advice to avoid future regrets. Listen , enjoy , share and dance to the beautiful vibes that echo deep in the African valley.

Will his fishing rods bring to shore a follow up smashing jam of this nature? One can only wonder.
