Love at first sound is how I would define ISHE’s music. I have no doubt that his sound will make you want more of his amazing voice. The creativity in his writing skills is impeccable. If you listen to ‘ LOOKING FOR YOU NOW ‘ you will get to understand
3 « JØY

5 « DING’O
Crossing over to a genre we must have sleeping on for quite some time. Shebeen Rap is a sub-genre of hip hop that is fused with elements of future bass, 1990s kwaito, hip hop and other genres. Shebeen rap is still being pioneered with other artists from Roman Rap Studios like Dough Major, Trey Kush just to name a few. Ding’o is it still on his mixtape which the streets of Zimbabwe are waiting on.
