For over two decades the mystery behind the departure from the stage and public space by one of Zimbabwe’s legendary artist Lovemore ‘Majaivana’ Tshuma has drawn many schools of thoughts and conspiracies. To many, his last album Isono Sami is the closest source for answers. This week ZAZISE a Bulawayo based media company released a detailed documentary titled The Story of Lovemore ‘Majaivana’ Tshuma.
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.
“Simbarenyu” does not disappoint. Lamont and Killer T sing the glory down as they remind the listener since this barren world is not our home, we are just travelers on our way to a better place even though we need to be strengthened by God. They sing “Taida simba renyu Mambo tikunde”.
Enzo just dropped Uri Kutsvirei a song that can easily pass as another song if you listen to it in a rush but if let it sink you will pick many things.
First Pop Up club in Victoria Falls opposite Shearwater Cafe. It took a week to grade the land and set up the venue, ancillary and ablution facilities. The exquisite five star set up saw the erection of a big Marque which housed top-notch all-white furnishings.
Gafa is a brainiac, a philosopher and he’s probably got a very high IQ (Intelligence Quotient) again, this sets him far apart from other artists in his genre. His obsession with extraterrestrials, metaphysics and sophisticated technology demystifies the view that musicians are people without substance
Winky D’s new album Njema is more of a social and cultural protest than political. It is a well-orchestrated and arranged piece carrying songs with rich lyrics that are linguistically pregnant.
Epic! That is the word to describe those performances and I want to single out Courtney Antipas Sharon Manyika Machingura Michael Mahendere Kudakwashe Mutsvene and Janet Manyowa for those big acts with a very special mention to Ngonidzashe Mavera Aka Prophecy! His set was ridiculous! It’s been a long time since I’ve watched someone put on a real show and he did just that. The high energy, the dancers and the delivery was simply exceptional. His double up with my boy Takura Shonhai on Jehova was what can I say? Sick! In hip hop lingo. It was amazing to say the least. It’s a clean bill of health for the PERMICANS from me. A thumbs up!
Let’s not hit the dog whilst hiding the knobkerrie here: the response to Enzo Ishall’s latest video, Highest Score, has been underwhelming. Staggeringly so. How underwhelming?
This is must-see entertainment, ladies and gentlemen. Mixing a light-hearted party sentiment with the very real critique of the unnecessary lack of civility arising from our lived frustrations, the song hits all the right notes. Macheso’s crooning provides the appropriate amount of contrast to Freeman’s already-melodic chanting.
