This year started on a bad note as the nation was robbed of a ghetto icon, dancehall superstar, crowd puller  cum national hero, Soul Jah Love. His death culminated into a musical gold rush as some artists sought to milk rich musical capital from his ever flourishing career. 

It is, after all, this particular reality that makes us anticipate new projects without hearing any of them: we have a safe bet of what’s coming: Winky D will mix social commentary with a heavily metaphoric song about wooing a girl, King Shaddy has some crazy Danmore story to tell, JP will feature a young African superstar or two while the lead single will feature a rural or ghetto Zim story. Standard.
