Karizma who is currently celebrating the 10th anniversary of his debut album is making major moves across the continent and parts of the world with his latest offering Shisha Pipe.The Young Nash produced joint which also boasts Yagi Dojo again on production details the tale of a certain lady and her friends who hit up the fellas for a night of fun fueled by drank, kush and good company.

To these ladies looking for a good time a relationship might as well be an archaic institution belonging in history books and the Uncle Scrooch (formerly of Studio Space) visuals shot with cutting edge cameras on location in Sandton,South Africa bear testament to this. Already the video has been playlisted on Zambezi Magic were it has taken pole position twice.Channel O traditionally anti-Zimbo has also shown the Harare/London based Karizma major love perhaps opening the doors for other Zimbabwean rappers to get playlisted on the same channel. South African stations Soweto TV and Planet Radio TV also have the video on heavy rotation.

The video has a modest 10 000 something views on YouTube but so impressive are the visuals and laid back rhymes that an Australian station AfroPop TV has given the joint spins. Radio stations across Africa mostly in South Africa and Zimbabwe have given Shisha Pipe a somewhat permanent home on their charts and other general playlists.Urban stations like Metro Fm,UJ FM,YFM have playlisted the track as has a plethora of other pan African countries are also showing Karrizy love.

With winter over and summer beckoning,Noble Stylz and N jay-Oh dropped a surprise collab that mixes hip hop,afro pop and a bit of guitar action titled Dzikama.Produced by Fun F with help on the beat from Tha Pro and Qwuilz McSways as well as Congolese artist Rashid on guitar Dzikama has enough bounce and groove to keep any dancefloor alive and signature witty Noble lines to keep day one fans of his pen smiling. Additional vocals courtesy of T-Kash, Fun_F, Fuji_X, Lloyd Soul  and Runniq were sprinkled all over the joint to spice up the feel good summer groove.

Noble has two verses and he switches from toasts and turning up with the squad  to telling his competition to chill since they will never outrap him.He likens himself to the corpse of a fat person  to make his heavyweight status clear  before proceeding to floss that dudes can talk all day everyday but he is the only one getting paid to do just that by virtue of his role as a talkshow host (The Sound Of Silence).Having said that he wants us to know the only sound he listens to is that of the almighty dollar and before dudes complain about not getting paid they should renember he has always paid them no mind.The bragging doesn't end there as homey calmly tells us he can freestyle our best writtens and win awards fair and square without bribing the judges

I freestyle your best verse handitonyori
Awards ndowinner fair handitonyori

In keeping with the groovy feel of the song he does raise his glass to hustlers and hood queens keeping it real the world over.

N jay-Oh comes through repping the booze gang.From celebrating deals that have been sealed with shots of amarula & tequila to looking for Noble,Kash,Fun & Rue so they can go ham on the shots N jay-Oh has one thing in mind and that's to get faded.The verse is lit though a bit short and the same can be said for the Runniq bridge as well which left us wanting to hear more of this vocally endowed songstress.Fun_F forever the multitasking guru lends his voice to the chorus besides also mixing and mastering the joint and making sure the diverse talents on this joint are fused to perfection.You can view the lyric video to this joint on the Clive Njobo YouTube channel.
