2019


On his last record which came with a video The Dot was plotting a heist in Vhumba Valley with some pretty chicitas.His latest release is a different ballgame as the Bulawayo emcee decides to tackle real life issues facing this country we call home.

The song which was produced by Rayo Beats and is aptly titled Power looks at the various manifestations of humanity's fixation....power.The Dot acknowledges that the actual source of anyone's power is the general populace while pointing out how those whom we elect into power abuse the trust we place in them to in turn abuse us.



The Dot goes on to mourn the death of freedom of speech while musing about how the young ones have no say in how their future will look like.The disparity between rich and poor gets a mention as does the lies politicians tell to get into office before engaging the middle finger to answer any questions citizens with legitimate concerns might have.

Zimbabwean's very own Hillzy was one of the 100 artists handpicked by Mr Eazy and Empawa Africa from amongst thousands others for a programme that would ultimately see 100 upcoming acts get funding to shoot a video of their choice.After a relatively short wait Hillzy's video is here and he went with the Beatsmith produced You Are Enough.

The catchy song's message is really  pertinent seeing as we are celebrating Women's month.You Are Enough is a timely reminder to all the women who have been wronged in the past that being ill treated by one man/experience does not diminish their worth.As Hillzy says "Its a bad day not a bad life" and as such the female voice matters plus the future is actually brighter despite the setbacks of the past.In the same vein females should learn from the past and not give second chances to those who toy with their emotions nomatter how sincere their apologies may seem.

The video itself features women from diverse backgrounds and ethnicities a nod perhaps to the universality of problems faced by the girl child and her ultimate resurgence and proud ownership of her 'Girl Power' badge.Hillzy suits up and mans a call centre connected to the  world's major cities as he spreads his gospel of female worth.



On the 2nd of March Nizzy Raps celebrated his birthday in style by gifting the game a 6 track EP titled Nyamasvisva named after his totem.On that EP is a song called Money Game featuring dancehall chanter Jay C with production by Trinnie Beatz which recently got a video courtesy of Studio Art Pictures.

Money Game does not stray away from its title thematically detailing how man's inherent need to swim in paper can only be satisfied by chasing that same paper at every turn.For the video Jay C and Nizzy take fly cars and pretty chicks to the hood with ferocious dogs and the squad also making appearances

Nizzy says the money game video is just the opening chapter of his 2019.He plans to shoot visuals for every other song on the EP while getting his music to as many ears and eyes as possible.



This Friday Skyz Metro FM welcomes Asaph to its family of presenters as host of Good Time Fridays.Asaph takes over from Mjox who has been reasigned to host the Vuka Vuka breakfast show at the Bulawayo radio station.


Good Time Fridays airs between 10 PM and 12 midnight.Asaph says the show is all about spreading good vibes all over the city so the playlist is gonna be filled with feel good bops from various genres.The show's timing just before the weekend means its the perfect introduction to the weekend so a lot of club bangers will be played to get people into turnup mode wherever they are.


Being an artist himself Asaph understands the struggle to 'get on' so he will shine a light on Bulawayo's talent by profiling Djs and upcoming artists during the show.When asked how his new gig will affect his music career Asaph pointed out that the radio show need not affect his career negatively seeing as its a music show and his brand is music.A buoyant Mr Good Times said he was confident people will rock with his show and fall in love with what he plans to do with it.


When one speaks of young talent on the comeup as far as the Zim Hip Hop scene is concerned Tanto Wavie is definitely a trailblazer.Be it in production or serving trappy waves behind the microphone Tanto is very talented and as such a lot of people were genuinely happy when he scooped best newcomer at the 2018 Zim Hip Hop Awards.One taint to his budding legacy however has been his obsession with making follow ups to Takura's moves and  releases but it seems he is ready to become his own man.

For his second visual of the year Tanto Wavie pays homage to an OG from his city John Chibadura.The video was directed by SimDoc and it sees Tanto and his squad dressed in attire popular in John's time as Tanto schools the youngins about a time before trap when it was the norm for Chicken bus drivers to play whole Chibadura albums on the long journeys to Egoli.

The song is a refreshing look at what Tanto could be outside Mr Okay Okay's shadow but Tanto being Tanto we did catch a subliminal jab at Takura.At the start of the video Tanto overlooks a tape written Noise (Takura's latest release) and picks one written Tanto which he proceeds to play.We just hope this is a visual metaphor revealing how Mr Wavie will now soley focus on his craft.



Last year around this time Vimbai Zimuto released her video for a song titled Hapana Kwaunoenda directed by Simba Gee.The hyper sexual video featured Vimbai clad in sexy lingerie unapologetically telling her man that she had turned on freacko mode and he was not going anywhere.The video proved to be a very polarising artistic showing with some applauding her for being so daring while a few hypocrites conveniently forgot the explicit content on their phones and called Miss Zimuto all sorts of names while hiding behind the "Showing skin is immoral and very much not African" mantra.



It turns out Vimbai was not fazed by these comments and as she celebrates the one year annivesary of her video she took to Facebook to post a spicy picture that already has tongues waging.In the picture her behind is on full display while her hands shield her breasts with a caption that suggests she is following the footsteps of her ancestors who were comfortable in their own skins.


Once again opinions have been diverse with some applauding her for her bravery while others were quick to call her out for being UnAfrican in the way she conducts herself.Vimbai herself is taking it all in her stride calling this particular photo just a teaser of steamier pictures coming to our timelines as she gets ready to drop a video she says will be more passionate than Hapana kwaunoenda around monthend.

One burning question that will undoubtebly remain as more videos of a similar nature are released is 'As Africans can we only embrace nudity,explicit content and content with an adult feel if it comes from abroad?'One thing thats  clear however is that foward thinking consumers of artistic excellence will gobble up the eye candy Miss Zimuto is currently cooking up in the kitchen.


Sometime last year King 98 took a trip to Nigeria and he managed to link up with Davido.The two worked on a single titled No Bad Vibes which was produced by King 98's go to producer Alie Keyz who also happens to be Cassper Nyovest's inhouse producer.A video was also shot and it was subsequently released in January this year.

King 98 has always caught a lot of flack for his talent or lack thereof but i strongly believe the Davido song is a step in the right direction not to mention a vast improvement when compared to his previous offerings.Its the sort of song that doesnt scream exceptional but with the right plugs and marketing it can comfortably sit on continental television and radio stations for quite some time.



But thats exactly the problem considering the talent and resources at King 98's disposal.The Impala Car Rental heir apparent needs to utilise the time he rubs shoulders with African music giants to hone his craft,negotiate for features that make sense and ultimately make the best material he can which must be undeniably good.He can then use the aforementioned resources he has plus connections to sup in the top tier of African Showbiz.Alie Keyz has crafted quite a number of hits for the Family Tree camp and with his expertise and young Dondo's passion for music,decent nay brilliant music can be delivered to our ears.

Then again we might be judging King 98 too harshly and he is already in Super Saiyan mode what with his upcoming album launch set for 1 May at Wingate Golf Club.The event has a star studded lineup that includes Nasty C,Davido,Nadia Nakai,ExQ,Tamy Moyo,Union 5 among others.In that regard it remains to be seen if King 98 will embrace his blessings and conquer Africa or if he will settle for mediocre songs with big names.


Technology has vastly changed the way in which earthlings consume their music as well as the pace at which they consume that very same music.Every other minute something new is uploaded on the internet and in this era where hype often trumps talent its really easy to miss out on good music.Here are five videos that might have passed you by which we believe deserve some contact with your eyes.

First up is Pro Beatz's Very Limited Edition produced by Mclyne Beats and filmed by Simdoc Films.Pro Beatz has a knack for acing everything he tries his hand at be it comedy,winning international beat boxing contests and with rap its no different.Pro Beatz adopts a trappy flow to declare how individuals like him are very rare and with his bag of skills we cant help but agree.



Next up is H3nry's rap rendition of Bryson Tiller's Sorry Not Sorry shot by Director AM.The one take video sees H3nry in his rappity rap bag floss about chopping it up with Cassper and Ice Prince,drop some gems to inspire the kids before making a vow that he will take the gang to the grammies.This very same piece of art got H3nry into the Empawa Africa top 100 and Bryson Tiller himself had to double tap a clip from the video posted on Instagram.



We also have Tashamiswa's Crew off her 2018 tape Established 99.The song was produced by Amvis Instrumentals with shots by Something Fizzy being edited by Sir Peter.Crew is just Tasha on her big girl shit showcasing her skills on the mic while her crew has a good time in the background.



Another video Zim Hip Hop fans might have missed is Meister's Vacheche featuring R Peels.The video is the fourth visual offering from Meister's forthcoming Sekutamba Sekuseka album.The song takes the concept of how babies are always being held and aligns it with how ghetto youthies are always high because kubatwa can mean being held for babies as well as being high for youthies.



Last but not least is Stunner's Maindiitisa produced by the good folk at No Limits.Maindiitisa is a rant towards life and society and the irony intertwined with the two.Society basically prepares you for a life it knows you might never taste from the moment you are born.As such you are equipped with skills to help you face the world but when you grow you realise the skills are either redundant or inadequate leaving you feeling used.




In recent times we have seen numerous new age acts work on music with the posterchilds of Choral apostolic music in Zimbabwe Vabati VaJehovah and groups similar to them.Zimdancehall artists like Winky D and Tocky Vibes have some of the most recognisable songs from this fusion and now you can add hiphop to that list.

Young emcee Blitz Unique aka Mr Zollywood enlisted the help of the apostolic OGs for Tiri Huruva an emotional reminder that our time on earth is limited.Blitz is on rap duty while Vabati VaJehova use their immensely powerful voiceboxes that might be mistaken for instrumentals to drive home the fact that we need to treat each other with love,compasion as well as empathy while we can because we wont be here forever and our acts will ultimately lead us to salvation or eternal damnation.

Overally the fusion is really unique and easy on the ears plus the message is a pertinent one.Vabati VaJehova did not come to play on the chorus and Blitz really held his own though we feel his raps could have been packaged a bit better.Peep the video below and tell us what ya'll think.




Social responsibility in the Zimbabwean music industry is about as common as a white King of Wakanda.Not to blame the artists though but operating in a stagnant economy where eating from your craft is damn near impossible it follows that sparing a few coins for the less privilleged might be an extreme sport.

However now and again we get a few acts who dedicate their time and money to issues in communities around them.On the 14th of February Cal Vin decided to hold a benefit concert at Mafakela Primary school with a few friends.Judging from video footage of the show the kids really had a good time plus proceeds from the gig all went towards the welfare of children at that particular school.Speaking on the sidelines of the show Cal Vin also implored other artists to follow suit and give back to their schools though it remains to be seen if they will heed his call.



This coming March The Vin is set to perfom his Nhliziyo album at Bulawayo Theatre at an event dubbed Nhliziyo Unplugged.The concert is set for the 2nd of March and he will be supported by Bryan K,Tiff Cake,Lee Mchoney,Thamy Khumalo as well as Reggie Brown.The show is one of many Cal Vin plans to hold this year as he has vowed to conquer the Bulawayo City Hall in August then a stadium in December.

If 'Team work makes the dream work' was a video it would probably look like this beautiful Kure  video.Behind the camera we have Leoy V for Letter Z Pictures while No Limits's Jamal handles the groovy production with Ishan delivering smooth vocals that are a perfect fit for Ti Gonzi's quotable life lessons disguised as bars.

Kure supports the theory that life is a journey,a long long journey.As such one travels many miles to reach his present only to realise that the future is even more miles ahead.In that journey Ishan urges listeners to stay true to themselves and not  change their moral DNA and purpose to fit society's standards.That way when they reach their destination regret wont be part of the celebrations.

Ti Gonzi employs double entendres and witty punchlines to talk about how delay is not denial.While his portion might not be at the dinner table yet he will trust the process and keep grinding because patience (patients) pays he done saw it when he visited the hospital.




The Its Nation duo of Fun F and N Jay Oh started 2019 on a high dropping a collaborative EP titled Tsika Dzemagevha which featured Fun F on production and some choruses with N Jay Oh handling the raps.One of the singles off the tape titled Gandanga received a remix featuring Metaphysics soon after and now the single has a video as well.

The video direction was handled by Its Nation Inc in collaboration with Gandanga Music with additional camera work by Mandebvu.Gandanga is a term that used to refer to Zimbabwe's guerilla fighters but in street lingo it can refer to anyone fighting for pretty much anything from turf,RTGS dollars to street cred.In that sense Meta,Fun F and N Jay Oh are 'Gandangas' moving incognito and seperating themselves from regular folk by how they move and operate.

Asked about how the song came about Fun F  says Metaphysics was shopping for beats after touching down in Harare from his Germany base and he asked Feezus to play him stuff they had done to see if he could jump onto something.Gandanga was an early favorite because of the beat and concept but also because that has been Metaphysics's alias for the longest time and it kinda fitted his brand so he quickly laced a verse and here we are.Rumour has it Metaphysics unloaded quite a number of clips at Its Nation and more work is definitely on the way.



Last year was a good year for Yung Tyran with a bunch of major moves and good releases from his Azania base.When he was not topping the YFM charts with his smash single Brenda Fassie Tyran was perfoming on SABC Live Amp beating out a lot of hopefuls who were also eager for that opportunity.

Its still early days in 2019 but Yung Tyran seems to be keeping the same energy he had last year.Already he has bodied an interview and perfomance on YOTV besides dropping four fire joints namely Know my name,Let it flow freestyle,Crew life and Monique.

Just recently South African rap legend K.O shouted out Tyran after a brief exchange on twitter led to the Skhanda Gawd listening to Tyran's music.It also turns out the exchange did not result in a cosign only but a song featuring K.O is on the horizon.As if this is not enough stunting Tyran has hinted at dropping an album stacked with South African Hip Hop royalty probably through a major label later this year.




Former Kontrol Tribe signee Wisdom Moyo aka Mawiza has delivered the visuals for Chipo Tsodzo shot and directed by Rasquesity Keaitse for Keaitse Films.The song happens to be the first single of Mawiza's upcoming album Namba Namba which he says will be heavily influenced by kwaito sounds.

The video has a very kasi aesthetic featuring scenes in his native Entumbane which showcase the day to day life in the hood from barbershop chillouts,pantsula danceoffs plus random pick and drops which signal the sealing of Kasi 'Mega Deals' if you will.Chipo Tsodzo the former Highlanders and Zimbabwe Saints soccer star who inspired the song also makes an appearance gifting Mawiza with a replica number 9 soccer jersey.

Mawiza says Chipo Tsodzo's versatility which allowed him to make the switch from a striker to a defender is a handy life lesson to anyone chasing their dreams as multitasking and being multiskilled is likely to make the paperchase light work.On his Kontrol Tribe departure Mawiza said there was no bad blood between him and Cal Vin and he was grateful for everything The Vin had done for him although it was now time for him to grow into his own man.




From the small city of Kwekwe comes Precious Herschneider Frank better  known in Zim Hip Hop circles as Phreshy and she is on a mission to add value to the Hip Hop scene by  telling her story in bars from the percpective of females who are vastly underrepresented in the genre.Currently she is on a press run to market her latest release a single titled 'Cold' which was produced by Vic Enlisted and is set to appear on an EP she is working on.


Miss Frank entered the proffesional rap scene in 2014 but she cites her family's love for music as an early influence that helped inform her decision to chase after that Mecca firespitters and wordsmiths aspire to reach in their lifetimes.To date Phreshy has worked on a few singles e.g My time,cyphered with DaRuler,Mel C,Tru North & Nina Grande besides lending her voice to projects by peers in the industry.She agrees that the music industry is not for the faint hearted having faced her fair set of challenges in her quest to blow up.


For starters the  industry is mostly male dominated and society has a tendency of pitting one femcee against the other as if many Queens can not create magic and coexist in the same space.Also up until recently Phreshy was juggling studio sessions with study time for a degree she was pursuing an exercise that put her multitasking skills to the test.Having recently graduated Miss Frank can now soley focus on the music and she has wasted no time promising an EP in the first quarter of the year.  


On production she has enlisted the help of seasoned producers like Vic Enlisted,Rayo Beats,Amvis Instrumentals and Toga to help her craft a sound thats unique to her.The feature list for what will be Phreshy's debut full length project has names like Natasha Muz,WaMambo,Rap Orators,Jungle Kid with more heavy hitters set to be announced as the EP's release date draws nearer

Jackson De Zimboy recently held the fourth annual Changamire Hip Hop Festival Awards at Club Sankayi in Harare.The awards showcase which Zimboy uses to showcase his gratitude to brands and stakeholders aligned to his had over 30 categories  with some categories having as many as 10 nominees.Most winners were deserving considering the work they put in the past year but some categories definitely felt like a Zimboy price giving ceremony for his cronies and homeboys.

A brief look at the timeline that is the Zimbabwean visual landscape in 2019 is bound to inspire a few goosebumps in whoever is watching.A lot of wonderful videos have been released and the numbers they are racking in are amazing.Both established,almost there and upcoming cats seem to have decided that 2019 is the year they go big or go home as far as impressive videos are concerned.

In our own humble opinion an early contender for video of the year is the TV room video by Hillzy featuring Gary Mapanzure.The two young talents linked up for a trappy R n B record that was a perfect fit for February a month widely regarded as belonging to Baby Cupid head honcho at Love 'R Us.

Shot on location in Cape Town by Daniel Lasker with direction coming from K Mane the crispy video has it all.There is  beautiful scenery and beautiful girls doing beautiful things and the wonderful thing is its all in sync with the messaging of the actual song.We could ramble on and on about the beauty of this visual masterpiece but we will let yall be the judges so go ahead and peep the niceness below



In 2016 Tafara Dondo better known by his stage name Union 5 was one of the many hopefuls trying to impress judges at a local talent show and prove that they indeed had talent.He did impress the judges and pocketed a cool $3000 for his pains in what could have been the peak for any teenager practicing art in Zimbabwe.For Union 5 the journey was not over just yet as he went on to polish his production skills,rapping skills,beat boxing skills until he ultimately dropped his HYPE tape,opened for Nasty C in Harare besides playing a few gigs in China.

Now the year is 2019 and the 20 year old multitalented artist is breaking new ground for Zimbabwe and himself.Union 5 is currently locked up in studio with 9 other upcoming artists from around Africa for a mentorship programme being conducted by Empawa Africa in collaboration with Mr Eazi,Diplo,Dj Edu and Shekinah.Besides being mentored on how showbiz works and how to break one's brand to the world Union 5 and his classmates get to work on new music amongst each other with input from Eazi,Simba Tagz,Diplo,Shekinah amongst other top African acts.

That Union 5 even made the top 100 is amazing because thousands of artists applied for the programme with Mr Eazi and his team handpicking their favorites.From the 100 the list was further scrutinized till only 10 remained of which our boy was one of the chosen 10.Before going to the Empawa Africa Masterclass Union 5 made sure to gift us visuals for Hona Magetsi one of the standout cuts from the Hype EP.



When Mclyne Beats is not working on some wavy trap vibes in the studio it turns out he will be  working on some wavy  trap vibes in the studio.The Banga Republic citizen has a new project titled the Vision album set to drop in a few weeks.

We already have a feel of how the album will be structured sonically after Mofo dropped a single off the project simply titled Mukanya an ode to members of the Monkey totem.The song  kicks off with shots at members of the Mhofu totem (on behalf of all the mhofus we have beef bro) before even more shots are thrown at an individual who claims to be the leader of the new wave but doesnt work with the kids choosing to call their music noise.Now we are not saying anything but Mr Okay Okay Okay really reps the Mhofu totem hard plus he recently put out a banger titled Noise and his feature list is smaller than my bank balance.



The feature list on Vision is mostly Mofo affiliates with R Peels,Pro Beatz,Drew the Mc,Antonio and Collin Ceezy getting spots on the album.The production team currently putting in work on the project includes Mclyne himself,Looda Beatz,Beatsmith,4uxion,Antonio and Union 5.

Fresh off an impressive showing at Coke Studio Africa Winky D has a Valentine Day gift for his huge following and boy are we impressed by the aesthetics and optics.The song was produced by his go to hitmaker Oskid and it features the vocal abilities of Miss Gemma Griffiths.

MuGarden is the story of two lovers choosing to ignore a world hell bent on interfering in their affairs and live like they are the only two people in the world.The video is a refreshing retake of Adam and Eve complete with a paradise teeming with God's handiwork from beautiful greenery to exotic wildlife.

Our two lovebirds roam their version of Eden and promise each other an eternity filled with love minus the deceptions of humanity's old enemy the serpent though he does make an appearance on the shoulders of Miss Gemma.



Reigning Zim Hip Hop Awards best femcee and Chitungwiza Music Awards Best female Natasha Muz has dropped her first track of the year.On this one she sheds off the aggression fans of her raps are familiar with for the softer melodic tone she often reserves for choruses.

The song is titled Zvenharo and it was produced by her Chitown homeboys over at No Limits studios.The smooth joint sees Natasha cry about a one sided  relationship whose day of reckoning is closer than it is far.

She declares her undying love and the sacrifices she has made for her lover at  cupid's beckoning while reminding said love of the many times she has overlooked his misdeamenors.All this for nothing as the one she loves is hell bent on making her suffer which is a pity because love is meant to be given freely and enjoyed to the fullest as opposed to always fighting against an opposing current.

The song is one we will definitely replay and we hope its a sign of more heat on the way as we wait for Natasha's full length debut.

The ever hard working Mr Takura Shonhai has new work out and all the numbers on the board say it bangs.At the time of going to press the video was number 6 on the top 10 trending videos on Zimbabwean youtube and the timeline generally agrees Takura scored another one with this trappy banger.

Titled Noise the song came complete with a video directed by Director AM featuring buff Takura homeys who look like they might rearrange your face if you make too much noise in Mr Okay Okay's face.One of the best takeaways from the song is Takura's self sandolization about his contributions to Zim Hip Hop since 2016 and an emphatic declaration that Zimbabwean Hip Hop is safe in his hands.

A few cats have tried trying Takura in the past and he emphasises that he is not about that life though he can do the Thanos snap if he is provoked.Overally the song is a reminder to all and sundry to ignore  life's various noises while focusing on your purpose and getting the bag.



Once upon a time there lived a man well vested in the culture of drip and sauce.Every other week   the protagonist of our  story one Calisto Nyamhute would show out on Ezomgido with shiny viscose threads,sick rides and a perm that would make Jimmi Hendrix jealous.

The attire was not all for show however but part of an elaborate plan by the 'Bullet' to get his hands on some special meat.Decades later his legacy lives on with a hip hop rendition of special meat courtesy of Tricky J,Tehn Diamond and gT Beats.

While we never got to fully decode what Nyamhute's special meat of choice was we can confirm Tricky J and Tehn Diamond are appreciating the special girls who make their hearts beat faster.Do listen to the new school Special Meat and tell us of you think its sawcy enough for Calisto Nyamhute to get a cameo in
