“Zino Irema (Ndirikukuwonai Zvangu)” – Takura
Takura is relatively unknown to most but the more prominent afro-pop duo Soul Afrika is how he officially broke into the urban scene in Zimbabwe. The award-winning duo are known for their hit singles “Newe” (ft. Tehn Diamond) & “Zvinhu” but seem to have temporarily split to work on solo projects. Takura hasn’t wasted any time having already released 2 strong singles this year titled “Zino Irema” and “MaObama”, which showcase his versatility and rapping prowess.
“MaObama (Zvakanaka Tozvidawo)” – Takura
Interestingly, both singles feature the popular trap production that has been dominating mainstream urban hip-hop for a while now. Up until now, only South African artists seemed to have mastered the sound to duplicate it to perfection, but these two new singles change my perception in that regard. Not only did Takura deliver on the song itself but the videos, production & song-writing was well executed to international standards. I think he has a winning formula here!
