Zim Hip-Hop Artist Nash Da-King releases New Music For his Birthday And Addressed On Jae Mac Statements.
story by Royal PrinceHarare based hip hop artist and probably one of the youngest to at least get airplay on local radio stations,Nash Da-King turned 19 on 17 September 2014 and in celebration of his birthday,has released a song titled Sikhi Bhaudi for free.Well I liked the young man's creativity and be sure to check it out by sending "Sikhi Bhaudhi" to Whatsapp number +263 733 679 605
On another note I managed to have a chat with Nash on various issues surrounding him as an artist.Nash said he is grateful to God for leading him this far and is happy to be the artist to come up with dope tracks like Young black and gifted(check it out here) and Supa Mandiwanzira, ( a track which has been doing well and has for a number of weeks got featured on ZiFm HeartBeat Local Top 10 Show enjoying pretty fair positions).
He also got the chance to address an issue raised by JaeMac, a music producer on which he was castigating some Zim Hip Hop Artists for apparently 'stealing' concepts.On his facebook wall Jae Mac included supa mandiwanzira as a copy-cat production,,, as seen on his timeline
“Here is my problem with “Zim HipHop” and just ZIm people in general.its like we are lazy to think and come up with new ideas and our own concepts..So Junior Brown did a song called “Phil Chiyangwa” which was a radio hit,i think.now some rappers think using that same concept and just pluggin in different names gon automatically give em a hit.that ish dont work! i see theres been songs like “Bona Mugabe”, “Supa Mandiwanzira”, “Sir Wicknell” “Pokello” etc …i personally think thats the lamest thing one could ever do..get your own concept,build on it and come up with something we’ve never heard or seen before..to be honest i havent even bothered to listen to the songs that came after “Phil Chiyangwa”...(checkout the full story on Mcpotar's website here )
Contrary to Jae Mac statments, Nash said and i quote (from our whatsapp conversation)
"supa mandiwanzira was used as the tittle for the track in line with what i wanted to sing about"
"its basically calling for brothers to eat from their art"
Asked if he was influenced by Jnr Brown's song Phil Chiyangwa,Nash had this to say...
"Jnr Brown has no influence on that song all i have is respect for his art".....he continued as saying "Even Supa Mandiwanzira as used in the song is Just a metaphor and using that name was appropriate figure of expression and was basically applauding entrepreneurship ideals"
"plus as long as an artist comes up with his version on anything ,thts his..if not then almost everyone is a copy-cat from you producers (referring to Royal Prince) to other rappers....we have songs made from Zvirikufaya stuff, we had stunner with something on zvirikufamba seyi and we have you producers making baselines similar to Mike Wills and Lex lugers).
Its now God's knowledge whether Nash lied on His Birthday lol. You can check out supa mandiwanzira song review and download link here
After all is said and done its time we say Happy Birthday Nash-Da King may God bless you.
