So last week my brother Mcpotar dropped something and this week my brother Sharky dropped something too. The FOMO is real, but that's for another article...
Sharky has released his 5th single of the year (yes fifth, that's about enough for an EP yeah) and on production is none other than DJ Krimz Beatz. These two have an undeniably chemistry-laden working relationship, having collaborated on quite a number of tracks. “Sango” talks about how Sharky is still being underrated by some people, even though he has done a lot to prove himself worthy of being crowned king. There is a popular Shona saying that says “Sango rinopa waneta” which when loosely explained means “Hard work pays off”. There is also another saying which says “Musango ndodzungaira” which means “I’m wandering aimlessly in the forest”. Sharky combined these two and that's how he came up with the main concept for the song.
He talks about putting in a lot of work but not getting paid from it which is where the “wandering aimlessly” part comes in. As usual there are clever schemes and wordplay in
the 3 verses which might easily go over one’s head if they don’t really pay attention. DJ
Krimz Beatz delivered a monstrous production with heavy brasses and insane 808s for
Sharky to flex and lament on.
Sharky had this to say about Sango:
"Chiri mumoyo chiri muninga. Just sharing with you a few thoughts and having fun at the same time. Sometimes i ask myself, will i ever be good enough for you? Will you ever truly believe in me? And my dreams? Ndinozongowana peace in the love that i get from those who bother to show it. iAppreciate that. With the way our industry is set-up, it's really hard to find people who will root for you. Saka ndingorimo musango. Ndichasvika bedzi.
DJ Krimz Beatz vakaribata 808 kuita sezvinonzi rapara mhosva, ndosaka ndakarikandira mujere. (Hope you see what i did there?)"
It will be available on iTunes just about a week from today (10/09/2015).
NB: Download link for this track is only available till 1700hrs (GMT+2) 10/09/2015
