Rhyme Assassin is set to release his first single for 2016 with crooner Trevor Dongo (who needs no introduction as he is well-known for his tracks under the Eternity music banner). The track is titled "Nherera", which means Orphan, in the Shona language. As the cover states, it is based on a true story. Below are accounts, as told by Rhyme Assassin via his Facebook page as the inspiration behind the song.
"One of the most challenging and yet so enriching experiences I have had in the most recent past was when I successfully hosted a charity benefit concert under the auspice of Mwana Anokosha with my co-host Prometheus . This was @ the Harare children's home in December 2014. At this event I featured my single 'Nherera'. It was just so exhilarating just to see the little happy smiles on the children faces. It made all the challenges encountered during the preparatory period well worth it!
Together with my friend, Trevor Dongo, who also performed on the day, we were inspired to make this song 'Nherera' (orphan) based on the lives of some of these children...a touching and emotional tale of the hardships some of these kids have experienced as orphans...."
We all know orphans in our community, families or even childhood friends. This song reminds us of such people as it encourages a humanitarian approach to a plight that faces every African community. You may also remember Trevor Dongo's first song Ndozviita Sei? which tackled the same issue.
