[feature]VENGEmuzik mop meme by Mcpotar

Above is a meme recently posted a couple of days ago by Mcpotar on his Facebook profile. The object of ridicule in this pic is none other than VENGEmuzik (who is also featured on the Pombonoka (REMIX)).

To the best of my knowledge this all started with the Jnr Brown- Cal_Vin beef that was reignited due to We Run It. VENGEmuzik went on to do some memes, in support of Jnr. Brown. Mcpotar didn't find the memes funny (some have said the same about his Tsano jokes. This apparently when the "beef" started and VENGE started questioning Mcpotar's lyricism and influence via Facebook. This would go on and on until VENGE stated that he was making a diss track for Mcpotar, titled PaHarare

He then went on to post a snippet of his "Mcpotar diss" (which you can stream below and judge for yourselves.



Upon hearing this snippet (as I was anxious to hear this diss record, like I am with all diss records) I couldn't find a single diss in the snippet. I was kind of expecting an Ether-type of intro but alas. It was then I suspected something fishy was going on. Even in a snippet we expect at least one or two shots fired. I don't know whether or not the producer JDot was in on this or not but let's stop with the foolishness.

I then woke up the next day to see the "mop meme" and some rebuttal of some sort from VENGE and associates. Then came the Facebook Messenger screenshot below

The Truth screenshot
After seeing that it makes one wonder about many of these so-called beefs, that are used a way to piggyback one's career by the use of "dissing" someone with a larger following than them. We have seen this happen before as Kata dropped his Tehn Diamond diss shortly before his Naked Truth album and to date he says he "murdered Tehn" in a diss song that is vaguely remembered.

Personally I think that marketing beef is detrimental to both parties involved. Why pretend to have a dispute that has little or no reason. I've seen such a scenario happen before where an artist fired shots at a certain producer on Facebook but in the inboxes he confessed that it was just a ploy to get attention. This is no time to be petty, seek attention for the right reasons. Shoutout to Sharky who got an online co-sign from SA's Proverb as one of the African artists he'd like to work with.


This reminds you of that prophetic Drake line, " Pray the real live forever/ Pray the fake get exposed". 

As a Zim Hip-Hop fan and insider I say let's stick to upgrading the genre and putting out quality music while we push for international recognition and let's leave unnecessary beef. 

I hope this serves as a lesson to those who wanted to follow the same route.
