We first witnessed it during that Star FM interview, then it was up for pre-order it was gobbled up by Zim Hip-Hop enthusiasts and if the TechZim article is anything to go by it was sold to up to 6000 people (to date). I think it's safe to say that it's been a good year for Jnr Brown, despite the responses and shots to his preliminary We Run It single, which were released the same day Tongogara was first revealed to the world.
Recorded around the same time as the multi-award winning Syn City, Tongogara (a.k.a Real Talk) is Jnr Brown doing a social commentary as opposed to the party anthem MaDrinks and the unforgettable Mariia.
I'm not going to be repetitive and repeat what others said about it but call me The Grouch but I didn't feel that opening dialogue. I thought it would grow on me but nah. The track itself is on point and reminded me of the Jnr Brown I got to know on the 2010 album H.R.E: Kings' Rendezvous (a joint album with MC Chita). There's a radio station (name supplied) who wouldn't play it because they thought it had political connotations.
"Ukaona zvandakaona unopofomara/Ndosaka ziso riri red fanika Tongogara/"
I saw some pictures on Facebook supposedly taken from the Tongogara video set. I hope this brings us closer to release of The Morning Glory coz honestly tabhoo nekumirira. There's also talk about a Burna Boy feature on the album, which makes me excited and concerned at the same time.
This is most consistency we've seen from Breezy since 2013's The Feeling Ain't Fair. I guess he was listening to R. Peel's Where Did King Go?
