It is a dream come true for two young men Zibusiso Tshuma better known as Zie the Artist and his friend Kuda Kay from Gwanda who came second in the national Chimurenga Music Competition walking away with USD 1000, a Car and a video shoot for a song which will be included on the Chimurenga music album.
The two young men who have a great passion for hip hop music joined the competition which was centered on reviving and reminding the youth about the liberation struggle through music that was popular during those times.
Contestants were tasked to remix and remake old Chimurenga music into modern genres.
Battling it out against 700 other artistes who entered the competition the duo remixed the song titled “Zimbabwe yakauya nehondo” by Chitungwiza Mbira Unit into a hip hop song.
” We are humbled to have won the competition considering the number of people we were competing against . This is a milestone for us we did not think for once that we could win . We thank all those who voted for us and showed us their support during the competitions.”
