In a bid to give Zim dancehall artistes hope during the Covid-19 pandemic, promoter Boss Gaga has come up with a new Riddim dubbed Boss Gaga.

In an interview, Boss Gaga said the riddim is meant to unite chanters and give them hope despite being heavily affected by the Covid-19.
“This year the playing field is not even and it’s not a secret we have been affected by Covid-19.
“I have come up with this riddim to give artistes hope and restore their confidence.
“At the beginning of the year we were planning to have several gigs but all the plans were shuttered by the coronavirus.
“We have been limited to showcase the talent this year but we have decided to give our fans an early Christmas gift as a token of appreciation,” he said.
“It was not easy to come up with this project because of lockdown.
“Artistes could not manage to go to the studios due to the measures set by the responsible authorities to prevent the spread of the virus.
“Transport was a major obstacle as I forked out the transport allowances for these chanters to put voices on this project.
“It’s meant to give hope to rising artistes.”
Boss Gaga has been touring all high density suburbs donating groceries to chanters during the lockdown period.
“Everyone was affected so, I toured sharing the little I have.
