Young and ambitious Zim dancehall chanter, Chimoto – real name Tinashe Ushe – reckons he is on right track after releasing two singles that have been well received on the streets featuring Soul Jah Love and Silent Killer.
The 19-year-old has been praised by Zim dancehall fans for releasing singles that are educative and that instill moral values to the society yet entertaining at the same time.
Chimoto said he will not tire but remain focused since he reckons youths are the future.
“I am extremely excited with way people are loving my work as the say my lyrics are mature.
“The songs like Muchinjikwa and Madzibaba that featured Silent Killer and Jah Love respectively have been well appreciated because of the message they carry and no doubt the new vibe and voice on it.
“I believe, just like my name Chimoto, I will never be a flame that runs out of light.
“I want to show the young talent that Zim dancehall is capable of becoming a genre that gives hope, solace and motivation rather than being known for controversy always,” said Chimoto.
“I believe we have to show responsibility and maturity in our actions since we are the future leaders.
“It starts with us the youths. Transformation of a better society built on values and morals begins with us.
“I hope my music one day will reach many listeners because I have that strong belief that my music can speak to people in a positive way.
“I would also want to thank the big artistes who are supporting us and giving us advice on making the rights on the wrongs they did,” said the Glen Norah based chanter.
Chimoto started recording in 2017 and has done several singles.
He records with DKT Records.
