MAFRIQ co-founder, Pauline Gundidza, says she feels humbled when budding artists approach her for collaborations.
Pauline opened up after collaborating with rising Afro-soul artist, Skyz, on the song Dadanaye.
Their song was released yesterday on various online platforms and YouTube.
It was recorded at Afrotonics Studios in Highfield.
Rising producer Cymplex mixed and mastered the song.
In an interview, Pauline was humbled by Skyz’s gesture.
“Growing up, it was not easy to get a collaboration with a big artist.
“In our case as Mafriq, we got our breakthrough when we recorded with Roki back in the day.
“We toured with Roki for a couple of months and that gave us exposure.
“In this case, I am willing to assist him because he is a fine artist who is focused,” she said.
Pauline has challenged top artists to uplift budding musicians.
“After this experience, I have realised that I have the potential to help others and I won’t stop.”
Skyz believes he made the right decision by engaging Pauline.
“Growing up, we looked up to the likes of Pauline and I am glad the move has worked in my favour.
“When I recorded this single, I felt at home because she assisted me in writing the song.
“We wrote it together and I learnt something.
“I would like to thank my manager, Boss Chamangwana, for making this collaboration a reality,” he said.
Born Tafadzwa Chizvinza, the multi-tasking singer is also comfortable as a dancer.
He has recorded nearly 15 singles and two albums.
Besides being talented, his biggest let-down is his failure to hold more shows due to pressing work commitments.
He, however, vowed to hold more shows for relevance’s sake with the help of his new manager.
