There was pomp and fanfare at the music video premiere titled ‘Blow it in The Wind’ by promising R’n’B musician Ashleigh ‘Shashl’ Moyo.
The event was graced by local socialites, friends and relatives of Shashl and officials from Universal Studios music stable where the young talent is signed.
The almost four-minute-long video was shot in South Africa on a US$6 000 budget and is expected to take the world by storm.
In an interview with H-Metro, Shashl said she was not only interested in getting local fans but also eyeing international market.
“I have been working tirelessly to come up with this video and I am happy that it came out as I expected.
“The team at Universal Studios I have been working with is amazing and they are the ones who are responsible for the distribution and production of all my music.
“We shot the video with one of the most trending cameras, the total budget for everything we used on set was $6000.
“I have no doubt that ‘Blowing on the Wind’ video matches international standards and I am hoping that I will not only attract local market but I may also be a force to reckon with internationally,” she said.
Harare businessman Genius Kadungure who was also present at the event also showered praises on Shashl as a promising musician.
“With what I have seen I think she has what it takes to put the Zimbabwean music on the map.
“Zimbabwe has a lot of talent and I believe Shashl is among the list that is why I came for the premiere,” he said.
Meanwhile, Shashl has become the first female Zimbabwean musician to be signed by Universal Music stable.
Other local musicians signed by the stable are Jah Prayzah and Selekta Base.
