ZIMBABWEAN lawyer-cum-music, Panganayi Hare, has collaborated with Soul Jah Love’s copycat, Beezman B, on a single titled Sadza Nemhiripiri.
In an interview with H-Metro, Mukoma Panga – as the singer is fondly known – said he was inspired by what he sees and encounters daily.
“One day I visited a friend and the wife cooked what appeared to be an appetising meal but the chillies, which were in the relish, were out of this world.
“It was like I was eating sadza and chillies without relish.
“It was hot and to make matters worse, there was neither a drink nor water,” he said.
Mukoma Panga revealed it inspired him to write a song and he always wanted to work with the late Soul Jah Love.
“I started working on this song in 2020 but only recorded it this year.
“It’s on record that I always wanted to collaborate with the late great Soul Jah Love but, unfortunately, Mwari vakatonga matongero avo.
“So, when I heard of Chipoko ChaSauro (Beezman B) I liked his style.
“It was so nice working with the young man and blending our different styles, mustudio maibvira moto, the young man has a bright future if he maintains his cool.”
He added: “On this track, I was experimenting with different sounds.
“I grew up listening to rhumba music and I also have a soft spot for dancehall music so blending three genres is something unique and I hope the fans will enjoy it,” he said.
The corporate lawyer disclosed that he was also working on Sadza Nemhiripiri visuals.
“We are currently working on the visuals for Sadza Nemhiripiri and, hopefully, in the coming week or two they will be ready.
“We don’t want a rushed project, I promise the visuals will be hot and we are working with Naxo.
“The lead guitarist Courage ‘Kedhazi’ Paraziva also played the rhythm guitar, while the bass guitar was played by Gideon Wonder and drums were played by Pieman Chinyani.
“On vocals was myself, Chipoko ChaSauro, Dispatch and my right hand man, Musaope Nkoma, did the backing vocals.
“Gideon Wonder was the engineer and Jabulani Ndlovu mastered and mixed the song,” he said.
