MUFAKOSE based studio Bingu Village Studio (BVS) is inviting Zim Dancehall artistes to record for free as a campaign against Covid-19.
The stable is launching a riddim, Ndozviripo.
BVS founder Notice “Boss Bingu” Mazura said is aimed at education people to accept and abide by the measures implemented by the Government during the lockdown period.
“We have seen it imperative to try and eradicate the coronavirus pandemic using art as it is also a powerful tool to fight the disease.
“This is the reason why we have opted to make sure that artists record for free and give a message to people out there that coronavirus is real and they should act responsibly.
“We also know that during this period people are finding it hard to make a living as the means of making deals and money have been stifled, hence that is why we have also made sure that artistes should record for free,” said Boss Bingu.
“Ndoozviripo means we have to deal with challenges we are facing now because of covid-19.
“We know people can’t afford to move around and socialise like the way they used to do before the pandemic affected us.
“So to save lives we have to adhere to the covid-19 regulations imposed by the government, therefore this is how we came up with the title of the riddim Ndozviripo,” he added.
Boss Bingu also said during recording they will enforce social distancing and high levels of hygienic practice.
“We are not going to crowd our studio place during recording as we will make sure we attend to two artists at a time on a specified period.
“The studio will be sanitised before recording and the booth will be sanitised after each artiste records.
“And we are inviting artists from all over if they can manage to come to Mufakose and Mhou street is the place to be where stars are born,” he said.
BVS studio resumed operations in 2018 and it has already worked with the likes of Guspy Warrior, Vivian, Dobba Don and others.
