Buffalo Souljah quits music

HARARE - South Africa-based Zimbabwean dancehall star Thabani“Buffalo Souljah” Ndlovu, who has won five Channel O Africa Music Video Award in the Most Gifted Ragga Dancehall category, has quit music.

Buffalo Souljah announced his decision to retire from music in a whatsapp message to his fans yesterday.

“I have finally decided to from the music game after more than a decade of hustling in this music industry,” he wrote.

“I have reached the end of my music quest.”

The Bulawayo-born Buffalo Souljah, who is well-placed to win a sixth Channel O Africa Music Video Award on November 29 in the South African City of Johannesburg, said he had decided to quit because he could no longer cope with the pressure to remain a musical force.

“I know for sure I have hurt my well-wishers and real supporters but this is something I feel I have to do (because) as artists we tend to suffer from depression trying hard to stay relevant and in the end we resort to drug abuse or even suicide so I will rather leave now before the worst has taken over me,” explained the Basawinesinger who recently released an 18-track album that features ex-Brick and Lace star Nailah “Nyla” Thornbourne.

The ragga artiste added that his last offering will be a 23-track album called The Chosen Onewhich is available on iTunes.

“I will remember you my fans, radio and Tv channels –the whole media good or bad.You made the humble Buffalo Souljah and (for) that I will forever be grateful,” he said.

“I have pretty worked with everyone from Aka to Casper but the sad part of all is that I know my best was yet to come creatively but physically, emotionally and mentally I am weak. I do not have the strength to continue pushing. It hurts so bad to leave something you have dearly loved from childhood.

“I know deep down I won’t be the same again because music is not a part of me but entirely me. Good luck to the youth that will carry the torch from here,” he said.
