Australia-based rapper ropes in Maskiri

HARARE - Australia-based Zimbabwean hip-hop artiste Ba Junior has collaborated with controversial rapper Alishias “Maskiri” Musimbe on a song titled Nzenza.

The provocative song basically unravels social issues and particularly focuses on how some young women have mastered the art of survival in these trying times through engaging in illicit sexual activities.

“The single highlights how several different young women try by all means to eke out a living by using their sexual appeal.

“We are trying to put a stop to this and hope the young generation will take heed of our warning on the dangers of such behaviour,” said Ba Junior.

According to the 29-year-old artiste, who was born Felix Rufaro Chinyerere, the track also seeks to advise young men to look beyond mere good looks when they are looking for partners.

The new track by the Mufakose-bred chanter follows another duet he did late last year with songstress Tererai Mugwadi titled Tiri Tese.

Ba Junior is finalising his debut six-track album Kwatabva Kure set for release in April this year.

“The album will feature the likes of Maskiri, Tererai and United Kingdom-based Nash Daddy.

“I am currently putting final touches on one of the tracks that will make the album — a love song that I did with Cynthia Gentle,” he said.

In an attempt to ensure that his debut album is of the highest quality, Ba Junior has roped in South Africa-based music production house G.T Beats which is working on rhythms while the final recording and production is being handled by Crank Studios in the Australian city of Perth.

The ambitious rapper, who says his music mostly dwells on social issues and everyday life and experiences, also revealed that a video of the song Vhaya, which features Maskiri, was almost complete.

“I sincerely hope that the messages contained in my music will help the world to become a better place to live in,” said Ba Junior.

“We need to put our act together and create a brighter future. The sky is the limit. I would also want to take this opportunity to thank all those who have supported me so far.”
