Scrip Mula: Man on a mission

HARARE - Local artistes now realise that producing music does not end with getting airplay on various radio stations.

If trends around the globe are anything to go by, then releasing music to radio stations is just a fraction of what it really means to get one’s music out there.

One such artiste, who has revamped the way he does his music, is 20-year-old Scrip Mula (pictured) who was born  Keith Takudzwa Mudambana.

The budding hip-hop artiste, who penned the hit Christopher Columbus, has released a follow-up single and video titled Inyanga.

Barely three months after releasing the video to his first single, the Harare-born rapper has wasted no time in releasing the video for his brand new single.

“Zim hip-hop is currently a war zone,” he says adding that: “The competition is intense. Artistes are definitely on another level and on a quest to really succeed. You don’t want to remain behind other artistes especially when you are still starting out like me. People will forget about you and that is not a good thing.”

“To remain in the game radio airplay is important. If you get airplay, you are guaranteed of getting recognition.

“Videos are also important. In this day and age, especially with the advent of more sophisticated media devices, you should produce high quality videos.

“Unlike in the past were people had to wait to watch videos on television only, these days, people have access to videos anywhere, anytime,” added Scrip Mula.

The latest single, Inyanga, is about wanting to be on top “like being on the Nyanga mountain” — the highest mountain in Zimbabwe.

“The song is about leading the pack and being on the peak.” he told the Daily News yesterday.

The video, shot in location, in the mountainous area in Manicaland portrays the same concept. For now, an album is not a priority for Scrip Mula and his camp. His main concern is getting his music out there.

“We are currently finalising the application processes of getting the videos onto Zambezi Magic as well as Trace Africa.

“I have two collaborations for people to look forward to coming up soon including one with Simba Tagz and am also hoping to get in the studio with Takura, though that is still in the planning phase,” said the young hip-hop artiste.
