The Zimdancehall formula is the easiest of all equations to comprehend. In as much as youths have tainted this genre with dirty lyrics it is of great significance to fully acknowledge their lyrical versatility and flexibility. They are really artists more than they are Zimdancehall chanters. As usual the new school flooded the riddim and only a few veterans graced the Chillspot production notably Ras Caleb.
Contrary to the sexually provocative tracks, the same voices lead us into worship as the prominent chanters chose the gospel route. Since the game is all about entertainment one’s judgment on Zimdancehall chanters should not be influenced by the lyrics in their songs. The magate and mutasvi singer is here on Bitclub riddim with a song Mwari muriko. The same Garo rinobatwa ipapo and Panomhanya munhu hitmaker is also here on this riddim with a content rich confession.
Bazooker as well did not disappoint as he followed suit with the song Better Life. The street inspired track is a reflection of the daily burg hustles all in an effort to redeem economic chances in the economically stagnant country. The Zimdancehall artists particularly the new school have maintained the real dancehall other than commercializing their sound, something which has seen the likes of Killer T abandoning the riddims. Not saying it’s a bad thing but well.
Enzo routinely confesses how God has blessed his grind and expresses how he greatly owes the Almighty for his unlimited successes. Uncle Epatan in the same fashion reveals how God sent Fantan and Levels to give him a chance in the booth and indeed he proved to be a talented star.
The Bitclub riddim is not entirely clean and as expected the lyrical impure songs are there too. Legion wakes up without his manhood and tells us about it. Mad viper continued with his wild dissing. Master H is still sharp with his super rhymes. Nutty O our best kept secret did not disappoint with a love song colored with his patois prowess.
Hwinza is not all about Lula Lula, he just got emotionally hurt this time and the song better let me go has been by many crowned the best on the riddim, chingoma chakapinza.
Boss Pumakol had a decent delivery as well with a love song. The riddim provides a different flavor of dancehall and gives a divergent perspective on Zimdancehall .
These guys know God, have the message and can surely change lives.
We thought it can be more interesting if we share with you our top five on the riddim:
Hwinza – Better let me go
Enzo Ishall – Mwari muriko
Uncle Epatan – Mukana
Bazooker – Better life
Nutty O – Simple tingz
Enjoy the BitClub Riddim here.
