South Africa-based Zimbabwean dancehall star Buffalo Souljah has teamed up with childhood friends from Mufakose, a township in Harare, to record a video for his hit song “Svosvisvo”.
In an interview with The Herald, Buffalo stated: “Despite being based in South Africa for the better part of my life, I did not get caught up in a wave of estrangement, this is home. I thought of coming back to my hood where my life started. People in the hood understand the ‘‘svosvisvo’’ language,” said Buffalo Souljah.
“Svosvisvo” is slang for ‘‘whistle’’ among Mufakose’s youths.
Apart from this video, Buffalo is going to release “Nah fear No Man”, which features rising star Enzo Ishall.
“I have been trying to plug in a lot of artists in my music especially these upcoming youngsters. There’ll be many collaborations coming up. Its high time for Zimbabwe music to lead.” said Buffalo
“I urge our top business men to rub shoulders with the youths. Zimbabwe has some of the most talented youths in Africa. Your Wizkids, and Davidos, had financial support to be where they are. This is not a handout request but an investment and real businessman note. Nigerian music and SA hip—hop did not just pop up. All you need is to structure the business and put management with a code of ethics. We need financial power.”
