…Chibaba speaks out_ I will die for the truth
POPULAR Zim dancehall chanter Saul Musaka, well known as Soul Jah Love, has released a seemingly political song titled Taneta Nenhamo juxtaposed with his life experience too as he conveyed that the country is in crisis.
The song has a powerful chorus which talk about people being fed up with poverty, and urging them to take action as the country is in dire crisis with people yearning for happiness and joy which has become a rare experience or feeling.
The lines of the chorus are as follows: Taneta nenhamo nguva yareba zvakubhowa/ Batai munhu ngaangorohwa/ Nyika yatambura toda kumbofara
The song has a flash of some personal experiences of the chanter though it is well arranged to express its message on highlighting the society problems emanating from politics.
With how the song is arranged, it is likely to be a favourite to those in politics and those who have been neglected by their friends and relatives because of their character. Taneta Nenhamo is a song that someone can play on repeat for several times.
It is an emotional song but with some witty lines and a strong message of resistance. It is simply a dynamite of a song.
Soul Jah Love also fearlessly declares that he will die for the truth nomatter what the circumstances may be. And he asked for how long shall we keep on experiencing hard times?
Had it not been of lockdown, Taneta Nenhamo would be a hit in the streets, kombis, and busy places in the CBD like Gulf. It will definitely not find its way on state controlled media. Taneta Nenhamo is a powerful song!!
