Cyn­thia Mare re­leases smash video

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - Entertainment - Robert Mukondiwa

CYN­THIA Mare would have been the perfect am­bas­sador for a tis­sue pa­per com­pany.

Her songs have al­ways elicited tears; tug­ging at the heart­strings with stories of loss and emo­tive pieces that make angels fall from the sky and saints weep.

But the weep­ing an­gel has fi­nally found her smile and can now be the face of a tooth­paste ad­ver­tise­ment – her smile is over­whelm­ing.

And noth­ing bet­ter than the fresh re­lease of her lat­est mu­sic video for the song Ngoro, whose trailer was dropped yes­ter­day.

The song, a feel good track with strong hints of mbaqanga in­flu­ences, has a video that fea­tures fast ris­ing chore­og­ra­pher and dance wiz­ard John Cole, al­beit in an el­e­ment we have never seen him in — as a ru­ral herd-boy no less!

“It’s a fun song ex­plor­ing fun themes,” ex­plains Mare. The video hav­ing J Cole jump­ing up and down and act­ing silly was part of the ex­pe­ri­ence. He’s a guy who knows how to have fun and it was just a great event and out­ing for us and noth­ing too se­ri­ous.”

Said Cole: “The ex­pe­ri­ence was cool and quirky. We said ‘let’s go out there and make mis­takes and have fun.”

e video tells a story of a ru­ral herd-boy who de­cides to try his luck ask­ing out a met­ro­pol­i­tan girl and want­ing to marry her. He then prom­ises to take her on a ride on his ngoro (scotch-cart) — zim­rob­bie.
