Hope Masike col­lab­o­rates with Sulu to reach wider au­di­ence

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - Entertainment -

FOR a mu­si­cian from High­field, it must be an­noy­ing for hope Masike to be re­garded as an artiste for up­mar­ket au­di­ences only.

Af­ter all, Killer T sang “hatisiye hunhu hwekughetto” in his track Takan­go­daro. Ac­cord­ing to a state­ment from the singer, she has de­cided to fuse her sound with Su­lumani Chim­betu’s Den­dera in a track ti­tled Ting­warire in or­der to ap­peal to a wider au­di­ence lo­cally.

“Hope and Sulu are great artistes who’ve achieved a lot, award win­ners whose com­bi­na­tion ush­ers in a new era into the Zimbabwe mu­si­cal arena. This duet is not only amaz­ing, but leg­endary to say the least. Real au­then­tic mu­sic that’ll be recorded in the books of his­tory,” read part of the state­ment.

“Ting­warire is about two lovers warn­ing each other against du­bi­ous char­ac­ters who pre­tend to be friends, yet they seek to de­stroy.”

The track which was re­leased on Tues­day was pro­duced by Clive Mono Mukundu at Mono­lio Stu­dios in Harare and fea­tures mbira su­per­star Ja­cob Ma­fu­leni and den­dera rhyth­mist – Solo Makore who has stood the test of time.

Lucky, a mem­ber of Hope’s man­age­ment said the collaboration was aimed at mak­ing sure the artiste who has toured half the world gets to en­dear her­self with the big­ger au­di­ences.

“She has toured ex­ten­sively, but she re­mains stuck in the up­mar­ket. Of course the up­mar­ket is an im­por­tant au­di­ence, but the num­bers that ac­tu­ally fre­quent gigs are in the ghetto so col­lab­o­rat­ing with artistes like Su­lumani should help us get that au­di­ence,” he said.

Pre­vi­ously, Hope has fused mbira with hip hop in an EP with Zimbabwe Chris­tian Hip Hop band the
