Budding artists ready for global stage

Story by Tafara Chikumira

A budding Kwekwe based RnB musical outfit ‘Awesum,’ has released a video for its hit song ‘Cent Cent,’ which has taken social media by storm.

The ‘Centi Centi,’ song by the budding artists is inspired by Harare Mambos Band’s song “Itai Centi Centi,” which was mainly popularised by Paul Mukondo on one of his Sunday Radio 2 programme on Insurance back then.

The group, Awesum, which is made up of three brothers Roman, Brian and Tinotenda Masora use contemporary instruments to fuse with RnB lyrics depicting a person who has reached a dead end in life and now looks for salvation from well-wishers.

The group goes beyond begging, but rather depicts a person who is willing to have the means to production rather than just relying on handouts.

“If only all you knew that I am poor you wouldn’t be just giving me food. Instead show me where you are doing the farming and show me the hoes so that I can also do the actual farming. All my relatives have since left me am left alone. I am left with picking bones because I am poor. May you please do cent cent so that I can get out of this situation. Instead of giving me fish, may you please give me fishing rod so that I won’t come back tomorrow,” are part of the lyrics from the song.

The youthful brothers reckon theirs is an in born talent which got recognised at church early in the days as they were growing up.

“We started doing music at Sunday school. My parents were into music as well but theirs was mainly to do with church choir. As I realised that my little brothers were also gifted I decided that it was time for me to assemble them and form this incredible group. We have done so well as we have managed to share the stage with some big names in the entertainment industry like Holy Ten and Alick Macheso as we sometimes curtain raise on their shows,” said Roman.

The blending of the group’s lyrics and musical instruments is testimony that the future of the RnB genre is indeed in safe hands.
