_Rap Orators ‘Inzwa Unzwe’ Full Album Review.
By CtO Banks
Rap Orators is a group from Torwood Redcliff Kwekwe which has four members O.S.E.E, A.K Squad 11, Milas Mac and Big Brotha Moss. Generally the guys work in pairs that is the reason why Moss and Milas release albums together.
Moss’ real name is Tawanda Michael Njini and Mila’s is Milton Tatenda Mark Mabika.
The crew was founded by O.S.E.E after he realized that his young brothers had a gift for the art so he wanted them to work together and help each other improve their lyricism.
“We started working on English projects as a crew back in 2012 until one of the producers we worked with asked us to make a Shona track for his mixtape and that is when we realised that we can do Shona projects as well. We started off with a project titled Fathers Of Rap which had hits like Nevanji and Ghetto Raparara in 2017. The nevanji track was played twice by Naboth Rizla on national television but the album did not get that much recognition due to lack of marketing thus forcing us to make another project ‘Inzwa Unzwe’ which just means Listen Hear,” said Big Bro Moss.
The projects just focuses on the day to day struggles faced by the ghetto youths and some of the steps they take towards making things better.
The executive producer is Dj Themba Remember, one of Kwekwe’s best producer. The album ‘Inzwa Unzwe’ consists of 7 tracks and was released on the 7th of September this year.
So l had to listen to the full album and going to give short reviews for each track.
Track 01 – Inzwa Unzwe feat Phreshy.
Basically this is a track seeking people’s attention and just trying to explain why people deserve to listen to the Rap Orators Crew. It trys to justify how they are different from other rap groups out there.
Track 02 – Gundamusaira.
A track explaining the current situation we are facing as young adults. We keep trying to make a decent living but somehow the economy we live in keeps killing our hopes due to lack of opportunities. We are now hopeless and we just follow those people with a little cash hoping they could make a plan for us.
Track 03 – Rugare feat. Q Rigga.
A track about hustle. This track is a about them, (the artists) appealing with good life (as if it is a person) to come and pull us out of the poverty that we are currently facing. It also tries to motivate fellow youths into trying to push for a better living even though things are tough.
Track 04 – Bad Girl
This track talks about a fine looking young lady who has lost her sense of respect for men just because she thinks she is pretty enough to find anyone she desires. So the current boyfrend is complaining about the girl’s personality and how he cant take it anymore.
Track 05 – Bobngata
This track explains how people feel and act under the influence of alcohol or weed. It focuses on how the subconcious mind will be thinking and how they see the Zim Rap Industry as it currently stands.
Track 06 – Unonakidza Kuona.
This one is about a man who is in love with a woman and how he keeps admiring her. The man also keeps on trying to understand how he ended in love with a chick that pretty.
Track 07 – Zimunodya Ndega.
The Song about the Rap Orators choosing not to be greedy with their talent. Whatever they can offer they have chosen to share it with the world so that they can understand the perfection of the things they are offering.
