BULAWAYO-BASED Afro-pop singer and dancer Mzansi “Mzoe7” Mlauzi has said his latest song titled Umjolo the Pandemic launched on Friday is inspired by materialistic relationships that are dominating societies especially in young people.
The song Umjolo the Pandemic that has an accompanying video portrays how people are caught up in toxic relationships that are characterised by hunger for money.
Speaking to NewsDay Life & Style, Mzoe7 said he realised that most couples are going through difficulties because of material things and decided to compose the song that will be the voice of the voiceless in the society.
“I have noticed that people who are in love are going through the most maybe because of expectations from our society. You get into a relationship thinking that someone loves you without knowing that they are there for money, if they see someone better they can leave you,” he said.
“Some people love genuinely, but family and friends would come with different views of their partners until they lose interest in people they really love. The song speaks for the voiceless out there who can’t speak for themselves.”
Mzoe7 said people have appreciated the song and the consumption is growing fast as people can relate what they see in the video to their daily lifestyles.
“The versatility in the song’s lyrics includes Shona so as to cater for everyone. I am also touched on the issue of why people appreciate each other when one is dead.”
“I am working on more visuals this year and merchandise. The Mzoe7 brand is growing regardless of the hard times and I am open for partnership.”
The versatile Mzoe7 is also an actor, choreographer, creative director and has attained has so far banged four awards in the showbiz. ENDS
