Marcques Draws Inspiration from Life itself on new single


"Can you help me promote my latest article?",l begged. Answering, he said, "Sorry l can't do probono anymore", l thanked him and within a minute l was ready to leave his presence. I arrived home sad, worried, dissappointed and embarrased.
To think of how I had dared to ask for such a favour from a 'gunshot' in the arts was stupid. I logged onto whatsapp and saw a link of Marcques' latest single featuring Dhuze hitmaker, Tkae Chidz with Simba Tagz on the beat called Manga Muripi off his latest album, Alyve which was released on the 2rd of August 2017.
Last time Marques worked on a song with Simba Tagz they produced magical hit in 'Break Your Heart' and last time Simba Tagz worked with Tkae Chidz they produced fireworks and l was positive that a song with these three together was a neat production, I followed the link and listened to the song,my heart melted listening to the lyrics presented. I will just take a clip and comment about it.

Manga muripi zvichinetsa muchindiseka

--People don't want to assist you when times are tough but when things are going well for you they need your assistance. You remind them of their deeds and then they say (as he puts it in the song) "Ndikazvitaura zvamaiita mobva mati mari yandipengesa".

Pandai danana nemuroyi you left me...From the first day hanzi we she wasn't good for you...hona akukuita kunge Benzi.

---Why is it that when people see you in a bad relationship they don't warn you. If you saw that what l was doing was wrong, why not correct me?
scared that l will ignore your advise?, at least try and then say,"I told you so" kana zvabvondoka.

Hanzi we were there achitangisa.

---We have heard people say that they supported you from the beginning, but they never did, they only 'supported' you in critism and scepticism.

They only pay attention when they need you.

---People are naturally like that, that's normal, I don't expect someone to be in contact with me for nothing. When one proposes love to someone its obvious he/she has seen something in that person and they believe that there might be something to be achieved from it.

Hanzi chimboyisa magitare that's enjoyment
Chimbosiya zvekitsvaga tsvaga try employment.

---People are naturally designed to negatively reinforce something that is against their wishes. When someone tells you to give up your dreams, you fume no doubt, even knowing very well that, that dream is not providing any income or the the income is low for the average standard of living. In this lyric l found myself thinking, according to Veryus' biography on him, Zorodzai Makani (Marques) was taught to play the guitar and piano by his father (so why teach someone something if you don't want them to use it for survival? I wondered....)

Pese pandai bvunza how they did it they mock
Hanzi chingoshanda zvinoita don't worry

---There is nothing frustrating than asking for strategies on how to grow your audience or improve your work and the only response you seem to be getting is "I don't have a clue" while that person has 100 000views in 1month or has been receiving many awards for his work.

Love lost, love never found

---Tkae Chidz' words are so heartbreaking because they are true because when people 'varikushushira' but you love them, it is so painful you get love sick. But imagine if you lose love for them and then they come to you,cicicici,one would feel an urge to revenge and vengance of an unloved being is like a scorching a fire.

This song reminds me of one of the key elements in music and that's Lyrics, they are what makes a song what it is, even a beat has lyrics.

The Veryus music group has released three albums namely Antithesis Light (3 March) by Gwinyai Peter Tawanda Runyowa popularily known as Verseless and Trading Hours (12 March) by Lionel Mhike aka M.I.L.E (Make It Look Easy) and the third one being Zorodzai Makani aka Marques'.

I got in contact with him to applaud him for his work because it made me feel better about myself having come to conclusion about human behaviour. l asked him what inspires his art.

"I take every inspiration as it comes, experiences in life and channel that. When l write l begin with the chorus then come up with the verses after hearing the instrumental. I love drawing from life, the reality of it is that it is a never ending source of inspiration",said the ex-Rehab Label signee.
