Zimbabwe & Namibian producers team up to give 'Kutongwa Kwaro' House flavour



Jah Prayzah's 'Kutonga Kwaro' has shot through the roof and with recent events in the country, it has become an anthem.

So what better way to introduce yourself than remixing what is virtually the 'song of the year'?

Local Dj/Producer Deejay Holy has done just that by releasing a house remix to the now famous track and it is already causing quite the stir with it having 10 000 hits in its first few hours online.
"Everyone was talking about JP's 'Kutonga Kwaro' so I just felt since it was the centre of attraction I could do a remix to get the people's attention.
"We used this single to introduce myself and a couple of projects that are coming soon", he said.

The Zimbabwean was however not alone in giving 'Kutonga Kwaro' a 'facelift' so to speak.
Deejay Holy enlisted the services of earstwhile 'partner in crime' and longtime friend, Namibia's own Shakoma in putting the track together.
"I did get help from my brother Shakoma from Namibia in as far as the drum arrangement and I did the mixing and mastering, and not to forget, playing the instruments as well", he added.

According to the Harare based Dj/producer, whose real name is Eutychus, the track is not only available online but he emailed it to the 'man of the moment' himself, Jah Prayzah.
"The track is already available one Youtube. As for radio, that is up to JP (Jah Prayzah) to make it official. I have emailed him the song and I am currently waiting for his responses", he said.

For Deejay Holy, his work does not stop there as he is set to unleash more material on the markert before year end. He confirmed just as much in his interview with Urban Craft magazine.
"I will be releasing 2 more singles 'Semathandweni' feat Juliet Nkomo and the big one Mr Style featuring Deejay Holy, Phakamisa Utshwala remix produced by Shakoma. Then early next year I am dropping another single 'Let Ngoma' feat Shakoma.
"Who is Shakoma ? Shakoma is a Namibian house producer we are like brothers when it come to house music", he said.

So good is the remix that music fans and critics alike cannot resist the temptation to draw comparisons with the original. You'd have to listen to it in order to make up your own mind about which version of the song is better but one thing is for sure, there's going to be feet shuffling and rumps shaking this festive season courtesy of 'Kutongwa Kwaro'.
