The kwaito star who has often vowed to resuscitate the flickering kwaito genré could be catapulted into new heights in music — should his new offering continue with the momentum it has gathered a few days after its release.

The track which is receiving airplay on ZiFM follows yet another hot jam he did with Willis Watafi High than Number One which briefly shook the showbiz industry in mid-2013.

“It is my new single titled Abantwana beZim Zim featuring Stach. I released the track last week on ZiFM and it was played by Dj Gibson Ncube.

“It is receiving a great response,” the Jaiva Njengomuntu Olemali hit-maker said.

“The track is all about celebrating the beauty of Zimbabwean women. It talks about what makes a beautiful Zimbabwean girl/woman.

“The chorus is like a dialogue between me and Stach talking to each other and my response in form of a chorus is ngibona yikudla akudlayo lezinto aziphushayo.”

Produced by fast-growing Bulawayo producer Polite Sithole aka P2daoh, the track sung in typical hardcore kwaito lyrics promises to be one of the hottest 2014 music jams and appeals prominently to young music followers as it is sung in deep slang.

PoZee is one of the few local artistes who have passionately released kwaito tracks despite the fact that the genré faces stiff competition from house music which has found a ready market in Zimbabwe and neighbouring South Africa where it has its roots.

PoZee, founder of Kasi-No-Valo clothing and record label, has frequently featured on several singles released by local artistes has three albums on his sleeve – Kas-Lami and Mina leKwaito and is working on his third album Feel Good.
