UNITED Kingdom (UK)-based award-winning rapper Tichaona Monera, aka Rhyme Assassin, is set to drop his latest single titled Beautiful featuring Bulawayo’s upcoming artiste Alaina Pullen on Monday next week.
Rhyme Assassin told Southern Eye Lifestyle in an interview from the UK that the song is a Valentine’s present to all lovers.
Valentines’ Day will be celebrated on February 14, exactly 11 days after Rhyme Assassin drops his latest tune.
“I decided to drop the single as a Valentine’s present to all. I want to encourage all those in love to show love not only on Valentine’s Day, but everyday,” he said.
“It is about two people who are in love and just expressing how they feel for each other. Love is not always chocolates and roses, it hurts sometimes and people have to work at it.”
The rapper added that a lot of “give aways” would accompany the track.
“I will be showing love to all my fans throughout the month of love by giving out great prizes to 100 lucky fans as a way of
saying happy Valentine’s,” he added.
The single, produced by Polite Sithole aka P2daoh, is the first that the rapper has released as a build up to his forthcoming album Birth of a legend to be released later this year.
“It has taken me a year working on this album and I was supposed to launch it last year, but I felt that it should be well packaged,” he said.
“The 26-track double CD album will feature songs in English, Ndebele and Shona as a way to reach to a wider audience.”
The musician scooped the 2012 Zimbabwe music awards best male artiste of the year accolade given to Zimbabweans in the Diaspora.
