By Kudzayi Zvinavashe
As local arts genres continue making synergies,comedy powerhouse Bustop TV has engaged the services of veteran Zimdancehall producer DJ Fydale.
DJ Fydale has made hit songs for Winky D,Tocky Vibes(Mhai),Freeman,Killa T and Soul Jah Love among others.
In the latest project he is working with Bustop TV on a riddim of the same name.
The project is in the oven at Moto Republik,one of the country’s leading creative hub.
The riddim will feature 15 prominent Zimdancehall artistes along with other budding musicians.
Dj Fydale, the Kwekwe based producer is currently in the capital producing the riddim from a temporary base located at Moto Republik, which is Zimbabwe’s leading creative hub.
Speaking in an interview with Showbiz this week, Bustop co-founder Luckie Aaroni said, “We have realised Zimdancehall is communicating to a lot of youths and we want to communicate to the youths.
As a production house we are collaborating with musicians in a bid to create entertainment concurrently educate the youths out there”
Bustop Tv’s collaboration in the music scene is not a first as they have collaborated with Jah Prayzah who made a jingle that goes along with their comic skits.
Aaroni added that, “Queen Kadjah,Crystal, Bobo Fire, Ottoman have recorded so far and more musicians keep coming to the studio to record, its still early to release some of the names that are going to drop vocals on the riddim but be rest assured we will have other heavy weights coming on board”
Meanwhile, Bustop Tv crew of Gonyeti, Magirazi and new member Tinaye will get out of their comfort zone and also drop punchlines on the same riddim.
Aaroni further revealed that their deadline is the end of the month, “The production should be done by end of this month thanks to the stakeholders who have come on board in a big way to make this a success,” he said.
Showbiz also caught up with Fydale at the studio and he was optimistic of major success., “I am very happy, the sound is different compared to other riddims I have produced, it is laced with a traditional feel at the same time with a commercial dancehall feel,” he said.
