Musician Mzoe7 has penned a new Gqom track, Babes weMonthend, warning men to be wary of gold diggers who only look for them when the month ends.
He said he realised that people go over the top during the festive season hence why he penned the track.
Known for his intense energy on stage, Mzoe7 said although the track was for December, it had a crucial message.
“Talking from my personal experience, I’ve realised that at times people love us for what we have, not really for who we are. We still love those people though they love our wallets. We hope we’ll eventually find true love because as artistes, we also want to love and be loved and not to be taken for playboys or playgirls,” said Mzoe7.
Mzoe7, who is behind the hit Kwasa Kwasa and Sandra Ndebele’s runaway hit, Ingoma, is known for his diversity so it is no surprise that he is now doing Gqom, a genre that has taken the region by storm. Gqom has been popularised by Durban’s Distruction Boyz with their runaway hit Omunye.
A music video for Babes weMonthend will be dropped today during the Live in Bulawayo launch at Rainbow Hotel alongside his EP. Ten other artistes will also launch their albums.
“Represent Beats mastered the songs on the EP. Some of the songs are Calendar, Yes Sir, Fill up the Jojo and Istory Yiso.”
A snippet of the music video, released over the week, shows colourful dance moves by dance crew Snipers, who are one of the best in the business in Bulawayo.
Socialites such as Ben Chest and rapper ASAPH were featured on the video shot around the city by Fusion Media Group.
