Zee-Verdict : Vimbai Zimuto - Hapana kwaunoenda

Zee-Verdict
Share it:



Hapana kwaunoenda has been received with quite a number of opinions, views and reactions many centered on how sexual the video was. Somewhat the was a reflection of double standards and artistic rigidity amongst the audience and artists alike. It mirrored our camouflaged intolerance to the evolution of art. Well these are just my own opinions, everybody is entitled to some but I'm surprised by an audience that insatiably consume the same type of art by western artists but tag the same type of art by an African artist "abominable".

Musically we would want to measure all artists with the same yardstick right?  Then the phrase "cultural erosion" is nothing but a tattered film we occasionally use to coat hypocrisy. Before we even jump there.The video complements the lyrics in an amazing way, I wouldn't not have anything less sexual than that, after all this isn't a gospel song.

Personally I think that hapana kwaunoenda is an exceptional piece of work which desacralizes free artistic expression beyond societal ordinance.
Vimbai has gathered up the much needed guts promenaded in abominable alleys with creepy spirits of double standards, artistic rigidity and a shade of hypocrisy .

Zee-Verdict : 8.5/10
