CHENGETAI MURIMWA IN GWERU
Top music producer Oskid is on cloud nine after recording renowned Congolese rhumba artiste, Koffie Olomide, who was roped in by urban groves singer Rockford ‘Roki’ Josphat, on his hit song, Patati
Patati Patata, which was recorded at Passion Java Records last month, also featured Tanzanian Bongo Flavor artist Rayvanny.
Oskid said he had to hold back tears when he saw Olomide entering the studio.
“When he (Olomide) walked into the studios, I could not believe it; I thought this would never happen. I was shocked at the same time I had to hold back my tears as I could not believe that it’s me working with one of the world’s top rhumba artists,” Oskid said during a radio interview with DJ Masty on Midlands’ hottest radio station 98.4FM Midlands.
Oskid said this has improved his CV.
“I thank God for the opportunity to work with Koffie. It’s something that I will treasure for the rest of my life,” said Oskid, born Prince Tapfuma.
Oskid said he is happy to be working with Roki again and said the team at Passion Java Records is determined to change the face of music in the country “I am learning a lot by working there,” Oskid said.
The song Patati Patata has received mixed feelings from Roki’s fans. While others think the song is brilliant, others think it was spoiled Olomide’s chanting of President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s name saying “ED Mnangagwa Number One”.
That part of the song brought a lot of debate on social media platforms.
However, the song broke internet records. Currently, it has more than 5 million views on YouTube since it was officially premiered two weeks ago.
