Upcoming Zimdancehall artists from Vainona in Harare have formed a musical movement called Zim-Corner with the aim of uniting, assisting and supporting artists from Harare North.
The movement was formed in 2013 at Pomona to give youths an opportunity to showcase their different talents.
“We decided to start this movement because other youths from high density suburbs had already started their own movements like HKD therefore I thought it was okay if youths from this side could start our own,” said Tendai Cheza better known as Chif Tindo Rasta.
Members of Zim-Corner said the movement provided them with the support they needed as some were jobless, idle and hopeless.
“When I met chief Tindo and the other crew we started comforting each other as youth since most of us are jobless,” said Munyaradzi Mupedza known as MC Changara.
“We got support, hope and comfort from Zim-Corner and we started with songs like Zvakatanga sekuseka.”
Another member Ralph said he was delighted Zim-Corner gave him the opportunity to record his music.
“When I started my musical journey it was not easy, I was at my rural home and we used phones for recording and then I came to Harare and met Chief Tindo where I had gone to record my music and he introduced me to Zim-Corner,” said Ralph.
“It was there where I started gaining experience as well as managed to work with other upcoming artists.”
Darlington Shangu said, “When it started I was there and we would come from school and run for practice.”
“Zim-Corner is a family, we do not even subscribe, you cannot subscribe to be part of a family.”
Zim-Corner artists have worked with various artists and producers like Boss T1, the late Souljah love and Passion and currently they are being helped by people like Tafadzwa E Kadzomba, and I Finton.
