AT last! She continuously insisted on doing a track with him for many years and finally songstress Qeqeshiwe “Qeqe” Mntambo has earned what she had been longing for, a collaboration with DJ Skaiva.
The song is titled Kukhona Engikuzwayo.
With the current wave of AmaPiano rocking many, DJ Skaiva who is a soul music man had to dive into AmaPiano on the instrumentals with Qeqe complementing it with enchanting lyrics of hope.
Qeqe is delighted that her dream finally came true.
“For many years I have been pushing to do a song with DJ Skaiva because he is talented and he is an attractive brand that every artiste wants to work with. I am happy that we have finally combined efforts on the song Kukhona Engikuzwayo.
“The song is a happy cry out which dashes on different obstacles that most youths are facing in realising their dreams so this is a piece that basically gives hope to youths to continue chasing their dreams for there shall be light at the end of the tunnel,” said Qeqe.
On working with Qeqe, DJ Skaiva revealed that he respected the challenge she gave him on pushing the song into reality.
“Qeqe is one of the most amazing vocalists I have worked with in my productions, and I respect her art and craft. She makes producing music so easy because she knows what has to be done, and that makes an artiste.
“I usually produce soul music but on this project I borrowed a bit of the AmaPiano sound because this is what we agreed on since the genre is trending,” said DJ Skaiva.
Qeqe is naturally an Afro Jazz artiste, lately she has been plunging into the house music world so as to appeal to the Bulawayo audience.
