Zambian dancehall star Tbwoy rocked Zambia over the weekend with a new club banger titled ‘Quarantine’.
Interestingly, ‘Quarantine’ features Bowchase and XYZ Entertainment CEO Bobby East. The magic in the music is the Afro dancehall fusion in it.
Tbwoy with his deep dancehall voice is amplified by Bobby East’s rich Hip Hop background while Bowchase colours it all with a feel of modern hip hop sounds.
The jam is entertaining and fans have been onto it two days after it premiered on YouTube and other streaming platforms.
Eazy; a famed producer was behind the hit’s production. The new jam sparks questions on whether Bobby East was serious about quitting singing.
In an interview with Youtuber Hellen Zulu a while back, he said he had his time in the industry as a rapper and saw it fit to give space to the flesh blood who have so much zeal in the same.
“I have been rapping, this is like my tenth year now so eventually, you have to evolve and go and leave some of the other stuff for people,” he averred.
Moments after attending the funeral of young rapper Daev, Bobby East questioned the home support for Zambian artiste saying that he together with a host of other Zambian artistes cannot pride in getting support from Zambians.
He referenced the huge support Daev got during his funeral saying that if the same happened to his shows, he would have been very far but this wasn’t the case. It is for this reason that he has decided to “look into other things”.
“So much work goes in for little or no reward, in fact most times only thing you get is redicule.... I wish my boy had as many people at his concerts as he did at his funeral… My heart has been heavy for a while… Might be time to close this chapter and look to other things.”
