Singer and songwriter Qounfuzed has had a lot of memorable experiences, but none beats collaborating with dancehall superstar Winky D.
Qounfuzed, whose unique blend of Zimdancehall, afro beats and R&B has endeared him with music fans was featured on Winky D’s track XYZ off the hotly released Eureka Eureka Album.
The singer, described the experience as awe-inspiring.
“It was a different experience, quite exciting, eye-opening, and it was also a learning curve, it’s like meeting your heroes and learning how magic works,” he recounted working with the Botso singer.
XYZ is an absolute banger of a track! The infectious beat blended with haunting lyrics, gives the listener a memorable experience.
Winky D and Qounfuzed both deliver impressive performances, with Winky D’s thought-provoking lyrics and Qounfuzed’s catchy hooks.
The song that implores listeners to move on from past relationships, is the one of only 3 songs to carry a video off the 14-track album.
Speaking to The NewsReportLive, Qounfuzed said the collaboration was an opportunity to glean from the Gaffa President.
“My first time meeting Winky D and getting to talk to him face to face I used that opportunity to ask him a lot of business and personal questions as well as getting career guidance,” he said.
“I took it as an opportunity to also share my views on music and where I wanna take it then made him share his perspectives too.”
According to Qounfuzed, the song and video took them between five to eight months to complete and during that time, the musician learnt something special.
He revealed: “I learnt that Winky D is very hardworking and he sacrifices most of his time for music and he takes it really seriously that’s what got him to the top.”
“It took more than 5 to 8 months to work on both the track and music video which was shot by Zimbabwean UK-based video director Walle Visuals.”
The Qounfuzed Winky D video starts with an infectious energy that keeps the viewer glued.
“The song will go down in the history books as one of the biggest features of my career,” said Qounfuzed.
Ndururani, as he is affectionately known by his fans, will be embarking on a tour of 8 nations scheduled for February.
