Born Simbarashe Darel Kasunzuma in Mahikeng in 1997, Zimbabwean-South African rapper, vocalist, producer and engineer THEBOYNAMEDSIMBA is a generational talent whose music sonically has no bounds. Scarred by his past, THEBOYNAMEDSIMBA conceives records based on issues which plague his spirit through a vast array of genres with multiple languages like his natural dialect Shona, English, Siswati and Afrikaans.
Family is based on true events in THEBOYNAMEDSIMBA’s life, as the eccentric artist honestly strokes on the canvas the pain of personal sacrifice with no avail in a romantic/marital relationship, and how this would ultimately lead to more pain in the face of acceptance that the family he envisioned would never be. This story connects itself with people in THEBOYNAMEDSIMBA’s family, as he interpolates their story into this record. Nigerian Singer, Jimivibecreator accompanies THEBOYNAMEDSIMBA on this complex yet simple outlook on family.
Opening the song, Jimivibecreator atmospheric intro sets the tone for this guitar driven hip hop song, in which THEBOYNAMEDSIMBA produced and engineered. Sonically, the song is an honest demonstration of THEBOYNAMEDSIMBA’s music, with its multi-layers’ of vocal manipulation and design, honest lyrics and trap inspired drums. Check the single out below;
