Once again I got the honor of interviewing a KONTROL TRIBE member Mawiza who goes by the government name Wisdom Moyo. Aged 25, he started his craft in the music industry in high school 2011 when he formed a group called Top Fellaz which later debanded in 2014. After he then joined paths with Luveve boy Calvin and together released the single titled BOSSO.
Asked about Calvin, this is what Mawiza had to say: “honestly I have never meet someone like Calvin, he is more like friend, rather a brother to me”
He then goes on to talk about how much fun it is to work with Cal Vin, saying boldly how much respect he has for the Ndebele rap king, going on and on about how his humbleness his best trait. Together with Calvin they have toured across the country in places like Harare, Gweru, Hwange and Victoria Falls among other places. As for his music Mawiza sees himself as a Kwaito Hip Hop artist whose inspiration came from the come up of artist like Kabelo, Go Boys, and Teargas among others.
Mawiza who is not only a rapper is doing his 4th year in Banking n Finance at the Bulawayo Polytechnic has this year dropped a few singles like Amangcono, Mpintsh, Can’t delela, just to mention a few. Of late he dropped Tjovo ft Jungle boy on the 11th of November which got massive love on the Zifm #new music Tuesday chats according to votes from the public. Mawiza together with KONTROL TRIBE were nominated for the Zim hip hop awards for best group which only shows the recognition they are getting for the work they are putting out there.
It’s always refreshing to chat with young talented artists from Zim. I wish Mawiza all the success in his 2017 projects and life in general. You can follow him on Twitter and Facebook to follow his musical journey.
