Zimbabwean Afro Hiphop Artist Mellow Creme has done a remake of the 90s classic True Love by Busi Ncube and Ilanga. Inspired and sampling the original pop classic this is an ode to Zimbabwean music and a dedication to his wife. We are living in an unpredictable time were we question everything around us including the relationships and values that used to exist in the past. True Love is laced with poetry that you can recite to your loved one be they your husband, wife, bae, sibling or son or grandparents. A song fit for a wedding it is also perfect for a goofy Sunday afternoon with those you care about.
Featuring the sweet vocals and guitar magic of Carlo Music this song was inspired by Mellow’s drive to showcase the best from Zimbabwe in an era filled with Naija and South African influences on African hiphop and pop music. Recorded by David Sengwayo at WhereItsAt Records with Carlo playing a vintage 1984 Fender to Mellow Creme’s vocals and through Busi Ncube’s blessing this is Mellow’s 2020 gift to Africa. There’s nothing like a fresh perspective of classic Zimbabwean music to remind us of our resilience and rich music culture which resonates throughout generations. This single introduces the fusion of more authentic Zimbabwean sounds in Mellow Creme’s music as he works on an 2021 album to be titled Fruits Of My Roots.
A lyric video is now on his Vevo Channel. The video is an animation of handmade paper art (quilling) telling a love story of two giraffes in the African landscape kissing through the seasons of time. The giraffe couple also features on the single’s artwork kissing in the clouds. Pregnant with interpretation we will let the fans pick what they can from this love story and see what identifies with them.
Song is available on all online streaming channels ITunes, Deezer, Soundloud, Spotify and even Tidal.
