For popular singer Zafaran, 2022 has been a good turning point, with her signing to Swangz Avenue being the most evident flash point.
Her brand-new song, Ankuba, which is literally translated as “crushing on a man,” has just been launched as an audio and video.
The song’s lyrics, as well as the audio and video production, are poetically rich. The song was written by music writer and producer Tamugi and audio produced by Grammy nominee producer Steyn. It’s crucial to keep these two names in mind since they performed an excellent job of capturing the musical qualities that best suit Zafaran, starting with her voice.
Ankuba fulfills all the criteria for the musical style that has made all of the Swangz Avenue musicians household names.
A jewel of a melody and great production from Steve Keys support the song’s sophisticated local pop style.
“Kire nankuba nga tuli babiri kire nankuba kire nankuba agawalayi ono omwana ankuba Ono omwana matala nebwotamuliisa matala ono cake yamadala etayagala matala ahhh,” reads the chorus.
Ankuba amps up Zafaran’s vocals by utilizing the occasionally gruff, girl-next-door quality to her voice that makes her unavoidable.
However, the majority of this song was written by a young generation writer who was able to recognize her talent and was produced by a man who was aware of the specific musical nuances that work for Zafaran.
Ankuba is evidence that there is still life in music if an artist is managed by a professional and kind record label.
The video was shot and directed by Aaronaire. It’s so simple and precise, with a flowing storyline of falling in love with a workmate. There are a few people in the video. The main vixen was the perfect pick for his role in the video. It was shot from National Library located on Buganda road.
The fashion was killer, Tazibone Solomon never disappoints with his magic touch when it comes to outfits.
Ankuba is now available on all streaming platforms.
