UK based Zimbabwean producer Nashe aka Tinashe Murembeni, has produced a single for Nigerian superstar, Kiss Daniel.
Titled, ‘Sofa’ the single is the first to be released off Daniel’s upcoming album.
In customary Kiss Daniel style, Sofa is an upbeat, catchy melodic record perfectly weaved into an afro trap instrumental which will definitely appease the Kiss Daniel fan base and set the dance floors on fire.
Zimbo Jam caught up with Nashe who revealed that it was on social media that he hooked up with Daniel to do the track.
“Kiss and I met over social media. I was a fan of his music from before so I decided to just just send him a message on Instagram.
“I honestly didn’t know whether he would respond or not, but to my surprise, a month later he responded with his email address, and in this business once you get that opportunity you have to make sure you capitalise and that’s what I did,” recalled Nashe.
After getting the email address, Nashe had to grind hard to convince Daniel and produced 20 beats in just a week.
“I spent a week working on 20 afro beats infused with a bit of trap music in the hope that it would set me apart from all the other producers he works with, and sure enough, a few days later he asked for my number.
“He picked three tracks off the batch of tracks I had sent him.
“I couldn’t believe it, one of the tracks is the single that’s just been released and the other two tracks are going to be on his upcoming album,” explained an elated Nashe.
