#ThisIsZimbabwe, a Version of #ThisIsAmerica by Platinum Prince would Make Childish Gambino Proud!
Well, that’s if Childish can add understanding Shona to his multiple versatilities. Zimbabwean Dancehall Entertainer Platinum Prince might need to be renamed King at this rate. Notorious for filming the video to ‘Ndikafa’ with some far from shy references to reigning Zim Dancehall President, Winky D which features Platinum Prince’s dog wearing a ‘Gafa’ tee, the dog was curiously named the same, earning himself some colourful names like attention-seeker from the Ninja President’ fanbase.
What Platinum Prince refers to as entertainment, we have graded as Class A Trolling and no one is safe, from fellow Artists to Zimbabwean Political leaders.
That aside he has answered a personal prayer, making a Zim Dancehall cross-over and jumping onto the 4-week trend of customizing Childish Gambino’s ‘This Is America’ for die-hard Zimbos like myself!
This is Zimbabwe is an embodiment of recent changes and sad realities. Platinum takes us by surprise with some bars.
We appreciate that he stayed true to his element flowing in Shona all the way with basic bars and witty punchlines.
