The high flying Hip Hop artiste dropped this banger, ‘Shisha Pipe’ in July of this year and it has been rocking the airwaves and wrecking playlists in music folders. Its sound is new, very fresh and has that laidback feel. Karizma is an established artiste celebrating the 10th anniversary of his debut album launch this year. This rapper is one of the pioneers of Zim Hip Hop across the borders as he himself is established in London, England.
The track was produced by Yung Nash and Yagi Dojo, Yagi being internationally acclaimed for his work with Delta Goodren and Iggy Azelia.
Top producer Simba Tagz said,
”Karizma is back with a new twist NGNG series, a new Audio landscape with a new fresh touch and appeal and a new lens with which to view the Karizma brand, the next releases are sure to emerge and leave their mark.”
Another Zim Hip Hop pioneer Begotten Sun praised Karizma saying,
“Though Karizma is a veteran in Zim Hip-Hop, he’s by far the most able to stay current and fresh. From is reinvention doing Zwagga Shona bars on his last project to the extreme of this new school mellow vibe on Shisha Pipe. It’s rare for someone who has been in the game so long to sound so brand new. Karizma is easily one of the best out!”
Shisha Pipe has received wide airplay across major radio stations in South Africa like Metro FM, YFM and Cliff Central. It’s always receiving rotation in radio stations around the SADC region proving once more that this guy is a force to reckon with. To put icing on the cake, Karizma dropped the video to Shisha Pipe which was directed by award winning South African duo Ofentse Mwase and Brian Makhabela. The video has received much airplay especially on South African Television. With it being number on the Zambezi Magic Zim Top 10, the video is also on high rotation on Planet Radio TV, Soweto TV, Channel O and Afropop in Australia.
