Music: @AhsaynBeatmaker ft @iAmSharkyZim - Mandipe

When two forces combine to create something magical the world comes to a stand still and that's the case with Zimbabwean musician, Ahsayn who features his fellow countryman and wordsmith, Sharky on the song Mandipe.

The single is taken from Ahsayn's debut album Algorithm. The name Mandipe is derived from the Shona word "Mandipei" which asks "What have you given me?" The jam's content zooms into Mandipe who was deemed a nobody by his community, who was constantly at the receiving end of the neighborhood's criticism. He gets taken by a mermaid to the underworld and returns with supernatural powers. The community now looks to him for solutions and saving them from social ills such as: poverty and financial strife.

The tune contains a blend of Classic RnB, accompanied by African instruments, mainly Mariba and a rap verse from Sharky.

Let your ear listen to the vivid depiction of Mandipe through the fictional content topic brought to you by musical Titans.
