If one had labelled Ziiza Bafana an artiste who does crazy dancehall music with lyrics laced with sexual innuendo, they must be wrong especially with this new track Bantu Baffe. In English, Bantu Baffe simply means, “our people,” making a listener believe Ziiza must have got inspired to sing this song from one of his experiences. Ziiza comes up with lyrics peppered with a rich message cautioning his fans to be wary of people who are close to them, because they are the ones who usually stab them in the back.
On this Afro Beat jam, he teams up with King Saha, who has mastered the art of making catchy choruses with his auto tuned vocals especially after successful choruses of Winner where he was featured by Gravity Omutujju and his solo Mulilwana.
Bantu Baffe is a dedication to all those wolves in sheeps’ skins. Verse after verse these two artistes tell different senarios of how haters could be after them. Saha narrates the snitches who strive to break his relationship by telling his wife false stories.
The beauty of how Ziiza’s coarse voice and Saha’s auto tune sync with the danceable beats are the highlight of this song. It’s a song that definitely should get into ones playlist as it’s a reminder of this cold world we live in.
