Over the weekend fans were taken done memory lane in an electric performance from Hip Hop artiste GNL Zamba. This happened at the recently concluded Tusker Malt Conversessions episode which broadened its music genre scope.
The episode that went live on Sunday evening was headlined by Ugandan hip-hop titan, Ernest Nsimbi, who is better known by his stage moniker, GNL Zamba.
GNL evoked nostalgia from the last decade when he performed hits exclusive to the album critics called one of his great works, ‘Koyi Koyi’.
Tusker Malt not only added a twist to the musical genres but to the visual experience as well.
In the GNL edition, the production team at Swangz Avenue sets the rapper up for a real time barber shop experience, with the star of the moment looking resplendent in a black and white tux.
Despite the series getting a hip-hop spin off, the online show stays true to its acoustic experience as the rapper performs his classics to a suit clad live band.
As opposed to back up vocalists, GNL enlists longtime collaborator, Tommy Race, who, clad in a suit, serves as the official hype man.
GNL’s performance was proof to as to why the Luga flow legend referred to himself as the “Greatest of All Time (G.O.A.T)” in tweets that led up to the show.
The Baboon Forest honcho kicked off his special with the head bopping ghetto anthem, ‘Koyi Koyi’ which set the tone for an evening of hip-hop, clean-cut bars and rap aggression. However, GNL had a lot more tricks up his sleeves.
The Luga flow storyteller treated his fans to dancefloor fillers such as ‘Kikankane’ and the Benon Mugumbya assisted ‘Mwana wa Baaba’. Even with the fanfare proceeding in excess, Zamba still preached and gave counsel performing socially conscious bangers such as his own rendition of Elly Wamala’s ‘Ani yali Amaanyi’ and AIDS psalm, ‘Luka’. He also did a couple of songs with Tamar Nsimbi from the Nsimbi duo.
The hip-hop conversession thickens when GNL not only claims the much-contested rap throne but disregards the competition as copycats who cannot map out their own blueprint.
The Lugaflow behemoth also silences naysayers who question his choice of marrying a white lady and choosing to stay in the states as opposed to his motherland.
GNL responds to the hard questions. GNL proves himself.
With the debate growing around who the hip hop G.O.A.T is, GNL has made his submission. No rapper has a catalogue boasting of chart toppers such as ‘Koyi koyi’, ‘Kikankane’ and ‘Ani Yali Amanyi’.
