Zefa and Papa Africa brings fifth riddim

ZEFA—We need to improve the quality of our dancehall music

South Africa-based dancehall artist Kingman Zefa has teamed up with DI Gyangaleee Riddim Zone and Papa Africa to bring on the market ‘Hard Punch’ riddim featuring eight artists.

Some of the artists featuring in ‘Hard Punch’ are King Magestic (Jamaica), Bieg Man (Malawi), Sir Nsonthe (Malawi), Buckam (Jamaica), Yuppie (Malawi), Congo Blunty (Malawi), Sylvania (Malawi) and Ipiana (Malawi).

Zefa said they were working hard to make sure that the riddim gets to radio stations for airing as putting on various online platforms for download.


He said he has always wanted to take his talent across but he was unable to reach out to a wider audience until Sir Nsonthe suggested to him about producing riddims which were a unique way to reach out to a variety of artists.

“I am looking forward to working with more up and coming artists who are willing to showcase their art by spreading positive messages using reggae and dancehall as a tool,” he said.

The artist added: “I am also aiming to promote ghetto artists who cannot afford to make a name in the industry.”


Zefa hailed Papa Africa for playing a big role in the riddim project.

“We need to improve the quality of our dancehall music. We can only do this when we work together and not in isolation,” he said.

Zefa then called on people in the country to support the industry by buying original works.

“There is so much that artists invest in their works and it is important for people to appreciate this work by buying original works and at the same time avoid piracy,” he said.

Zefa, as an artist has moved quite a journey to be where he is today.

In 2015, he released a debut riddim titled ‘Crazy Than Expected’.

“In this riddim, I also featured fellow teammates as well as a few artists from different corners. The response was great and this is why I am doing more of this,” he said.
