REFRESHING SOUNDS - Remember The Name 'Estellah'

 By Tawanda Chari 

Estellah Mhenya! Remember the name. That is all she needed to say. Making her way into the music scene with her debut track Remember Me featuring JxB. Estellah. The song is a thought provoking, melodious jam that speaks deep into the dynamics of failed relationships and consequences of taking each other for granted.

Remember the name. Not many artists can be as good as Estellah on their first track let alone their first video. And we're sold. This might seem a little far-fetched, but there is a lot of potential to be great. However, that's only up to her to live up to that potential in her next songs. She has the quality, she has soul and she is a natural but we might still need a few more songs from her.

JxB came through with his rap verse. He demands we listen to more of his songs in how authoritative he is on his delivery. A huge attribute for story tellers in  hip hop is delivery and JxB seems to have that locked. Produced by Macdonald 'Macdee' Chidavaenzi of Eternity Media, the song has a yesteryear urban groove feeling to it. It's well produced, well mastered and the quality is there.

Estellah started singing around the age of 5 as she grew up around people who loved music and infused music into their daily lives. Like most successful singers, she also sang in the church choir in high school (whilst in form one). Her musical influences include Chioniso Maraire, Oliver Mutukudzi, Sade, Lauryn Hill, Jeniffer Hudson, Adelle, Bob Marley,Tupac among others. A legendary list right there.

We asked about her thoughts on the music industry in Zimbabwe and she had this to say:

"The Zimbabwean music industry is raw and with really talented individuals. So diverse but yet so beautiful in all aspects. To me its a treasure I would never trade for anything. It has helped me grow. Salute to all of the artists and everyone involved. Makes me proud to be Zimbabwean."

Trevor Dongo, Tammy Moyo, Jah Prayzah, Ammara Brown, Janet Manyowa, Poptain, Gemma are some of the artists she would want to collaborate with.

We are pretty much confident she will live up to her potential.
