BUDDING artiste Robyn Anesu Katahle Dawani, fondly known in the music circles as Tahle Wedzinza, has released a video for the song “Teleunga”.
The song is currently receiving rave reviews on Mutare’s own radio station, Diamond FM as well as trending on YouTube. The video was produced by Mutare born Simbarashe “Simba G” Gwati and was shot in Mutare’s Central Business District as well as some parts of Vumba.
The song, “Teleunga” is a Hawaiian song of prosperity where the singer expresses the vast opportunities and prosperity Manicaland possesses. The video which premièred in Mutare last week is set to put Mutare as well as Manicaland province on the spotlight.
“The support that I have been getting from people in Mutare and those who have watched my video is very encouraging. It is already on You Tube. My mother who is also my manager has been my pillar and inspiration and has taught me music from an early age,” said Tahle.
The talented vocalist ventured into music at a tender age of 15 and experimented on various genres such as Afro-house before settling for jazz.
“I am a proud grandchild of Manicaland and I feel it is my duty to represent the province through the music and tourism industry. I am looking forward to working extensively in Manicaland in future and show the world the beauty of the Eastern highlands through the arts.
Performing alongside Innocent Kufakunesu the guitarist was also a big inspiration,” she said.
Tahle rose to stardom when she featured in Military Touch Movement’s “Chekeche”. Her voice on the movement song convinced music lovers and pundits that she is a star in the making. She has also collaborated with Jah Prayzah in her debut video “Give me more”.
