At long last, Queen Vee has decided to come to the phone; and we couldn’t be happier. She’s not just back but she’s back with (you guessed it) a band (or is it a banger?)
If we’re being honest, we were not ready for this one, but then again it is written somewhere “For she will return, and they will know not what hit them”. One of my favourite things about Queen Vee’s “Vavengi” is that it actually sounds unapologetically Zimbabwean!
This song is an entire schooling session about hustling and who better to give us the notes than an actual female version of a hustler (uhm AKA a Diva)? In fact, the message contained in this song is momentous; “Be who you are despite external forces!”
However my prognostication is that the chilled vibes will be an acquired taste for most people and if you’re anything like me you’ll find some parts rather…. superfluous. In conclusion, the jam definitely deserves appreciation because Queen Vee and Souljah Love certainly came through with this one. Vavengi will hate havo!
