Artists have always received praise for drawing inspiration from their immediate surroundings and in turn channeling that energy into their creative work. Such projects have always been known to evoke intense emotion whenever they land in the hands of a listener. However, the art of filtering the content from which to draw inspiration is, an art so subtle that many fail to master it. In as much as we relate to fuel shortages, when we think of topics that should be covered more often in music, it ain’t one of them.
If this whole song is an analogy of all the struggles we face here in Zimbabwe, then the boy sure took it too far. And the possibility that K.I.N.G Mataz might be rapping about fuel metaphorically flies out the window the moment he starts chanting about Jerry Cans, his tank being on E and EcoCash.
Fuel Up” certainly has it own charm, the song’s very catchy and is bound to do well in the thriving market of listeners not in pursuit of depth. The production is somewhat wavy and bouncy and probably the song’s most lovable feature.
Its 2020 folks and here’s a song about non-renewable energy!
