QUICK SONG REVIEW: Maskiri ft Karen – Hona
Maskiri is back and his new track Hona featuring Karen has made it to the streets.
The gTbeats track is the first off an upcoming album, it is said.
The song is a lot of what Zim hip hop, a song written in the letter format, with strong bars and emotive elements, a love song with contemporary references has been missing.
The beat is a departure from the muted trap sounds which have have created a singular sound in the space at the minute.
Karen’s pipes are clear, affectional and draw you into the song effectively. In its effect, it does not pidgeon hole itself but comes with obvious purpose.
Does it serve the fan base? Probably. Remains to be seen if from the wider scale with trap the vogue, it isn’t about diminishing returns.
