SA-Based Model Slams Nox Over MTV Awards Rant
Zimbabweans singer Nox has come on the end of some brutal assessment of a rant by South Africa-based model Oliver Keith.
Nox went on a bit of a rant this week about the lack of Zimbabwean artists at the MTV Africa Music Awards and pretty much blamed people for imposing music on people (essentially saying Zim dancehall is imposed and is the reason why the music industry in Zimbabwe is not forward.)
Seems as if Oliver is not impressed. Here are is his words:
Dear Noxy Guni
It is with great displeasure and utter disgust that I write to you. I am gravely concerned about your behavioural patterns on Social Media. I am not sure what personality deficiency causes you to behave in that manner, but whatever it is, it has intoxicated your brain and it’s very unattractive.
To begin with, next time you decide to throw a tantrum in the form of writing, please make sure you read through your post first, or better off get one of those girls on your videos to proof read for you. For someone who has never stepped foot in the United Kingdom to open his orifice and lambast those that have been there on the virtue of merit, furthermore, going on to say ‘the UK Zimbabwean crowds will scream at anything because they miss Harare’ is a clear indication that you are a bitter soul.
Mr Guni, you are in no position to utter such statements as a singer, note how I address you as a singer not a musician, and I address you a singer on the virtue of having the ability to speak. Why? Because anyone who can speak, can sing. You will also note that I do not use profanity while addressing issues that you tried to raise, but because you lacked the capacity to research what the main issues causing Zimbabwean artists to be stagnant. Let me remind you that you once promised us (and am speaking as fan here) a collabo with Chris Brown. Do you recall the sentiments you shared with your fans that soon you shall do a song with Chris Brown? Well I guess not! But nonetheless, my point is you failed to articulate the challenges facing Zimbabwean musicians, the strategies that should be implemented, you failed to address issues such as Zimbabwean musicians cre-a-ting their own brand of music that appeals even to outsiders, thereby attracting broader listener-ship, the listener-ship that will cause even artists from all over the continent to want to partner with Zimbabwean artists. That’s what you should have addressed in your post, but instead you kept hurling insults and said the ‘f’ word more than a dozen times.
You see Noxy, in any profession, you have to learn from your travellers (travellers are basically people that have gone before you and done better), the likes of Oliver Mtukudzi, Leornard Zhakata, Aleck Macheso, Kudzai Sevenzo, Willis Watafi, Alexio Kawara, Audius Mtawarira et al (et al means and others.) These are the people you should be gathering and learning from, not discrediting their overseas trips. That was childish!
It’s such a cause for concern when all you air out is intoxicated foul mouthed language that doesn’t build the up-coming artists that look up to you. Surely as you claim that you have 15 years experience you should have at least learnt or heard about PR (Public Relations.) Perhaps I should remind you that you’re not American and you should leave Americans to do the whole ‘Fuck that shit ‘ lingo. They do it well, but you don’t! It’s not for you.
Should you decide to diss me in one of your tracks in the future, please feel free to exercise your constitutional right of freedom of expression. But while I am at it, let me also tell you that humble artists such as Alishias Musimbe, better known as Maskiri will be doing a track with Keisha White, and the song will be titled Africa, let that inspire you to dream big and implement hard work.
In conclusion, Mr Noxy, be careful how you conduct yourself in relation to the people you call your fans, especially to the young ones, you may be the only role model some will ever have.

Oh well… And he called him Noxy…
