Andy Muridzo is a versatile performer, but his chosen genre could be limiting his growth. 

Mupa Musimbe, his former teacher, who coined the moniker, Muridzo, said he “would express his excitement through whistling at school gatherings.”

The stage name Muridzo was birthed in Murehwa, his village where he grew up. And if he had lingered in the villages, he could have used his whistling to tender the flock. 

But his hooting name opened avenues for the musician. Before he was known, he sang in the church, alongside Jah Prayzah, who inspired him to start writing music. Later on, he went solo, and his chosen path has yielded mixed fortunes.

In 2013, Jay Prayzah, his mentor then, advised him not to pursue dancehall, a reggae version. Dancehall is named after Jamaican dance halls in which popular Jamaican recordings were played by local systems in the ’80s and ’90s. 

Broken Heart, 2017 single is a distinctive example of a talent that is being trodden upon. It is a voice loaded with flair and emotion, seeking to be unrestricted to be heard and appreciated, beyond. 

Only if Muridzo could surrender to his original calling, only then could he attain his full potential and purpose.

A Nelly Dean Riddim Medley in 2020, featuring Andy Muridzo, Nutty O, Seh Calaz, Celcius, and Gary Tight is another reason why the crooner should exhaust and invest his energy in dancehall, as compared to the other genres. 

By doing so, his potential is fluently expressed. Sampling Binocular reveals why he could be the next big hit, when he infuses three languages in one song, to deliver a flawless output.

As a versatile singer, his ability is captured in either vernacular or English, he is comfortable in all languages. Unlike other singers, who struggle to express themselves beyond their mother tongues, Muridzo is different, and he hits the right codes every time he infuses English in his lyrics.

During a live performance in 2017, Muridzo took the stage by storm, sending fans into a frenzy when he belted Jamaican songs by reggae musicians. 

“This is awesome, I like this, ini ndanakirwa, even if the Jamaican guys see this, they can be willing to share the stage with him lol - akapenga mface uyu,” commented one fan.

If Muridzo can inherit dancehall, a beat that is loyal and deep to his heart, he could attain greater heights. And only then, can he offload the copycat label and neglecting his own gift. Over to you Kudzai Ngwenya. 

You either remain stubborn and stay local. Or sing dancehall, or traditional beat and become global. The choice is yours. For now, there is nothing wrong with either Dherira or Chidhafudhunda. But these will confine you to the local marketplace.

This view is confirmed by one of his followers. “Andy pliz no more scandals. You have a talent that is destined for greatness. Your name should have been by now a household in Africa and across Europe.”

His latest offering Sango neDziva, a 17 track album, already branded as one of his best project to date will determine if his genre has become a household beat to challenge existing performers.
