Zimbabwe: Fuzzy L's Music to Rock France

Zimbabwean music is surely making waves in all corners of the globe and upcoming "Afrotonic" artiste Manzul Fazilahmed known as Fuzzy L is happy to testify. Based in Braeside, Fuzzy L is floating on cloud nine after attracting the attention of renowned United Kingdom producer W. Scarlete with his debut album "Toda Kufara".

Plans are already underway to market and promote the album in France where reggae is popular with Scarlete's Centre stage Productions. "I am over the moon about this development because our local industry has great talent. Such recognition goes a long way in motivating an artiste," he said.

According to Fuzzy L, the UK production company was mostly impressed by his "Morning Come" song and they have asked him to work out a budget so that they can sponsor its video.

"Morning Come is a favourite with many because it is a touching song. When I wrote the song, it had two meanings to it. Firstly, the morning comes with the rising sun and to a father's perspective it is an opportunity for his son to rise and break away from the darkness of the night."

The artiste revealed the song was inspired by his father who motivated him to be the man he is today who works hard to provide for his own his family of two boys.

Centre Stage Productions have also advised him to add four more songs to his album before they can start marketing it in the European country. Fuzzy L has been doing music since 2004 when he has worked with local artistes.
