Zimbabwe: Mr Kamera Taking African Music to Another Level

Zimbabwean music producer Tatenda Kamera also known as Mr Kamera has teamed up with Simbarashe Tagwireyi better known as Simba Tagz, a Zimbabwean born producer, singer and emcee for his second official single Netflix and Chill.

The single is a combination of Afro Beat and Sungura (Zimbabwean Guitar) with soothing vocals that will make you want to pick up the phone and call a loved one. The video which is currently viral on social media was shot in Central London while on tour in the UK.
