Magogoz Drop New Single

Magogoz Drop New Single

Jun 04, 2019, 01:11 PM

Formerly known as a quartet, the group Magogoz now consists of two members – Shoza (Shafa Oscar) and Makuva (Sion Mushinga). The fresh (no so new but still super) duo released a new single, 'Stay' featuring Karishma.

'Stay' is the duo's second single, released as a teaser for their upcoming album, 'Unfinished Business', which they plan to release in October. The perfect time to welcome the summer.

'Stay' is a house and Afro-pop fusion which Shoza said they decided to release the song because they want to give their fans a taste of the new genres they have added to the album.

'Stay' tells the story of staying in a romantic relationship and fighting for love instead of giving up. The song is also a plea against gender-based violence.

The quartet was previously known for dancehall and kwaito songs but its exciting to see that the duo has expanded their love for other genres and made a melting pot, good enough for new and old fans to get into.

Makuva let the NamSun know what the duo was hoping to achieve this time around:

We decided to add a few new genres such as gospel, Afro-pop, house and hip-hop to our music. A little change here and there is always good. We had fun thus far and are excited to share our new music with our fans.

Makuva said the transition from quartet to duo wasn't an easy one and that the decision by the other two members to leave and start solo careers came as a shock.

“We might not be the group that our fans know, but the music must go on. We will continue to work with Chubby Beats and Boby,” Shoza said.

Makuva said what encouraged him to keep fighting for the group was the fans. “They are still there, despite all the changes that the group went through. Even when we left Mshasho a few years back, they were there. They are still supporting us even though we are not the same as before. The messages of encouragement keep us going,” he said.

We're just lucky that the music is still the focus for the fans and we're looking forward to seeing what happens next for this inspiring duo.
