GIFTED Mutare chanter, Tony D, together with his close buddies — I-Finton and Young P — left revellers clamouring for more when they took to the stage at Mutare's Pavilion last Saturday.
The trio was part of the cast in an entertaining show in which they shared the stage with man-of-the-moment Nox of the Ndinonyara fame.
Tony D, whose latest duet with I-Finton, Changu Chimoko is receiving rave reviews on local radio stations, is also embarking on a video project for the popular song.
Changu Chimoko is being played by almost all local radio stations and has been received well in a number of night spots especially at Harare's premier entertainment joint - Red Fox.
Robert Tondoya, better known in local dancehall music circles by his trade name - Tony D - confirmed to The Weekender that they shot part of the video for the track which is contained on the album - Reverse Gear.
Tony D recently found a new home at the popular record label, Tazoita Cash and will also be working with the record label in the production of the video together with his mates - I-Finton and Young P.
"Yes, we shot part of the video for the track - Changu Chimoko during the show at the Pavillion here in Mutare on Saturday. There are a number of tracks that we could have priorotised on the album, but it seems people have fallen in love with Changu Chimoko, thus we felt it will only be proper to make a video on that particular track.
"A considerable part of it was done at the Pavillion where we had a good outing with I-Finton , Young P," he said.
Tony D released his debut album with Baseline Studios, but could not resist lure of youthful, exceptionally talented and charismatic producer, Dr Clarence of Tazoita Cash.
Dr Clarence, who is in his early 20s, gained popularity over the years as he assisted many urban grooves artists but made his big break after the successful production of Stunner and Baba Shupi's hit, Godo.
With Dr Clarence, Tony D and I-Finton worked on the album, Reverse Gear, which contains tracks such as title track, Reverse Gear, Nguva Yasvika and Never Doubt. Laden with scintillating tunes that impart sound advice to the youth, in Nguva Yasvika, the artiste makes a bold statement about his intentions to take his career to a higher level.
In Nguva Yasvika, Tony D simply implores dancehall music fans and the general public to take him and his colleagues seriously.
In the song, Never Doubt, the artiste bemoans the deliberate ill-treatment of ladies at the hands of unprincipled and immoral men both in love affairs as well as in the public arena.
