Shamein dazzles in Mzansi

A Durban-based Gokwe musician and dancer Shamein Chidhobhe (pictured)is making waves on the South African music scene where she is rubbing shoulders with a host of internationally-acclaimed artists.

Chidhobhe aka Shelly GK, is proving to be a force to reckon with as testified by rave reviews of her latest single Baby Nah where she features Jimmie Maleta.

Shelly GK who specialises in Afro-pop and dancehall has also done a video for Baby Nah a song that is doing well on local music charts. In Mzansi, the song is being played on Vibe 98.

GK has managed to share the stage with big local household names such as Jah Prayzah, Suluman Chimbetu and Ras Caleb during their tours down south.

She has also shared the stage with Cassper Nyovest, DJ Mshayi (Capetown) and DJ Lesoul.
She has also performed with top Jamaican artiste Jah Signal.

In an interview with the WeekendPost from her base in Durban, GK said she was pleased at the inroads she was making in the male-dominated music industry.

“I have done some collaboration with Zimbabwean hip-hop’s finest in Jimmie Maleta on the single Baby Na which has received overwhelming response from both my fans in South Africa and Zimbabwe,” she said.
Born in a remote enclave like Gokwe, GK said she could not be scaling greater heights if it was not for the support from Zimbabwean promoters who appear to favour male artistes.

“The music industry is better in South Africa because there are equal opportunities for artists.
“It’s not that rosy but I really appreciate the support I am receiving from my promoter Dot 5 entertainment,” said GK.

She paid tribute to Dot 5 music communications director Terry “The General TK” Kadhau for supporting her.
GK said she is looking forward to more collaborations with artistes from the Carribean and West Africa.
“I want to diversify and collaborate with artistes from all corners of the globe particularly Carribean and West Africa,” she said.

She bemoaned segregation by local promoters, saying they have looked down upon female artistes giving preference to already established male artistes.

Funds permitting, GK said she would like to work with more upcoming artistes in remote areas such as Gokwe where she believes there is a lot of untapped talent.

“I was born and bred in Gokwe and I am still convinced that there is talent and I would love to go back and identify talent in such areas,” said GK.

Dot 5 spokesperson Kadhau said they were working with Zimbabwean artists in the Diaspora to ensure they get recognition and space to showcase their talent in South Africa.

“GK is one of the female artistes from Zimbabwe we are currently working with.
“She has the energy and potential to hog the limelight in Mzansi. We are working hard to ensure that all female artistes receive the recognition they deserve,” said Kadhau.

GK was born on September 19, 1993 in Gokwe.

She attended Kudakwashe Primary School before proceeding to Chinhoyi High for her secondary school education.

She started her musical career in 2012 when she was in Form Two in Chinhoyi.— Bernard Chiketo
