Fidel Country Boy sings against xenophobia

BY KUDZAI CHITSATSO
HARARE-based musician Fidel King, popularly known as Fidel Country Boy, says his music advocates against xenophobia as evidenced by his latest single titled Hondo Yemarudzi.

Fidel Country Boy said he was inspired to write the song by the death of a Zimbabwean, Elvis Nyati in South Africa.

“I was inspired to write this new song by the burning to death of a Zimbabwean Elvis Nyathi in South Africa and its incriminating on all of us as Africans,” he said.

“Where has ubuntu gone?”

The Tangai Bhawa hit maker said the track is not all about mourning xenophobia victims but asking each other why such things are happening.

Nyati was brutally killed in Johannesburg last month.

He was burned alive after he failed to produce a passport according to his wife who witnessed the murder.

Fidel Country Boy also shares what happened to him when he was involved in a car accident.

“Yes, l was involved in a car accident and l fractured my hand. l am using one hand now,” he said.

Fidel Country Boy rose to fame with the hit song Tangai Bhawa during lockdown after he featured live on Nash TV.

Since then he has recorded a number of singles with different producers.
