Born Erick Letha, better known as Ric Ko is one of the smoothest artists we have ever heard or discovered in Zimbabwe. Majoring in rap, he no longer boxes himself in one genre which is the new norm for many artists around the globe and explains the different sound of his latest single “Ngiyak’ khumbula” featuring Asaph Afrika and Branden Cruz.

“Ngiyak’ khumbula” Song Breakdown

Ngiyak’ khumbula” is a romantic song, a collaborative piece by hardcore rappers showcasing another side of them which is contrary to what we know of them, easing down to matters of their hearts and storytelling while giving us a little bit of their rap cadence.

Ric Ko kickstarts the song telling his lover that he misses her and is busy grinding so they can get to comfortably spend their lives together. Asaph follows up reminiscing about how his lover makes him feel and all the beautiful memorable times spent together. Branden Cruz closed off the song with the energy of a proud man in keeping his partner smitten.
