Zzero Sufuri is by far the most versatile artist of the Gengeton generation. He is constantly showing us different facets of his talents. He raps to a whole plethora of instrumentals and he doesn’t maintain one solitary flow. He is a genius at harmonizing without singing or humming.
He first came onto the scene with his 420 anthem Zimenishika. And he has once more shown his versatility with his latest jam, Life which is a reminder to celebrate every aspect of what your life entails. That means the ups as well as the lows.
This reminds me of an Arabian saying I once encountered that read, “Many sunny days soon make a desert”. And this is a powerful reminder that we need bad days in order to make life worth living.
But back to the song.
It has a decidedly Jamaican Dancehall vibe to it from the instrumentals down to his delivery and flow. Zzero Sufuri pays homage to the culture by starting his rap with a Jamaican flow and doing so in patois. He reflects on the fact that he was born and raised in the ghetto by singing along in much the same way Akon did in his own song Ghetto.
The song was produced by Kovx Wise of Zilli10ne Music. And just as the song says, we should all remember to give thanks for life.
