We are the loudest: Xtra Large
12 February 2018
Popular urban grooves duo, Xtra Large, says they are one of the loudest groups in the industry and have plenty to offer.
The duo of Jim “Swaggah Jim” Mangezi and Norman “Likkle N” Manwere who contributed to the rise of the genre, said they are still the ‘loudest’.
In an interview, Swaggah Jim said:
“We are the loudest musicians, it’s just that the noise is falling on deaf ears.
“As Xtra Large outfit we still have a lot to offer and we promise this year will be a good year for us.
“We are planning to hold more shows this year so that we promote our music.
“This year we are going to hold international tours as a way of restoring our glory.”
Asked about the spent force tag which is now being ascribed to them, he said:
“Vanhu vakuru havanzi vapera, vanonzi varikumboronga.
“We have a bag of tricks and so far we have only used a quarter and we are yet to utilise three quarters of the tricks so it will be too early to give us a spent force tag.
“We are artistes so we resonate daily activities that happen in the ghettos and we put them through songs.”
Similar sentiments were echoed by Likkle N.
“We are entertainers and we promise to continue delivering entertaining stuff.
“We have seen a lot in the music industry and we know what the people want.
“We are changing our style and we will drop more new songs so that we win back hearts of many,” he said.
According to Swaggah Jim they will entertain fans in Chinhoyi on Valentine’s Day as a way of showing love to the fans who have been trusting the outfit.
