Ndichafa Rinhi: One Of Souljah Love's Final Gifts To His Fans



Ndichafa rinhi? When will I die? Is a question Souljah Love asked in one of the last songs he worked on but death came before he got the answer or even had the chance to release the track. It feels like he knew something was coming his way but then only he will know. But he was no stranger to singing on his death, as he did on the song "Kana Ndafa" where he talked about how the truth of his actions would be revealed after his death. The same somber mood on Kana Ndafa is there on Ndichafa rinhi. With the latter feeling even more poignant due to it's lyrics.

Dai ndine mushonga wandakabata 

Ndaizvigadzirisa zvisati zvashata

Nhasi uno yangova bata wabata 

Kuti tikwidze makata

Vaimbondida havachandide 

Vainditerera vondidherera 

Inga ndatopera chokwadi zvandiomera 

Kusekwa nhamo nemunhu wese wakadzvokora

Kurwara ndichikosora zviri nani kuzorora 

Ishe wangu 

Ndichafa rinhiko vanhu vese zvovonditi dai afa 

Ndavatambudza dai vaikwanisa vandipisa


In light of his death and the sad story of the battles he faced in his life from losing his mother, to growing up with a cruel step parent, to being a street kid, to diabetes and his struggle with drug addiction. It wasn't an easy path for one of the greatest Zimdancehall artists to have taken up the art. This song lays bare his emotions and it's small window into how he felt moving through the world. He has been proclaimed a provincial hero and this is testament to the impact he had on the world.

Vaidherera hatizive but isu tichiri kuterera. Go well Souljah Love, Makuruwani, Sauro, Mwana waStembeni, Chibaba
