ZIMBABWE is fast becoming a hub of diverse musical sound as signalled by the rise of upcoming musicians.

Although dancehall has literally taken over in major towns, the country remains a potpourri of varied sounds.

Among the new musicians is 26-year-old Hip Hop artiste Ray Watyoka popularly known as Flex J in musical circles.

Flex J made his first attempt in 2012 with his single titled Emma which unfortunately failed to get airplay on local radio while it did fairly well on United Kingdom-based online radio station Net Radio.

The artiste is currently in the studio working on a new album due for release next month.

“I am putting final touches to the new album and l am sure it will be out in July,” said Flex J.

Titled Come and Arrive, the album is a fusion of hip hop and Afro-pop sounds. Some of the tracks on the album are Tambira Kure, Don’t lie, Munozodei and Musikana Wangu.

The musician promised fans this time he would not disappear from the scene as he did with the previous release.

“Due to financial constraints l have been quiet ever since l dropped my single in 2012, but this time around l have come to stay,” he said.

One of the musician’s challenges has been lack of exposure.

Being from Marondera and a Hip Hop artiste, it has meant he would only get a few shows due to lack of venues in the Mashonaland East town.

He has only performed at Comoil and Buffalo Miller where he has shared the stage with Bob Nyabinde, Trevor Dongo and Stunner.


  1. Hie Wadzanai.I stand to be corrected but there seems to be a mistake in this article.Flex J’s real name is Felix Juru and Ray Watyoka is another guy,whom he sings with.I know these guys personally so I’m not sure which is which.Was this interview carried out in person or what?
