Sniper Storm strikes again

Sniper Storm

ZIMDANCEHALL chanter Donald “Sniper Storm” Chirisa, who had gone underground over the last four years, has resurfaced with a new video offering of the track, Tsvigiri Muhuchi, an Afro-pop song about a dedicated working class guy who is reluctant to go out and have fun, but decides to try it out for the first time.


The artistic and dramatic scene from the beginning of the video gives it a good appeal. The introduction shows Sniper on top of a building in Harare’s central business district doing a job as an assassin taking out a target.

The high definition video, shot in Pomona, Harare, and directed by Simba Gee, had clocked over 56 000 Youtube views, as it trended on social media yesterday.

Sniper Storm told NewsDay yesterday that the new video marks his comeback to the top of the music game.

“I think it’s a good start to what we want to achieve and were we are going even though one video or song might not do justice, but as we know it’s all up to God and the fans of the music,” he said.

“I am very happy most people who have viewed it have liked and enjoyed it and it has promoted and pushed the song much more.”

The Love Yemusoja hitmaker is one of the pioneering dancehall artistes in Zimbabwe, having ventured into music in 1999.

Sniper Storm rose to prominence with the humorous track, Gede, which enjoyed extensive airplay on radio and later released his debut album Ndakabata Mic, which announced his arrival on the scene.
