JUZI : ITS MY REAL STORY

Kae Chaps, real name Kudakwashe Chapepa says his hit song, Juzi is about his real life story. He broke up with his long time girlfriend and she left a pink jersey at his house; each time he sees the jersey, it reminds him of the past.

“I recorded the song two weeks ago on a Friday, after being inspired by my breakup with my girlfriend whom I have dated for five months. I released it the following Tuesday and then on Wednesday she heard the song and called me, telling me that it has been on her playlist’

“We spoke for a while and she was interested and trying to act as everything was normal but I told her, I am no longer playing that.  I have moved on. I am no longer seeing her the same way as before.

“I was hurt. The song is real and what you see on the video on social media is actually me and how I felt. After we uploaded the song, the next day it was already trending on social media.

“It was already on 11 000 hits and I was shocked. I am happy how big artists are even endorsing the song.  The song is emotional and it speaks my heart. I was depressed. I had other heart-breaks before but this one was very strong as it hit me hard. I later accepted fate and started 2021 on a new note,” Kae Chaps told the Herald.

Kae Chaps has been in the music industry for about seven years as an underground musician.

“I used to work before and I remember in 2017 I went to South Africa and came back after I failed to make it there. I told my uncle that let me go back to Zimbabwe. I worked as a general hand at a pizza place, at a fast food, chicken outlet in town and as a satellite dish installer for Kwese Tv. I got depressed and quit. I started making music in 2014, I have been dropping singles. I then did my first project called “November 20” in 2018. It was inspired by an incident where I got stabbed at night coming from work, during the Kwese days. I turned that into a project. In 2020, I did an extended play which had three songs. My very first album was last year on September 25, titled “Vanga”,” he explained. He said was working on a couple of collaborations and was inspired by a lot of people.
