ARTIST OF THE WEEK
THE LITTLE LYRICALLY AGGRESSIVE MONSTER
Profile By Langson Kalua Junior
Veteran urban music producer, Zephy Mr Oldies, once described Gremmer as a weapon of lyrical slaughter. And true to Zephy’s sentiments, Gremmer’s lyrical prowess is far much deeper than many average and established urban lyricists locally.
If you think Zephy was just overrating the youngster, listen to Zephy’s Pambele, an anthem that featured Mzuzu’s finest urban music gurus, and also watch UMP Mzuzu Cypher. That is when you’ll appreciate how gifted Gremmer is
He’s relatively on the younger side of life. However, belittling his studio dexterity would be the worst mistake one would ever make. Truth be told, Gremmer is one of the very few who are now controlling proceedings musically up north.
Having established his name a couple of years ago via his hit, My Woman, Gremmer has not relented. He’s been pushing harder.
So, lets’ get closer to this lyrical monster.
