Sauti Sol member Chimano has been featured in Zimbabwean singer's remix to the song 'Easy'.
Easy, is a single in Gemma’s EP 'Pamwe' which has now taken an East African twist with Chimano on the Remix.
The songstress says that the collaboration was not even planned but rather a light bulb moment that hit her when she was in Kenya.
“It was all a creative blur. I was in Kenya, spending some time with Sauti Sol and the idea just arose to do a remix of Easy. I asked Chimano if he’d be keen and we recorded the next day, filmed on Friday and here we are”, she said.
According to Gemma the process of working with Chimano was seamless.
“Working with Chimano was such a vibe. He really is an amazing artist and such a warm person. He is just what the record needed. I am excited for everyone to hear the Easy Remix-Kenya edition.'
Chimano describes working with the singer as an honour
“Working with Gemma was really amazing, she’s so easy, so chilled, so precise and she knowswhat she wants. She is an amazing songwriter and I was honoured and felt amazing that she asked me to be on the remix of this song,” he said.
Chimano was so impressed with Gemma’s work ethic and enjoyed being part of the music video and even hinted that they might be working together again in the future.
“It’s an amazing song and shooting the video with her was so good and seeing how she organised everything togetherin such a short space of time was so wonderful,” he concluded.
The artistic chemistry between the two is evident in the visuals
