Roki Speaks On Kofi Olomide's "ED Number 1" Chants In Patati Patata

Roki Speaks On Kofi Olomide's

A Zimbabwean musician, Rockford Josphat, fondly known as Roki, has spoken about “ED Number One,” chants that were made by Congolese Rhumba musician, Kofi Olomide in Patati Patata, a song they did together.

The song also features Tanzanian artiste, Rayvanny.

Roki and his colleagues attracted the wrath of some followers who accused him of campaigning for President Emmerson Dambudzo (ED) Mnangagwa. 

In a comment over the matter, Roki said he does not belong to any political party. Pindula News presents Roki’s statement:

Apologies to all those who were offended by Patati Patata.

The shout out to the President was a way of appreciating him for honoring Our Father, Our Legend Dr. Oliver ‘Tuku’ Mtukudzi & Soul Jah Love Musaka.

As a Brand & Artist Roki does not belong to any political party & the music is meant for everyone no matter which political party, race, country or tribe you belong to.

Thank you for your support.

Roki urged Zimbabweans to register to vote. The song was recorded and produced by Oskid at Passion Java Records owned by a local preacher, Passion Java who is on record campaigning for President Mnangagwa.

Apart from a few musicians such as Thomas Mapfumo, now living in the United States, Zimbabwean artistes avoid making their political allegiances known for fear of victimisation.

A stupid explanation from an equally stupid Roki. Kwana mpfana iwe, benzi remunhu. Wakafungawo here kuti muimbi anonzi Tambawoga aripi izvezvi nema "Rambai makashinga" jiggles ake. Tambawoga rikutamba nhamo kuSt Marys uko: He is languishing in poverty. Umm zvinosiririsa, bhutsu chaidzo haachina.
