Zambia Daily Mail: Amarulah is The in Thing
NOT for the first time, award-winning singer and songwriter Roberto has hit the right note with his song Amarulah getting over 50, 000 downloads, a true testament to itspopularity.On his part, Roberto has been paying tribute in several tweets to the artistes who have featured on his album such as Cleo Ice Queen, Slap D, Zone Fam, General Ozzy and Chef 187 among others.Zone Fam and Slap D have featured on the remix of Amarulah, which despite some fans saying it is not as good as the original, has still proven popular.
“I could not wait to work with these guys. True story is Jay Rox met with me at Manda Hill and threatened that he might hack my social media accounts if he did not get to hear a remix, then met Yung Verbal who demanded for new hair spray. I feared for my life and that’s show Zone Fam jumped on the remix lol. Just Joking,” he tweeted.“True story is I always wanted a song with Zone Fam because to be honest, this is the Best Group in Zambia. I could not resist having my brothers on the song, and I think this is the first of many songs to come.
“Slap D knocked the hinges on this [Amarulah] remix in international style. This means Slap D and Ozzy are the only artistes to feature on three of my albums. Loads of respect for this brother of mine. We had planned on a song to do together and finally the remix. Big ups Mwila Musonda for hoping onto the Album! My Brother to the bone.”
Roberto has also reserved some praise for Chef 187, Cleo Ice Queen and Reekado Banks.
“Nifuna Uzibe on the features Chef 187, Kopala’s finest product. This guy has skills that can’t be measured. Salutes to Chef, This song was recorded the day Pilato was launching his album at Club Zed. Recorded at BrathaHood Studio, brother murdered the track, Hands down Chef 187,” he tweets.
He says Cleo, who features on the song Fall with Ghanaian artiste Stonebwoy “murdered” the track and “loves her skills.”
