With many questioning his relevance and even tagging him as an upcoming artiste, the sheer disregard for the works and contributions of [email protected] Zamani is shocking to say the least.
Without having to totally disregard what can be considered legitimate questions being raised about Iceprince and the turn his musical journey has taken, it’s still essential to note that the worth of an artistes is in the substance of their works.
