After enticing fans with the chart topping hit-Mainini, 8L is back again with killer visuals for his single Katarina.
The track is a dedication to the late talented dancer, actress and musician Elizabeth “Katarina” Taderera.
The Afro-dance track celebrates the beauty of the African women and traditional dances such as Kongonya, which is exhibited in the video which was directed by Vusa Blaqs.
In the video 8L is dressed like a boss mirroring Mukadota’s image whilst beautiful women stunt their stuff for the unflustered gangster boss. Mukadota is credited for Katarina’s rise to prominence.
“I view Katarina as our own Zimbabwean diva, our own version of Beyonce. She had everything- style, confidence, energy, stamina and the looks,” 8L said.
Katarina was one of the most popular female musicians in the country and widely regarded as the best female dancer during her time with legendary comedian and singer, Safirio Madzikatire popularly known as Mukadota and the Sea Cottage Sisters.
