About Mzala:

Just Bheki is part of the new wave of musicians who have incorporated maskandi-influences into their contemporary sounds. Mzala is the mid-tempo trippy single which encapsulates this movement to the tee, Starting with the string-led intro, which is subverted with the digitized instrumentation. Vocally, Just Bheki continues to showcase he clear but rasp low register. Thematically, the single tells the story of his beliefs that his love interest has lost interest in him after finding a new love interest. The single plays with the listener’s ear as the production is jovial, while the narrative is that of heartbreak.
