Footballer trades soccer boots for microphone
BULAWAYO – Former footballer Cozzy “Kozile” Dube has traded his soccer boots for the microphone and has released his debut afro-jazz single, Ndidaire, which he co-produced with MacDonald Chidavaenzi at Eternity Records and Galactic Studio in Perth, Australia.
The former Lancashire Steel and Bindura United Football Club player yesterday told NewsDay Life &Style from his base in Australia that he had made a decision to try his hand in music.
“I wrote the song Ndidaire for a sister friend who was divorced by her husband simply because he was now in a better position in life and was meeting more good-looking women. My vision is to bring people together through music and to make music that speaks to the people,” he said.
“The songs also talk about how I was once rejected because I had lost my job as I prepared to come here (Australia). So through the song, I am standing up as a voice of the voiceless.”
The 31-year-old Kwekwe-bred singer said his objective was to compose music laden with clean lyrics such that both parents and children would listen to it at one gathering. Newsday
