Urban groover ready to rock

Rising Urban Grooves star, Emmanuel Pambai (26), known as Sarchie Mantronix by his fans, will release his 12-track album and videos in Harare next month. The jazz and reggae mix is dedicated to today’s generation.

He acknowledges that he is inspired by well-known BQ, a producer back home who works to improve the community and search for music talent. His songs feature Ndakayambuka, Number, Ndiwe and Ndinogarochema. The songs mostly talk about real life events.

“I started as an underground singer in 2000, working with Laag Productions in Kadoma, then the famous Wekare on a song called Amai Makakosha and shared the stage with Maskiri,” said Pambai.

Doing those opening sessions for accomplished artists motivated him to pursue his career. He dropped out of a Chemical Technology course at Midlands State University but is now a first year Electrical Engineering student at Pretoria University .

“I revived my music career last year since l has passion for it. At the moment my album called Wine Up 2012 is under construction using three studios: Neo, Bobby and Dobby, all in Pretoria,” said Pambai.

In his new album he features artist from different nations, among them Anton from the popular group Excel, Wekare, Miss Fifi from Burundi, Fikile from SA, Bobby Wagumbe from Nigeria, Prince Timothy from Zambia and Daddy Ish and BQ. As Urban Grooves is not popular in South Africa, Pambai wants to create and live a musical legacy for himself.

“I have received positive responses from fans when l play in clubs,” he said. Producer and Manager, Lucky BQ, told The Zimbabwean that Pambai’s music has improved tremendously and his music is now mature.
