KNOWN by many as a choreographer for music videos, wedding and stage dances, John Cole has decided to diversify into music.
The super flexible Cole will tomorrow officially launch his debut single, “Skoro Skoro”, at the freshly opened Red Café in Harare.
“In the four years I have been involved in mainstream showbiz, I have been learning a lot and it was during this period that the song was birthed,” said Cole.
“I am always behind the scenes and that has always given me a chance to see things from a different perspective and identify gaps in the system. I was waiting for my chance and I believe it is now as there is nobody with a big hit on the market. That will make people pay attention to the simple and sweet package I have come with.”
Cole says since the song was released on May 8, it has enjoyed good rotation on a number of local radio stations while they are in the process of getting the house track to Mzansi radio stations.
“I am really overwhelmed with the support that I have received from people all across the world. I was sceptical as to how fans would react to the track, but I must say the warm reception has motivated me to continue producing more music,” he highlighted.
On “Skoro Skoro”, Cole does not sing at all, yet he owns the intellectual rights. He says this will be his model in doing music.
“People have been asking me why I didn’t sing if “Skoro Skoro” is really is my song. My response is when DJ Stavo does a song, he does not sing. It is all about the creative process that goes into producing the track.
“I write the songs with my team and decide who to feature and the producer does the rest. On this track we featured Lee Mchoney.In future we will be working with more artistes and it will be John Cole featuring those artistes,” he explained.
A video for the song will be shot on May 25 while a second dancehall single is being brewed.
