Notice: Undefined variable: fm_appid in /var/www/wp-content/plugins/facebook-members/facebook-members.php on line 71

Huby Blakes started his music career in 2012 when he released his first seven track mixtape titled “TAKE OFF” which was a success in the Zim. hip hop Industry and earned him some recognition in the local hip hop circles. Huby is working on his first album titled “BLACK MINDED” which is set to be release mid next year. He is undeniably hardworking and very impressive – making it in hip-hop is extremely difficult – Huby marketed and distributed the mixtape in the streets as well as submitting it to Radio and TV stations single-handedly.

He has worked with producers such as Prometheus, Elton Bryce and Alexander Mutuma who is his current producer. To date, he has released three audio and three video singles: “SAY NO TO DRUGS”, “GAME RACHINJA” and “GWINDINGWI”.

The GWINDINGWI video has a different fusion, something which has not been done before in the history of Zim. hip hop; that is, mixing the hip hop culture and with Zimbabwean tradition. Gwindingwi has been received favourable responses on ZBCtv and expect to see it soon on Channel O!

The GAME RACHINJA video shows how mischievous youths can be when left home alone. This video went as far as being played on FRESHWAVE a Nigerian TV Channel and ATV a Zimbabwean online TV Channel. GAME RACHINJA has also done well on our local TV Channels like BOStv and ZBCtv.

The SAY NO TO DRUGS video was also been a success on the local TV stations’ ZBCtv and BOStv Music Charts. It was used on a Drug Abuse campaign done by ADAAZ (Anti-Drug Abuse Association of Zimbabwe) as a theme song across the country from January 2013 to December 2013.

In addition to being a rapper Huby is also a video director and an actor. He has directed his own music videos and has starred in several ZBCtv Drama series, the likes of Shaniqua’s and the Other Brother. He is also going to star on his first movie production with the Angel Arts Media titled Mona Lisa.

Huby Blakes regularly performs at shows run at The Book Café’ and participates in Open Mic sessions conducted every Mondays. Recently, he performed at the National Heritage Day which was held at the Harare National Museum of Zimbabwe. He has performed at, the AMDG Annual Schools Music Festival held at Arrupe College where he shared the stage with music guru Father Bob Nyabinde, popular urban groovers XTra Large, Leonard Mapfumo, Trevor Dongo, and prominent Jazz artistes like Alexio Kawara among others.
