Exq..One of the last standing Urban Groovers in Zimbabwe

He has become one of the most sought-after entertainers in the country. Over the years the singer, born Enock Munhenga, has time and again reminded us of his gift in adapting and often times forcing the industry to adapt to his genius even after the urban groove genre had ceded ground to Zimdancehall.

Exq..One of the last standing Urban Groovers in Zimbabwe

For a man who started his musical career in the new millennium, when urban grooves was a new genre on Zimbabwe’s music scene, ExQ has no doubt remained the last man standing after many of his contemporaries fell into oblivion. From the days he emerged on the Zimbabwean music scene back in the early 2000s with the hit track “Musalala”, he has become a darling of many.

He has become one of the most sought-after entertainers in the country. Over the years the singer, born Enock Munhenga, has time and again reminded us of his gift in adapting and often times forcing the industry to adapt to his genius even after the urban groove genre had ceded ground to Zimdancehall.

The "Tsvigiri" hitmaker has reinvented himself to become one of the finest rappers on the showbiz scene.His work and success justifies why even after the era of the urban grooves movement, he remains relevant and vibrant.The laid back musician has managed to stay consistent for almost two decades, emphatically proving his staying power and dominance by scooping multiple awards.

This is how Exq has managed to remain relevant in the ever-changing music scene.

He evolved!
Music and trends evolves and so should artists if they want to remain relavant. After the fall of Urban Grooves, Exq went on to reinvent himself and continued with music, taking notes from the news trends that were introduced. This seperated him from the rest of urban groovers who kept on trying to push the genre even though it was over.

Collaborations.
Apart from his solo projects, ExQ has collaborated with an array of artistes, among them Roki, Tererai Mugwadi, Freeman, Jah Prayzah, Ti Gonzi and Ammara Brown. The secret to thrive in the music business is working with artists of the moment so that you remain relavant. ExQ has also worked with artists from across the continent.

Consistence.
Like I have already mentioned, Exq is one artist who kept on pushing and releasing new projects. This has helped him sustain his fanbase as well as expand it. 

To date, Exq has five albums under his sleeve, namely Exquisite a 2005 production, Love is My Religion (2007), Grown and Sexy(2008), Mr Urban Grooves (2012) and Tseu Tseu (2018)
