HOLY TEN’S CAREER
Holy Ten’s musical journey began with a twist of fate. While in school, Holy Ten noticed that some of his classmates and friends were delving into the art of beat-making.
In an attempt to join a group called the Fruit Loops and explore his passion for music, he resorted to a little white lie, claiming that he too, possessed beat-making skills.
With this fabricated expertise, he embarked on his musical endeavor while disconnecting from the internet.
Initially, Holy Ten indulged in writing lyrics and rapping purely for enjoyment.
However, his deceit caught up with him when his friend, JT, discovered the truth about his lack of beat-making abilities.
Despite this setback, JT took pity on Holy Ten and generously taught him the art of producing beats, marking a turning point in his career.
At the age of 18, Holy Ten ventured into creating his own music. While his early compositions garnered some attention, his breakthrough moment came in 2021 with the release of the track “Ndaremerwa,” catapulting him to widespread fame.
Since then, Holy Ten has continued to make waves in the music industry, sharing his talent through EPs, albums, and collaborations with notable artists such as Winky D, Qounfuzed, Anita Jackson, and many others.
HOLY TEN’S CONTROVERSIES
In 2021, there was a notable incident involving two prominent Zimbabwean artists, Enzo Ishall and Holy Ten, which sparked a public feud. Enzo Ishall, a well-known Zimdancehall artist, took to social media and proclaimed himself as the King of Zim hip hop.
Holy Ten, on the other hand, believed that he was the best in the game, leading to a heated exchange between the two.
In response to Enzo’s claim, Holy Ten released a diss track titled “Ko Makuita Sei,” targeting Enzo.
A few days later, Enzo retaliated with his own diss track called “Takuita so.” The public beef between the two artists was intense at first, but it eventually subsided when they decided to bury the hatchet. They even went on to perform together at shows, indicating that the rivalry was resolved amicably.
Moving forward to December 31, 2022, popular Zimdancehall artist Winky D launched his album titled “Eureka Eureka.” In the subsequent days of early 2023, Winky D gradually released his songs from the album.
Each song featured collaborations with various artists. Holy Ten was featured on a track called “Ibotso,” which sparked controversy.
Known for his advocacy for the girl child, Holy Ten wrote and rapped a verse for the song. However, some listeners interpreted the track as having political undertones.
Holy Ten distanced himself from the perceived political aspect of the song and claimed that he was misled by Winky D.
This caused a significant backlash on social media, with many Zimbabweans labelling Winky D as the voice of the people.
Consequently, numerous individuals unfollowed Holy Ten on social media, and other artists openly criticized him.
