Looking at his face one could see a young man with a story to tell, you could feel the lump in Enzo Ishall’s voice as he tried to speak.
But all he could do was quote Psalm 113 v 7, ‘He raises the poor from the dust and lifts the needy from the ash heap’
“When you hear that God raises up the poor out of the dust,
“I thank God for raising me to these levels, i thank the fans for accepting my music, i also want to thank Fantan and Level for welcoming me into the Chill Spot family.”
Enzo Ishall has been 2018’s biggest reveal and a phenomenon producing a hit with each single released.
And Coca-Cola Top 50 was his first honour in a short but promising career pocketing a cash prize of $2,500 ahead of Jah Prayzah’s Dzamutsana which earned the artist $2000.
On number three was The Reason Why by Baba Harare who walked away with $1,500
The event also honoured artists from Radio Zimbabwe Coca Cola Top 50.
