It's been over 4 decades since independence yet you can't name a single Zim artist that has garnered worldwide critical acclaim and amassed a fiercely loyal global following. Is it because of language or not wanting to make records for popular music markets, any thoughts?

None.

I know some of my fellow Zimbos are gonna hate me for this but if we are gonna be frank about it Zim's music has been too boring for SADC for a very, very long time now. If it wasn't it would dominate SADC. And if you can't be big in SADC how are you gonna be a huge artist on the continent (or in Africa)? And if you aren't a huge star on the continent how will a person in Wisconsin gonna know you exist? YouTube? Nope, I doubt it. They probably rather continue listening to Taylor Swift, Drake and etc.

It's the fact that the music is so different from what's popular globally. It's not easily marketable.
