Kanjiva takes the top position but how in this world Mebos comes in at number 24? [2018 ZBC TV Coke Top 50]

Every year on 31 December ZBC TV puts out the top 50 videos of the year as voted by viewers. The annual show is sponsored by Coca Cola and getting the top spot is one of the biggest achievements a Zimbabwe artist can make in year. The top spot is usually rewarded with a cash prize, with last year's winner Winky pocketing around $4500.

2018's edition of the top 50 was announced yesterday with the winner announced early in the morning. Enzo Ishall's breakout hit single Kanjiva was deemed the biggest video of the year. Jah Prayzah's Dzamutsana came second with Baba Harare's The Reason Why coming in third position. Winky D's Dzika Ngirozi came in at 11. While it may be debatable that Kanjiva took the top spot ahead of The Reason Why, the biggest shock of the night is Obert Chari's Mebo coming in at a distant 24.

It's quite shocking considering that Mebo became one of the breakout songs of the year and it has also amazed over 340 000 views organically on YouTube with little publicity and marketing. Without much of the star power and visibilty that all other top artistes had, for Mebo to pull those numbers it had to go viral a testament on how good the song was. Mebo in my mind should be a contender for video of the year not a distant 24 it finds itself in. The voting demographics might have worked against Obert Chari's Mebo, a lot of urban youths might have voted more than once for their favorite songs.
