About three years ago, Felix George had a brush with death. On June 10, 2017, the emerging singer, better known as Zamby, was involved in a ghastly motor accident that’s forever etched in his memory. Turning his lemons into a syrupy lemon juice, the experience has since pumped him with a new drive and a fresh outlook to life. But after several let downs and false starts in trying to break out in the industry, Zamby felt so small. Inconsequential. Intimidated. This led to a recent deep and stimulating conversation with his mum which has since reignited that drive in him. It is all this and more that he brings to bear on his cover of Roddy Rich’s highly successful single, ‘Die Young’.
Zamby’s ‘Die Young’ plays both as a victory lap as well as a manifesto of his impending success. Over the all too familiar instrumental, Zamby delievers his smooth assertive verses, declaring “I can never die young ’cause I got GOD”. He reassures himself that he’s destined for greatness and even though things might not be going as planned now, he has no choice that to press on till he gets what he craves.
