Roki’s much-anticipated new song “Patati Patata” which features Koffi Olomide and Ray Vanny is now in the streets but social media community is not impressed.
Fans were in awe when Congolese singer, Antoine Christophe Agbepa Mumba (Koffi Olomidé) and Tanzanian musician Rayvanny jetted in the country to record a collaboration with Rockford “Roki” Josphat at Passion Java Records.
However, following the release of the song today, social media critics are saying the trio could have done better considering what was at stake, as many believe this collaboration was Roki’s greatest opportunity to get back to the top again.
Some are blaming Passion Java for messing up Roki’s music career which was starting to take shape. Others are however of the view that Roki’s decision to trust Passion Java with his music career was a suicide mission.
Here are some of the views from Twitter;
Java anorevesa here? Kuputsa career yaRoki kudaro? Dai Roki aramba achitengesa huku kwake uko

That explains why they keep postponing the release of the song … Roki wanga wadzoka zvakanaka wani asi chii? Iyi ndoinonzi career suicide chaiyo

The song died before it was even heard
It is probably the most expensive music production in Zimbabwe, but because one name was mentioned in this song, yatofa yakarodha.
More importantly, it shows you how citizens hate tyranny and Corruption.

Lol. Roki didnt show up. Tried to showcase his vocal ranges in a disastrous way. The song is all over… parts he wanted to sound like diamond…like we know he can sing… a smooth vocal range would have done it

The first thing I did to day is remove Roki from my play list on YouTube.
I did report too.
