Check out the Official Music Video for ‘Intimate War’ by Dimitri & The Scarecrow
Dimitri & The Scarecrow is a Zimbabwean Hip-Hop musical concept created by Dimitri D. Kwenda (Rapper, Songwriter, Producer, Poet and Singer) migrating through different cities in Africa. It is the juxtaposition of African Suburbia and it’s Scarecrow – The faceless bodies which are the fodder of human iniquity. With an introspective vulnerability applied in the approach toward avarice, lust, pride, ignorance, flippancy and lies, Dimitri & The Scarecrow churns out perspectives base on observation and analysis. The concept born in 2008 is shadowed by years of exposure to the Hip-Hop Culture from the age of 10 thanks to a primary school friend. Dimitri & The Scarecrow has been active on the African Hip-Hop scene since 2012 having its beginning at the now closed Book Cafe in Harare.
Dimitri & The Scarecrow has since released two 7 track EPs and a couple of singles with major performance credits/appearances at The Afrikan Hip-Hop Caravan, Grahams Town Counter Festival, Harare International Festival of The Arts, Shoko Festival and intimate venues in Dublin, Kampala & Cape Town. The video for the single “Intimate War” which was done in collaboration with Mwami Anim8 (Edwin Senkumba) in late 2018 was an official selection for the November edition of the Around International Film Festival (ARFF) Paris Edition in the month of November.
