Title: Been Around The World
Artist(s): Teban Cee x Tinquisha
Produced By: Aaron Dugud (GH)
Reggae, Afrobeat, and Dancehall crooner Teban Cee born Simbarashe Edigar Jacha dedicates "Been Around The World" featuring Tinquisha to his wife.
After experiencing heartbreak after heartbreak Teban Cee met the love of his life and he has put pen to paper to dedicate a beautiful serenade to her. For one who draws inspiration from life events, what he has been through, what he is going through, and what he sees happening not just to him but in his surroundings too it comes as no shock that he went to the depth of his soul to show appreciation to the one who has stuck by him no matter the circumstances.
"So in the song, I'm saying, I've been around the world and I've seen and have been with a lot of girls but no one I can compare to her. She is one in a million. We have a beautiful daughter together and we even got engaged."
"I've had terrible love life before I met her, at some point I found myself in a hospital suffering depression just because of love but now love located me, I found a person who loves and cares so much for me. Someone who doesn't even care about my status." Teban Cee
The 33-year-old Zimbabwean-born artist residing in Johannesburg, South Africa has been in the music industry for more than a decade and has featured some of the big names in the reggae dancehall scene like Gyptian (JA) on Slow Wine, Medisun (JA) on Vibesy and My Type, Peppery (JA) on They Didn't Know, Trevor Dongo (Zim) Babe Unospaka, MizDee (SA) Mek I [Love You], ShaSha (Zim) Let Me Love You, Seke Mutema (Zim) BadBoi Zimbo.
His song “My Year” produced by Kenyan Felix Kanyi was nominated for the best upcoming artiste at Mzansi Reggae Awards in 2012, he was also nominated for Best Zimdancehall Artiste in the Diaspora in 2014.
The My Year singer and owner of a recorded label "Team Vibesy Music Group" which has a few names under the stable has faced challenges in his journey in the industry but that has not deterred him from rising to the top. He plans to one day build a studio and has already been organising events with a live band called Kichaka Band and they also use a band from Boksburg AFM Church.
"It has been very difficult to be accepted at home (Zimbabwe), some say because of the language I use (English). I have performed extensively in South Africa which also saw me being nominated for Reggae Awards in "Mzansi Reggae Awards 2017" & also the best foreign-based artist "Zimdancehall Awards" 2017. Ever since I started music, I've always been writing music in English and just a few in Shona, and I have worked with the likes of Tman of Mount Zion, Chillspot Records, Augustin Quazor, Jusa Dementor".
Besides music, Teban Cee is an entrepreneur, and a director of a Transport & Logistics Company called SEJA Transport_&_Logistics.
His words of inspiration to the upcoming musicians "A dream delayed is not a dream denied. You should never give up on anything you have started of course it's not going to be easy, it always gets super dark before the sun comes up"
The song accompanied by Visuals is set to drop soon, follow Teban Cee on socials to keep updated.
