ProVerb Pays Respect to Winnie Mandela, Hugh Masekela and More in His New Single ‘Heaven’

South African veteran wordsmith ProVerb still got it.

ProVerb's unmatched wordplay and storytelling shines in his latest single. Titled "Heaven," the song sees the talented MC imagine what heaven looks like.


"In my version of heaven, everyone is healed, everyone is forgiven," he says in the song's intro. "The first people to meet you are your family. Mama Winnie signs you in on the register, Stephen Hawking walks you to your seat."

What follows are verses that makes reference to many icons who have since transcended from Flabba, Mahlathini, TK, Maya Angelou, Hugh Masekela, Gugu Zulu, Nelson Mandela, Steve Jobs and a whole lot more.

And in pure ProVerb style, he finds an engaging way to weave these people's stories together in such a way you can picture his version of heaven. He makes it look so easy, your fave probably thinks they can do it, too.
