ExQ Explains his Rugged Look
Popular musician ExQ has explained why he has not been keeping up with his personal grooming lately. The veteran artist, who is known for his stylish appearance, revealed the reason why his hair and beard have been unkempt while speaking with lifestyle and entertainment blogger Eyes of 263 at the National Arts Merit Awards (NAMA).
ExQ stated that the reason why he has not been cutting his hair is because he has been working on his album since last year. Although he did not offer further explanation, ExQ shared that he is tired of his current rugged look and will cut his hair once he is done with his album.
The reason why I’m not cutting my hair is because I have been working on my album since last year. So I’m gonna cut my hair once I’m done with my album. So hopefully I should be done any time soon because I am tired of looking like this.
However, the musician did not disclose the current stage of his album-making process, nor did he reveal when his new album will be released.
ExQ was celebrated at the 21st edition of the NAMA Awards held in Harare. He was honoured for his 21 years in the music industry, and many of his peers took the stage to praise him for consistently churning out hit after hit. ExQ also performed some of his hits with the support of Freeman, Tocky Vibes, and Ammara Brown, whom he had previously collaborated with.
Meanwhile, ExQ’s last full-length project was the 2021 album Verified Milestone, which featured hit songs such as “Paya Paya” and “Secure The Bag” featuring Enzo Ishall, among others.
ExQ has been a prominent figure in Zimbabwe’s music industry, particularly in the urban grooves genre, which he helped pioneer. The musician has won several awards throughout his career, including Best Male Artiste at the Zimbabwe Music Awards and Best Collaboration at the African Muzik Magazine Awards.
