Polarities are the essence of a romantic dynamic between a man and woman. In pendulum-like fashion, the masculine and feminine energies can push the relationship to volatile extremes. One minute it is feelings of affection, appreciation and sweet sentiments; and then the next it is discord, spite and disdain. The encompassing sentiments are interchangeable and at times incongruent where reaching a balance is constant work. Hate You Love You by Denzyl, a Durban-based R&B singer, is a song that captures the tumultuous nature of such a relationship.
In this duet featuring songstress Tanya Morrison, the song encapsulates the highs and lows of a common theme that recurs in many relationships. The second official single by Denzyl seeks to follow the same path as his debut, titled Look Up. Look Up was playlisted across various radio stations such as RmR, Ubuthebe FM, Vibe FM, Siyathuthuka FM, All Time Radio and Mix 98.3. This single went on to claim the number 3 spot on the Zone Radio charts.
Look Up and Hate You Love You are both available on the Denzyl EP.
Denzyl is a Durban-born singer who grew up in a musical family, and was introduced to music at the tender age of five. He subsequently learnt to play the guitar in primary school and also played in his church’s band. Denzyl describes himself as a humble, open-minded and a highly fashionable person. His extremely sociable nature has led him to start an NPO called the Disabled Peoples Foundation, which offers help and encouragement to people with disabilities to live better lives.
