"Cry for the Poor" is the Boom One Records debut from Semtam and Mannex. Semtam uses this digital 45 to introduce Zimbabwean Mannex to Boom One Records, and top the world. Semtam is Krystof Koenigsmark, a Czech and a globe trotter. Semtam travels and performs throughout Europe and even Africa, thanks to soul dread Mannex, who hails from the land of Zimbabwe. Semtam and Mannex link up on this first single release from their upcoming "Optimists by Choice" album, due out summer 2013. "Cry for the Poor" introduces heartfelt lyrics of Mannex, who tells us that "to be poor is a crime, you haffe know dat inna dis here time". You can hear Mannex's cries for the poor and you can cry with him, as he motivates us to actively serve the poor. Semtam and Mannex unite to form a bridge from Europe to Africa, showing us, that especially in this age of communications, NO MAN IS AN ISLAND.
