REPORT BY OWN CORRESPONDENT.
The 12-track album is set to be released in August. The group consists of three members, Lovemore Chinyama (Crazy L), Wilson Mwale (MaOne) and Nkosilathi Mulandeli (Dj Sonky), who will produce the album.
DJ Sonky has worked with Willis Wataffi before and also worked with the defunct Kwaito group, Go-Boyz.
“The album is about the beauty of Zimbabwe and Bulawayo. It is mixed with different genres, rhumba, house, urban grooves, jazz and reggae,” Chinyama said.
“There are tracks such as Ndaigara bho, Yambiro and Mkhwenyana, which has a house fusion.”
Chinyama said they used different languages, English, Ndebele, Shona and Nyanja so that they could be able to send their message to everyone.
“The entertainment industry in Bulawayo is not as good compared to other cities such as Harare, but we hope and pray that Bulawayo will receive and accept our music,” he said.
The group was formed in 2008 and before they had been working on singles. All the three members were born and grew up in Bulawayo and have been playing music solo before joining forces.
