Derick Majaivana releases debut album


THE son of legendary musician Lovemore Majaivana, Derick, is following the footsteps of his revered father with the scheduled release next week of his debut six-track album titled Bayamemeza.


In an interview with Southern Eye Lifestyle, Derrick said he would be launching Bayamemeza in Harare on June 18 before a second launch in Bulawayo on June 20.

“We will start in Harare where my studio is located and then come to my hometown Bulawayo at Cape to Cairo,” Majaivana

The six-track album consists of songs such as Thendele and Kunzima Kulindawo.

Bayamemeza — the title track — talks about people who are living outside the country in search of greener pastures while Thendele is a song dedicated to Highlanders Football Club and its fans.

There is another song Angeke Ngivume which encourages people never to give up in their dreams no matter the situation.

Kunzima Kulindawo talks about the plight of the people in Bulawayo in the wake of the shutting down of industries and how residents yearn for jobs and money.

The forthcoming album will also feature a remix of Umoya Wami in which the young musician’s father spoke of how he missed Bulawayo while domiciled in Harare during his heydays.

The young musician dismissed critics who have been saying that his fathers’ shoes were too big for him to fill.

“Well, let them talk, God’s time is always the perfect time. I would have loved to have it out earlier as well, but yes, delays occurred here and there, but are now history,” he said.

The 34-year-old musician, who attended Entumbane High School, started in 2003 with a group called One plus One before going solo in 2010.
