Gospel hip-hop group Man in Christ (MIC) is scheduled to launch a debut album Rebuild the City at Life Spring Church on December 6.
The 13-track album was recorded at Bulawayo’s Face the Music studios.
Speaking to Woza Weekend in an interview, Billman Dube, one of the group members, said through the album the group wants to influence people to play their part in making their communities a better places for others and the generation to follow.
“We believe we are God’s ambassadors and our music must generate change in society. We are hoping through the album Bulawayo will be a better city and whoever listens to the tracks will be driven to start change in the own society,” he said.
The album consists of tracks such as Don’t Worry which is dedicated to everyone who needs hope and assurance. The open title track Rebuild the City is a plea for people to try and rebuild their communities.
“One of the most forgotten truths in the middle of troubles is that God still has a plan and a purpose for his children, whether you understand the situation or not you should not be anxious, but by prayer and supplication make your request known to God,” Dube said.
The all-male group known for the hit single Let It Bang which made waves on Bulawayo Top 10 chats early this year, is made up of Tawanda Denga, aka T 1nda, Billman Dube Casper Mapurisa aka Tha Cypha, Tinashe, aka Luminous.
The group has own home-grown offerings such as Carry the Cross and Uzenza bani.
In September they were part of acts lined up for the Intwasa Arts Festival KoBulawayo official opening night.
The group has launched a tour around Bulawayo dubbed Rebuild the City where they preach the gospel and minister at schools, homes and churches.
