FORMER Iyasa and Sandra Ndebele band member Bukhosi Nyathi, aka Mr Jaiva, is set to launch a CD titled Ndatorwa Mwoyo and a DVD this Saturday.
The album has eight tracks.
Mr Jaiva, who is best known for sungura music, told Southern Eye Lifestyle that this is his second album and it would be launched at Club Royal.
“This Saturday l will have a double launch of my album and DVD titled Ndatorwa Mwoyo at the same time. Ndatorwa Mwoyo is a song that talks about what happens in society everyday. It looks at what happens before one gets married when a lover would have taken one’s heart. During the launch, we will have Ndebele, who would be the guest of honour,” Nyathi said.
Mr Jaiva said Ndebele would be part of the occasion because he has worked with her for a long time and he likes to work with female artistes as a way of showing society that they have talent.
Nyathi has been in the arts industry for more than 10 years, including five years with his crew Jaiva Arts Stable.
He is a director of Bulawayo groups New Age, Ziyawa Crew and Shosholoza, among others.
Among Bulawayo groups billed to perform at the launch are Iyasa, Jaiva Arts Stable, traditional dance group Amawumbo Dance Company, and local DJs Blammie B and Charlie.
The launch is set for 8pm followed by an after-party till the wee hours of Sunday.
