HARARE – Upcoming gospel musician Tatenda Mahachi will begin his end-of-year tour on Friday at the Dining Point in Harare.
The 29-year-old gospel artiste will share the stage with Rumbi Zvirikuzhe in a double bill that will mark the beginning of a series of shows by Mahachi in the capital and Karoi.
Mahachi hopes to use the Dining Point concert to show Zimbabwean gospel fans that he is now one for the big stage.
“Everything is now in place and I am now waiting for the day. I will do my very best because I hate to disappoint my fans,” he said.
“Since this is going to be the start of a series of shows, I am really determined to start in high gear.”
Mahachi is by no means a gospel music rookie. He has produced three fairly successful albums which include Miyedzo (2007), Kure (2009) and Agare (2013).
The gospel musician, brother to football agent Gibson Mahachi, is particularly excited by his latest album which has spawned hits such as Ndisiye Satani and Ndibvumbamirei.
The latter, which was a collaboration with Prudence Katomeni-Mbofana, topped the Power FM Breakfast Inspiration Gospel Chart Show for six consecutive weeks.
The six-track Agare was recorded at Eternity Production where it was produced by Mc Dee except for the song Gore Rapera which was produced and recorded at Heshi Mfeshi Studios by Lazzie T.
Since he launched his music career in early 2000s, Mahachi has shared stage with a number of artistes such as Dudu Manhenga, Clare Nyakujara, Prudence Katomeni-Mbofana, Dino Mudondo, Mechanic Manyeruke, Shingisai Suluma and Albert Nyathi among others.
The musician is an entrepreneur whose companies sell cars and fuel.
