SUNGURA musician Peter Moyo has roped in Zimdancehall chanter Freeman on a new album titled Maricho KwaMoyo.
The album is expected in April and the HKD Boss, as Freeman is affectionately known in showbiz, features on the track Rufu. This comes as Moyo released the track Chinokanganwa Idemo last month, which is part of the forthcoming studio album to promote the project. The album is being recorded by K.O.M studios in Harare.
“I have named the album Maricho because I worked with a number of artists on the project. I am going to reveal more names of musicians I worked with in due course,” said Moyo. On the track, the musicians bemoan death and its secrecy. The musi-cians say the most painful part of death is that it does not give its victims time to bid farewell to their loved ones.
Moyo said he is using the Covid-19 national lockdown to perfect his artistic works. “As musicians we do not have an option but to polish up our works. We cannot just sit back and cry foul over the effects of the lockdown. This is the time to seriously look into our careers and make some adjustments if there is need to,” he said.
Like other countries, Zimbabwe is reeling from the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic. Meanwhile, the idea of featuring a number of musicians on an single album was popularised by the likes of gospel musician Togarepi Chivaviro on tracks such as Ebenezer, Maranatha, Mhepo Inoperekedza and Kana Wayambuka.
To date, Moyo has four studio albums under his sleeve and these are: Mushonga Mukuru (2013), Mabasa aMwari (2015), Mopao Mokonzi (2017) and Mwana WeMurozvi (2019).
