GOSPEL musician and entrepreneur, Jerdan Paradise, is at a loss for words after his latest album ‘Kudenga Zvarongwa’ was auctioned for US$27000.

It was recently launched at the Anglican Cathedral in the Harare Central Business District.

Paradise, who is also a music teacher, said businessman Scott Sakupwanya shocked him when he offered US$5000 for a copy of the album.

Black empowerment gurus – Mike Chimombe and Paul Tungwarara – each purchased the album for US$5000.

Socialite Fally Junior offered US$U$2000, leaving Paradise US$27 000 richer in one night.

In an interview with H-Metro, Paradise believes the floodgates of success are now opening for him.

“I am overwhelmed by the support I got from the business community who graced my album launch and made high bids of up to Us$27K.

“To be honest, I  see the hand of the Lord because the people who came like Scott Sakupwanya, Tungwarara, Aphia Nyasha, Fally Junior and Mike Chimombe made my day.

“Their support was overwhelming and I can’t thank them enough for all they did on my album launch,” he said.

The 29-year-old, whose affairs are run by Medlyn Mugovera, said:

“My vision as an artist is to go international and sing something with substance that can touch the hearts of many.

“As a preacher’s son, I also want to turn many souls to God and give them hope during such trying times.

“I have already begun that mission.”
