TALENTED gospel artiste, Fungai Kangora, has lamented the lack of sponsorship as his major setback.
Kangora said life is always very difficult for artistes from the grassroots as music promoters mainly target established stars.
“Most of the time, upcoming artists are not able to buy instruments and studio bookings. This is our main worry and challenge.
“We also need music promoters to help us do live shows,” he said.
Kangora made this appeal ahead of the release of his third album titled ‘Kudya Kwemweya,’ to be launched on October 21.
The album was produced by DJ Baloe at Starlight Records.
Some of the songs are Rufu, Gore Jena, Zakeo, Vanorarama Mwari, Matare and Tungamirai Jehovah.
One of his songs, named Rufu, will have an accompanying video.
He said sometimes he dreams of a song while asleep.
“I do dream and I wake up to jot down the lyrics,” said Kangora.
“I compose in a way that touches people’s hearts.
“The major reason, which led me to be in the gospel genre, is to preach the word of God through music.”
Kangora is a Building Technology and Design teacher by profession.
He juggles between teaching and producing music.
Kangora is the third born in a family of five sons.
