Zambia based gospel musician Tracy Chimuka-Jena says she will drop more music to strengthen hearts of believers during these trying times of Covid-19 pandemic.
Mai Chimuka, as she is fondly known by her legion of fans, said her heart bleeds for people who are being affected by Covid-19.
“I continue to pray to God to save us from this wrath, this disease Covid-19.
“I encourage everyone particularly mothers to constantly remind family members that Covid-19 is real, never neglect to mask up, practice social distancing, sanitise and steam all the time.
“My deepest condolences to all who lost their beloved ones to Covid-19 may God comfort them all,” she said.
The Taropafadzwa singer vowed to continue producing music which shape the society and uplift hearts of believers.
“I am a Zimbabwean artiste who is based in Lusaka,Zambia and I promise to continue dropping songs which shape our society.
“I miss the echo of singing and praising in my own language.
“Food wise I miss Things, candy cake, maputi, pork pie and mashmallow which are found in Zimbabwe,” she said.
“Within two weeks I will drop a worship hymn as we wait for a single titled Awesome Yahweh due for release soon.
“The hymn Mwari muri zuva redu, I am encouraging people to worship God and remind each other not to give up our hope during this Covid-19 era.
“I repeated the verse three times that says Mwari muri nhowo yedu, hatidzitye mhandu dzedu, dzose dzinokundwa nemi, tigofamba nokufara.
“Only God is our shield, one day it shall be over tigofamba nokufara.”
Mai Chimuka told this publication that her upcoming song Awesome Yahweh comfort people who are mourning and strengthen their faith.
“Awesome Yahweh is a song of praise. I penned the song after realising that during this pandemic era one way or the other we have lost family members, workmates, neighbors and friends.
“The song encourages people never to stop worshiping and praising God despite all the pain we are suffering.
“I lift up my hand and shout pain or no pain I worship you besides Covid-19 that seems to be delaying a lot due to some facilities being closed like studios and video shooting sites,” she said.
The song was produced by Sabastian and Blessing Mchenga.
The accompanying video was shot by Kelvin Mbewe and Mathews Nshindano.
To date she had four albums to he her credit namely Hosanna, Taropafadzwa, I can Stand this Storm and Don’t Vhunduka.
She also has a single Ndonamatira Nyika which penetrated well in the music market.
