SUNGURA artist Mark Ngwazi has released arguably his best album to date, ‘‘Nharo Nezvine Nharo’’, with his latest offering being embraced by his fans and the genre’s fraternity.

Loaded with lyrical prowess, word play, sense of humour, blending Shona and English lines and rhyming at times, which is a rare art in sungura, Mark has been consistent with this style from his previous albums.

The album,  which has the touch of Bothwell Nyamhondera, seems to have good sound and production, as most listeners have noted.

Nharo Nezvine Nharo, a decent album, addresses some important themes like friendship and talent, among others.

The well-received album carries seven tracks — Gokwe, Hwahwa, Nyaradzo Yababa, Shamwari, Upenyu, Vakadzi and Zvipo.

Nyaradzo Yababa appears to be the early favourite of many as it has the power to stir the emotions of a listener, especially to those who lost their parents during childhood.

The song has been picked by many sungura lovers from the album as their first choice.

Hwahwa is also among the songs getting high reviews from the fans.

The song is a praise piece for beer, the singer confesses his undying and selfish love for beer unapologetically ,while dropping witty lines to capture the attention of the listener.

Vakadzi is an interesting song which advocates for gender equality and urges men to respect their wives by granting them the opportunity to go to work and also contribute to the family needs.

However, for some, it is difficult to pick their best song among the seven tracks.

Songs like Upenyu, Zvipo and Shamwari, carry useful life lessons and advices in our daily experiences while Gokwe teaches people not to despise others because of where they come from. The album seems to be a neatly woven fabric from messages to instrumentals and sound.  It’s not a disappointing project and one can easily play it on repeat.

Mark now has six albums to his credit namely Zvandigumbura (2015), Gudo Muriwo (2017), Charger Yetsono (2018), Mudzimu (2019) and Chamugwedugwedu Chamatindike (2020). Nharo Nezvine Nharo (2022).
