Gospel musicians Mathias Mhere and Blessing Shumba have finally joined forces in the song titled Driver Weupenyu.
The song will hit the market next week.
It’s their first collaboration since they ventured into music for more than a decade now.
In an interview, Mhere said they have recorded a song meant to strengthen the grip of the genre and also hearts of believers in these trying times.
“I have done a song with Shumba and it will hit the market next week.
“It’s our first collaboration ever.
“The song seek to strengthen our gospel genre.
“The song talks about God’s way of doing things.
“He is our protector and to him whatever happens in life there is a reason,” he said.
Asked if there is still bad blood between the entertainers who were once involved in a tiff where their producer was fingered.
“People say a lot of things and some of the things they are fabrications to settle goals and agenda.
“There is no bad blood between Shumba and me.
“We are in good books my brother and we share a lot of things.
“We are brothers and many people were waiting for this opportunity, it has come,” he said.
“In life there are people who create scenes which suit them, let’s take for example Dynamos fans vs Highlanders their fans are on each other’s throats.
“They create an environment to show that the two teams are rivals.
“Mafans ndiwo anenge achida kutirwisa.”
Similar sentiments were echoed by Mutare based entertainer Shumba.
“As musicians we preach through songs so we decided to put our hands on a project.
“We have a good relationship and the song will be out next week.
“The song encourages people to invite God in their lives.
” Let’s call God now we are in a crisis of coronavirus pandemic.
“We need him most, without him we will fail,” he said.
Mhere also encouraged people of Zimbabwe to observe all the orders from the health experts.
“The President himself banned gatherings of more than 100 people in a bid to avoid the spread of the pandemic.
“We should follow the orders and always wash our hands always to avoid the spread of the covid 19.
“It’s very scary my brother and people should avoid movements which are not that necessary.
“Let’s try and get masks as well as gloves to save lives,” he said.
“It’s sad Zororo Makamba succumbed to coronavirus, he was a Hardworking and a promising young man.
“We were not expecting that and I am very sorry for the loss.
“Let’s pray to God so that he can intervene and give us a solution.”
