KADOMA-based Dendera musician and preacher, Charles Pintec, says music is not about competition but is a mirror of what happens in the society.
The Komboni Yatsva singer said:
“I release single after single not because of competition with anyone, but the idea is to try and quench all the Dendera faithfuls’ musical thirst throughout the whole year.
“I have since dropped a new single Chirombohwe, which was written in our typical Shona tradition of drawing everyone’s attention, as in folk telling.
“I have seen it fit to re-awaken my Dendera followers by chanting ‘Chirombohwe’ in the song.
“Music should not be about competition but reflecting about what is happening in the society.
“Chirombohwe’s release is an encouragement to my fans to keep supporting Dendera.
“My wife and family have been very supportive of my musical work from day one up to now and I am forever grateful to them.
“The year looks promising, in terms of music, considering the fact that the ravaging Covid-19 pandemic is easing.”
The African Pride Orchestra Band leader is also expecting to drop another single on May 20, Chimbwa Mupengo.
He has been working with seasoned producer, Herbert Masanje, from Hermas Studios.
“I also give respect to the Band’s Patron, B.M Mlilo, who is very supportive of our projects,” he said.
