RISING gospel artist, Timothy Timothy, is delighted by the honour he received to be part of the much-hyped Lyngo riddim.
This is the country’s first riddim featuring gospel artists.
It was produced by Lyton Ngolomi at his studios in Harare.
Speaking to H-Metro, Timothy said he was excited to be part of the project.
“It is quite exciting and I feel honoured to participate in this riddim by renowned and legendary producer Lyton Ngolomi.
“It is a great challenge for me and yet a good chance to prove my mettle since it is my first time to take part in any riddim,” he said.
His contribution to the riddim was a song he composed.
“I wrote and sang the track called Ndini Uya Uya for the riddim.
“It took several weeks to compose and record this song.
“I felt very glad to finally have a chance to take part in a riddim done by the mercurial Lyton Ngolomi,” said Timothy.
The talented songwriter, who doubles as an evangelist, said he was impressed by the quality of the riddim.
“It took a lengthy period for the riddim to be composed. Lyton took his time and came up with something exquisite, all genres inclusive, and with a catchy melody.
“It was quite satisfactory when the final product came. We consulted with other artists and got good feedback, which helped us perfect the unique riddim,” he told H-Metro.
Ngolomi assured fans that there was more to come for the fans after this riddim.
“As Lyngo Studios, we promise to release several albums for artists this season, including Evangelist Timothy’s Ndaona Kakore, Brian Ngolomi’s Takaenda Takaenda, to name but a few.
“We look forward to holding a series of shows under the stable.
“Top artists like Bethen Pasinawako, Trymore Bande, Kudzi Nyakudya, Joseph Tivafire, Nicholas Chirunga, Dorcas Moyo will be performing during the shows to be advised. Please note that we are also unearthing new talent and exposing them through Lyngo riddim.
“We look forward to doing awards under Lyngo Beats as well,” he said.
He added: “We are looking forward to putting the gospel genre back in the limelight and at the same time uniting artists from different genres and stables under such projects as this riddim.
“We look forward to releasing a video medley for the participating artists.”
Asked what was his assessment of the year, in terms of music, he said:
“There is ecstasy around the country because live shows have resumed, thanks to the Government for giving us the greenlight to perform.
