AWARD-WINNING gospel star, Reverend Togarepi Chivaviro, will end his career in style with a collaboration with top South African singer Sipho Makhabane.
Chivaviro has revealed that he will end his music career in style when he launches his 20th album on January 22 next year.
The Ebenezer hitmaker released his duet with Sipho Makhabane, last Friday, titled Famba Usacheuke, off the forthcoming album.
For Chivaviro, this is an early Christmas gift as he waves goodbye to his fans.
“It’s been a great musical journey and one long ride that I won’t regret.
“Signing out with this collaboration with my role model, Sipho Makhabane, means a lot to me,” said Chivaviro.
He said he wants to pursue preaching and nurturing young talent.
“This collaboration is the biggest thing that has ever happened to me.
“I now want to shift my focus to preaching and helping other upcoming artists.
“If ever you hear my voice in a song after January 2023, it will probably be on a single or something special,” said Chivaviro.
Accompanying visuals for the new song, will also be ready in January.
The musician said the 20th album is ready.
“The album is ready and only awaits a launch date in January.
“I am excited to give fans the new music and appreciate them for their support throughout my career,” he said.
Chivaviro made a name for himself on the local music through the popularity of his albums, including Ebenezer, Mhepo Inoperekedza and Kana Wakayambuka.
Some of his early projects include Peace, Hope and Love (1999), Power (2000), Best of Rev TT Chivaviro (2006), The Return (2009) and Ishe Taungana (2013), among others.
