SUNGURA musician Solo Moyo says pressure from fans has forced him to bounce back on the musical scene with a new album.
Moyo has been on a sabbatical pursuing his mining interests and had gone for close to three years without an album.
Speaking to H-Metro on Monday, Moyo said he had no option but to give in to the demands of his fans and return to the studio.
The Kutinya Express leader has since released a new album titled Nyaya Yakanaka – his sixth.
“It’s been long since I released an album. I think it’s close to three years now since my last project.
“I have been pursuing other avenues but the pressure from fans has been too much. I meet most of my fans in the mining communities.
“I remember at one point I was almost assaulted by some fans demanding me to release a new album. I then realised that I have no option but to give them what they want,” said Moyo.
He also said his love for music has also contributed to the latest project having considered to shelve recording music before.
“The most contributing factor is the pressure from the fans but I would like to highlight that music runs in my veins. That is the reason I listened to what my fans are saying and went back to the studio.
“So this album is inspired by my fans and I am dedicating it to them,” he said.
Moyo, who confessed of getting inspiration from the late Tongai Moyo, said his wish is to make sure the sound remains on top.
“I am getting a lot of comments from fans that I have reminded them of the late Tongai Moyo. I have been always clear on that issue, I am inspired by Tongai Moyo and I actually love it when people say I sound like Tongai,” he said.
The album was produced by veteran producer Jabulani Ndlovhu at Trutone Studios.
It carries songs like Huya Tigare, Sorry, Mabasa Erima, Mwari WeNyasha, Masiziva and Imba Inorema.
Moyo started his musical career in 2005 with his debut six-track album titled Ngazvive Zvenyu.
