The musicians who took part in the track include Minister Michael Mahendere, Suluman Chimbetu, Progress Chipfumo, Selmor Mtukudzi, Fungisai Zvakavapano, Anita Jackson and Sandra Ndebele amongst others.


Speaking to H-Metro Entertainment & Lifestyle, Kachirekwa, who is working with his wife Evelyn, said the rise in girl child abuse needs national attention.


“The reason we came up with this idea is the early child marriages we have been experiencing as a country. It is not only the duty of those in power to address this critical issue but everyone should play a part.


“Together with my wife, we saw it noble to engage the artists to ensure the song has a wider reach at the same time safeguarding the future of this country in as far as girl child is concerned,” said Kachirekwa.


Kachirekwa, who comes from a humble background and understands the issue, added that they have come up with a guideline for the musicians who feautered on the song.


He, however, said the artists have been given freedom to showcase their versatility.


“Obviously we have a message we want to send and we have come up with a guideline, sort of a script to ensure the artists stick to the right message. But we have given them the democracy to showcase what they have in store,” he said.


He said negotiations are underway with sungura kingpin Alick Macheso to add his voice.


“The song which will be launched on October 15 is almost done. We are negotiating with Macheso’s management to add their input on the song which is 95% complete.”


“The idea behind engaging several artistes from different genres is to have the song appeal to a different audience.”
