Sungura Kingpin Alick Macheso is living his best music life following the release of the much anticipated Tinosvitswanashe album in June.
The Sungura virtuoso who as has become tradition releases his albums on his 10th June birthday is filling venues for fun as fans sing along to hits of his new album. However, it appears his current success was long coming given the positives he recorded since June.
Not only did Macheso have a sold out launch at his Chitungwiza Aquatic Complex favourite hunting ground but he also held a corporate dinner which was attended by industry captains and relevant government officials.
A good four months on, Macheso continues to fill up venues around Zimbabwe. This also follows a successful expedition in faraway Europe where his die hard fans sang along to songs from the new album.
As lady luck continues to smile on him, Macheso and his camp have also delivered on one of their long time Achilles heel, the much needed videos to his quality productions.
It is a big anomaly that a musician of Macheso’s calibre had gone for a long time without producing videos to his musical masterpieces.
However, Macheso and his camp this year atoned for their shortcomings with a quality video to the song Kutadzirana produced by the multi-award winning Vusa Blaqs.
Macheso on his part thanked fans for their support over the years and pledged to give his best in appreciation of the love and unwavering loyalty
“Thank you all for the love and support. We have come this far because of you and we are happy that you continue to rally behind your band which we have aptly named band revanhu (the people’s band),” Macheso said.
Macheso also promised another new video in the month of November following the success of his first video in years aptly titled Kutadzirana. Indeed the man had sinned against his fans but the good music and quality videos should serve as a good apology. He has repaid his loyal fans’ trust.
