Charity Kamazizwa back home for double launch
South Africa based gospel singer Charity Kamazizwa who collaborated with Ethel Kamwendo Banda in one of her songs is in the country to launch two albums titled Munandidziwa Ndisanabadwe and My Life is Changing.
The singer, who has stayed in Cape Town for close to seven years, said she was happy to be home and launch her two albums which she described as ‘mature’ albums.
“I took time in working on the two albums but then I thought I should launch them first here at home because charity always begins at home. I am excited and can’t wait to be on stage come May 24 at Robin’s Park Hall,” said Kamazizwa.
The artist is in the country supported by Dusheha Music Promotion which is spearheaded by Duncan Sheha.
Kamazizwa also said that in order to give people the best on the day, she has come with her producer Thomas Hojani.
“ Of course I will perform live with Groove Magic Band but I also felt I should bring my producer Thomas Hojani so as to offer the best on the day,” she said.
The musician recorded her albums at Palm Records in Cape Town.
In the album Munandidziwa Ndisanabadwe, there is a song titled ‘Ndiyele’ currently enjoying airplay in some of the local radio stations which she collaborated with Kamwendo Banda.
“It was a perfect thing to work with Ethel. We actually met in Cape Town when she came for an event and having found me in the studio she decided to assist me. It will be nice to perform together live on stage,” she said.
Some of the songs people will sample in the album include ‘Dziko,’ ‘King of Kings,’ ‘I will never let you go,’ in which she has featured Zambian artist Joshua Manyika and ‘True Love,’ which she produced with South African artist Mihie.
The gospel musician says her staying in Cape Town has exposed her to music and that she has networked with several other musicians from other countries.
“I am targeting working with musicians from other countries. I have done that in the two albums but I am looking at doing more,” said Kamazizwa.
In My Life is changing, the singer has worked with a Mozambican musician in the song ‘Ndivulele indlela.’ The other songs people will sample in this album include ‘Mount Zion,’ and ‘God of possibility.’
She said she has used several genres in the songs so as to reach out to different people. Some of the genres in the songs include House, Calypso, Rumba, Rock, Funk and Pasada.
Apart from Kamwendo Banda, some of the musicians set to spice up her launch include Thocco Katimba, Allan Chirwa, Favoured Martha, Limbani Simenti and King James Phiri.
