Honjo star San Bennet Msokera has said he does not regret taking up music as a career, saying he has enjoyed composing and performing for people.
The musician, who used to plough in secular before turning to gospel, has been in music for close to 26 years.
“It’s been a very good experience, I have made friends, I have met different people through music and a lot of people have come out to tell me that my music has blessed them. This is the talent that God gave me and I am happy to have utilised it fully to the glory of His name,” San B said.
With albums such as Nkhutukumve, Sweet Poem, 371, No Private Life, Acceptability and Fruits of 66, San B also spoke highly about the changes on the market now where he admitted that albums are no longer in fashion.
“With technology moving at a fast pace, a lot of things have changed, albums are not making any impact now on the market. Now singles are the in-thing; with technology, people are not interested in listening to one artist for a long time,” the Honjo star said.
He said his experience in music industry now is that what sells is not tradition but the common agenda.
“This is why top musicians are not selling tradition but the common agenda. And what artists need to look at is the common agenda,” San B said.
The artist has over the years also collaborated with a number of musicians including Saleta Phiri in the track ‘Munyaradzi’.
San B has opened 2021 with a new track titled ‘Amatimvera’, in which he has collaborated with Skeffa Chimoto.
“I am putting much effort in collaborations as part of giving people something different. It’s been tough with Covid but we just have to keep pushing and this is why I came out with ‘Amatimvera’ that no matter the situation we will go through this,” he said.
