RIS­ING Rusape-based dance­hall artiste Lipa Tee’s stock con­tinue to sparkle and shine as he last week dropped his third al­bum at a glit­ter­ing launch at Ven­gere Hall.

Lipa Tee, whose real name is Ton­derai Mutete and is backed by a live band, The Vic­tory Syn­di­cate Band, be­lieves his al­bum, “Brewing Prob­lems”, is good enough to com­pete well with other es­tab­lished names in the dance­hall arena. “Brewing Prob­lems” has 11 tracks “Of­fi­cer”, “Chiremba”, “Party”, “Mu­nam­ato”, “Zimbabwe”, “Madz­i­mai”, “Hobho”, “Mwedzi Mutete”, “Anoti Nyo”, “Friendly Match” and “Le­gacy”.

Lipa Tee be­lieves his third al­bum will wean him from be­ing a small artiste and po­si­tion him among the big guns in the genre that has taken the nation by storm.

“I be­lieve this al­bum will dom­i­nate the air­waves be­cause we in­vested a lot of en­ergy and re­sources to come up with this prod­uct. We have im­proved from the way we pro­duced our two pre­vi­ous al­bums.

“I know com­pe­ti­tion in dance­hall genre is tough, but I am ready for to face it.

“The al­bum is al­ready re­ceiv­ing favourable air­play on all ra­dio sta­tions and it is so en­cour­ag­ing. This fes­tive sea­son we will be tour­ing var­i­ous cities per­form­ing with other artistes and this will help us to mar­ket our­selves.

“We will not be pick­ing fights with other artistes, but we want to com­ple­ment what they are al­ready do­ing for the de­vel­op­ment of the mu­sic sec­tor.

“Brewing Prob­lems is a de­cent al­bum with clean lyrics which suits all age groups. We are not tar­get­ing youths only, but ma­ture fans also,” said the 26-year-old mu­si­cian.
