TAL­ENTED vo­cal­ist, Pas­tor Ti­nashe Murigo makes a sen­sa­tional re­turn to the gospel mu­sic scene with a soul­ful al­bum ti­tled ‘‘Zvichanaka’’ that is im­preg­nated with mes­sages of hope and en­cour­age­ment. The ten-track al­bum which is due for re­lease this week­end will be of­fi­cially launched on Jan­uary 27 at Cour­tauld Theatre.

Ti­nashe Murigo, who is the House of Power Apos­tolic Min­istries Church leader, re­vealed in an in­ter­view that he worked with sev­eral pro­duc­ers on the al­bum to di­ver­sify his sound.

The pro­duc­ers in­clude Charles Ay­ibeki, Wisla and Bless­ing Matanga.

“I roped in sev­eral pro­duc­ers to di­ver­sify my mu­sic. I want the al­bum to have a dis­tinct sound that will ap­peal to ev­ery gospel mu­sic lover,” he said.

The theme of the al­bum was de­rived from Isa­iah Chap­ter 3 verse 10 which reads, “Tell the right­eous: It shall be well with thee”.

Songs on the al­bum are ‘‘Ndidzidzi­sei ku­na­mata’’, ‘‘Mukandi­raira’’ fea­tur­ing Mr Blacks, Ni­cholas and Roe­sang, ‘‘Makuw­erere’’, ‘‘Muchiri neni here’’ (acous­tic ver­sion) and ‘‘Ne­ma­vanga ake’’.

“I com­posed the songs mainly from the lis­tener’s stand­point. I would ask ques­tions and an­swer them at the same time. I sing with one leg on the prob­lem and an­other on the so­lu­tion. The mes­sage makes it easy for lis­ten­ers to lis­ten to it,” said the Murigo.

Murigo rose to fame with hits such as ‘‘Senondo’’ and ‘‘Zvak­ab­had­harwa’’ which topped Di­a­mond FM Gospel Su­per 20. The soul­ful track, ‘‘Senondo’’, recorded by lo­cal pro­ducer Ngoni Mashezha, was one of his most pop­u­lar songs to date.

He draws his in­spi­ra­tion from gospel mu­si­cians such as Agatha Mu­rudzwa and Donna Chibaya.
