The Herald (Zimbabwe) - - Arts - Von­gai Mbara Arts Cor­re­spon­dent

UR­BAN grooves singer Leonard Map­fumo is billed to per­form tonight at the launch of Trevor Dongo’s mu­sic video for “Haz­vidi Nharo”.

Map­fumo, who has been on sab­bat­i­cal, said he is back with a new sound as well as ex­cit­ing projects. He is ex­cited to re­unite with Dongo with whom he has done a num­ber of projects.

He said it was an amaz­ing ex­pe­ri­ence to re­unite with his child­hood friend.

“This project is more of a High­field boys’ re­union. I grew up with Trevor so it was won­der­ful to work with him again. To make the song all rosy we de­cided to add Yoz to the video.

‘‘I am happy that the project is fi­nally done be­cause it is some­thing that was long over­due and we are all sat­is­fied that it came out ex­actly as we had vi­sion it to be,” he said.

“I will be per­form­ing at the launch and it will be like a re­vi­sion of what I used to do and also an in­tro­duc­tion of a new sound.

‘‘As you know my sound was more ur­ban, how­ever this time I have added the Afro-pop sound which is the ‘now sound’. I am ex­cited for peo­ple to hear the new sound,” said Map­fumo.

Rax the DJ will make be the guest DJ of the night and he will spice up the launch

“Haz­vidi Nharo” nar­rates a ghetto love story and it was pro­duced by Temp­ta­tion “T-man” Chirenje.

The video was shot, di­rected and edited by Simba G and B.Iden­ti­fied Me­dia in High­field.

Map­fumo and other yes­ter­year ur­ban groovers among them Mafrik, Roki, Cindy and Sniper Storm will also be re­unit­ing on June 2 at a show in Harare.
