Zimbabwe: Album Number 10 for Vabvuwi West

Harare — POPULAR gospel music outfit Vabvuwi West have consolidated their stranglehold on the music scene with the release of their eight-track album, Tiri Vawadzani.

Zechias Kandimire, Vabvuwi's marketing director, said the album consists of songs taken mainly from the United Methodist hymn book.

These include the title track Tiri Vawadzani, Zano Chiro Chakanaka, Hakuna Hama Kupinda Jesu, Baba Ndino Shama Kwazvo, MuKristu Ari Mkomborerwi, Baba Ndiri Mwana Wenyu and Zvangu Zvese Ndezva Jesu.

Zvangu Zvese Ndezva Jesu highlights that there is no relative who is reliable like Jesus and reminds people that he is the one who leads his "flock".

In the song they thank God for everything they have and say all they have came from God.

Kandimire said the group was working on yet another 10-track album due for release sometime this year.

However, he said his group was currently facing problems in marketing their album following the closure of RTP -- who were marketing it -- last year.

He said in releasing this album, Vabvuwi wanted to remind their fans that they were still around and preaching the word through music.

Vabvuwi West is a 16-member ensemble from the United Methodist, based in Harare.

Tiri Vawadzani is Vabvuwi's 10th album.
