Zimbabwe: Steady Demand for Macheso's Album

Alick Macheso's "Kwatakabva Mitunhu (Kure Kwekure)" album went on sale countrywide yesterday.

The album was distributed to record bars and vendors across the country. The album is supposed to cost US$5 but the vendors were selling it at US$7.

"For distribution's sake the album is being sold by vendors and record bars. We decided to rope in the vendors because they are very effective, even mobile network providers use the vendors," said Last Murerwa, Last Power Media boss.

A survey conducted by Herald Entertainment showed that there was a steady demand of the album.

"I have already sold 12 copies," said a vendor along Robert Mugabe Road.

This is Macheso's ninth after "Zvinoda Kutendwa", "Magariro", "Vakiridzo", "Simbaradzo", "Zvakanaka Zvakadaro", "Zvido Zvenyu Kunyanya", "Vapupuri Pupurai" and "Ndezvashe-eh".
