Afro-Jazz musician Willom Tight has bought recording equipment to fulfil his dream of setting up a studio. Tight recently acquired the equipment from South Africa. The "Ndinoda Wangu Weparuzevha" hitmaker has already set up the equipment in a temporary studio.

He is currently building the studio.

Willom has also incorporated his son Gary's initials on the recording label.

The studio has been christened GW Tight Music, G standing for Gary and W for Willom.

That Gary's initial precedes his father's perhaps signifies that Willom believes in his son's potential to surpass him as a musician.

A close associate of Tight, Joseph Pombi, said the musician intends to make the studio a platform to nurture local talent in and around his community.

Willom is currently in the studio together with his son working on an album titled "Father and Son".

The 10-track album will have five tracks from Willom and the other five from Gary.

The album is set to be launched in March this year.

Gary has been a revelation since his grand entrance on the music circles.

The musician is proving to be his own man, holding shows across the country.

The youthful musician completed his Ordinary Level studies last year and is taking music seriously.

The 18-year-old plays a number of instruments and is fast becoming a favourite amongst jazz fans.

He has since formed his own band Zion Originated.
