Zimbabwe: Tanga's New Song Calls for Peace, Unity

Township love music singer Tanga We- kwaSando has released a peace song titled "Vhotai Murunyararo Vhotai", ahead of the forthcoming referendum and harmonised elections set for this year. The "Wake" hitmaker said the song was his contribution to promoting peace in Zimbabwe in the upcoming elections.

"As an artist, I pray and hope that just as our political leadership is preaching the word of peace, peace and more peace the rest of the country will join in this chorus which will truly contribute to the anticipated renewal of Zimbabweans' aspirations for peace and prosperity," he said.

Besides singing township love songs, Tanga is also a social commentator having released such hits as "Torai", which talks about the land reform and "MaNetwork", where he criticises the poor services by some telecommunication networks, his music is about people.

He is also passionate about the African renaissance and the emancipation of Africans from colonialmentality Below are the lyrics of the new song:
