"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.
