Zimbabwe: Masinire Basks in New Album Glory

One of Zimbabwe's brightest gospel music prospects Best Masinire's latest album Mashoko/Words, which also contains the hit song Rooted in the Word of God, generated excitement at its launch with the young artiste's musical prowess being equated to one of Africa's greatest gospel musicians, Frank Edwards.

The trending Masinire mesmerised the largely youthful crowd who were at the launch of the 14-track gospel gem in Harare last week with the songs Mikana and Kwese standing out as the fans' favourites.

The fans were also extra-blessed with powerful performances from popular gospel artiste Flame B, who led other upcoming musicians such Minister Tait, Malcom, J Soldier, Tawanda Midzi and rising Christian poet Hey Hey Preacher.

Masinire was also rewarded for the efforts in the production of the album with $1 000 by the guest of honour, Christ Embassy pastor Ruth Musarurwa, who said the humble young artiste was going to be rewarded for his supernatural music talents and hard work.

Pastor Alfred Gurura, who was representing the guest of honour at the launch, told Masininire to "never despise the day of humble beginnings as the reign of increase and grace has poured over your life in the music ministry".

Masinire worked with various producers including Wisdom Nyaparami, Ela Bass, Simba E Jay and Tapiwa Macelo.
