SUNGURA giant Alick Macheso believes the release of Nicholas ‘Madzibaba’ Zakaria’s new album titled Takakomborerwa tomorrow will make fans relive their early days.
Macheso said he feels honoured to work with Madzibaba and it reminds him of his heyday at Khiama Boys.
The sungura giant said while they have put enough effort and are expecting a hit, they leave everything to the fans.
“It is always good to work with mdhara Zakaria and we are leaving everything to the fans.
“I’ve learnt a lot from him in my career and it is always good to relive such memories,” said Macheso.
The album will be launched at Aquatic Complex in Chitungwiza tomorrow where a number of musicians are billed to perform.
The last time these three forces (Macheso, Zakaria and Zaka Zaka) worked together resulted in several hits which many still describe as the good old days of sungura music.
Remember songs like Mabvi neMagokora, Chikumbiro and Ndine Mubvunzo only to mention a few.
Can these good old days roll back tomorrow?
With a number of sungura musicians failing to make a mark in local showbiz, the release of this album has been tipped as the right ingredient to reclaim the fading glory.
Zakaria told H-Metro that he is happy that he is finally releasing the album and is hoping for success.
“I am happy that the album is finally here and to the fans we are saying come to Aquatic Complex on April 1,” he said.
Tomorrow’s event is expected to attract a full house with artistes like Macheso, Charles Charamba and wife Olivia, Freeman, Tryson Chimbetu, Andy Muridzo, Progress Chipfumo and Tocky Vibes among others.
The event is being powered by Zimbabwe Business and Arts Hub (Zibah).
