Prince Mafukidze to conduct auditions


Popular gospel musician Prince Mafukidze will this weekend conduct auditions for talented gospel musicians who will be part of his latest music project.
Mafukidze said all was set for the auditions that would lead to the formation of a church choir in an effort to create opportunities for talented gospel singers who could not afford to record on their own.
He said the album that would be released later this year, would give upcoming musicians an opportunity to showcase their talents.“I am creating a platform for exposure to benefit musicians from my church and other people in the gospel industry,” said Mafukidze.
He said he would now be singing with various church choirs after the auditions, adding that the musicians had to be Christians and willing to learn.
“Those I will take on board will have to be committed to the project, meaning that they cannot be under any contract with any recording company,” he said.
The album will have 10 tracks.
“The album will have an African feel in it that even the Europeans can appreciate,” he said, adding that the choir would be launched during a week-long show in Harare soon.
Mafukidze is the founder and senior pastor of House of Praise Ministries, a Pentecostal church in Harare.
Mafukidze said his aim was to help upcoming gospel musicians as he was convinced that working with them in a new group would help them learn more about gospel music.
The auditions will take place tomorrow in Harare.
The gospel musician has promised a comeback by the end of the year after he had gone silent from the music scene since his last album Ndamirira-We Wait on You in 2007.
The 39 year-old father of two became popular after releasing his first album From Where I Stand in 2002 which included the popular hit song Chitsike.
Mafukidze did not stop there. He went on to produce another album Its Ok which had mind blowing tracks such as Wasara Wega and Driver which at one point became one of the most popular song on radio and local television.
“I am making a come back at the end of this year and will be recording with a huge choir this time,” he told NewsDay yesterday.
Mafukidze said his work as a pastor took up most of his time.
