Malawi-based R&B Zimbabwean born Theo Thomson has caused a stir on the international music scene following the release of his debut album Gypsy.
Two of his musical videos Kuthentha and Stutter have been featured on Channel O and popular music station MTV.
“Basically I’m here to let Zimbabweans have a taste of my new offering and I hope to gain a lot of support from them,” said Thomson in an interview at the weekend.
The 25-year-old singer said his album was a self introduction and that he wrote the songs from personal experiences.
Theo’s father is owner of Fm 101 Power where he used to work as a DJ when he was much younger. He said the King of Pop, the late Michael Jackson, was his inspiration.
“I am back home to network with local musicians so that we take our music to higher levels,” he said.
Thomson, who is also owner of the Blantyre-based Matalala Recording Studio, said highlights of his career included his performance at last year’s Big Brother Africa semi final.
He also worked with American singer Sway who operates under Akon’s Konvict label together with a number of other African artists.
Thomson said although he has not lived in Zimbabwe for the better part of his life, he had a strong attachment to this country.
“I will frequent Zimbabwe more often and do some shows.”
