Sungura musician Gift Amuli is riding high with his latest album Machena that has been among top-selling releases from Gramma Records this year.
The six-track album has been receiving commendable airplay and making waves on the live entertainment scene.
Songs that have stolen music followers’ hearts include Nyasha, Gamuchirai and Nhai Baba.
The musician has been staging shows in many parts of the country to introduce the album to his fans since its release last month.
Amuli said response has been overwhelming, especially in remote parts of the country where he had not performed for a long time.
“We visited various parts of the country to market the album to our fans.
“We realised demand for the album was high in small towns and we had to go there first,” said Amuli.
“Most of music fans out there are farmers and we felt visiting those places during this season when they are not busy would be best.”
The musician would be rounding off his nationwide tour in the middle of August to launch the album in Harare.
The launch is slated for City Sports Bar in the city centre.
During his national tour, Amuli visited places like Chipinge, Chiredzi, Zvishavane and Bindura, among others.
This weekend he travels to Gokwe to stage three shows.
The musician, who has been outstanding at recent musical galas, promised his Harare fans a memorable experience when he launches the album.
“We have upped our choreography, as many might have noticed on television, when we performed at recent galas. We are looking forward to a great event when we launch the album because a number of our fans in the capital have been calling for our live shows.”
Amuli, who is one of the founding members of Zvishavane Sounds which topped charts with the song Chitototo in the late 90s, has been on a steady rise to fame.
