BULAWAYO-based kwaito musician Mbekezeli Mpofu, popularly known as PoZee, is set to release his third album which he says will see him reclaiming his position as the city’s kwaito king.
The 14-track album titled Feel Good is set to be released in the first week of March 2013.
In an interview with NewsDay yesterday, PoZee said preparations for the launch of the album had reached an advanced stage and his team was working tirelessly to ensure that the album is released in March.
“My album will feature 14 tracks and I will also release two videos concurrently with the audio project. I call it a combo album because it will have audio and videos. I am doing something that is rare in the country,” he said.
He said his team was already working on the production of his two music videos for two songs on the album.
Soon after the official launch of the album, the kwaito artiste will embark on a number of shows throughout the country.
“We have planned a number of shows and concerts in Bulawayo and throughout the country after the launch of the album.”
PoZee rose to fame in 2003 when he featured in his sister Sikhululekile “Skhu” Mpofu’s album titled Owami.
He released his first album Kas-lami, which featured hits like Hamba Nobani, in 2004.
His second album Mina leKwaito was released in 2007 featuring hits like Iz’gebengu zami, maMthombeni and Day by Day.
PoZee took a long break from the local music scene following the release of the second album, a move he attributed to economic hardships.
“I took a break because things were not working out in Zimbabwe. I moved from Bulawayo to Victoria Falls where I started running a restaurant before I moved to Botswana then Mozambique in order to work on some music collaborations.”
He resurfaced with a hit single in 2012 titled Jaiva Njengomuntu Olemali before he disappeared again.
