THE young Igwe Peter Moyo confounded his critics who had written him off as a flop, after performing his first-ever original song during the Dr Nero Commemoration show held over the weekend at Andy Miller Hall in Harare.

Moyo, who has in the past admitted that he had been struggling with vocals, said he would soon release his debut album following approval by gospel musician Charles Charamba who has been training him in vocals.
Moyo surprised hundreds of music fans who thronged the commemoration gig after sampling a new song called Mira Newako.
“Pastor Charamba said my voice was now good enough for me to go into the studio and because of that, my new offering will be ready soon.”
Moyo could not tell exactly when this new album will hit the market, but said all the songs were now ready for recording.
“Most stages have been covered and the album is taking shape. We are now finalising some of the songs and we are confident we have put enough effort to give our fans an excellent product,” Moyo said.
The young Igwe went on to lead Tryson Chimbetu’s new song Bhora Mberi to prove his newly acquired vocal skills.
Charamba said he agreed to assist the young musician because of the relationship he had with his father.
“His father was a man who feared God and he would always call seeking divine assistance from us. Peter is like my son and I have to spare my time to assist him,” Charamba said.
The Nyika yeZimbabwe hitmaker said he was happy that the young musician had been improving since he started assisting him.
