SUNGURA musician Peter Moyo has recorded a duet titled Ga Gona Madi (Pasina Mari) with Motswana sensation Naledi Kaisara, better known as Slizer in the showbiz circles.
The song was recorded at the weekend by Botswana-based Zimbabwean producer Doctor Tawanda born Tawanda Kasaira who is well-known for remixing Alick Macheso’s songs.
Ga Gona Madi carries a social message that talks about a wife who wants to divorce her husband accusing him of failing to take care of her as he promised when she married her.
Peter Moyo said he was happy to collaborate with Slizer who is a well-known artiste in the region.
“The idea behind collaborating with Slizer was to give our Utakataka fans something new from what they used to know as we seek to take our Utakataka brand to greater heights,” Moyo said.
“This is an important project that has seen us exchanging a lot of ideas. The collaboration goes a long way as the song will also be marketed in Botswana.”
Young Ingwe said because he had developed a very good working relationship with Slizer, they would soon hold shows in Botswana.
He added that he would also be playing the song during his live shows and Slizer would do the same.
Slizer said she was pleased with the relationship she had built with local musicians and had enjoyed working with Moyo, describing him as a hardworking artiste.
“I appreciate the studio relationship that I have with talented Zimbabwean artistes. Zimbabwe has become my second home,” Slizer said.
“We did the song passionately and I am hoping our fans will like it,” she said.
This is not the first time Slizer has collaborated with a local artiste. Last month she did another duet with afro-jazz musician Prince Musarurwa and she has also worked with Gweru-bred musician Madiz.
Slizer enjoyed cordial relations with Peter’s late father, Tongai. Last year in October she was part of the artistes who performed at Tongai Moyo’s memorial gigs that were held in different local towns and cities.
