The 12-track album is a collaborative effort that features artistes from across Southern Africa that could take Mingo, a gifted lyricist in his own right, to another level musically and perhaps help him build a fan base in Zimbabwe.

Mingo, who at the moment has five albums under his belt, teamed up with Prayzah on the track Keya Gorata, a love song that fuses the fast pace Kwasa beat with contemporary sungura.

The song tells a story about the need to embrace love as it comes and making your loved ones feel special all the times. The song was sung in both Shona and Setwana.

The Tshaba tsotsi hit maker also worked with dancehall crooner Shinsoman on the track titled Basheanyana that was produced by Hesh Mfesh.

The song fuses the jazzy touch and dancehall flavour that relatively brings out a unique musical   feel complemented by the duo’s lyrical and vocal prowess.

The song reflects back on the duo’s career and their abrupt rise to stardom, events that gave rise to their careers and the entire spotlight.

Speaking to NewsDay via the Social Networking site facebook from his base in Botswana, Mingo hailed Jah Prayzah as a creative genius citing him as a peer he always looks up to musically.

“He is truly a whiz kid when it comes to making music and he really added essence and maturity to my album. I have no doubt that people will like it.

“We have always worked together since I first met him in Botswana and I always dreamt of penning a hit song with him, hoping that this song gets all the support and love from Zimbabweans,” he said.

Mingo also spoke on his collaboration with Shinsoman and even expressed his wish to work with a couple of local artistes including Winky D and Rockford Josphats.

“It was really great working with the talented Shinsoman; I learnt quiet a great deal of ideals when it comes to appreciating music and exploiting one’s vocal ability.

“For me, Zimbabwe is like my second home and I would really like to extend my working relationships here. I do listen to and love local music and I even approached Roki to do a remix of his hit song Chidzoka.

“If all goes well, we will work together and I would also love to do something with Winky D,” said Mingo.

Currently signed under the label Black Money Makers that belongs to Odirile Vee Sentho who rose to fame with his hit-song Taku Taku that echoed all over Africa, Mingo is highly rated amongst some of Botswana’s heavyweights in music circles.
