AFTER spending over a decade under the leadership of his younger brother Mathias, upcoming gospel musician Daniel Mhere is on the verge of moving out of his sibling’s band to start solo performances with his own group, Gospel Hurricannes.
Daniel ventured into the music sector in 2003, under the watchful eye of Mathias with whom he has been performing with the greater part of his career.
Speaking to NewsDay, Daniel said going solo does not mean he has deserted his brother, but the move is to spread the word of gospel at different fronts.
“I have enjoyed working with Mathias for years, but as for this year, I felt it was high time for me to be weaned to experience life away from him,” Daniel said.
“Our mission remains the same as we are there to minister through music. We must not fail to perform because Mathias is in the United Kingdom with the band.”
Daniel is riding high with his debut eight track album titled Na Jehovah Zvinoita released late last year.
The album, which was produced, recorded and mixed by Charles Ayibeki at Devine Records carries songs Zvichanaka, Pakupedzisira, Murevi Wenhema, Kurwa Hakusi Kwedu, Zvamachata, Panezvinorema, Mwari Vedu Varipo and Nyika Inorema.
Mathias featured on two tracks Zvichanaka and Pakupedzisira.
Daniel said he was ready to face the challenges in the music sector and is not moved by competition.
The 30 year old musician has expressed gratitude to fans for their unwavering support that has seen two of his songs Zvichanaka and Pakupedzisira being on top of gospel charts on two local radio stations.
Despite Daniel singing gospel, he has proved to have his own unique style different from his brother.
