The album which Mhere said has deep and worship message will be launched at a local hotel in the capital.

Produced by Charles Aybek, it features Oliver Mtukudzi on track titled Tsano Handei which is an extract from the biblical verse. On this song, Mhere said Tuku only added his voice not the instruments.

Mhere has featured an array of artistes on his projects among them hilarious comedian Sabhuku Vharazipi, Selmor Mtukudzi among others.

Some of the songs to be featured on the album include Mazuva Akare, Vasiye Varonge, Pahushamwari, It’s not Over and Mwari Variko among others.

“Glory to Glory looks at different facets of Christianity and I am optimistic that it would go a long way in promoting Christian values and morals,” Mhere said.

“Taking it from the effort implemented to come up with this album, I am confident that it will do well on the market.”

It, however, remains to be seen if his forthcoming project will be better than his previous albums, namely Tinoda Nyasha a 2008 production, Anoita Minana that was released in 2012 and Nguva Yenyasha a 2013 production which have been well received by his fans across the country.

The Favour singer has expressed gratitude to both local and international promoters for according him the platform to take his music to different parts of the country and abroad.

On February 17 he will be leaving for Dallas Texas, United States of America for his debut shows that will see him spending a month in that country.

“We are what we are today because of promoters who have given us the platform to showcase our talent,” Mhere said.

Born on June 13, 1988 in Gutu, Mhere burst into the music industry as a vocalist for a Gweru-based group Rock of Ages before moving to Harare in 2007.

In that same year he engaged the services of guitarist-cum producer Clive Mono Mkundu to produce his debut album Tinoda Nyasha which failed to make it on the market.

It is, however, his second album, Anoita Minana, which was mistaken as Blessing Shumba’s album due to the striking similarities in style and presentation that propelled him to stardom.

The album had sing-along tunes such as Favour, Vimba NaJehova, Areka and Chipostora that have made him a household name.

It seems Mhere is enjoying the fruits of the industry. Late last year he opened his own studio in Harare’s central business district called Red Apple Productions.
