LOCAL gospel artiste Adency Dhewa and his Salvation Group band are set to release their second eight-track album titled Zvotoda Nyasha on March 1, barely nine months after his debut album last year.
In an interview recently, Dhewa said the release of the album recorded at Diamond Studios had come much earlier than anticipated because of the demand from the fans.
“The reception by the fans is amazing and I think it is largely because Zimbabwe is basically a Christian society.
“Since the release of Ndi Jehova Wehondo (debut album) fans have been asking for the release of more music from us hence we have heeded them by this forthcoming album,” he said.
He also indicated that some of the tracks in his previous project had made great waves on the local scene hence the urge to work harder and produce more.
“Tracks like Holy Spirit from our previous album have found great airplay so we are planning to keep it like that by continuing to entice local gospel lovers,” added Dhewa who bemoaned his late entry to the industry attributing it to lack of opportunities.
Local gospel musicians have in the past made great impact prompting other musicians to shift from their initial genres to gospel in a bid to elongate their stay in the not-so-friendly Zimbabwean music industry.
