The album, which was recorded at Claude King Studios in South Africa, has been receiving significant airplay and has become a favourite of many.
Myrah said she was excited by the offer which will see her fans receiving a package this festive season.
“Having such an offer is indeed encouraging and I am happy to be giving my fans something to smile about this Christmas,” she said. “They have heard the voice but not many have seen the face save for those that come to my shows.”
She said she was hoping to have wrapped up the complete DVD album in early 2016.
“Music requires a professional approach and I am happy to have been offered free video production services to the song Shumba Woye by a local production house after they heard me perform during a live session on Star FM,” she said.
Dube, who is also a fashion model, said she was happy to be working with a professional production house.
Simon Manjoro from Digital Genius Pro said they felt compelled to support Myrah given the quality of her music.
“We offered Myrah the opportunity to record a musical video under our label because her music is good and we felt such good music deserves good quality video and that’s what we are to produce,” he said.
Digital Genius Pro are the producers of the current number 1 video on ZTV’s zimdancehall by Ezbee Fire called Rest in Peace and Charles Chipanga’s Hossana video, also playing on television.
“The song is a darling of many and in view of the impact it has on local and South African radio stations we have decided to give it priority by producing a video that can complement its reach.
