FORGOTTEN gospel musician and keyboard wizard Munyaradzi Munodawafa (27) is set to break his long silence next month when he launches his new 10-track album which he said will mark his return to mainstream music.

Munodawafa said the forthcoming album — the sixth in a career birthed during his teenage years — is titled Mwari Vachitiitira Zvakanaka.

A product of the Capota School of the Blind who is now based in Masvingo, the Shandisa Chipo Chako hitmaker told NewsDay he believed the album could be his best to date.

“I believe this is the best album for me. I will be launching the album on March 30. My last album, Chikwata Chinokunda, did not do well because of poor marketing,” Munodawafa said on the sidelines of Mathias Mhere’s album launch recently.

“I’m not a spent force yet. I’m still in the game. God is still using me as a preacher through music,” he said.

Songs on the album, which was produced at Diamond Studios, include Murangarire, Areka, Zvakatora Muchinjikwa and Chikwereti.

Munodawafa was born in 1988 with an eyesight challenge and is fondly remembered by many as the young boy who mesmerised gospel music fans with his polished keyboard skills which he displayed on Shandisa Chipo Chako.

He released his first album Mwari Anoona with the hit song in 1998 at the age of 10. He went to the United States in 1999 where he spent 14 years before returning to Zimbabwe in 2005. Farai Munashe was released the following year before he disappeared from the music scene. He returned in 2010 with the album Zvinouraya, which received commendable airplay on local radio stations. The albums that followed are Zvava Nezodzo (2012) and Chikwata Chinokunda (2014).
