GWANDA — Local gospel singer Samuel Sokosi has roped in veteran musician Noel Zembe on his third album, Mazuva Mashoma Asara, which will be launched in April this year after its production at Laag Beats and Vibes.

Produced by Seku Bee, the six-track album carries the songs Zvenyika Ino, Nditumei, Mukuramarama, Zimbabwe, Satan Muroyi, Zvichanoshamisa Ikoko and the title track Mazuva Mashoma Asara, featuring Noel Zembe.
“I am finalising the project and I can assure you that I am 70% done. We will take the album launch to three different cities as a way to capture new markets,” Sokosi said, adding that he was banking on Zembe’s experience and wisdom.
“Since childhood I have drawn inspiration from Mkoma Noel (Zembe), his music inspires and strengthens the spirit.”
He said he was honoured to be working with Zembe, who is renowned from his time with the Frontline Kids, especially for the hit song, Ndaiwana Hama.
Sokosi’s video for the single Zimbabwe featuring Kadoma based Luwiza rocked national television ZBC TV late last year.
The Kadoma-born Sokosi grew up in Masvingo before moving to Gwanda. His two previous albums Ivai Nesu and Uya Kuna Jesu rocked the airwaves with some of the tracks topping Radio Zimbabwe charts.
