In the song, recorded by popular producer, Macdonald Chidavaenzi, Mukaro is pleading for comfort and protection from the Almighty to the families and children, who have become orphans as a result of road accidents and cancer-related diseases.
Speaking to NewsDay yesterday, Mukaro said she was moved by the number of people, who had perished in road accidents and cancer-related bereavements that through the song she is pleading with motorists to exercise caution and reduce road carnage.
“From my observation and affected person, I have learnt that road accidents and cancer have become among the top shocking destroyers of life and it is to that effect that I decided to pen such a song,” she said.
“It is difficult to believe and accept that many people are losing lives because of speeding, hence, the need to plead with drivers as well as sympathise with those who lost their relatives through the song.
“The message on the song acknowledges the pain that families go through after such tragedies and gives hope by consoling the victims of such misfortunes through God’s powers.”
Mukaro said being consistent in releasing songs had presented an opportunity for her to explore and discover herself as a serious and committed gospel artiste ready to minister the word of God through music.
She expressed gratitude to her husband, Wisdom for helping her in composing and arranging the songs.
Backed by her Faith Movers, Mukaro continues to hone her skills with live performances at functions such as weddings, church gatherings and corporate events.
She is well-known for gospel hits including Mhinduro, Kupisirira Kune Zuva, Tinomurumbidza and Munamato Unesimba.
