Magacha album launch on cards


AFTER a three-year sabbatical, gospel musician Sabastian Magacha believes he is now ready to release his new album, Wonererwai Jesu.


The launch, initially scheduled for October 6 at Theatre in the Park, had to be postponed to November 10.

“We wanted to give it time, advertise and push it so that we let people know of our launch and we also had one or two things to polish up, but we are more than ready now to release it to the people,” Magacha said.

The musician said the album was meant to cater for different gospel music lovers although he has retained his unique touch.

“This album is big. It is a project that carries a lot of weight because it caters for everyone, but we are also maintaining who Magacha really is,” he said.

“This album is going to have momentum that is bigger than before because I believe God created me for a reason. I grow with time, the more we have time, the more I grow. We also move with what is trending, the new sounds and everything so that we are never behind.”

Magacha roped in jazz sensation, Prudence Katomeni-Mbofana, Alick Macheso, Jah Prayzah and award-winning producer Oskid, whom he will share the stage with during the launch.

Magacha said he is going to do more collaborations with international artistes.

“I have already started doing collaborations within Africa because that is how things are going nowadays. I have worked with a guy from Namibia whose name is de larf and our song is already making noise in Namibia so more collaborations are coming with International artistes,” he said.
