The former New Stars Musica frontman had stints with the late sungura musician, Tongai Moyo, his son Peter, businessman and musician, Energy Mutodi, raunchy dancer, Beverly Sibanda and most recently sungura musician, Gift Amuli.
Shiga Shiga told NewsDay Life &Style that he does not regret the years he spent jumping from band to the next and described Joy Commander, real name Casper Mudzengerere, as the “messiah” he has been waiting for over the years.
“I am the happiest man on earth after joining Joy Commander’s band on a full time basis,” he said.
“This time, I have finally decided to settle down at Boys ReNyombwe band. I have committed myself to the band and I don’t want to disappoint him.
“To many people, Joy Commander might be virtually a nonentity, but to me, he is a great person, who has changed my life for the better.
“I helped him to record his latest album — Rudo Mukurarama — which is currently doing well on the charts.”
The album Rudo Mukurarama, which is Joy Commander’s second production, was recorded by Jabulani Ndlovu at his Truetone Studios and it carries six songs — Magamba, Makorokoto, Zvinofadza Sei?, Mafaro, VaTazvida and Rudo.
Shiga Shiga has also pledged his loyalty to Joy Commander’s outfit, which has lined up a series of shows.
“Joy Commander is a hard working person and a God fearing man, who is also a member of Prophetic Healing and Deliverance Ministry led by Walter Magaya, where he got all the blessings he has.
“I would like to help him reach his potential,” he said.
