PIONEERING gospel music legend Mechanic Manyeruke has yearned for a return to the good old times when gospel music lovers would throng the Harare Gardens for sold out shows.
Manyeruke, who is part of an array of gospel musicians billed to perform at the Enlight the World gospel music concert in Harare Gardens next Saturday, said the venue was the traditional home of gospel music concerts.
“I still have fond memories of when we would perform with some of the big names in local gospel music in Zimbabwe, the likes of Pastor (Lawrence) Haisa, Shuvai Wutawunashe, Gospel Trumpet and the now departed Mr Bulk. Families would come in their numbers and together we would praise the Lord,” he said.
Enlight the World director and event organiser, Tonderai Mayinori, said they were geared for the event.
“It’s going to be a top-notch gospel music concert with the likes of Joyful Praise Choir, known for their plug track Ngoro Yeminana joined on stage by Baba Manyeruke, Spirit Praise Choir, Nyasha Mutonhori and Mpostori Wency, among others,” he said.
Mayinori said the show would also afford fans time to praise and worship, while dedicating Zimbabwe to the Lord.
“We understand the challenges we are facing as a country hence this show which will allow peace believing gospel music fans to gather together, praise and worship while praying for the country,” he said.
Tickets for the show are pegged at ZWL$10.
