AWARD-WINNINg musician Obert Chari has disclosed that his upcoming album Ubuntu, which he claimed would match the standard set by the monster track Mebo, was set to be released in August.

Chari told NewsDay Life & Style yesterday that production of the album had wrapped up.

“I can say we have finished the album and it’s in our hands and we need to sit down with management to look at our marketing strategy, but fans must be rest assured that the album will be out next month,” he said.

“The seven-track album, Ubuntu, tackles various aspects concerning our daily lives and I am glad that we have managed to finish it and we are still in the game of entertaining our fans and bringing out the best.”

The ZCC Hakireni frontman, who rose to fame with that chart-topper, Mebo, said it took long for him to bounce back with new work because he wanted to come up with a product reflecting great craftsmanship after considering ideas from different people.

“Since 2018, we have not released anything. I know Mebo placed us on the map and at that time I met a lot of people who gave me advice on how to be a successful musician and these ideas needed a lot of time to dwell on them in order to select the best that would help me,” he said.

“So I took my time to work on this album. We used this time to prepare and perfect it, but this one will be far above Mebo in terms of standards, so fans must brace for the best and I don’t have any collaborations for this one.”

Chari, who once collaborated with an Australian music outfit, Diversity Music Collective, in a song titled Mugidhi, disclosed that the video for the song would be out next week.

The album consists of seven tracks namely Sorry, Ubuntu, Baba na Mai and Takatadzeiko, Nhava Isingabvinze, Svikiro reMweya and Dherira.

Chari shared insights into some of the new album’s contents.

“We have Sorry, a song that tells people of the need to apologise whenever they wrong each other especially in marriages. I also do the same to my wife Mebo. In Ubuntu, I try to urge people not to forget our morals especially when we go to other places as the world is now fast becoming a global village due to technology,” he said.

“Baba naMai talks of the need to take care of our parents, while Nhava Isingabvinze teaches girls to keep their purity.”
