New kid on the block

HARARE - Multi-talented artiste Maad Vultej real name Victor Muchenje has released his debut 16-track album titled Project Man-Ah-Seh.

Project Man-Ah-Seh is a conscious reggae, dancehall and reggae (hardcore) bag that is premeditated for reggae lovers.

Maad Vultej doubles music and poetry; he usually performs at Book Cafe in Harare with the poetry group House of Hunger.

Though he is a holder of Bachelor’s Honours degree in Human Resources Management Maad Vultej has endured pursuing musical career, moulding his talent hence he has recorded an album.

“It recently dawned on me that one cannot successfully run away from one’s talent — it knows where exactly to find you.

“Music talent is in me and because I feel the responsibility to convey pro-African messages with my fellow people — and this is the main reason why I am taking music seriously,” he said.

He said talent makes one famous but attitude makes one successful.

“It is good to be humble and mistakes of a humble man strengthen his heart,” said Maad Vultej.

The soloist said he has always been in the arts sector all his life as he started being on the stage group while he was in primary school.

“I was involved, public speaking and drama when I was doing my primary school level and I am also a poet at the House of Hunger,” said the twenty-eight year old maestro.

Roots Vibration band leader was inspired by Jamaican musicians such as Bushman and Everton Blender.

“Locally I admired the works of legends such as the late Don Gumbo and Solomon Skuza,” he said.

The nine band leader is currently working on his master’s degree in Human Resources Management with Midlands State University.

His new album is made up of tracks that includes Pass me de mic, All I need, See me deh, Same Thugs, Celebrating, Dem Dad and Wise Bold among others.

The artiste is currently working on his second album titled Operation Reggae which is expected to hit market shelves early next year.

“The album in pipeline is made up of serious roots reggae and dub poetry,” he said.
