Mhere locks down Bulawayo

BULAWAYO – Rising gospel star Mathias Mhere last Saturday proved why he is popular in Bulawayo with another riveting performance.

The Favour singer, alongside popular gospel artistes Charles and Olivia Charamba, was back in the City of Kings for an Apostolic Faith Mission in Zimbabwe (AFM) fund-raising concert.

Mhere shared the stage with Worship Addicts during the well-received show.

Clad in a silver jacket and black trousers, Mhere looked very assured as he churned out one hit song after another to the delight the audience.

Mhere took to the stage amid wild cheers from fans who were blown away by his popular hit Munongotichengeta which was accompanied by captivating dance routines.

The popular gospel music rookie paid tribute to the Charambas for introducing him to his new Bulawayo fan-base.

“I am happy with the response of my fans in Bulawayo which has improved greatly, thanks to the Charambas who laid a foundation for me and the Saints of God,” said Mhere to the Daily News after the show.

“Our support has increased and because of that, we are coming back again in August for another performance,” a visibly excited Mhere added.

The rising gospel star ?expressed willingness to work with Bulawayo artistes whenever he performs in the city because he believes unity is the only way Zimbabweans can break regional and tribal barriers.

Mhere’s larger-than-life performance was preceded by Takesure Zamar Ncube and the Worship Addicts who demonstrated why many believe they will be a force to reckon with in Zimbabwe’s competitive gospel industry.

The group whose song, Prayer for Zimbabwe, has been topping the charts on Power FM led their fans into praying for the nation ahead of the crunch harmonised elections.

Worship Addicts also churned out tracks like Chegumi, Gore Richanakidza and Ndinoshuwira which created a praise and worship mood during the show.

Ncube took the opportunity to perform his track Nyasha, a song from his latest album Worship Addicts Devotional, Volume 3.

At the end of the show Mhere expressed his joy with the way his music has started attracting international recognition.

The 25-year-old gospel star performed in Mozambique at Chimoio Stadium on June 25 at the invitation of the Mozambican government.

Mhere was backed by Bethen Pasinawako-Ngolomi and the Ngolomi brothers Lyton and Brian.

“I was invited by the Mozambican government to grace their independence celebrations. I was stunned by the response I got there. It‘s hard to believe that it was my first time to be in that country; music travels so fast,” said Mhere.
