Acapella group records first single

HARARE - They are fairly new to the acapella music genre but that has not deterred a nine-member group called Good Six (G6) from entertaining big dreams.

The Harare-based group, who recorded their first single titled Ndimi Matendera early this year, are increasingly drawing the attention of Zimbabwean gospel music fans beyond their usual assignments at church weddings.

“We are happy with how we are progressing,” said G6 member Arnold Mudhovozi.

“We named it the (G6) because God created everything in six days and rested on the seventh day.”

Apart from Mudhovozi, G6 also includes Chris Matope, Tafadzwa Mukungunugwa, John Chiriga, Aquilla Lunga, Victor Chiriga, Reward Gwashure, Leroy Tatenda Mupita and Fungai Chagwedera.

“Since our formation two years ago we only managed to record our first single Ndimi Matendera early this year which was accompanied by two extras Heavens Fall and Uyabizwa.  We are confident we have what it takes to redefine acapella and gospel music in Zimbabwe,” Mukungunugwa told the Daily News.

He believes Ndimi Matendera will be good enough to put the new group in the spotlight.

“We hope the single will make many gospel fans know what we are all about.

“Our main wish though is to spread the word of God through music.

“Our wish is to reach each and every soul so that they know that God exists. Our main purpose is to minister the word of God through music,” added Mukungunugwa.

G6 has shared the stage at acapella concerts with such groups as Stand, The Family, Firm Faith, Thee Assembled and a Bulawayo group called The Conquerors7.

The Harare acapella gospel group will launch their maiden album in early March next year after which they will hold several shows to market the album.
