Charamba, 'copycat' to share stage

HARARE - Charles Charamba and gospel music rookie Trymore Bande, who recently clashed over the latter’s mimicking of the Machira Chete singer’s music, will share the stage on April 13 during the Chipaz Promotions 10th Anniversary celebrations.

Charamba reported Bande to the police soon after the upcoming musician released his latest album called Zvakagara Zvakadaro in December last year. Despite the fallout, Bande told the Daily News yesterday that he was looking forward to the Gwanzura Stadium event.

“I can’t wait to be part of this event. Actually I am ecstatic to share the stage with him (Charamba) after such a long time,” he said.

“The event is also going to clear confusion surrounding my album. A lot of people wrongly attribute it to the Charambas so the Chipaz concert will enable the fans to know that it is my project.”

The Honde Valley-born Bande has also promised to unveil a new backing band during the Chipaz commemorative gig.

“I am going to play with a full band on the day and this is a positive development in my career,” he said.

The 28-year-old Bande has four albums under his name: Old and New Testament, Discover To Recover, The Scriptures and Zvakagara Zvakadaro. His latest album, produced by Lyton Ngolomi, comprises songs like Uchandiramba Peter, Muimba YaMwari, Kuri Kwedu, Zvataungana, Nhowo Yangu, Pharaoh and Madhara Ekereke.

Apart from Bande and Charamba, the Chipaz Promotions 10th Anniversary Concert will also feature several leading gospel singers including Mathias Mhere, Blessing Shumba, Sabastian Magacha, Fungisayi Zvakavapano-Mashavave and Mechanic Manyeruke.

@Innocent Chokureva, hazvidi kubva watevedzera nevoice nemo nemo. I heard one of the songs and I said what is this! I hope he will quickly "branch out" like Mathias Mhere who branched out from Blessing Shumba.
