Manyeruke, gospel stars to perform in Canada

HARARE - Veteran artiste Mechanic Manyeruke is scheduled to leave for Canada this morning along with seven other gospel musicians to do six concerts in the North American country.

Manyeruke is leaving for the month-long Canadian tour with Thembalami, Bethen Pasinawako-Ngolomi, ex-Zimpraise member Primrose Njewa who did the lead vocals on Sungano and the Zimpraise duo of Lloyd Tevedzai and Wellington Kwenda.

The concerts, being organised by Canada-based Jambs Multimedia in conjuction with Eternity Productions,  also includes two of Zimbabwe’s most talented producers, McDonald  “Mcdee” Chidavaenzi and Lyton Ngolomi.

The Zimbabwean gospel musicians will begin the concerts dubbed “Eternity Gospel Festival” in Vancouver on May 31 before heading for the city of Edmonton where they will perform on June 7.

Manyeruke and his gospel music counterparts are scheduled to perform in Calgary on June 13 and in Winnipeg, the capital and largest city of Manitoba, a day later.

The penultimate concert of the “Eternity Gospel Festival” will be held in Toronto on June 21, seven days before the final show set to take place in Montreal.

Bethen, whose husband Lyton Ngolomi is also part of the Canada-bound musicians, told the Daily News yesterday that she is delighted by the prospect of performing outside Africa for the first time.

“I am really looking forward to my maiden tour outside Africa,” said the Ndinzverei singer.

“I have performed in Botswana, Mozambique, Malawi and South Africa but have never performed beyond southern Africa.

“I am looking forward to preaching the word of God through song in an African way during the tour.”

The gospel songbird added that her playlist during the Canadian tour will include new songs particularly a new duet she did with Gospel star Mathias Mhere.
