Pastor G celebrates career with live DVD shoot

HARARE - Gospel star Stanley “Pastor G” Gwanzura will celebrate his 15 years in music with a live DVD shoot at 7 Arts Theatre on Saturday.

The gentle giant of Zimbabwean gospel music, whose debut album Tariro was released in 2000, is celebrating an illustrious career that saw him releasing 11 albums.

Pastor G, who recorded his first live DVD album in 2007, told the Daily News that the weekend event is meant to thank God and his music fans for helping him become a respectable gospel artiste.

“I thank God for guiding me over the past 15 years and making me believe that nothing can stop me but myself,” said the Tidings of Love singer.

The forthcoming live 14-track DVD album titled Unstoppable Rhythm, Worship, Praise Experience will be produced by gospel music star Shingisai Suluma’s former producer, Tafadzwa Chingono, David Sengwayo and United States of America-based Simba Moyo.

“The three are all upcoming producers. I like giving young producers a chance because they are acquainted with new trends,” said Pastor G.

“We are still finalising the tracks to appear on the live DVD album but it will feature tracks like Unstoppable, Munopindira, Munotonga, and a traditional hymn medley for the older folk.”

The Mabiribobi hit-maker added that live DVD recordings are becoming trendy because they give an artiste the opportunity to interact with fans.

“Live recordings are more engaging because they enable an artiste to connect with fans.

“Countries like South Africa have really taken DVD recordings to the next level,” he said.

In keeping with Pastor G’s well-known slant towards young gospel artistes, the veteran artiste has roped in Zimpraise singer, Petronella Sengwayo, Imelda Mudzamiri, the Sunshine City Choir and the popular Sebastian Magacha to rev up excitement during his special event.

“I would like to encourage my fans to come and spend more time with me.

“It will be a great day for us to interact. There will be a lot of entertainment from other popular musicians who will help me perform on the day,” said Pastor G.
