Music talent runs in Mutsvene family

HARARE - Surely, music runs in the Mutsvene family.

Kuda Mutsvene brother to controversial gospel diva Mercy, has released his debut album entitled Chirangano.

The album carries six gospel tracks that include Chirangano featuring Sebastian Magacha, Ngarivongwe, Mhururu featuring Mercy Mutsvene, Wamilele, Pamhidza and Turning Around.

If Chirangano is adequately promoted it has a potential to go a long way in maintaining the Mutsvene musical legacy.

Despite releasing his debut album this year, Mutsvene is not new to the music industry.

“I did music at Zimbabwe College of Music in Harare for two years and I am able to play all musical instruments.

“Soon after graduating with a certificate in musicology in 2011, I became a music director.

“I directed my sister’s (Mercy) music and that’s when I was discovered by Zimpraise gospel choir,” said the 21-year-old artiste.

With Zimpraise, Mutsvene shared the stage with a number of South African artistes such as Solly Mahlangu.

“While I was part of the Zimpraise choir, I worked with a number of artistes including Freeman (dancehall musician) and AFM church choir among others as a music director,” he said.

Mutsvene, the son of a pastor with Apostolic Faith Mission church, then left Zimpraise gospel choir and joined Sebastian Magacha’s band as a backing vocalist.

“With Saba (Magacha) we toured a number of countries such as the United States of America and Canada among others. Even today I am still part of Saba’s group,” he said.

Mutsvene told the Daily News that despite releasing an album, he remains loyal to Magacha.

“Saba was very supportive from the beginning and I am still loyal to him and I do not have any plans to leave the group.

“On his live shows, he often gave me a platform to showcase my talent,” said Mutsvene.
