Makurumure turns to rock

HARARE - R ‘n’ B musician and former Star Brite winner Trust Makurumure of Ethnic Worship has released a single track titled Hossana.

The single is more of soft rock music. The song was primarily composed for an international audience.

“It does not mean I am abandoning my local fans but I am trying also to penetrate the international market,” Makurumure said.

“Hossana is a throne room song that declares the greatness of Jesus Christ and His majesty. It is a melody from my heart, a symphony sang by my soul.”

The Ethnic Worship front man has a number of songs under his belt including the seven track R ‘n’ B album Simply Released.

Some of the songs on Simply Released include Wakosha, Dai, Tomudana and Rudo Rwake among others.

Makurumure stormed the cut-throat music industry through the group Messengers of Hope.  With his help, Messengers of Hope released two albums Ebenezer in 2002 and Its Possible in 2009.

Makurumure derives his inspiration from international gospel artistes. “I grew up listening to international musicians such as J Moss and Pride Priestly of United States of America,” he said.

“Locally, I was inspired by artistes like Oliver Mtukudzi and Shingisai Suluma,” he said.

To make sure that the gospel reaches every corner of the country, the artiste urged local broadcasting companies to support  upcoming musicians. “Young musicians like us seriously need air play. Local radio stations should support and encourage musicians by allocating them a fair share of air play. We are against the idea of only playing prominent artistes,” he said.
