Fungisai's prodigy launches third record

HARARE - After receiving her apprenticeship under the talented gospel singer Fungisai Zvakavapano-Mashavave, Jennifer Maneni, 27, launched her third music album last Friday in Harare.

Titled His Grace, the 10-track album was launched at Harare Gardens and has potential to scale dizzy heights provided it receives enough promotion. Maneni who provided backing vocals to Fungisai, recorded the album at Legends Studios and produced by Blessing Mchenga.

Plug tracks on the album are Wakatendeka, Buruka Mweya Washe featuring Mashoko Gamanya backed by Witnesses of Jesus, You Raise Me Up, Yahweh featuring CCAP Voices of Sakubva, Mother Prayer, Ndomutenda, Inyasha Kurarama, Ndabvuma, Tivhenekerei and Hamunyare.

Guest of honour at the event, Advocate Lewis Uriri was joined by politician Nelson Chamisa and several artistes that included Trymore Bande and Raymond Chakanyuka.

Maneni told the Daily News on the sidelines during the album launch that it was not easy to come up with a project of this nature. “I am happy that finally the album is out.

“I hope His Grace will go a long way in spreading the message of God while raising my profile as an artiste. The Lord knows my destiny,” she said.

Maneni’s debut album Fambai Neni was released in 2009 while she was still working as a backing vocalist for gospel diva Fungisai before releasing her second offering in 2012 titled Total Recovery.
