Bethen collaborates with ex-Macheso chanter

HARARE - Gospel artiste Bethen Pasinawako-Ngolomi featured Jonasi Kasamba, a former chanter in Alick Macheso’s Orchestra Mberikwazvo, on the track Ngavararame that will be part of the popular star’s forthcoming album.

Bethen was impressed by the contribution of the Congolese chanter and is convinced that the soon-to-be-released album will help her return to the top table of local gospel music.

“All is set for my fourth album which is an eight-track project. If all goes according to plan, the album will be released within a fortnight,” said the Ndinzverei hit-maker.

The 30 year old artiste, who is married to top gospel producer Lyton Ngolomi, however, ruled out the launch of the album due to financial constraints.

Potential hits on the forthcoming album include Mupendero, Hama Namata, My Papa, Avo and Ndidzidzisei.

“On the song My Papa I was referring to God in Heaven. I know people might think I was referring to new crop of prophets who are called by the same title,” she told the Daily News.

Bethen has confidence in the album that was recorded and produced at Lyt-ON studios by her husband.

“I last released an album in 2011 and since then I was working on and perfecting this forthcoming album. I have confidence in this project,” said the Mufakose-bred artiste whose three albums are Aripo, Anotida and Anesu Jesu.

Apart from perfecting the pending album, Bethen has been busy running her music project called Bethen Music World that seeks to nurture talented girl children in different communities. Launched in 2010, the initiative has produced artistes like upcoming gospel artiste Samantha Chivasa.

Bethen has also provided backing vocals to award-winning artistes like Blessing Shumba and Mathias Mhere who were produced by her husband.
