Progress Chipfumo, Ras Caleb collaborate

HARARE - Ras Caleb and Afro-fusion musician Progress Chipfumo, who are currently in the United Kingdom, have collaborated on a reggae song titled Ndimi Jah that is set to be released soon.

The two musicians, who are part of a group of local musicians who include Diana Samkange, Don Gaga and Ninja Lipsy, currently on tour in the United Kingdom, recorded the song in the English town of Wigan.

“I am currently in Wigan in the United Kingdom (UK) where I am recording new tracks and videos. I have got a new track coming up featuring Progress Chipfumo and Don Gaga produced by a former guitarist in Thomas Mapfumo’s Blacks Unlimited Zivai ‘Zee’ Guveya.

“We are also shooting videos for my debut album titled Rascal’s Manuscript that I released in October last year as well as several singles I have recorded since then,” Ras Caleb told the Daily News.

The Masvingo-born musician, whose real name is Caleb Tereka, added that their tour of the United Kingdom dubbed “One Nation, One People,” being promoted by Afrodayz Productionz in-conjunction with Bimmaseve and Tafara Care Services, was going according to schedule. The tour is being spearheaded by United Kingdom-based DJ, Beauty Mufamba, who is better known as DJ Lady Bimma.

“We have held successful concerts since the beginning of December and we killed it in Manchester on the 26th and on the 31st in Dunstable, London.

“We have been performing in the UK courtesy of Afrodayz Productionz. We have already performed in Manchester, Birmingham, Luton and Leeds. We hope to hold our last shows in the UK this weekend in Leicester and Sheffield,” said the rising reggae singer.

Ras Caleb was a fairly an unknown singer before he released the socially-conscious hit Tokwe Mukosi which transformed him almost overnight into a nationally-acclaimed star.

After Tokwe Mukosi he went on to release other songs like Mutoro, Sisy Rosy, Toropito, Ndouya, to mention just a few. In October last year, Ras Caleb, who studied journalism in South Africa, released his maiden 10-track album titled Rascal’s Manuscript.
