Stars lend class to Dondo's debut album

HARARE - Upcoming musician Sam Dondo is confident that his debut album to be launched on Friday at Alexandra Sports Club will make an immediate impact thanks to the quality of the stars who contributed to it.

Several prominent artistes, who include Suluman Chimbetu, Jah Prayzah, producer-cum-keyboardist Munyaradzi Viali and highly-rated South Africa-based sound engineer/producer Keith Farquharson, participated in the production of the album titled Dyara Minamato.

“There is no a better stepping stone than starting with the help of seasoned artistes who really know virtually every corner in the music field.

“The experience I have garnered so far is quite amazing, I strongly believe that their help has made my music journey smooth,” said the 30-year-old artiste.

He added that working with the seasoned artistes boosted his creativity and confidence.

“I believe the album is a good project. I enjoy every minute of it. The fact that I worked with veterans in the field made my task a little easier,” said the leader of the Impala Subway Crooners.

The music rookie is particularly grateful to Suluman for making him a supporting act at his gigs.

“When Suluman asked me to support him at his concerts, I did not immediately warm up to the idea but I later realised that he was preparing me for the stage,” he told the Daily News.

Dyara Minamato was recorded and produced at Viali Studios after which it was sent to South Africa where ex-Ilanga member Farquharson did the mixing and mastering.

On Friday at Alexandra Sports, music fans will get the chance to judge the upcoming musician’s hyped debut project.

The album launch will feature Sungura ace Alick Macheso, music superstar Oliver Mtukudzi, crowd-puller Jah Prayzah, Suluman and self-styled Zimdancehall president Winky D.
