Chivaviro opens SA market

HARARE - As Ebenezer singer Toggy Chivaviro continues to promote and assist local gospel artistes in new markets, over the weekend he held joint concerts with award-winning Mutare-based artiste Blessing Shumba in South Africa.

The concerts were held in Pretoria and Germiston on April 9 and 10 respectively and meant to popularise the two artistes’ new albums.

Shumba recently released the album Calvary while Chivaviro launched two albums last month in Harare; Mhepo Inoperekedza and Tsitsi Dzake Ihuru.

“Shumba has not often ministered in Mzansi, hence this show is a rare occasion for him. The audience that attended the show were uplifted,” said Chivaviro.

Mhepo Inoperekedza is made up of eight tracks and these are Zvichanaka, Mhepo Inoperekedza, Mercy Re-wrote My Life, Handinyarare, Chikomborero, Vana Mai Varopafadzwe, Peace, Hope and Love, and Mhepo Inoperekedza, an instrumental version.

Some of his previous albums include Peace, Hope and Love (1999), Power (2000), Best of Rev TT Chivaviro (2006), The Return (2009), Ishe Taungana (2013) and Ebenezer Tiri Munyasha (2015) among others.

The South Africa-based preacher said he will continue inviting gospel artistes to South Africa as a way of promoting their music.

“Recently, we had Mechanic Manyeruke, Kudzi Nyakudya and Trymore Bande. More than 15 artists and groups have now performed in South Africa since 2010 and these include Vabati Vevhangeri, Rumbi Zvirikuzhe, Noel Zembe, Pastor Haisa, Munyaradzi Munodawafa, Gospel Power, Joel Maphosa, Tatenda Mahachi, Danny Pfawai, Gift Mahlupeka, Gamu Magadzire and others,” he said.
