Mutambi's Cobra Kings ready to strike again

HARARE - Sungura artiste Simon Mutambi, who landed position two on the 2015 Coca-Cola Radio Zimbabwe Top 50 behind Blessing Shumba, has  promised “another blockbuster sungura album.”

Mutambi told the Daily News that his sixth album titled Zviri Pasi Pedenga was ready for release and would be launched at the City Sports Bar in Harare soon.

“Last year we made a big impact on the music scene. We were on second position on the Coca-Cola Radio Zimbabwe Top 50 as well as being the best sungura band on the charts. Our fifth album Zvese Ndezvako really won the support of Zimbabwean music fans.

“As a result, we do not want to let down our fans hence we are giving them a new offering this month in form of Zviri Pasi Pedenga which will further confirm our status as one of sungura music’s leading lights,” said the Cobra Kings leader.

The Beatrice-based bassist –cum-vocalist, however, added that the launch date of the new album would be announced in a few days’ time.

“Finer details of the launch will be finalised at the end of this week,” he said after giving a polished performance at City Sports Bar’s weekly Jam Session held on Monday where he sampled some of the songs from the forthcoming seven-track album.

One of the songs he performed was the potential hit song Maporofita which urges prophets not to lead Christians astray.

Mutambi also performed his hits such as Mukadzi Akanaka, Kapfupi and Rhoda Mutsvuku much to the delight of the fairly big crowd.

The former Zimbabwe Music Crossroads protégé shared the stage with Kireni Zulu, Ngosimbi Crew, Zhekezheke Express, Dhibhura, Chirandu, Top Sungura, Progress Chipfumo, Tete Pipilo, Benjamin Chidewe and Nyasha Mugari at the City Sports Bar’s weekly Jam Session.

Ex-Marxist Brothers band manager Mugari showed the audience why many believe he will be a force to reckon with on the dendera music scene. He performed songs off his debut album Discovered backed by his group The Uncrackables.
