'I preach God's word through song'

HARARE - Marketer, Plaxedes Meck, who released her debut 10-track-gospel-album called Kurangarirwa Nedenga last week is confident the project has potential to scale dizzy heights in showbiz provided it gets adequate promotion it deserves.

The passion to spread the Word of God to all corners of the world has inspired Meck to come up with such a polished project.

“It was always my wish to preach the word of God through songs as music travel fast as compared to other forms of media and I hope the album will go a long way in fulfilling my desire,” Meck said.

Songs making the album are Zarurai Meso Angu, Ndovimba naMwari Wangu, Vandiyeuka, Mutsvene, Tachengetwa, Glory, Moyo Munyoro, Mwari Vanokomborera, Mashoko Amai and a bonus track in called Pamuchinjikwa.

The track Mashoko Amai — according to Meck is a dedication to all mothers in the world.

“Mothers play a crucial role in fostering Ubuntu and Christian norms and values in their children hence they should be applauded for that. It is not a simple task,” the mother of five said.

Meck, a fourth born in a family of eight told the Daily News that she will apply her marketing skills to promote her project.

“As a person with an in-depth knowledge of marketing products, I will do my level best to promote the album such that it can reach every corner of the country if not world.

“I am not into music to generate income but it is part of my contribution to the kingdom of God,” she said.

As part of efforts to promote the album, Meck said she is working on videos.

“Most people now prefer DVDs for both audio and visuals hence we are working on it,” she said.

On the album recorded at Sunshine studios, Meck roped in the services of her husband Daniel— brother to celebrated bassist Josh Meck — on production and bass.

She described the album as a dream come true.

“My husband was the backbone of this project and I really thank him for commitment and support in making my dream come true,” she said.
