Macheso collaborates with Daiton's son

HARARE - Sungura ace Alick Macheso who doubles as a humanitarian ambassador for Red Cross Zimbabwe is featuring on the forthcoming debut album of Daiton Somanje’s son, Faheem.

Somanje confirmed the development to the Daily News saying all is promising well.

“Macheso is featuring on two songs and we are about to record the album. We have since been rehearsing and all is promising to be fine,” Somanje said.

However, the album is yet to be titled.

Orchestra Mberikwazvo manager Lucky Macheso also confirmed the development.

“We are not certain how many songs Macheso is going to feature but he has since confirmed the development,” Macheso.

The Gungwa hit maker is helping the rookie artiste find his feet by giving him an opportunity to play as a supporting act at his concerts.

It seems Macheso has a soft spot for upcoming artistes as he has promoted musicians such as Tryson Chimbetu, Progress Chipfumo, Tendai Dembo and Sounds of the Muddy Face when they launched their careers.

He went on to collaborate with Chimbetu on Nguva YaChimbetu on the song Vegetables as a way of grooming and boosting confidence in the young artiste.

Macheso’s stance in promoting upcoming artistes has inspired different people in society including businessman Regis Munenzwa who is set to build an entertainment joint in his rural area (Mhondoro) to develop hidden talent.

“I learnt a lot from Macheso. He knows how to promote upcoming artistes especially the marginalised.

“He also gives small bands a platform to shine and market themselves at his concerts when they perform as supporting acts and I view it as promotion par excellence.

“As a result, I have discovered a lot of musical talent in Mhondoro where I come from.

“I need to play my part by building a joint where they can perfect their stage skills before coming to big towns like Harare,” Munenzwa said.

“The complex which will house a night club, restaurant and a supermarket among other facilities will be complete by October and we are going to invite Macheso to officially open it.

“I am going to pay all the artistes especially from Mhondoro to perform at the joint,” Munenzwa said.
