I'm in my own class — Zulu

HARARE - Marabi musician Kireni Zulu says he does not rush to release albums on a yearly basis as what has become the norm with the majority of artistes as his music is in its own class.

Zulu told the Daily News recently that he sings classic music which no other artiste can follow and succeed; hence he is not in competition.

“My music is classic, it’s only confined to me. Other artistes are losing it because they are in competition but I am different.

“I take as much time as possible working on a new album. I have only seven albums under my name since I ventured into the music industry in 1998 with the debut album Panyika Pano,” he said.

Zulu is set to release his eighth album in September called Prophet Kitwell.

The forthcoming album comprises 10 tracks: Choruma, Dzingai Mweya, Prophet Kitwell, Mukadzi waZondi, Roti, Vana Vangu, Wongorora, Zvaunoita, Judas and Chihera.

Some of his previous albums include Mazai Adhimba, Nyevero, Marabi Music, Mupata Wachidembo and Vhura Chivharo.

Apart from releasing albums, Kireni said he is more into helping upcoming artistes to realise their full potential in the industry.

“I feel I have played my part in the industry and it is high time we as seasoned artistes nurture young talent such that the creative industry will continue moving forward.

“I also enjoy authoring books and I’m happy with the positive response I am getting from my latest novel Miromo Yevakuru,” said Zulu.
