Second video release for 'Ebenezer'

HARARE - After assessing impact of hit song Ebenezer against its video, the South Africa-based gospel artiste Toggy Chivaviro was forced to re-do the video to match the standards of the multi- award winning track.

Tonight, Chivaviro is unveiling second video of his Ebenezer (Tiri Munyasha), at Anglican Cathedral Garden in the capital.

The new production has been added as a bonus video on Mhepo Inoperekedza DVD which will also be unveiled tonight together with two Christian books, Interpreting Your Own Dreams (God Is Still Speaking) and Unlimited Grace by his wife Juliet.

“I was not quite impressed by the quality of the first video, though people liked it — evidenced by the number of hits which are reaching a million on You Tube, probably classifying it among the first all-Zimbabwe videos to reach a million hits on the social network platform.

“The impact of the song was not tallying with the quality of the video . . . more so I wanted something that involves fans.

Chivaviro, though declined to reveal figures, told the Daily News that he has invested a lot in the new video.

“The video was shot in countries such as Botswana and Zimbabwe as the song proved to be a hit in a number of countries.

“I have changed videographers but managed to retain all the artistes I have collaborated with on the song and these include Charles Charamba, Bethen Pasinawako-Ngolomi, Rumbi Zvirikuzhe, Kudzi Nyakudya, Mechanic Manyeruke, Noel Zembe and Pastor Lawrence Haisa among others.

“However, we still recognise our first video but the second one was meant for quality oriented people.

“I strongly feel the song has made an impact internationally hence it should be complimented by a good video,” he said.
