Mahachi video makes breakthrough

HARARE - Rising gospel musician Tatenda Mahachi is happy with the way his latest video Usacheme has made inroads in the region.

The video of the song, which seeks to offer comfort to Zimbabweans being weighed down by the tough prevailing economic conditions, has been played on the DStv channels Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN) and Zambezi Magic.

Mahachi told the Daily News that the exposure the video is getting outside Zimbabwe will help him get more regional recognition.

“I was particularly delighted to be featured on TBN which is the largest faith and family television network in the world. I am told this is the first video in Shona to be played on the channel,” said Mahachi.

The rising gospel artiste, who has collaborated with top stars such as Sfiso Ncwane from South Africa and Prudence Katomeni–Mbofana, added that he was happy because the fairly big investment he made in the video was now paying off.

“I am sure my video is being played because it meets very high technical standards. The video was shot in Durban and Dubai by a Nigerian company Paro Works and it was directed by Captain Blu. I am working on ensuring that it gets played in countries like Ghana and Nigeria,” he said.

The 31-year-old gospel artiste, who is brother to football agent Gibson Mahachi, has produced four albums which include Miyedzo (2007), Kure (2009), Agare (2012) and his latest Declarations where he featured South African gospel star Ncwane.
