Guspy Warrior returns to Harare

HARARE - Zimdancehall artiste Emmanuel “Guspy Warrior” Manyeruke, who has hardly performed in Harare over the last few months, will bounce back in the capital tonight with a gig at City Sports Bar.

The son of veteran gospel musician Mechanic Manyeruke will perform as part of the weekly Afribbean Nights Show which will also feature Chillspot’s Fantan and Levels as well as Jah Bless and Mr Nicetime.

Guspy Warrior told the Daily News that he has spent the last few months performing and popularising his music across the country.

“There is a lot of competition in big cities such as Harare, that is why I have been staging concerts mostly away from the capital city over the last few months and the response was overwhelming.

“I have realised that Zimbabwe is big and performing outside Harare is more profitable because there isn’t a lot of competition out there,” said the Chitungwiza-born artiste.

Guspy Warrior is best known for the hit Seunononga which was regarded by many as the best song of 2014.

The Zimdancehall star is confident that his latest single will propel him back to the top again.

“Ghetto youths have fallen in love with the track Jose because it relates to everyone’s situation. I strategically crafted the lyrics to suit each and every ghetto youth and I am happy that the trick has worked,” he said.

He, however, conceded that achieving the heights scaled by Seunononga, off the album Handikwanise Kuzvitaura, won’t be a stroll in the park.

“Songs are like children, each is differently blessed even though all are children,” he said.

So popular was Seunononga that at one point it became a crucial component of every party, in commuter omnibuses and night clubs.

The song has taken him to another level in the showbiz world.

Apart from singing and performing, Guspy Warrior is also a music producer. He produced several singles by Zimdancehall star Winky D and Mic Inity’s debut album titled Freedom.

“I feel delighted when producing for artistes such as Winky D, Mic Inity, Freeman and Dadza D because these artistes are my role models,” he said.
