Willom Tight's album released

HARARE - After four years of waiting, Afro-fusion singer Willom Tight’s album titled M.a.n.i.f.e.s.t.o has finally been released by South Africa-based Shamiso Music and Entertainment run by Zimbabwean banking executive Gilbert Muvavarirwa.

The Ndinoda Wangu singer, who is four years into a 10-year contract with the South Africa-based music label, confirmed the release of the 14-track album.

“Yes it is out now and is available on ITunes,” was all he could say when the Daily News contacted him.

According to Shamiso Music and Entertainment chief executive Muvavarirwa, African Paradox — the lead single of Willom Tight’s album was released on December 1.

“African Paradox featuring Uhuru and Salif Keita was released on the first of December on iTunes and 49 other online platforms for sale.

“The album was released on December 12,” he said.

M.a.n.i.f.e.s.t.o. featured more than eight artistes from across Africa who include Salif Keita (Mali), Runtown (Nigeria), Lando Dhlamini (Swaziland), Max Vidima and Jairos Hambahamba (Zimbabwe), DJ Clap, DJ Maphorisa, Bongo Riot, Speedy, Xelimpilo, Selimane,DJ Nova and Uhuru (South Africa.)

Tracks on the album include Baba (intro), Ndapera (Hey wena), Jakwara, Money, Chiwororo, Invited, Have you seen her, African Paradox (House Version), Baba, Ndewangu (Ndoni yamanzi), Munosara Nani and My Afri.

The release of M.a.n.i.f.e.s.t.o should come as a big relief to Willom Tight who has been unable to work with other music stables due to his 10-year contract with Shamiso Entertainment.

Born Wilbroad Muponda, Willom Tight began his musical career in 1993 with the band Bisa’s Combination which he left after two years.

He formed the group Zimjam with Edgar Langeveldt and Razika Katumba but the band lasted for only two years after which he teamed up with Mateo of Pamuhacha fame Patience Musa.

Willom Tight grabbed national attention with the album Ndinoda Wangu in 2000 before releasing another scorcher Hodzeko in 2003.

His other albums are Kuza Ngoma (2008) and Chinyerere (2011).
