Actress ventures into music

HARARE - Multi-talented Dalma Chiwereva, who has excelled as a dancer and actress, is now into music.

Chiwereva collaborated with popular music producer Tapiwa “Maselo” Jera on a just-released song titled “Male Male” which is attracting a lot of air play on local radio stations.

Chiwereva, who is set to embark on a three-month-long European tour with actress Getrude Munhamo as part of a cast of the play “Lamentations @ 12,” is convinced that the song, produced by  Sunshine, will kick-start a successful music career.

“This is the first song I have recorded even though I have previously done backing vocals for Energy Mutodi.

“The truth is I have always been good at acting, dancing and singing. I therefore think Male Male (street lingo for money) is the beginning of a great music journey,” said Bulawayo-born Chiwereva.

She added that they will release more songs this year.

“More songs accompanied by videos are definitely coming. Monday (today) we will drop the Male Male video which was produced by Naxo Films.

“I enjoy making songs, acting and dancing and these three will not put me under pressure at all.

“Creating the right balance won’t be a problem. Remember I once worked with Energy Mutodi as a backing vocalist while pursuing a marketing course and featuring in plays and films at the same time,” said Chiwereva, who featured in the film “Lobola” alongside the likes of Munya Chidzonga.

Interestingly, Male Male is also the first official single for Maselo, who made a name for himself as a producer for Andy Muridzo.

“I have always had a talent for singing but I was waiting for the right time to record my first song. It has always been my dream to create a group similar in style to popular South African bands like Mafikizolo and Malaika.

“I took my time to scout for the right partner. In the end, I settled for Dalma -a talented vocalist better known as a dancer and actress. I am confident that Male Male and the songs we will do thereafter will pleasantly surprise music fans,” said Maselo.
