Wenyasha bounces back

HARARE - Rising gospel musician Nyasha “Wenyasha” Chingono has released a new single titled Ziso raMwari.

The single, which has a traditional feel, was released yesterday. It is part of a compilation project titled A Taste of Grace which includes re-mastered previously released hits like Jesu Anogona Zvese and Poreswa.

Wenyasha is optimistic that gospel music fans will warm up to the just-released single.

“I am excited about this new single which is a true reflection of who God is, contrary to the judgmental father the world perceives.

“The Bible refers to the eyes of the Lord as always watching over us, so there is no need to fear. In a tough economic environment, it is easy for people to think God has abandoned them, but he hasn’t, he is in control,” Wenyasha told the Daily News.

On the song, Wenyasha, who has in the past collaborated with gospel star Takesure Zamar Ncube, featured veteran Mokoomba guitarist Trust Samende, his brother, Tafadzwa Chingono — a multi-instrumentalist and producer at HitSquad Music Group in Borrowdale as well as Trevor Maisiri on bass.

“I love the energy that the guys had when we did the song and everything we came up with was sincere and heartfelt.

“I believe words should mean something both to God and his people, hopefully Zimbabwe will welcome this unorthodox sound as part of the gospel,” said Wenyasha, who has made the song available for purchase on various platforms.

Wenyasha, who is also a journalist who has written for several local papers, has promised more songs.

“This single was overdue since I last released my album in May last year. I plan to continue releasing singles up to December by the grace of God and also rope in other artists on these songs,” he said.

Wenyasha has had his fair share of success with some of his songs making it onto local charts. He has also held concerts locally and in South Africa.

“South Africa has been welcoming and this year alone I have gone there thrice to perform. I am going back there in November for gigs in Johannesburg,” he said.
