MC Ndombele star continues to shine

HARARE - Master of ceremonies and entertainer Gift “Ndombele” Nyamazana has ventured into music.

Nyamazana has announced his arrival on music stage through the song Time to Celebrate, courtesy of Black Identity studio’s Sungura riddim.

Tomorrow, Ndombele and Ammi Jamanda are set to release a new song called Mwari Ndipeiwo Murume.

“I grew up enjoying the works of Leonard Zhakata and Kanda Bongo Man. On radio, I was inspired by Eric Knight.

“I made a name in m-ceeing, I ventured into music while responding my fans’ call. Currently, I am working on my debut album titled First Time,” Nyamazana said.

Since last year, Nyamazana was a regular component of the weekly programme Jam Session hosted by City Sports Bar in Harare as the MC.

“I work with a number of corporates as MC. Apart from these organisations, I am also invited to MC on social gatherings such as weddings, graduation and birthday parties among others,” he said.

Meanwhile, tonight Nyamazana will be m-ceeing at Jam Session at City Sports Bar in the capital where musicians such as Kessia “Muchaneta” Masona, Jamanda, Tete Pipilo and Progress Chipfumo among others will share the stage paying tribute to the late Sister Rudo.

Jam Session came as a better place where artistes gather and share notes and skills and on average, the event attracts more than 20 performing artistes and this has proved to be a good platform for artistes to network despite entertaining fans.

The concept might sound new to Zimbabwe but jam session has been practised in developed countries since 1920s.

The phrase “jam session” came about in the 1920s when American musicians would congregate after their usual commercial gigs, to play the jazz or music they could not play on stage and this was done for fun.

Musicians will not rehearse for the jam sessions as the musicians would say they were “jammin’ the beat” hence the sessions became known as “jam sessions”.

However, the Zimbabwean version of jam session is slightly different from the American or rest of the world in that local artistes perform their usual songs with the same sound just to entertain fans.
