Lupane gospel musician releases debut album

LUPANE - Lupane born gospel musician Proud Zuza Moyo, has released his debut album as he seeks to carve his own niche in the already flooded industry.

Moyo who is now based in South Africa, is however unfazed by the number of gospel musicians who are in the industry preferring to say he was here to leave a mark.

“I know it’s not going to be an easy journey, but the fact that I have managed to come up with my first project is proof enough about my determination,” Moyo whose backing group is Nezinceku zeNkosi, said.

“I am very confident that given proper setting and enough resources I can do better in this industry,” he said.

His new album is titled Awulazi and carries 12 tracks including Uma kwenzeka, Sawuli, Emabandleni, Hamba and the title track Awulazi among others.

Moyo narrated his musical aspirations history.

“I am from Lupane I started music in church choir as I was growing up and that’s how far my love for gospel music comes from.

“I however, left Zimbabwe in 2004 for South Africa and in 2007 I started composing my music but I didn’t record it because I had no money, but I later got in the studio to record my first album everything went successfully,” Moyo said.

Moyo who is inspired by the veteran South African gospel musician Elias Shongwe said his mission was to win souls through music as well as provide quality entertainment.

But besides Shongwe, Moyo is also inspired by Derrick Ndzimande, Knowledge Nkiwane and local-based musician Pastor Jedmos Moyo.

He says his favourite song is the title track, Awulazi.

“It simply tells us that the person seated next to you must not be taken for granted since you never know what he or she will become tomorrow. More orphans are being neglected yet if taken care of they may be great leaders tomorrow.”
