Mutare-based gospel artist, Blessing Shumba is set to launch a 12 track album, Ndimweya, this Thursday at the Zimbabwe College of Music in Harare.
Shumba said the music industry is not a stroll in the park and that it takes perseverance and focus to be successful in the industry.
Speaking on the sidelines of the Ring Driving School ISO 9001:2015 certification ceremony in Harare on Friday, Shumba said:
This music industry is not that easy as many would want to believe. It is not easy to be listened to by people and later have your music played on the radio.
It took me almost 12 years to be on the map, so one has to be focused on the call and not what will be happening in life or what people will be saying about you.
If you want to be a gospel artiste who ministers through music, you have to be a Christian who walks the talk from your music as it is not easy to sing gospel music when one is not involved in it.
We are happy that we are presenting something new to our fans this Thursday as we launch our seventh album Ndimweya here in Harare before taking it home to Mutare.
Shumba said that the message of his new offering is all about how the Holy Spirit influences the lives of believers. He added that the album is an audio Bible which must heal people’s souls.
