Gospel musician Mathias Mhere has collaborated with his supposed rival, Blessing Shumba on a song titled “Driver Wehupenyu”.
Mhere told the Daily News that the single is off his forthcoming album and is his first-ever duet with Shumba. He said:
I will be dropping the single before the album. It will come as a precursor to the album which will be out in June.
… The issue of voices has been raised on different occasions and I believe this song will show how we celebrate the differences in our voices. In fact, if we had similar voices, then there would be no reason to combine on this song.
Mhere’s latest album, “Greater Than Solomon” was released on 21 June last year, a few weeks after the death of his brother, with the first track, “Chipangamazano” dedicated to him.
Meanwhile, Shumba also released his latest album last year, titled “The Psalmist”.
