Veteran Sungura musician Leonard Karikoga Zhakata has dismissed reports by a local radio station that he is set to launch a new album later this month.
Zhakata told H-Metro that he will announce the date for the album’s release once everything is in place. He said:
I have not announced any date for my album release, vakomana vesocial media hamheno kuti vazviwanepi.
I will only make an announcement once we are ready.
When preparing for a new album, there are certain challenges that we face as artists so we do not want to mislead our fans by inconveniencing them when we fail to meet the date of expectation.
Yes, I will launch a new album but not on the date that is circulating currently on various social media platforms.
When the date is certain, I will definitely update my fans to prepare for the new album.
