Mathias Mhere promises explosive single

Renowned gospel musician Mathias Mhere , who is popular for enchanting fans with his sterling stage performances, yesterday said he was optimistic that his new track, Nhoroondo which is set for release this Friday, will find many takers among gospel music lovers.

Describing it as a celebration track accompanied by its video, Mhere said is a forerunner to his ninth album – Talitha Cumi (Arise Little Girl) which will be released later this year.

Mhere told NewsDay Life & Style that he was confident that the song will force his fans to the dance floor.

“We did our best but it’s up to listeners to rate it. I am, however, optimistic that the track will win the hearts of many. We will launch it on influential Facebook pages with a great following as well as YouTube,” he said. The musician, who is known for his catchy videos, said he was convinced that they did their best in coming up with a gripping track, which will be available on Facebook and YouTube soon after release.

“It’s a song about the uplifting of an individual from the miry clay. It’s about divine intervention. It’s a single coming out this Friday along with its video. We tried to match international standards. It’s a forerunner of my forthcoming album set for end of September or mid-October. It’s
titled Talitha Cumi and it’s my ninth album,” he said.

“The song is just a celebration track. It talks about a person who has gone through untold suffering in the past but then God gave him a new lease of life, so his suffering is now part of history.”

Mhere said through the song, he wants to encourage Zimbabweans who had gone through untold suffering for many years now to hold on to their faith and put their trust in God.

“It’s also an illustration that despite the challenges the nation is facing, people should celebrate because, as the Bible tells us, we are forever victors,” he said. The musician said while COVID-19 had brought devastation across the world, it was important to celebrate what God was doing in many people’s lives.

“We can’t panic or stop praising God because of COVID-19. He lives forever. We are alive during this period of the pandemic because of his grace. He uplifts us in all situations and makes the impossible possible,” he said.

Mhere underscored that he was still able to produce music because they were complying with the COVID-19 protocols. “We recorded freely taking precautions as stipulated by the government. We didn’t face any challenges because we complied with what the government has said.

We also came up with strategies to get things moving,” he said. The Favour hitmaker said: “COVID-19 lockdown has affected us a lot. Public transport, which helped spread our music, is now limited so the marketing has dipped.” Like other innovative musicians, Mhere said they had taken to social media as a way of reconnecting with their fans.

“Social media has come in handy. Everyone is getting music through social media, but lack of shows has affected us a lot financially as well as our interaction with fans. They now have to rely on voice and videos. Under normal circumstances, people would actually pay to meet the artiste backstage after the shows,” he said.
