Album: Delayed is not denied
Artist: Pardon Mutsago
ONE does not require a sharp ear for music to app
reciate Pardon Mutsago’s second album coming four years after his debut Mwari Makanaka produced in 2002.
Mutsago bounces back this year with an album bent on quenching the thirst of his growing constituency of fans. The delivery has all the necessary ingredients required of an excellent product.
This R&B gospel package has instrumental synergy, powerful backing vocals and a sound quality of its own, thus taking the genre to greater heights. The title track Delayed is not denied, which gives a message of hope and having faith in Christ during times of despair and vicissitudes, is certainly a contender for the charts.
Another prospective chart-topper is the song Live your dreams, which basically encourages people to live their lives to eventually realise their dreams.
This album containing a host of meaningful songs such as Zvaitwa Nashe, Mbiri Kunashe, Mwari akanaka, I promise and Rivers of Babylon among others, are likely to usher in a new dawn for Mutsago in the gospel music world, albeit as a fully-fledged solo artist. The album is a worthwhile buy. — Staff Writer.
