Nkululeko Innocent Dube, of Iyasa said they had already started working towards fulfilling their goals for 2011.
“We came out of a difficult year in 2010 and we are hoping for the best this year.
“I can say last year our fortune was not material but I think the greatest fortune was the shaping up of our next generation of artistes who have already set tongues wagging.
“As per tradition we will continue unleashing new talent this year. We are also working on a new hit video for the song Imbokodo and probably Bum Jive 4,” said Dube.
He also revealed that they had already started planning for their annual pilgrimage to Europe.
Jeys Majahawodwa Ndlovu of the “eMarabini” fame revealed that 2010 was a good year for him and his group Kozekulunge.
“We really had a good year in terms of music last year and this year we hope it will be even a better one.
“All I can say is watch out for a new album from me and more collaborations,” Ndlovu said.
Khulekani “Khuxman” Bethule said he will be working on three major solo projects this year.
“This year I will be working on three major solo projects. I have already started working on one of the projects which features a variety of artists.
“My work this year will be packaged on DVDs as I want to do away with CDs.
“One of the projects is recording my live DVD,” said Bethule.
It is hoped that this year local artists will get the support from both the corporate world and government.
Last year the local industry took a backstage as foreign acts stampeded to stage shows in the country.
Most promoters preferred to support foreign acts than their local counterparts as shown by the influx of international artists to Zimbabwe.
