To the memory of Jackie Madondo

Her touch and style on the song Mazuva Acho has proved unmatchable for many young gospel musicians.


But Jackie’s fans should have something to smile about as her 26-year-old young sister, Marbel, has taken over from where she left.

Marbel’s 14-track album, titled Faithful and Just, is powerful enough to refresh memories of when Jackie was still alive.

Marbel, who worked with her sister, said the new album is a dedication to her late mentor and inspirer.

“The album was done at Extol Music with one of the most remarkable producers of our time, Joseph Madziyire, who did a splendid job on perfecting the songs,” said Marble.

“Jackie was a wonderful sister whose life became my inspiration. It was hard at first to even sing her songs and it took me seven years to come up with this project, which I believe will go a long way in the music industry.

“We sang together in the group Vessels of Honour and I did the intro part on the hit song Mazuva Acho. We also held shows together.

“Apart from Jackie, I also drew my inspiration from Shingisai Siluma and Dudu Manhenga, to just mention a few.”

Jackie, who died in 2004 at the age of 23, was a promising gospel artist whose music career was cut short. Her combination with Ivy Kombo was a marvel as the two won the hearts of many during their time.

Jackie left two albums, a rendition of Ivy Kombo’s Mufudzi Wangu and her own solo project, Achadzoka. She made headlines with the song Mazuva Acho which was well-received by gospel lovers.

Marbel survived the accident which claimed her sister’s life.
