Gospel, secular music at Harare Gardens

A family show pitting gospel and secular music takes place at Harare Gardens this afternoon.


Pastor Charles Charamba and his wife Olivia will lead the event that will also feature Mathias Mhere and Jah Prayzah.

The Charambas are known to attract huge crowds.

Mhere is slowly becoming active on the live show circuit since hogging the limelight with his song Favour last year. Despite the controversy associated with the originality of the song, Favour is one of Mhere’s most popular songs, that has proved a good sing-along tune. His other song, Chipostora, has also had a fair share of popularity.

Mhere and the Charambas recently shared the stage in Mutare and today’s show will enhance their professional relationship.

The show will be unique because non-gospel fans will have something to look forward to in Jah Prayzah’s performance.

Jah Prayzah is probably the fastest rising local musician and his latest album, titled Tsviriyo, has made him a constant feature at live shows.

“It will be a blessed show. Performing alongside gospel musicians makes this event unique and I am happily looking forward to the show,” said Jah Prayzah.

Mhere said he would take a few notes from the Charambas to improve his stage work.

“They [Charambas] are experienced musicians and every gospel artiste looks to them for advice and tips. I know sharing the stage with the blessed couple will benefit me in a big way.”

Organisers of the show said the unique event was aimed at bringing families together through diverse genres.
