The tracks are accompanied by two others that were on her husband’s debut album titled Prayer Expose.

According to the songstress, she will be releasing new singles that will culminate in the launch of her debut solo project with a working title, Grace Moments.

Hossana is a new dance and praise sound fused with different musical facets that make it a force to reckon with on the contemporary front.
Its chorus is catchy, while the mixture of languages and beats will appeal across ages, a skill that she says is also on the other seven tracks that are on the same album.

“In some of the songs we mixed Shona, English, Chewa, French and Lingala,” she said.

Her husband, Charles, though mainly in the background, dominates the rhythms with his Marimba on both songs, clearly making it the trademark of the couple’s music.

Both were formerly with Oliver Mtukudzi’s Black Spirits before they deserted him over payments.

The experience they got from their stint with Tuku makes their sound seemingly familiar because of the vocals while certainly distinct due to the arrangement of their music.

What is also striking on the new tracks is Namatayi’s ability to strike a pitch with unimaginable simplicity exhibiting her immense talent.

Handikendenge is a song encouraging Christians to pray.

It comes with a slower tempo while the unmistakable “Tuku” experience is also evident in the composition of the instrumentation.

Although its title Handikendenge is quite catchy, the song’s tempo somewhat moistens the song as compared to Hossana.

And the musician concedes the album is going to be dominated by dance songs.

She said Hossana and Handikendengi have done well but refused to call them the best from the album.

“We are going to be releasing singles till we release the album in August,” she said.
“Of course the tracks we have so far released are receiving overwhelming responses but people should just watch out for what is coming as they will definitely enjoy.”
