Sungura musician Tatenda Pinjisi aka Spanner Boy says he has shelved the release of his second album Inguva Yenyasha to allow him to reconnect with his legion of followers through a series of shows.

Pinjisi was a nonentity on the local music scene until he released his debut album Rumbidzo Kumusiki, which carried the hit track Saina at the end of 2015.
A former rhythm guitarist with Gift Amuli’s Zvishavane Sounds, Pinjisi feels he needs time to meet his fans before he releases his second project — a seven-track album.
“My fans know my music, especially the song Saina but they don’t know me. I was advised that I should do a number of live shows before I release my second album,” he said.
Spanner Boy, as he is affectionately known, believes reconnecting with music fans was the missing link. The musician now performs every Thursday at Dandaro Inn at the Exhibition Park and also has slots at Veritas Night Club in Eastlea and Mukanya Sports Bar in Crowborough.
“Visibility is key in the music industry and one way of doing it is taking music to the people, which is what I am doing,” he said.
Pinjisi was supposed to release his second album on Thursday, but said he would soon announce the day of the album launch.
Currently riding high with the track Saina, Pinjisi is sampling some of the songs from the forthcoming offering during live shows.
Apart from Saina, Pinjisi’s other songs from his debut album, Masimba, Mweya Waneta and Masunika Shangu were hits.
