Mahachi recently surprised all and sundry when he was crowned among the crème de la crème at the Zimbabwe Top Business Brands. The musician walked away with the Gospel Music Development Services award.
In December the Ndisiye hitmaker won the Creative Market Penetration Leadership Excellence Acumen award at the Zimbabwe Business Awards. Several other artistes, including songbird Cindy Munyavi, comedians Comic Pastor and Tyra “Madam Boss” Chikoko as well as gospel musician Mudiwa “Hood” Mtandwa, were honoured.
“Thank you, God, for so many incredible blessings that we have in our lives,” Mahachi told The Standard Style.
“I am so grateful and I am so blessed.”
The talented singer has received a number of awards and nominations for his contributions to the music industry.
“The Bible in James 1 verse 2 says, ‘Blessed is the man who perseveres under trial, because when he has stood the test, he will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him’,” Mahachi said.
“I am so excited about these achievements. To me, these awards will motivate me and it’s good to know that the corporate world appreciates my work. I dedicate the award to my fans and I would like to thank the Zimbabwe Business Awards for such an initiative.”
Mahachi late last year sang at the launch of Abathandwa Music Group’s album at Durban Christian Centre in South Africa where he gave a five-star performance.
His collaboration with music superstar Oliver Mtukudzi titled Ndisiye is doing well on local radio stations’ gospel charts.
