Upcoming gospel musician Khumbulani Shumba is confident that his latest project titled Tinorarama Nekutenda will be a launchpad to a promising gospel music career.

Shumba recently released a five-track album, which he said was made possible by the power of the Almighty.
“It is the great work of the Lord that pushes me to do this. I think this album is a springboard to what I believe is a promising ministering job,” he said.
Shumba, who is a congregant at the Members in Christ Church in Harare, says God helps him, protects him and looks after him, unsolicited. This has compelled him to pen songs thanking him.
“I am now singing gospel music because in 2007 I was involved in a car accident where I saw the hand of God. I sing because I want to thank the Lord for what He has done for me over the years,” he said.
Inspired by South African gospel musicians like the late Sifiso Ncwane and Sipho Makhabane, Shumba, who is backed by the group Hossana Gospel Singers, has released an album titled Tinorarama Nekutenda.
“Last year I received a prophecy from a certain white man who talked about my gifted voice, but I didn’t take it seriously. This year at the Easter conference I received the same prophecy from a different person that has seen me sitting down and writing songs,” he said.
“I am not yet popular, but I hope very soon my music will be played on radio stations,” he said.
Songs on the album, which was produced at Red Diamond Studio, include the title track Power Mighty, Restoration, Church Ziva and He Has the Power.
Shumba says his wish is to share the stage with the big names of gospel music.
“I wish to perform with the giants in gospel music both locally and internationally. I am yet to take my music to the people, but I believe it will have a great impact in the lives of Christians and non-Christian alike.”
