Hatfield’s United Methodist men’s fellowship gospel music outfit Mufudzi Wakanaka has released a video of the song Masuwo Azarurwa off their second album titled Mwari Mukuru.
This is the group’s debut video since its inception three years ago. The video, which was directed by Rory Studio, was shot in Harare’s suburbs of Hatfield, Waterfalls and Chitungwiza. It is also available on social media platforms, which include Facebook and YouTube.
Mufudzi Wakanaka, which is proving to be a force to reckon with on the local gospel music scene, has travelled throughout the country, performing at memorial services, tombstone unveilings, weddings, funerals and church services.
“Despite the challenges we face, we have managed to soldier on as evidenced by the release of two albums and a video and we hope to do much better when sponsorship comes on board,” said Blessing Mandabva, the group’s spokesperson.
The group has two albums — Nhasi Ngatimutondere (2017), which features the hit track Huvepo HwaMwari, and Mwari Mukuru, which was released last year. The latest album boasts of passionate praise and worship songs thematically rooted in the desire of the Word of God.
Mandabva described the video of the song Masuwo Azarurwa as a must-watch as it acknowledges that only God is the best solution to our challenges.
“People across religions have tried several times to seek temporary solutions elsewhere in place of God, thereby forsaking God who has permanent solutions, hence Masuwo Azarurwa encourages people to rely on Him,” he said.
“Life hasn’t been so rosy for Zimbabweans with many having been haunted by spiritual problems, ill-health and economic challenges which emanate from the desire of the flesh.”
Mandabva encouraged upcoming musicians to release singles as they are easy to market since.
“On most released albums you will notice one or two songs from the whole album becoming hits whilst the rest seem to be recorded to fill the album,” he said.
