Gospel musician Patience Masiyambiri-Mandizha will release her fourth album titled Ndiye Mwari on August 2 at the Christ Unveiling Ministries International in Harare.
Ndiye Mwari was recorded at Limitless Studio, Eternity Studio and Room 19 Studio, under the watchful eyes of Trust Samende, Wisdom Nyaparami and Tawanda Tehila Midzi respectively.
Masiyambiri-Mandizha’s other albums include Nguva Yareba, Mumoyo Mangu and Mirira.
Daughter of gospel musician Mai (Beath) Masiyambiri, Masiyambiri-Mandizha told Standard Style that the message “is about bringing out the appraisal of God and His power”, hence giving it the title Ndiye Mwari.
“When I look at my life, it can only be God who has put me where I am. His grace has made me what I am today and I am very grateful. From this album, I am giving my fans the gospel and by gospel I mean to say the good news from God,” she said.
The ZimPraise protégé said the album carries seven tracks, including a bonus track titled Ndezvedu, a redo of a ZimPraise choral piece.
“All the other six songs are totally new on the market and will be uploaded on the Buddie Beatz application first before any other platform,” Masiyambiri-Mandizha said.
“Every minute-listenership on Buddie Beatz generates revenue to us and we have worked well with Buddie Beatz for the past two-years, with our music doing well on the Caller Back Ring tones.”
She promised her fans to look out for videos from the forthcoming album and one or two from her third album Mirira, which she said had one video on YouTube.
Mirira was first released as a single and featured on a 10-track compilation album titled New Generation that also features Pastor Stanley Gwanzura and Thembalami. The single was produced by MacDonald Chidavaenzi.
“Mostly my songs have been played on Star FM on Gospel Great Charts, with songs like Mirira and Uchanyaradzwa being frequently played, while Hunhu Wehutsvene is being played a couple of times on Power FM,” she said.
“My fans should expect a different taste from me this time as the forthcoming album is mixed with a bit of jazz.”
Managed by her husband, Farai Mandizha, Masiyambiri-Mandizha has backed Pastor Olinda Marowa, Kudzi Nyakudya and Bethany Pasinawako-Ngolomi.
