South Africa-based Zimbabwean gospel musician Rhodha January (pictured) has dropped her debut single titled Ndovimba Nemi, which she says is paving way for her first album later in the year.
January (36), who has been a backing vocalist for a number of gospel musicians among them her husband Victor Sibiya, has embarked on a solo musical journey through the release of the single that has seen her called to minister at many churches in Pretoria and other places in Mzanzi.
The Redcliff-born songstress is currently working on her debut album with the help of Sibiya who has four albums to date.
“I am happy that I dropped my first piece of work in July that is doing well on online platforms,” January said.
“The single has opened doors for me here in South Africa as I am called to minister at churches through singing. My wish is to drop an album as I embark on a solo music career having
been a backing vocalist for others,” she said.
January started singing at a tender age and was inspired by Charles and Olivia Charamba, as well as South Africa’s finest gospel musician Rebecca Malope.
She ventured professionally into music as she featured on Sibiya’s song Topa Mbiri off the album New Day. She has also been backing other local gospel musicians based in South Africa.
The track Ndovimba Nemi was recorded as SK Studios in Pretoria and produced by the veteran Tawanda Midzi.
“A number of gospel musicians have shown interest in collaborating with me following the release of Ndovimba Nemi. The song is about trusting God and reminding people of His love,”
“The song seeks to strengthen and build believers in the face of trials and soothe troubled souls. There are plans to record more albums in future and I am ready for the challenge.”
