ZVISHAVANE-based sungura musician Gift “Case” Amuli (pictured above) has released a single titled Hosha Iyi, which was inspired by the challenges faced by the hard-pressed populace due to the Covid-19 outbreak.
Speaking in an interview with Standard Style last week, Amuli said his song was more of a prayer where people are seeking divine intervention as the panacea to the pandemic.
“My song is about seeking help from God so that He can help the world and spare people from perishing. The world has suffered enough due to the coronavirus, therefore, divine intervention is the best solution,” Amuli said.
“After realising that last year we experienced the Cyclone Idai disaster and some areas haven’t received enough rains, I came up with the message of seeking help from God.”
The Wamatuka hit maker said he was utilising the lockdown period to reflect on the progress he has made in his career as well as coming up with new songs so that he won’t starve his fans.
“l spend most of my time writing my music and doing rehearsals at my studio. I also listen to other people’s music as a way of promoting each other as musicians,” Amuli said.
He said it’s high time musicians shifted from traditional ways of doing music and embrace technology in order to catch up with the global village.
