A Victoria Falls-based musician, Blessing Nyagwaya, popularly known as ‘Buju,’ in the resort town has released an album entitled ‘Ndipotiri.’
The album features 17 tracks including the hit ‘Gomarara’ for which a video has also been released.
Inspired by the tragic death of his sister seven months ago due to cancer, Buju, decided to dedicate a song to alert people of this silent killer.
Buju composed the song ‘Gomarara’ expressing his thoughts on a disease he calls the worst killer disease.
Only the power of God can change the situation, he reasons.
“The video, which is his first, is already on you-tube as well as face-book and the responses have been encouraging,” said the artist.
The album also features the tracks ‘Mukombe,’ ‘Kufara Chete, and ‘Patimire Pakaoma,’ which is based on the current economic situation.
Some of the tracks are a fusion of jazz, reggae and Afro-pop in Tonga, Ndebele and Shona.
Although he collaborates with local artists, he recorded his music and shot his videos in Livingstone, Zambia since local music producers are far from Victoria Falls.
Buju performed at the 2013 United Nations World Tourism Organisation (UNWTO) General Assembly and the 21st February Movement celebrations in Victoria Falls.
He is already negotiating with organisers of various events to be afforded the opportunity to perform at crowd pulling events such as the Victoria Falls carnival.
