Gospel musician Mathias Mhere launches his fifth album tonight at Rainbow Towers VIP Lounge. Titled “Double Double”, the album has 10 tracks that carry various messages that reflect on social and Biblical issues.
It adds to his discography of previous releases “Tinoda Nyasha”, “Anoita Minana”, “Nguva Yenyasha” and “Glory to Glory”.
He is optimistic that the album will take his career to another level and hopes to make an impact on the international market.
“The time has come for us to release yet another album and we are optimistic that the album will bring double blessings not only to us but to the people who love the word of God,” he said.
Several musicians have been lined up to perform at the event that will be graced by several guests, among them senior Government officials.
Among the performers of the night are Sebastain Magacha, Takesure Zamar, CCAP Voice of Mbare and several upcoming gospel musicians.
Sources said he has invited Prophet Walter Magaya for the launch though the musician refused to shed light on the matter.
“As of the guests I can’t give much detail, but everything has been set for the launch and all musicians have confirmed their presence at the show,” he said.
Songs on the album are “Double Double”, “Makorokoza Muchurch”, “Seri Kweguva” “Nhau YaNoah”, “Kesari”, “Judas”, “Chanza”, “Nhava Yebenzi”, “Be Still” and “Pharao”.
He hailed his new producer Munya Vhiya for his effort to bring new sound to his music.
“He is a talented man because he has managed to bring some new inventions. I am happy that he is satisfied with our effort,” he said.
Explaining some of the songs the musician said Double Double is a song that tells people that God blesses them in abundance while people who seek God in time of trouble and when they need wealth and abandon him after they get it are blasted in song “Makorokoza Muchurch”.
“Seri Kweguva” is a song that encourages people to believe in God before they die.
Mhere will be talking his new project to Beitbridge on February 27 where he will be performing at Pagomba Café.
Show organisers said that was going to be a great show as they will be hosting the musician for the first time this year.
