United Kingdom-based gospel musician Timothy Ngwenya is ready to reunite with his local fans when he tours the country next month. He is expected to stage shows in Harare and Mutare. Ngwenya, who will be sharing stage with South African musician Godfrey Mondlane, Mechanic Manyeruke, Bethany Pasinawako and Kudzi Nyakudya said it will be a memorable tour.

“It has been a decade since I was on stage in Zimbabwe and I am going to deliver a good performance. The ‘Taurai Neni’ tour will be one of the best as I perform songs from the new album in my homeland,” he said.

He said working with different musicians enables him to do and give the best.

“I featured the musicians on the line up on the new album and this is the perfect opportunity to give my fans the album so that they can have an appreciation of my album,” he said.

Ngwenya launched his album in UK last year and Rev Chivaviro was the guest of honour at the launch. He said he was hopeful that his new project will win souls as it has a number of prayerful songs. Timothy who is a young brother to another gospel musician Chaka Ngwenya said the album is a reflection of Christian life.

“There are a lot of things that are happening in our life and we need to pray. I am hopeful that this album will lift up many souls because there are a number of worshipping songs,” said Ngwenya.

Born in Hurungwe the musician grew up in Chinhoyi and has recorded with Gramma Records previously. He has shared stage with several gospel musicians that include Charles Charamba, Michael Mahendere, Mechanic Manyeruke while he has collaborations with Rumbie Zvirikuzhe, Tyra Chikocho and Gospel Power. He is among musicians who started Ebenezer Gospel Promotions that has been taking several musicians to the UK.
