There was confusion in the past weeks after pirates sold upcoming gospel musician Trymore Bande’s album as Pastor Charles Charamba’s new release. Save for differences in the lyrics, the beat and the voices are the same. Fishers of Men management reported Bande to the police after they saw his CD being sold as Charamba’s album.

The Herald Entertainment spoke to Bande about his career.

The musician was born in Honde Valley on February 26 and grew up in Samaringa Village.

He did his primary and secondary education at Samaringa Primary and Secondary Schools respectively.

“I started singing in 2005 after I finished school in 2004 and truly speaking I was inspired by the music of Pastor Charamba,” he said.

For him, recording his first album “Old and New Testament” was not easy and it took him two years to release it.

“It was not an easy journey for us and we recorded in 2005 but released it in 2008,” he added.

The “Uchandiramba Peter” singer got married to Fortunate Chinonzura in 2008 before being blessed with a daughter that same year.

Currently, the musician has decided to venture into full-time music.

Other recorded in 2009 and 2010 were “Discover to Discover” and “The Scriptures” respectively but they failed to make an impact on the music industry.

Although the current album “Zvakagara Zvakadaro” has caused a conflict between the two musicians, Bande said Charamba remains his father and mentor.

“He remains my father in the music industry and I will talk to him like before, when I even curtain-raised some of his shows,” he said.

He urged people to keep on supporting Charamba and his Fishers of Men work together with the public to fight piracy.

“We should keep on supporting him for the work he is doing. We are also supporters of Fishers of Men and we should work with the public to fight piracy.”
