THE year 2018 has been dubbed “the year of albums” in Zimbabwe as the market is awash with new music.
There is a raging debate with regards to who owned 2018, however, what is certain is that the quality of productions has improved. Now to end this busy year in music production, Sam Dondo is set to drop his third studio album tomorrow, Wednesday December 19 at classy joint, The Venue in Avondale.
It will be interesting to see if the singer finally produces a product that will shake the market as his two previous offerings, “Dyara Minamato” and “Game Changer”, built him a good brand.
The Sunday Mail Society caught up with Dondo, who revealed what fans and Zimbabweans at large can look forward to on his new 10-track offering dubbed “Maturikwa”.
“Fans can expect the initial sound (Afro-fusion) I gave them on ‘Dyara Minamato’,” said Dondo, adding, “I have experimented with other genres but feedback from fans shows that they favour my initial sound.”
The singer, who has performed in Australia and the United Kingdom, is planning a national tour after dropping his new offering. The “Zviuya Zviri Mberi” singer also highlighted that he has changed his approach to music.
“Growth is a process. I have made so many mistakes and I have learnt from them with help from fans and veterans in the industry,” he revealed.
On why they failed to publicise the new album as has been the case with his other productions, he said, “We did not manage to hype this launch as we had limited time to do so but we are already working on a new project so we decided to just release this offering.”
“Maturikwa” was produced by Munya Vialy and Ali Keys while all the mixing and mastering was done by Keith Farquharson.
