Armed with a powerful voice, M’Press Pro said the album will feature the likes of Janneke Mushonga and Band Mutare. She said the album will be a mixture of reggae, afro-soul and deep Zulu songs.

“I’m currently working on my debut reggae album. It will also feature other genres such as afro-soul and deep Zulu songs. The album is going to carry six or eight songs. I am still to decide on the actual number of tracks as well as the title. But what I can assure you is that it will be a massive project since I am working with great producers and singers at Ansey’s Studio.”

M’Press Pro, born Gcinekile Dlamini, graduated at the Federation Union of B Artists (FUBA) in 2003. However, since reggae is overshadowed by kwaito, house and R&B in South Africa, she decided to relocate to Zimbabwe, to get more exposure as a reggae artist.

“I came here in 2010. Besides being a muroora (daughter-in-law) here, it was also a decision based on my career as a reggae artist. There is so much love for reggae in Zimbabwe, which is quite different from South Africa. For me, Zimbabwe was the best place for me to grow as a reggae artist. I have learnt a lot here,” she said.

M’Press Pro has been raising her profile during her energetic live performances in Mutare. She has performed at Jam Sessions and Mutare Night of Music.
