The song is eighth in “King and the Queen” – a 16-track album done by top South African singer, Albert Malahlela aka Mavilos. The Limpopo-born singer, who also lead-sings for Dan Tshanda’s crack band, Matshikos, told The Zimbabwean that the House album would be officially launched at Hillbrow’s Safari Hotel on Mar4ch 31.

Other top South African musicians to grace the show include DJ Sunshine, Nigro, Sgidi and G-man, while Zimbabwe will be represented by Zimoxion and DJ Mamba, in a line-up that will see the artists belt out House, Kwaito-house, hip-hop, raga and disco.

“We will also be shooting a video at the show, but we will keep the video for Together we can for a special cancer concert that we are going to arrange as a way of rallying togetherness in the fight against the disease,” said Mavilos.

“I plan to travel to Zimbabwe soon after the launch, to promote the album, which will be sold at the launch and various music outlets locally soon after. The first 50 fans at the show will get free copies of the new album and I promise the best entertainment to them.”

In “Together we can”, Mavilos specifically states that the song is dedicated to the MDC-T Vice President and in the track, he sings in part, “Deputy Prime Minister Thokozani Khupe took a stand and revealed her status”.

He then rallies other African and world leaders to do the same, while urging the entire population to join hands in fighting cancer.

“I felt touched by Khupe’s courage and thought I should honour her with the song and help spread awareness on the disease. Cancer has for long been regarded as a white man’s disease, but here is a senior government official who came out and told the world that she was suffering from it. I found that incredible. She is the kind of leaders this world would be better with more of.”
