The Bulawayo-born Bhebhe recently told The Zimbabwean that fortune struck in 2009, when he went for an audition for the group.

“The officials told me to bring a demo of my music and I did that a few days later,” said Bhebhe. They chose the song Tambira Jehova, which they recorded for the album Joyous Celebration 15; Part Two’ that same year. The song has now made waves both locally and throughout the continent, where we have toured.”

Bhebhe’s aim is to lay a strong foundation for his countrymen who might want to emulate him and be part of the multi-award winning group. Having grown up in a modest family, Bhebhe said he did not have a platform to showcase his talent.

Bhebhe recently released his second single, “Ichokwadi”, for the group’slatest album, “Joyous Celebration 16”. His desire is to see gospel groups back home establish themselves in theinternational music industry.

“African musicians must unite to fight poverty, piracy and racism,” said Mkhululi.

He is happy to see many Zimbabweans in the Diaspora take music seriously and lift the Zimbabwean flag high. His ambition is to go back to Zimbabwe and invest in music, reaching school sand churches.
