The award-winning musician had worked with Ngolomi on all his four studio albums, but decided to cut ties following the poor performance of his current album, Shongwe, which was poorly produced.
Unconfirmed reports allege that Ngolomi deliberately produced a half-baked album in protest over poor remuneration from the gospel maestro.
He then went on to produce a masterpiece project for promising gospel artist Mathias Mhere, who has been heavily criticized for replicating Shumba’s music style, a source claimed.
“Ngolomi poorly produced Shumba’s album by lowering the vocals. I’m sure if you have listened to it, you hear that the vocals are not perfectly audible, which is direct contrast to Mhere’s,” said the source privy to the saga.
Both Ngolomi and Shumba have played down the allegations as the basis for their differences.
Shumba went on to say that he was simply eager to try a new sound by engaging a different producer which is very normal in the music industry. He revealed that he will be working with prominent producers Peter Mparutsa and Tymon Mabaleka on his forthcoming eight-track album.Post published in: Entertainment
