Group founder and leader, Givemore Moyo, told The Zimbabwean this week that the group, currently riding high with its second album, UJohane Ebhabhathiza, will trade leather with Platform One on September 28 in an all-night show to be held in Diepsloot.

“We are honoured for this chance to perform alongside Platform One, who have been in the music industry since way back in 1991. They are still riding high and recently released a cracker of an album titled ‘Emseleni’, which they will also be launching,” said Moyo.

“There will be at least 15 groups at the show, from both South Africa and Zimbabwe, including Imvuselelo Yamakholwa and Sisters of Paradise. There are also musicians from other genres like maskandi and rhumba, who will be part of the entertainment diary and we promise to make the show a must-see for all music lovers.”

The 34-year-old leader and his gospel music group, Indumiso Yamakholwa, are already enjoying fair airplay on South African gospel channel, Radio Pulpit and have become one of the darlings of the music genre among Zimbabweans in the neighbouring country. Tsholotsho-born Moyo said the show was one of many planned for the rest of the year.

The most popular tracks in Indumiso Yamakholwa’s latest album include the title track UJohane Ebhabhathiza, traditional 12 Apostolic tune Bazwele Baba, Immortality and everyone’s “anthem”, Izwa Imithandazo, which is a prayer for salvation and redemption from a suffering human being to his creator.
