Zim singer makes waves in SA

Zimbabwean singer Callmore Mpofu is making waves in Johannesburg with his second album, 2Bowbow vs State.

The album, released early last month, has become a favourite on South African radio stations. It sees the Bulawayo-born singer abandon the hip-hop beat he used in his debut for the more popular Durban kwaito.

“I’m glad that I’ve found success at last and new doors have kept opening for me. I started singing professionally in 2010 and released my first album the following year, but it did not do well, I think it was partly because of bad marketing,” said the musician who lives in Orlando East, Soweto. “I have always believed that music is my calling, so when hip hop failed me, I decided to change and be more African by recording kwaito. It’s a genre I understand better because of my township background.”

He plans to tour around the country performing the new album.
