Shumba’s last release was Shongwe, after he hogged the limelight with his two previous projects: Ishe Wazvose and NdiMwari. Shongwe didn’t do well in the market because of low production quality, and the singer has left fans awaiting a more polished album.
Shumba suggested his new collection would be released in the February jut gone, but nothing materialised.
“We have been waiting for too long for Mukoma Blessing (Shumba) to release his next album. We want to hear what he has in store for us,” said Alice Tima, a devoted fan.
Another fan, Tonderai Chinyai, said Shumba risked being overshadowed by Mhere, who is basking in commercial success with his current album, Nguva YeNyasha, if he failed to release his project soon.
Shumba had previously informed The Zimbabwean that he would not be working with his long-time producer Lyton Ngolomi, but would be engaging the services of prominent producers Peter Mparutsa and Tymon Mabaleka to work on his forthcoming album.
Other media reports have indicated that Shumba will be working with South African producers.Post published in: Arts
