MUCH reminiscent of Zimbabwe’s former national anthem, ‘Ishe Komborerai Africa’, Joseph Tivafire, Chief Shumba and Pastor E Muzhangiri have mashed up a gospel hit titled ‘Komborerai Zimbabwe’.
The gospel song deserves a chance in the local airwaves for it reflects on the natural beauty of the country. The lyrical composure own its own is a prayer for Zimbabwe.
Charles Charamba’s ‘Nyika YeZimbabwe’ was probably the last gospel track with special dedication to the country.
This time around three musicians set aside their personal glory combining their vocal prowess to come up with this track proving a favourite to many.
The musicians of diverse backgrounds say the song is a gospel revolutionary song and a prayer for the nation.
Speaking to Spotlight Online News Africa, Joseph Tivafire said he teamed up with Hwenje and Muzhangiri to pen a song for the nation.
“Mwari Komborerai Zimbabwe is a song which talks about the goodness of the nation. The track features Chief Shumba and Pastor E Muzhangiri.”
The track sends a prayer to God so that he brings abundant blessings to the nation, people and the government.
“It is our duty as artistes to pray for our country and leadership. We have done this through the power of singing.”
Apart from this, the track also promotes local tourism through a special mention of major tourist destinations in the country. These include Kariba and Hwange National Park.
