Gospel musician Amanda Sagonda’s album which disappeared six years ago has resurfaced and will be launched tomorrow at KwaMachimbira Resort in Eastview, her manager has revealed.

In an interview with The Herald Entertainment, Amanda’s beau and manager Request Machimbira said the album “Danai Kwandiri” was recorded in 2008 but disappeared after the producer relocated to the United States of America.

“The album was actually recorded in 2008 at Faith World Studios owned by Bishop Manjoro. It was produced by Pastor Manjoro junior who then migrated to the USA before its release.

“We were surprised when Pastor Manjoro called us saying he had found the album in his laptop and he sent us the file but where we took it to Metro Studios and Ngaavongwe Records for production they failed to open it. It was only Jonathan Mugazi who managed to open the file” he said.

Machimbira said Amanda could not record another album after she went through a rough patch.

“You know what it does to the spirit when you do something and it disappears, she could not record another album when the other one was still missing” he said.

He said the “Jesu Number One” hitmaker has been performaning at crusades during her hibernation.

Last year, the singer reappeared on live performance when she acted in a local comedy, “Gringo the Trouble Maker”.

Amanda, who got married to Machimbira in 2006, has four albums namely “Ngatimunamatei (1999), “Huyai Kwandiri”(2001), “Mwari Vanoziva(2003) and “Jesu Havakundikane” (2006).

Gospel diva Fungisai Zvakavapano-Mashavave is the guest artiste and is expected to perform.
