Sungura kingpin Alick Macheso has penned another humanitarian song for Zimbabwe Red cross Society as part of his contribution to fundraise for the needy. The song due for release soon has been on rotation at several occasions and plans are afoot to release the song in May during the Red Cross day commemorations.

Speaking from his office at ZimCross Headquarters in Avondale, Macheso said his heart bleeds for the marginalised people and those in need.

“This song is not a ZRCS song per se, but it is a dedication song to all the people who need our assistance across the globe. In as much as I would want to speak face to face with the victims sharing my sentiments towards their difficulties, it was rather easier to speak through a song.

“As ZRCS humanitarian ambassador I have learnt that more needs to be done in our communities. It is my wish to see Zimbabweans involved in helping fellow Zimbabweans. Rwuyo urwu rwunotaura kunyanya pamusoro pekubatsira nechauinacho nekuti chidiki kune mumwe chinogona kuita chinhu chihombe kune uyo asina,” said Macheso.

Titled “Tinokumbira Rubatsiro” the soulful song is about the plight of the less privileged groups.

Those who have been following Macheso’s live shows in the capital must have had a foretaste of the upcoming song and hopes are high that it would probably catapult ZRCS’ humanitarian aid in the country.

Baba Shero, as Macheso is affectionately known in the music circles, pledged to fundraise for ZRCS’ disaster management and relief programmes meant to benefit the vulnerable groups.

Meanwhile, ZRCS is set to drop a sizzling live D which was recorded in Victoria Falls before Macheso’s highly anticipated 10th album.

ZRCS secretary general Maxwell Phiri hailed Macheso for his commitment and love for humanitarian work.

“For us Macheso is the face of the Red Cross and from day one he helped us to harness aid from the corporate world. He has made a difference through his devotion.

“He is somebody who is prepared to work for the Red Cross wherever he goes and he takes that with the honour and pride. It is amazing to see how he has assisted the Red Cross in humanitarian work,” said Phiri.

ZRCS is however planning to assist Macheso launch his 10th album which targets the international market through Red Cross global partners.
