It seems award-winning gospel hip hop artiste Mudiwa Hood who launched his second album over the weekend took the event as a platform to showcase some of the upcoming gospel hip hop artistes.

The function which was scheduled for 6pm started an hour later with at least more than 10 performances from upcoming gospel artists.

Among the upcoming artists who performed are GGB currently staying in South Africa, Yoo Kay, Flebbz, Spirit praise, a dance group Kingdom praise among others.

Basing with the people’s responses on the event, Zim Gospel hip hop still has a long way to go to gain popularity since most of the artists failed to impress revellers to an extent that the master of ceremony ended up begging people to just stand up and dance while these upcoming artists were performing.

After noticing this, the organisers had to change the program and introduced Thembalami of the “Trading my soul fame” who did not disappoint as he managed to put the crowd on their dancing shoes.

After Thembalami came one of Zimbabwe hip hop legends Shingirai Sabeta popularly known in the music circles as Mau Mau who also proved that he is one of the founders of the genre in the country after putting up a sterling performance.

He performed his resurrection single he released in 2013 “Ndamutswa” and it managed it bring the house alive.

Though the event started on a low note, Mudiwa managed to pay back his fans with a polished act when he stormed the stage with his hit “Ndeweminana” , “I no go fall” and a love song he did with Nox called “Shinga”.

The main highlight of the night was when Mudiwa invited Bashupi on stage for “Kubwinya” a song they collaborated on.

With BaShupi’s energetic performance the house got on fire.

The event was graced by the Deputy Minister of Sports Arts and Culture Tabeth Kanengoni, Spirit Embassy pastors, musicians Trevor D, Joseph Madziyire, AAG Chairman Chamu Chiwanza among others.

Speaking on the event Mudiwa said he was happy to be launching his second album Mwana waMambo and thanked Spirit Embassy founder Eubert Angels for the support.

“I am grateful today to be launching my second album “Mwana WaMambo” today, mwana wamambo ndimambo . . . anyone from the royal family is a royalty, Jesus Christ is the king and so do I.

“I want to thank everyone for the support and a man who is not present here and that’s my father Eubert Angel, wherever you are, I love you father,” he said.

Speaking on the same occasion, Chamu Chiwanza encouraged all the upcoming artists to be learned saying Mudiwa’s success was because he is educated.
