United Kingdom-based promoter Blessing Manhando popularly known in the music circles as Propa Bless has opened a studio in Mbare.

Named Propabless Entertainment, the studio has been completed and is set to start operating next week.

Manhando said the passion to support local music has led him to come back and assist Zimbabwean artistes who are finding it difficult to make it in the music industry.

“I just feel I have to give back to society, not everyone is given a chance in life, some people have talent but it’s never realised until someone gives them the map and opportunity to do so.

“I bought all the equipment in UK so we are looking forward to produce quality music for our artistes,” he said.

He said despite being a Zimdancehall enthusiast and promoter, his studio is set to cater for artistes from different genres including sungura.

“I am not going to be working with artistes from one genre, the studio is open to every artiste be it sungura, urban grooves or dancehall. What I want is to support local music in any way I can,” he said.

The state of art studio is equipped with high definition equipment that is likely to produce good quality music that can match the international standards.

Propa Bless added that it is high time that Zimbabwean music compete with other countries.

“From what I have seen, there is a lot of talent here and what is lacking are resources and support for our artistes. With this studio I am sure we will go a long way in solving some of the challenges artistes have been facing,” he said

He said he has just finished working with Extra Large and three other artistes whose names could not be revealed for professional reasons.

“We have just finished doing a project featuring Extra Large and three girls from Mbare. They have done a good song which talks about child abuse and poverty,” he said.
