Fast-rising music label ThisIs Records, fronted by Russel “Russo” Chiradza will celebrate its fifth anniversary on May 31. A couple of activities have been lined up for this month to celebrate the anniversary. There will be a Party Bus taking people from Harare to Marondera where the main celebrations will be held at Hiparawe farm .

Russo conceived the idea of starting up ThisIs records five years back when he was still part of Nitredy Studio. ThisIs records is part of Thinkvest, a company that is chaired by Spencer Madziya popularly known as “Boss Spencer”.

Thinkvest secretary general Thomas Chizhanje expressed hope that the celebrations would go smoothly.

“We are going to be having high profile, strictly by invitation classy celebrations for ThisIs Records. These celebrations will be marking Russo’s success and what he has accomplished so far. We all know that it is never easy to begin a project,” he said.

Some of the high profile public figures that are expected to grace the occasion include Zimbabwe Union of Musicians patron Webster Shamu, deputy minister of Media, Information and Broadcasting Services Supa Mandiwanzira and socialite Pokello Nare. Russo narrated ThisIs Records’ journey.

“I transformed from being just some guy with a passion for music, a nobody and an ordinary guy,into one of the best producers in Zimbabwe. It was never easy to be in this position but I am proud of my achievements so far,” he said.

“The biggest highlight of ThisIs Records so far is winning the UNWTO theme song competition. Out of 48 entries we were number one with the song that I wrote and produced, it was used as the main song for the event. This was a really big event in Zimbabwe and to be part of it was like a dream.

“I want to thank each and every artiste that I have worked with over the past five years. The fact that you work with me shows that you have faith in me. Mostly I want to thank my fans, it is because of their support that I have reached where I am today. Mmy team, Thinkvest where I am the CEO, the guys who are running Platinum Entertainment and ThisIs Records.

“Special recognition to Boss Spencer Madziya our chairman, Chibvunye Ishmael our finance director, Howard Baude administrative director, CST board member and Big Dollar Bruce our operations manager, thank you for making my dream and my vision bigger.”
