The drama is set to intensify his current “battle” with actors who have been producing a number of hilarious acts that overshadowed his previous project “Wrong Bag”.

Some of these comedians include David Mubaiwa aka Sabhuku Vharazipi, Lazarus Boora and Loyd “Mabla 10” Kurima the producer the “Bag Rabvaruka” series.

“Baba Nga” as the musician is fondly known admitted that it took them time to come with the project because of poor funding.

“We came a long way to have that project finished but that is our best,” he said.

In the drama the musician featured his wife Precious Kabrito who is known as “Amai Nga” takes the cameo role as the wife to notorious Kapfupi.

The drama starts with Kapfupi and his friend falling into a swimming pool as they admired a woman passing by.

The two went on to attend a funeral where they left mourners in awe with their acts.

Kapfupi denounced child abuse through Majisa (real name Justice Mushorananga) who was raped and infected with HIV by Regina played by Rumbidzai Vingirai.

Charles “Marabha” Merisi came into the scene later with his under-age girlfriend forcing Kapfupi to quip the move. The drama unleashes different issues affecting the society.

In one of the scenes the actors encourage people living with HIV and AIDS and other diseases to take their medication as prescribed.

The musician said he was now working on an album after the release of the drama.

“Comedy is my first love and music is just a hobby. So I have started working on a new album that is expected on the market before September,” he said.

The Epworth-based musician said he was confident the new comedy series would do well on the market.

Kapfupi rose to fame during his stint in Street Theatre performed along First Street Mall together with the likes of Marabha, Bhonjisi and Regina.

His previous productions include “Dindingwe Rinonaka Richakweva Rimwe” and “What Goes around Comes Around”. The Herald
