The bromance between contemporary musician Baba Harare and Goodness and Mercy Ministries founder and leader Tapiwa Freddy is getting stronger if a current video project — which also features gospel singer Bethany Pasinawako-Ngolomi and Chibhodhoro Junior — is anything to go by.
The man of cloth is releasing a video of Tinopembera off his 2016 album One Hundred Percent Prophetic, directed by Tamuka Mapembure Hove of Naxo Films, and features Baba Harare, Pasinawako-Ngolomi and Nigel Muyambo aka Chibhodhoro Junior.
Nigel — who is with the Zimbabwe Prison Band — is son to John “Chibhodhoro” Muyambo, regarded as one of the finest percussionists and drummers Zimbabwe has ever produced.
On the video — which was shot in Harare — Pasinawako-Ngolomi and Baba Harare play bride and bridegroom respectively, while Freddy is the bridegroom’s father with Chibhodhoro Junior coming in as the Master of Ceremonies.
Freddy — who is well known for his spiritual spectacles — is not new in the music industry as he has previous projects Mesiya (2002), Serevende (2006) over and above 100 Percent Prophetic (2016).
This is the second video the man of cloth has released, having done another one Vana, off the same album, recently.
He says of this latest video and future projects: “We are encouraging people to wed, because marriage is a gift from God. The Bible even says ‘He Who finds a wife finds a good thing’.
“Art is in my blood, if time permits definitely I will be doing other projects in the near future.”
The GMM founder was the guest of honour at the launch of Baba Harare’s latest album Ramba Wakadzvanya in Harare back in January, where he emerged the highest bidder, buying the former Third Generation Band member’s album for $5 000 after having given him another $2 000 congratulatory gift.
In his remarks at the launch, the Glen View-based man of cloth said Baba Harare was destined for the top.
“Your work is proving that you are your own man and you are destined for greater things. However, the authorities must tighten screws in order to curb piracy.
“There is need for authorities to work on strategies that deal with piracy to help artistes realise their dreams,” he said. DailyNews
