GOSPEL artist Mathias Mhere took the time on Wednesday to thank God for the great things he did for him when he launched his 10th album, Thanksgiving at the Jacaranda Room in Rainbow Towers.
The 13-track album largely honors and appreciates the Lord for His grace over Mhere.
Mhere, Dorcas Moyo and Freeman “HKD” unveiled the album by performing track number two on the album, Acharwa Ndinyerere in front of a receptive audience, signaling that the album might well become a hit.
Mhere’s album has 13 titles including the first title Mukundi featuring Munyaradzi Munodawafa, reminding people that they are winners according to the scriptures and those who walk by faith are conquerors; followed by Acharwa Ndinyerere, Mukadzi akanaka, Taura naye, Nyasha Ndione, Sungano naMwari, munhu anaMwari wake, Shanda Mudzimai, Izita rake Mwari, Ichaperera kuna Pirato, Check your timeAmen ft Garry Tight and Kupfuma iShungu.
Track six, Sungano na Mwari, brings a message of thanksgiving to the Lord for being with the nation during the COVID-19 pandemic at a time when many loved ones have been lost. This track is kind of a wake-up call to the nation that they need to learn to appreciate all that the Lord has done for them because other people haven’t been able to do it to date. Mukadzi akanaka (track three) also discusses the statuses of marriage today and that divorce is sometimes caused by misunderstanding and that a good partner comes from above.
Several artists and social media influencers were present to support Mhere. Gospel Guru Mechanic Manyeruke appreciated the good work done by Mhere as it gave him confidence that indeed the gospel is in good hands and for him as a veteran he can rest knowing that his children (other gospel artists) maintain the right standards.
Mai TT, who hosted the launch with Pastor Comic, also performed her song Mwari Makanaka and she posted yesterday on her Facebook page that she was honored to be given a platform to sing one of her songs at the launch. Madame Boss was also present in support of the man of the moment dressed in a blue suit.
Although the album received a positive response at launch, views and fan responses are yet to be verified and the album currently has 2,300 views on Youtube.
The album was produced by Cymplex, Makumbe Production, Limitless Production, Joy of life studio and Big Sounds Studio.
