ONE of Mathias Mhere’s most-trusted backing vocalists is itching to meet songbird-of-the-moment Tamy Moyo.
Not only is the backing vocalist “crushing” on the young diva, but Nash Tarrus − real name Tinashe Tarasana − remains in “dreamland”.
The Kuwadzana-based singer showed his appreciation for Tamy after recording a love song dedicated to the diva.
Aptly named Tamy, the love song, which has since been uploaded online, is also Nash Tarrus’ first secular track in his career.
He has a single gospel album titled Ishe Makanaka released in 2019.
However, it is Nash Tarrus’ “crush” on Tamy which has seen him departing from the norm a bit to record a song dedicated to the recent Star FM Listeners Choice Awards treble winner.
“Firstly, I’m a gospel artiste who has been working with Mathias Mhere as a backing vocalist.
“Previously I have worked with Gamuchirai Magadzire and briefly with Chengeto Brown before I rejoined Mathias Mhere.
“However, I have always wanted to meet and work with Tamy Moyo and just talk with her in general and exchange notes.
“I then decided to compose a song dedicated to her where I used another different character to represent her.
“The song is named Tamy and I’m just crazy about her because she is really good and talented,” he said.
However, the 26-year-old said he was “heart-broken” because he can’t get access to Tamy and have “selfie” moments with her and exchange notes.
“I don’t know how to approach her, but one thing that I wouldn’t hide is that I really like her music, personality and professional conduct.
“It’s evident that her portfolio is run by professional people and I wouldn’t mind meeting her handlers and learning from them,” he said.
Despite recording a secular track, Nash Tarrus said he remains committed to gospel music.
“I know that many people might think I am now lost by singing secular music, but I will remain a gospel artiste.
“It’s only that there is need to be creative and innovative in this industry and I am learning a lot from Mathias Mhere,” he said.
The singer said he was willing to collaborate with artistes from other genres, saying musicians need to think outside the box.
With Mhere, Nash Tarrus said he has learnt to be professional and committed to his work.
“Mhere is a professional artiste who has always blessed my journey. I will take his advice and take risks in life,” he added.
