Gospel musician Reverend Togarepi Chivaviro will tonight unveil his 18th album titled Kana Wakayambuka online.
The album launch was postponed from January 22 to April 2 due to the Covid-19 induced lockdown.
Chivaviro has to date composed 15 albums and three hymns under his belt having churned out hits including Ebenezer, Mhepo Inoperekedza and Maranatha.
“The six track album is a gift thanking God for protecting the human race from the pandemic, we are happy to launch the project online and reconnect with our fans through god music.
“Most of the songs are party songs and we are taking the chance to thank God for protecting us during these trying times when the world is facing a pandemic,” said Chivaviro.
The United States based singer makes a return after a two-year sabbatical.
He feels the album comes at an appointed time when his fans are in lockdown making it easy to relate to the message.
“We are calling to all our followers to join us during the virtual launch on Facebook and Instagram for the project is dedicated to each and every one of them.
“The success of the album is in the endorsement by the fans and we have to do this together as they join us from Africa, Asia and the US,” he said.
