It is a statement made by President Emmerson Mnangagwa during one of his monthly clean-up campaign in January 2020 and everyone went gaga about it.
One talented producer-cum-singer, Pro Sounds, had to make sure the brouhaha in the streets was more surreal with a rare amapiano flavour, featuring the President.
The internet exploded and so did Mangoma whose name, loosely translated from colloquial vernacular, means a collection of songs.
The China based star has been in the game for a short time but hits are just his thing. “Falling” , “For Me” , “African Queen” , “Whine” have all trended at one time.
Now that he turned 24… on the 23rd of July this year, Mangoma is eager to follow the path of wine — and mature with age.
Mangoma is set to drop a big love song Chisuwo which talks about fantasies of a past relationship but before all that happens, the Sabroso Records mix master wants to take time to introspect.
“I just took a sabbatical leave just to meditate on something and also try to grow spiritually. It’s good to understand the purpose of God in your life, it gives you the impetus to do the proper thing.
“I have a song that called Chisuwo that is coming up, let’s say on the right time. The period of covid-19 has been tough but also awakening for us as human beings that God is supreme,” said Mangoma.
Pro Sounds has released a number of songs which propelled him to the top as far as Afro Pop is concerned in Zimbabwe.
A humdinger of an extended play (EP) titled Love Affairs which has songs such as “Tonight” , “Call On Me” , “For Me” and “Wandipengesa” saw Mangoma receive a nomination for the China Foreign Artist Awards, Zimbabwe Music Awards (ZIMA) among others.
He has starred in a Nanjing Anthem project which featured Breyn, Chae ~D, Amy, Michael Brown, Muna and Jayde.
