Namibian based artist Cannah D, real name Simon Kudzanai Nyatondo has encouraged Zimbabweans to take voter registration seriously through music.
Cannah D recently released a singles collection album titled “Mwana Wevhu” which touched on a number of social and governance issues.
The singles collection project carries seven song “Mwana wevhu” , “Mutakati” , “Ka choco choco” , Girl I love you” , “Darly wangu” , “Nhapwa” and “Melissa”.
Nyatondo said he decided to spread the gospel of voter registration to citizens in diaspora because the 2023 election is crucial for every sane person.
He said the pain of living in diaspora should encourage citizens to return home and register to vote and eventually cast their vote when it is election time.
“In the song Mwana Wevhu, I tried to remind people of the importance of voter registration because change is surely needed.
“People are tired and it is essential for those in diaspora to return home and register to vote,” said Cannah D.
The talented chanter who started his music journey in 2016 opened up on the struggles he has faced due to financial constraints.
“I would encourage my fellow Zimbabweans to value unity of purpose rather than pursuing individualism. We must be united first before we talk about leadership.
“We must love each other because it will make it easier for [Nelson] Chamisa to spearhead development when he ascend to the throne,” said Nyatondo.
