Working with Manyowa, Zimpraise
Being a part of the Executive Committee at Janet Manyowa Music and successfully hosting a sold out album launch is an achievement I will never forget. It came with its challenges but it also became one of the most successful gospel concerts to date. I was also the music director for that launch. Janet Manyowa got awards for that album and I am proud to be part of her winning team.
I was also a part of the Zimpraise executive committee that organised and hosted the festival that hosted Bishop TD Jakes, Bishop John Francis, Zaza Mokhethi, Nqubeko Mbatha and his wife Ntokozo Mbambo and many other special guests. I directed all the music that year. That experience was such a highlight in my own career and it afforded me relationships and networks that are priceless to me to this day.
