SULUMAN Chimbetu reckons his much-anticipated album due for release this Saturday is laden with therapeutic songs.
Titled Entanglement, the 38-year-old’s 10-track album will be finally launched this weekend, ushering fans into the festive mood.
According to the English dictionary, entanglement refers to a complicated or comprising relationship or situation.
And according to Sulu – as the youth icon is fondly known – he has found the painkiller to heal bleeding souls and hearts through music.
“In my new album, I am simply giving people the therapy they need after the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic that we have found ourselves in.
“Such trying times call for people who have ideas and messages that heal the bleeding hearts to come together and as an artiste, this is what I am trying to preach in my new album.
“I have also tackled the issue of love as well as social commentary since it’s relevant for our livelihood.
“I have done my best to ensure that I give my fans stuff of superior quality and not half-baked project.
“I have never doubted my mojo and on this album I have worked with a number of producers namely Oscar Chamba, Knoweldge Nkoma, Vhuyani Kahari and Oskid.
“The album carries 10 tracks namely Fara Nezvako, Bvuma Kusara, Kunda Zimbabwe, Chinyenye, Moyo Wangu, Pungwe, Africa, Mukoma Wangu, Moyo Wangu (Instrumental) and Wandirwadzisa,” he said.
Asked how he was managing at a time he was committed with a number of ambassadorial roles, he said
“I’m just used to working under pressure and any weather so I’m still the same Sulu people used to know.
“To be, every challenge to me is a blessing and as we say in vernacular, hapana gomo risingakwirike.”
