South African (SA) based Dj Rabaaz, well-known for pioneering the new sound of Gospel Mbirano in 2021 has just released an English praise God album titled Gospel Mbirano Praise to help market his new sound to the International community of Gospel music lovers.
Speaking to this publication the musician said, ‘Language has always been a barrier especially to many of my SA followers and I believe with this album, I have finally answered their long time request.”
“The intention is to get God’s message to the audience and by using English, a wider audience can have access to the message. I will still be alternating between English and other local languages in future”, said the delighted SA-based Zimbabwean Gospel musician.
Gospel Mbirano Praise is the 6th musical album released by the artiste since 2015 and it comes 4 months after an EP featuring Bethany Pasinawako Ngolomi on Ndingakutendai anei was released. People who worked on the latest album include co-Producer King Solo, Nicholas Musonza on acoustic, Cure Massyv with Amapiano elements, fellow artistes Nashe Ayret & Vee Musakanye on backing vocals and finally Dumarts Films on videos. A video for one of the tracks Power In His Name has also been launched alongside release of this album and 2 more videos for Testimony & Victoriy will be released in the next 2 weeks.
The artiste will bail out some of the new songs at a highly billed Pretoria Gospel Concert this Saturday headlining Dorcas Moyo. New songs can be sampled on all major digital music platforms under Dj Rabaaz Music and RabSim Records stables.
