MASVINGO -South Africa based Zimbabwean cleric and businessman William Chapanduka has released a Covid19 song titled Nyika Yedu.
The track, released on July 25, 2021 is a cry for mercy and deliverance from God over the lethal virus which has claimed over four million lives since 2019 when it was first discovered.
Chapanduka told The Mirror that God holds the key to salvation and people should cry to him for deliverance.
The Masvingo born and bred cleric is also the founder of Christ Resurrection Ministry (CRM).
“I penned the song because it has become hard for everyone to go about their business and many have succumbed to the virus.
“We have scientists and various theories over the virus but all we can do is cry to God for deliverance because he is all knowing and only hope for humanity,” said Chapanduka.
The song was produced by T-Fresh Bits in SA and is receiving air play on several radio stations.
“I am currently working on visuals for the single and the video will be released in September. Nyika yedu is available on YouTube, Google Play, Spotify, Amazon music and Sound cloud,” added Chapanduka.
The cleric is also founder of CRM Praise a 16-member praise and worship choir which released its debut live DVD album titled Then sings my soul in 2019.
“I have worked with several artists among them Jonathan Mgazi on the track Sora ne zviyo, Mandis Moyo who is CRM choir director, music director Alastas Mushoriwa who worked with the late Oliver Mtukudzi and Andy Brown.
“I am inspired by Takesure Zama who uses music to worship and hope to work with him and Thaki Ndou on other musical projects,” added Chapanduka.
