RIDING on the wave of the recently released video — Chikuru Kudzoka — featuring hit musician Baba Harare, Prophet Tapiwa Freddy has explained the meaning of this forthcoming album title, Kastep Kenyasha, which has since taken the country by storm.
The album title which has generated mixed feelings on social media networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter is set for release next month.
The Goodness and Mercy Ministries (GMM) founder Prophet Tapiwa Freddy courted controversy with the single that features Baba Harare of the Hat Yemurara fame that also starred female comedian Gonyeti.
“The album Kastep Kenyasha was inspired by the lives of people that have gone through full spiritual transformation; are now born again and are a testimony that the Almighty is working wonders in their lives.
“People have asked why the album is titled Kastep Kenyasha and my response is that it’s easy to pick out someone who has gone through spiritual transformation from a crowd because of the way they carry themselves,” said Prophet Freddy.
The new album will be launched at 7 Arts Theatre in Avondale, Harare on 5 July.
The musicians featured on the album — Mathias Mhere, Bethen Pasinawako, Baba Harare and Kudzi Nyakudya — will also serve as supporting acts at the album launch.
Kastep Kenyasha will be his fourth album.
“I have a passion for the arts, but it’s unfortunate that I have a demanding duty to serve God.
“The single, Chikuru Kudzoka, is now available and can be accessed through our church Goodness and Mercy Ministries and has also been distributed to different radio stations around the country,” he said.
Early this year, Prophet Freddy released two videos of songs Vana and Tinopembera, a song off his 2016 album titled 100 Percent Prophetic.
He describes music as another way of ministering the Word of God.
Last year the preacher released a single titled Mwariwe. He has been involved in music since 2002. His other previous releases include Mesiya (2002), Serevende (2006) and 100 Percent Prophetic (2016).
