A FTER Patience Nonkululeko Moyo, who is based in the United Kingdom, observed that many of her fellow Zimbabweans were going through a rough  patch in their relationships she decided to put it into song and came up with her debut album — Reflections — to offer advice and a glimmer of hope to many in the throes of despair. 

Moyo, who has been working in the UK as a nurse in the  counselling department since 2009, revealed she has handled  a number of disheartening issues involving sour marriages and relationships.

“Since 2009 when I relocated to the UK I have been helping  people with counselling services  on how best to deal with depressing cases, for example which involve men who dump their partners for white lovers are common. Some are in the habit of emotionally and physically abusing their female partners,” she said.

That inspired Moyo to come up with an album that would give hope to the broken hearted.

“After careful consideration I had to come up with an album which I aptly named Reflections as it is meant to give hope to those  who are going through a dark  patch, be it in their relationships  or marriages,” said Moyo who  honed her musical skills while  she was attending Sunday School  at Evangelical Lutheran Church in Zimbabwe. 

Her debut album carries nine  tracks. She has also released three single tracks — Never give up , It’s time to move on and Mr Stupid which she said was liked much in the United Kingdom.

Moyo is on a drive to promote  her latest offering and her  efforts have paid dividends.

“I have approached a number  of local radio stations to promote this album and it seems I have struck the right chord because most of the listeners have  accepted it because songs such  as Never give up, Show me love and My boyfriend have received  much airplay,” she  said.

She believes she will make a breakthrough in the UK music industry.

“There is an online radio  station which has started playing some of the tracks from Reflections and that gives me  hope, which means after reviews  I will make a headway into their  music industry,” she said.
