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.
