Bulawayo wheelchair bound Brighton Dzowa set to release an album
A Bulawayo Pumula North based artiste Brighton Dzowa popularly known as Bravo is set to release an 8 track album entitled Success Is The Best Revenge In Life. The album is to be launched in February this year.
Brighton was motivated to use his gift in spreading a positive message in the midst of uncertainties brought upon by Covid-19. One of the tracks from the album called, Corona Virus technically knocked out by God, is one to give people hope and encourage them to keep the faith as God is able to do the impossible even to get rid of the virus currently taking lives and destroying economies worldwide
“These precautionary measures such as sanitising, wearing of masks, social distancing and current lock downs which have locked the socio economic sector of the nation and international world came as an inspiration for me to write the song so as to make it known to everyone in the world that God is able to change the situation. I realised that life had automatically changed for all of us at globally and people had to adapt to suit the turnaround of life,” added Bravo.
Bravo worked with one of Bulawayo’s music producers, Nashville at Rock Up Studios on the album, “I started recording the album in November 2020 with my colleagues Sibanda Mandlenkosi a.k.a Mzokola, Mlotshwa Mehluli a.k.a Mawoshkosh, Tsvangirai Sebastian a.k.a Melunda, Nkosana Sibanda a.k.a Shevy-Yum and my performance manager Gwangwaya Robson Tererai a.k.a Terrie. This is our second album after the 2005 one called No Retreat No Surrender which unfortunately never got released.
Brighton added that he was currently working with Nashville to create a meddle track with all the Rock Up Studios artistes who include Mechanic Manyeruke, Albert Nyathi, Khuxman and Madlela as well as other upcoming musicians.
“I am hoping to get my second album launched in February by the grace of the Almighty despite facing challenges as recording charges are continuously rising.” Dzowa who is unemployed and a father of four told CORAH he is facing challenges of getting sponsorship to produce videos, proper PA system and marketing, he is appealing to the corporate world and individuals for donations towards his music.
He urged upcoming artistes to remain strong regardless of the challenges and also called on Zimbabweans to embrace the Covid-19 regulations set by the government and World Health Organization.
