Memories of Selmor Mtudzi’s successful Dehwe reNzou album launch will
be rekindled today Friday 10 July as the Diva rebroadcasts the event on
Zimbolive and her Facebook page.
Speaking about the rebroadcast, Selmor Mtukudzi’s publicist, Reginald
Chapfunga said “We are really excited about the rebroadcast set for
today at 8 pm as it will give our fans from all over the world an
opportunity to watch the band on stage. It will also recapture the
magic of the day for those who attended the launch or watched it live
on ZTV early this year.
“We invite all our music fans to watch the one hour long show as it
not only gives them a feel of Selmor’s live performance, choreography
and music arrangement prowess but also guarantees the future of her
father’s music legacy.”
Chapfunga said during the launch, Selmor will sample tracks from Dehwe
Renzou and also play some of her father’s all-time hits. He said the
show is a must-watch for Oliver Mtukudzi’s fans. Selmor will be supported by the King of Sungura, Alick Macheso.
A fusion of Afro-Jazz and traditional local beats, ‘Dehwe Renzou’ is
an 11 track album produced by Steve Dyer at Dyertribe studios in South
Africa except a single house track which was done by McDee.
Steve Dyer is renowned for producing Oliver Mtudzi’s platinum album
‘Tuku Music’. He also produced ‘Bvuma’ and ‘Paivepo’, albums which
totally changed Mtukudzi’s music fortunes. On the other hand McDee is
credited for producing Selmor’s popular house tracks like ‘Hangasa’
and ‘Nguva Yangu.’
Veteran Black Spirits members Picky Kasamba, Never Mpofu and Sam
Mataure also featured on the album. Picky Kasamba did backing vocals
and percussion whilst Never Mpofu and Sam Mataure played bass and
drums respectively. Legendary South African musician Vusi Mahlasela
popularly known as ‘The Voice’ also features on Mbodza.
