Epic! That is the word to describe those performances and I want to single out Courtney Antipas Sharon Manyika Machingura Michael Mahendere Kudakwashe Mutsvene and Janet Manyowa for those big acts with a very special mention to Ngonidzashe Mavera Aka Prophecy!

His double up with my boy Takura Shonhai on Jehova was what can I say? Sick! In hip hop lingo. It was amazing to say the least. It’s a clean bill of health for the PERMICANS from me. A thumbs up!

Zimbabweans have an intractable relationship with Gospel music. While in most other countries the genre occupies the periphery of the industry, it is undoubtedly mainstream in Zim. The biggest gospel artists are often among the biggest entertainers in the country altogether. You would also be hard-pressed to find too many of the industry’s non-Gospel legends without a single (at least debatably) gospel song in their catalogue.
