A Gwanda-based policeman Samuel Sokosi is set to release a second gospel album titled Siya Zvenyika early next month.
The six-track album is set to be played on the State broadcaster ZBC before being made available to the general public in the streets, Sokosi told Southern Eye Lifestyle.
“My second album will be released on radio and from there CDs will be made available for sale nationwide as we are trying to reach out to every believer and non-believer in the country, as God commissioned,” he said.
The album was recorded at Lagg Beats and Vibes Studios. It carries tracks such as Ndichamunamata, Sei Usingade Kumunamata featuring Seku B, Munoziva, Danai Jesu, Nguva Ikupera which he worked with Clay Moja and the title track Siya Zvenyika which he compiled with Sam Chasakwa.
“Munoziva talks about my life and how God knows what my life holds for me tomorrow and to appreciate that everything that happens to me is God’s plan in my life.
“Siya Zvenyika is all about giving your heart and soul to God and not to worship worldly things. Man should not love earthly things over God, even if one has money, a good job and family — that is not enough before you find Jesus. For it is said that seek first the kingdom of God and everything shall be added unto you,” Sokosi explained.
The cop-cum-musician said it was his wish and prayer that the album would make a major impact in lives of many Zimbabweans.
“I am praying that this album touches everyone’s heart and conscience. It is my wish that people be healed and repent through this album,” he said.
Sokosi, who has been in the police force for the past four years, said he loves doing his police duties as well as praising the Lord at the same time.
“I do music after work and I always make use of my off duty days, this is how I have been managing to handle the pressure that comes with being a musician and a cop,” Sokosi said.
The Kadoma-born Sokosi grew up in Masvingo before moving to his current base in Gwanda. His first album Ivai Nesu rocked the airwaves last year.
